Pull Out The Prints
A chic floral dress is a good investment to make for the season. Pair the piece with everything from simple flip-flops to kitten heels.
Streamlined Color Palette
Instead of a full white ensemble, try different shades of creams throughout your look. On a related note: consider switching from red to white wine just to be safe.
In a jean rut? Break away from your go-to denim and try a cool green cargo bottom. It’s basically a neutral, so coordinating the bottoms with other separates will be a breeze.
Dress Up Your Swimwear
If your weekend plans consist of lounging by the pool, styling your swimwear with your clothing is key. Take notes from Sherri McMullen and pair a bikini top with printed high-waisted flare pants.
Rather than sporting a statement top, try an eye-catching bag. This checkered print style from Last Frame will do the trick.

Match Your Accessories
Tie your whole look together by matching the color of your shoes with your handbag. The result is an outfit that feels cohesive, but not overly so.
Accessorize Your Hair
Keep a few silk scarves in reach this summer to throw in your hair. The accessory will instantly bring your look to the next level. Finish off with oversized gold hoops and you’re set.
Whether you’ve been sporting Bermuda shorts the last few seasons or don’t own a single pair, it’s not too late to get in on the trend. Try the bottoms with a simple crochet top or tee.

If you’re looking to add a bit of romance to your outfit, look to a puff-sleeve blouse. You can go as minimal or over the top as your heart desires.
Lots Of Laces
A lace-up detail adds a bit of oomph to a simple sandal. To show off the cool feature, pair the shoes with shorts or cropped denim.
Stylish Skater Girl

A Little Bit Country

On those occasional chilly days in June, layer a graphic crewneck sweatshirt over a dress. To give the look some pizazz, add a belt over the sweatshirt.
