Happy Summer ladies! I absolutely love summer because 1) I love the warmth on my skin, but 2) I think this is when we as women can creatively exercise our fashion sense the most and dress according to our moods. In winter, you don’t have time for that. Don’t get me wrong; you can definitely slay a mean winter outfit with knee high boots, a chunky scarf, and a killer trench coat, but at the end of day, your main priority is being warm and sometimes the cold just doesn’t allow for the slay. Another plus to the summer swag is your hair. For my naturals, this is the perfect opportunity to let your curls go wild and do their own thing. That goes with the perfect laissez-faire summer vibe.
This summer, I encourage you to be bold and courageous (especially for my East-coat fashionistas who suffered that terrible rain)! Here are some of my personality summer outfit ideas:
- Work: Shift dress, nude/black open-toed stilettos, chunky jewelry
- Festival/concerts: print leggings, flowy top, single-strap sandals
- Dinner with the girls/your man: skinny jeans, lace top, cut-out boots, floppy hat
- Church: floral skater dress, small necklace, flats
My personal favorite for this summer is strappy sandals. However, you have to be careful to not be overkill with the outfit that you choose to wear with this footwear because you will bring a lot of unnecessary attention to yourself. Remember, the goal is to look effortlessly awesome. I would wear a rather simple outfit with this item such as a: solid-colored t-shirt dress or solid-colored pencil skirt; the shoes make a statement on their own.
Ladies, let us know your favorite summer trends or how you wear some of the ones discussed!
