Summer Styles

Wearing less in the clothing department is what much of society looks forward to in the summer months. While it is important to dress for the season, it is also important to remain in-style at the same time. Clothing trends change as often as the seasons do, and much of that has to do with what celebrities are wearing. Today, I am sharing with you some of the summer styles that have been projected for this year.

Off-the-Shoulder Tops

Off-the-shoulder tops are fun for casual day outings and gathering with friends for a night out. These comfortable tops can be worn on top of another tank top or alone. They are best paired with a pair of comfortable shorts or a simple A-line skirt.


Camisoles are lightweight and ideal for warm summer nights. A thin undershirt can be worn to sheer camisole options. Cami tops pair well with skirts, shorts and jeans.

Light/Bright Colors

Black is not in this summer. Bright, fun colors are in. Black draws in the sun and can make you feel uncomfortable when out in the sunlight for extended periods of time. Light, bright colors like magenta, orange and teal put your wardrobe in summer-mode and help keep the sun from soaking into the fabric.

Rolled-up Sleeves

Rolled-up sleeves are in this summer. Consider a button-down shirt over a tank top and roll up the sleeves to just above the elbow. You can also roll the short sleeves of t-shirts as well. To keep rolled-up t-shirt sleeves in place, women can easily tuck the rolled part under their bra straps.

It is important to make sure that your sleeves are rolled evenly and without wrinkles. Not taking the time to make sure the look is neat does not follow the trend and leaves an impression of laziness to those viewing your attire.

Slip Dresses

Slip dresses are lightweight and available in a variety of fabric types. Those with a vintage appeal to them, such as a lacey or doily-like bottom are timeless and can be accessorized differently for use on multiple occasions. These versatile pieces are easy to dress up or down, depending on the occasion.

With a slip dress, it is ideal to wear longer necklaces to accessorize. It helps maintain flow and breaks up the fabric a bit. Chunky bracelets and a chunky-heeled sandal completes a sophisticated but casual look.

Doily/Lace Shorts

When wearing doily-like or lace shorts, ensure that there is enough fabric underneath them to cover body parts you wouldn’t want everyone to see. The only skin that should be seen through these shorts is the thigh area. These should be worn with a nice pair of platform sandals or a chunky soled shoe. Pairing these with a crop top or off-the-shoulder top combines two summer style trends into one.

When attempting to follow style trends, take a little creative license and personalize the style to really make it your own. You may have items from last summer, or even the summer before, that are trending now. There is no need to purchase new items, simply make adjustments to what you already have and add a few different accessories to make the outfit appear new.
