Ten Rules of Summer Style
1. When in doubt, wear white.
Crisp whites are the turn-to color of the season for both clothing and accessories. Wear them on their own or as a platform for pops of color and you’ll look cool and chica, regardless of the temperature.
2. Brighten up.
Forget soft pastels and muted hues, this season, it’s all about bold, bright pops of color. Pair yours with white and neutrals or opt for colorful accessories.
3. Get sun kissed.
From yellow clothes and accessories to sexy bronzed skin, a sun-kissed glow is a must this summer.
4. Bare your soles.
Flatter your feet with this season’s bevy of strappy sandals, gladiator thongs, and sexy wedges. Pampered feet and pretty toes are a must.
5. Play it cool.
Filmy fabrics, light-as-air accessories, and lightweight makeup are essential during the dog days of summer.
6. Get dressed.
When in doubt, opt for a dress. Not only is it this summer’s must-wear silhouette, it’s also the easiest. Whether you wear one to the beach with a pair of flip-flops or at night with wedges, there’s a dress out there for every body, occasion and budget.
7. Pick prints.
From tropical florals to crisp graphics, prints pack a punch this summer.
8. Shine on.
Metallic accessories, juicy patents, and shimmery makeup are the perfect complements for bronzed skin.
9. Make a statement.
Bold necklaces and chunky bangles will turn even a basic tank and jeans look into something special.
10. Keep it simple.
Summer is not the time for complicated or fussy clothes. Stick with simple silhouettes paired with one special piece.
