Your Summer Wardrobe Must Haves

It’s June, so it’s time to update your closet with the newest trends that are here to stay for the summer. Here are my recommendations for the key pieces to purchase to stay stylish all season long. 

1. Straw Bags

Straw and raffia bags are this summer’s must-have accessory. Whether you are headed to work, to the pool, out to brunch with friends, or on vacation, this type of bag will amplify your outfit to give you a casual and chic summer look. These purses come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. With the large assortment of straw bags, there is one for every occasion. Personally, I recommend purchasing a staple straw handbag or crossbody in a neutral tone that will match with every outfit. If you feel the need to splurge, you’ll find plenty of cute embroidered, colored, and patterned purses to brighten up your outfit. Check out some of my favorite straw, woven, and raffia bags.

2. Pastels

Pastels have dominated the fashion scene this spring and summer season, both on and off the runway. Soft colors such as baby pink, sky blue, coral, and mint green have found their way into every top designers’ summer line. Wear pastels on the daily this summer by stocking up on pastel blouses, tees, sundresses and denim. And don’t be scared to mix and match shades! If a complete pastel outfit is too much for you, just accessorize with soft yellow nail polish, a pale pink purse, sky blue slides, or even some fun lavender sunglasses.

3. Resin jewelry

Flash back to the 80’s because resin jewelry has made a comeback. Chunky resin jewelry, specifically earrings, is a great way to make a bold fashion statement. By adding this stylish accessory, you can instantly elevate any look and draw attention to your face. Statement earrings have been a common trend for the past few seasons. This summer, resin adds a fresh and colorful twist to the classic trend. You can find these funky earrings in a wide range of colors and shapes to complement any of your summer looks. Here are some of resin earrings that stand out to me!

4. High-waisted bikinis

Put away your tiny Brazilian bikini bottoms, because another ’80s style has made its way into the 2018 summer season. The biggest swimwear trend this summer is the high-waisted bikini. According to Pinterest, high-waisted bikinis are twice as popular on the platform than they have been in years. This trend is catching on due to its ability to flatter your silhouette and provide both a modern yet retro style. Shop my favorite high-waisted bikinis to be the trendiest one at the pool and the beach this summer.
