Trend: Summer Sneakers
Try a black cotton sundress, gold bangle bracelets, a tan clutch, and slip on sneakers this summer.

Trend: Tribal Prints
Tribal prints are back in. A neutral colored tribal print romper pairs well with a small clutch, gladiator sandals, and simple jewelry.
“Prints are big altogether, but tribal prints are bold this summer. Peasant-inspired and embroidered Romanian shirts are popular in bright colors and sheer fabrics. Fringed bags, gladiator heels or flats, and multi-stacked bracelets help achieve the bohemian vibe.”

Trend: Maxi Dresses
Dress your average summer style up with a cotton maxi dress. Accessorize with a roped beach tote, scarf, and flip flops.
“One summer trend must-have is the maxi dress. Strapless or with spaghetti straps, solid colored or patterned, cotton or chiffon, add one or a dozen of these dresses to your summer wardrobe.”

Trend: Full Skirts
To dress up your normal tshirt, add a full, colorful skirt. Pair with flip flops and gold jewelry to complete the look.
“I love the full midi skirt trend that is so hot this season. The volume helps you keep your cool, and the length provides modesty when enjoying a picnic in the grass or fireworks on the shore. I love toughening up this girly silhouette with a rocker tee, chambray shirt, or denim vest. Add a messy ponytail and some kohl liner for a perfect summer look that’s tough but sweet!”
