A Trending Summer in Style

Summer fashions are trending.  Here are the top 4 summer trends I am obsessed with!

1. Bright Blazers: If you are from the South and experiencing this crazy heat like we are in Texas you might be thinking I am crazy. BUT blazers can work in the heat of summer if done right.  A few hints: Wear a loose/light shirt underneath that will look good without the blazer as well. Pick a soft color like mint green, pink, or white so you won't melt in the sun. And plus colors like this pop and will make your outfit a show stopper. Even better, a slightly fitted blazer will make your figure look amazing.

I love putting a blazer with a simple pair of jeans and a tank for a dinner out with the girls! Like this white blazer from H&M.

2. Cropped Jeans: A fun and sassy way to step up your normal jeans outfit. The shorter pant length works with tall heels or your simple pair of sandals. Plus you avoid having to roll up your pants for a walk on the beach or cooling dip in the pool. I am an even bigger fan of colored cropped jeans. Summer is about being bold, your jeans should be no exception!!
Jessica Alba knows how to make a statement in her hot pink cropped pants!

3. Peplum design: I'm loving the trending peplum designs for dresses and shirts. The shape of the flare above the hips so so figure flattering for all body tops because it makes your waist look tinier (who doesn't like that?). I adore the vintage feel this style gives to any outfit, just like a sweet southern belle.

5. Dip hem dresses: Perfect for a big event or a casual day shopping with the girls, just depends on what accessories you pair with the dress. The dip hem gives a special little touch that is unexpected. Show off your tan, summer legs with this dress!

Be bold and daring with these summer trends!! Summer is all about FUN, your style should be no different.
