Summer Fashion Must Haves

Before you know it the warm weather will be here. Soon you will be packing up the sweatshirts and sweaters in favor for warmer weather clothing. The summer provides all fashionistas out there with a unique opportunity to be more free with their wardrobe. That is truly one of the major joys of this season…aside from no more snow. If you were afraid to take fashion risks in January, May is a great month to take the leap! Here are a few guidelines to help you out when you start converting your wardrobe  to something fresh and fun! Remember, it is all about bright colors, larger than life patters, and of course, showing a little skin!

Big Tote Bags

You have to make sure you have a big enough bag to hold everything you will need for a day at the beach! Aside from the summer essentials – sunscreen, a bottle of water, your favorite magazine, and of course some great tunes – you also need your “usual” items, including your phone, wallet, and keys. The outdoors is no place for a stuffy purse, so trade it in for a big, colorful tote bag!

Sandals

Flip flops, espadrilles, Birkenstocks, hurache, strappy, slides, and gladiators – the list of sandal types are endless! And of course, you will have at least three or four of these sitting in the bottom of your closet. Whether walking around the city, spending the day at the beach, or going for a night on the town, you should have a sandal for every occasion!

Statement Jewelry

The summer is time for embellishing, and it shouldn’t stop at your clothing choices, but also your accessories. It is time to go big, bold, bright, and colorful. Large baubles should be added to every outfit. And don’t forget to include an acrylic necklace in your arsenal of accessories. An acrylic name or monogram necklace is a perfect touch to any outfit, day or night!

Maxi Dress and Linen Pants

Winter is full of heavy clothes like sweaters and heavy coats. The summer means you can box them up in favor of warmer, softer, lighter clothing. Maxi dresses and linen pants are the ultimate in comfortable summer fashion. Maxi dresses are one-piece outfits making them an easy choice, and linen pants are super chic and can be paired with any tank top or lightweight shirt! Be sure to find colors and patterns that fit your personality!
