June 21 marked the first day of summer. Bold colors, flowing material, lace accents, and vintage galore are the main trends I’m following for this season. I collected some images of a few outfits and accessories that I will be adding to my wardrobe…or something similar to them.
From Essence Magazine, this summer collection emphasizes the “spice” flavor. A very happy and breezy feel, these outfits are pretty easy to find and great to accessorize with. To avoid clogging your closet with multiple pieces that only work for one occasion, look for patterned dresses, skirts, rompers, etc that have different colors. Then you can mix-n-match with different jewelry, belts, bags, and shoes.
From ShopRuche.com, the vintage look is in for this summer. Pastel colors and sophisticated accents are key with this look. Simplicity is also important. Patterned top with solid bottom or vice-versa. Light blazers, retro vests, slim belts, and A-line skirts can be used as the main focus for the outfit. The mix-n-match technique can also work with patterns and colors.
Mix-n-match with colors, elegance, sophistication, and spice. I am on the hunt for maxi dresses and A-line skirts; along with lace tops and a nice pair of sandals. If I come up with anything memorable, I will post soon. Enjoy the summertime.
