My Summer Favorites

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Not only am I out of school and visiting friends I haven’t seen in a while, I am also styling myself with cute and simple clothing pieces and accessories. Summer is the time of the year when I try my hardest to reinvent and upgrade my closet with current trends.

Chokers have been trending for a while now. I just recently got hooked on this accessory. A simple black choker can dress up any outfit without looking too gaudy. I like the simplicity and versatility of the trend. A choker is something that can be worn in any season and it costs close to nothing. I chose to pair the choker with a small pair of pearls, my Alex and Ani bracelets, and a simple ring. I never leave the house without a pair of earrings or without a ring on my finger.

Another summer favorite of mine is printed shorts. I own pairs of shorts with Aztec, mandala, and floral designs. The elastic waistband of these loose and flowy shorts makes them very comfortable to wear. It also gives my outfit a beachy and Bohemian vibe. I usually wear them with a solid colored tank top, but they can also be worn with a graphic T-shirt and flats for a more understated look. Also, if it’s a little breezy out, a leather or denim jacket looks nice with them. Intricate Mandala and Aztec designs have influenced my personal style, especially in the summer.

Wedges and gladiator shoes are my favorites to wear in the summer. My favorite pair is these black ones. They help dress up any outfit and are very easy to walk in. I can wear them with almost any article of clothing. These sandals will never go out of style and can be found at any store.

I like to keep my makeup very natural, especially as it gets hotter outside. Winged eyeliner has always been a challenge for me. However, the tape trick actually helped me a lot! I used a soft pink lip gloss since I was wearing some dark colors. As the days get hotter, I’ll usually only wear mascara with a nude or pink lip.

Chokers, printed shorts, and wedges have been my summer favorites so far. What are yours? Upload a photo on social media and make sure to tag @Cfashionista!
