Go Bright or Go Home!
According to Glamour, this summer is all about being bold! Graphic prints and big, bright colours are the key to get you style savvy. Be brave with your graphics and experiment with stripes, florals, and basically any print that makes you ‘OMG’!
Show confidence in your colour palate! Think hot pinks, bright oranges and grass green to make for a standout style statement.
Starting at the Top
If you have been into any high street store lately, it is clear that one of the more prevalent styles for this summer is the crop top. Scary thought for most of us ladies as to bare one’s midriff can be a daunting undertaking. However, the crop top has evolved since its last hurrah in the 90s. Today, crop tops come with a more feminine and less provocative tone, showing less of the midriff (phew!) and offering more of a roomy fit that doesn’t cling to the body thus minimizing any fear of looking like a tenacious teen.
Dress the look down with a cropped tank and boyfriend jeans or pair a lace crop with a high-waist skater skirt for a more ladylike take on the trend.
