Summer Outfits as Refreshing as a Cold Drink

Summer is a time to play, and that means playing with your style. Update your look before the last days of summer rush upon us. Push out of your comfort zone by trying new combinations of prints and colors. Explore old favorites you may have forgotten, and you could find they are the easiest outfits to rock the summer. It’s all about exploring the breeziest summer fashions going. No need to sweat summer dressing.

Feeling a little cautious about diving into a summer trend like an off-the-shoulder blouse or a bright neon color?  Ease into the newest fashion by pairing a piece with one of your tried and true items. Try wearing wild tropical prints with smaller, more structured ones such as stripes or gingham. If the contrast of pattern on pattern feels too bold for you, mix a combination of bright solids instead.

The neutral palettes found in nature—like whites, tans and cargos—are a great inspiration for a very laid-back style. Keep the beach vibe going by accessorizing with a tote or slip-ons in natural fibers.

What could be easier than voluminous breezy blouses paired with linen trousers? You’ll get more breathing room with a shirt that doesn’t hug your body. Choose linen pants with a drawstring waist-band to let out if you indulge in a few too many BBQ servings. With fabrics this comfortable, you’ll be able to forget you’re wearing them.

Denim shorts and a button-up shirt work for just about any casual summer occasion. The ultimate in breathability for shirts can be found in light cotton fabrics or soft linens. Pick yours out in the ultimate summer print: stripes! This combo works whether you’re running errands or heading to a cookout, and it’s the staple beach uniform to toss on over a swimsuit.

Lend just a touch of formality (but not too much) to your summer wardrobe with a wrap top paired with white denim jeans and open-toed heels. The cinched and pretty tie of a wrap top makes this look flattering to just about every body type
