Summer Trends

These five new trends will spice up your summer wardrobe.


Soft Pants

Soft Pants

They’re soft. They’re pants. They’re soft pants! The great thing about soft pants is that you can find them in a variety of styles and patterns. These pants are meant to have a laid back and casual feel to them. Pair them with light, billowy tanks or T-shirts for a daytime look. You can dress them up with jewelry, a blazer, and heels for a put together office or evening ensemble. If you can’t find soft pants in the length you like, try soft shorts or ankle-length styles. These are great options if you’re on the petite side.





The romper is the best thing to come along since the sundress. It’s a cute and effortless look that everyone can wear. Rompers are typically made out of lightweight fabrics and can be dressed up or down. You simply have to add your own accessories and you’re ready for a day out in the sun. Pair your romper with wedges and a clutch for any special occasion. When the sun sets, pull on a long cardigan or shawl.



Light Knit Sweater

Light Knit Sweaters

Many people love summer for the warm days, but I really enjoy the occasional cool summer night. This is where your new best friend, the light knit sweater, comes in handy. A jacket can be too heavy sometimes, but a light sweater can do the trick and take the chill out of the air. Try wearing your sweater with a pair of flats and shorts for an evening walk or night beside the campfire. Those s’mores can’t make themselves you know!



Tribal Print

Tribal Prints

Tribal prints are very bold and can be found on almost anything. Clothing, accessories, and even shoes are covered in this trendy pattern. This print is usually reserved for winter weekends at a cabin or skiing, but it’s now making a presence in summer clothing collections. Add graphic or plain tanks to a tribal print for a put together summer outfit. Add tribal inspired jewelry, like feathers, to complete the look.



Matching skirt set

Matching Skirt Sets

Matching skirt sets are great for summer parties, weddings, or date nights. They’ve been seen all over the runways and on celebrities, and now you can wear them, too. Skirt sets are very chic if worn the correct way. Make sure the top is hitting you in the correct place and that the skirt aligns with it. Play down your accessories so they don’t overwhelm the ensemble.
