It’s summer. Yay! Well, almost. Let’s start our summer checklist, Fashionistas. Okay so first, do you have sunblock? Check. A couple of tank tops, shorts and a pair of sunglasses? Check. Great, now did you pack that cute skinny brown leather belt? Ugh. Yes, I said it. Don’t be alarmed. You will need it this summer vacation when you are taking that stroll down the Jersey Shore looking to find summer love. You want to stand out from your counterparts fighting for that same summer fling. I will show you how to get a dazzling, effortless, show-stopping summer look!
First, you’re going to need some dresses: maxi, sweater, pencil or even T-shirt dresses will do. This Fashionista got her button-up shirtdress from Forever 21 and paired it with, you guessed it, a skinny leather belt. This prevents it from looking boxy. The ruffled bib on the dress adds texture to her dress and gives it a bit of edge.
Now let’s get back to the must-have item on our summer checklist: the skinny belt. This item can serve as the centerpiece to your casual summer dresses. A belt can be used to dress up your comfortable oversized shirt and can add pizazz to your plain tee. Whether you prefer a maxi, pencil or T-shirt dress you’ll discover that a belt can go with any type of dress.
Last but not least, we can never forget to add some color to our outfits. Especially since it’s summer, you have no choice but to brighten up that dull dress with some color. The secret to adding color? Don’t overdo it. Follow the style of this Fashionista, who adds just the right amount of color to her look with her turquoise cross-body bag.
Follow these summer must-haves and never forget to pair your skinny belt with any of your dresses or try some bright color this summer. Guess what? You can check everything off your summer list because it is complete. Now you’re ready to cruise down that boardwalk in style this summer.
