STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Dress Up for Summer

Warmer weather is finally here, and it’s so great to be able to get outside and soak up the sunshine. Warmer weather means shorter hemlines and brighter colors. It’s time to put away our oversized sweaters and slip into our favorite summer outfits. The perfect way to celebrate the change of season is a dress that is flowy and bright.

This Fashionista celebrates summer with an effortless summer look. She is wearing a mint lace dress. The dress is perfect for hot summer days because it is made of light material that will allow her to stay cool. Mint is such a popular color for summertime and it looks great when you are sporting a tan. She layered a Madewell denim jacket over her dress. This jacket is perfect for summer, because summer nights often get chilly—or if you are indoors, the air conditioner is usually on blast. The denim also makes this outfit more casual rather than more dressed up. She also wears white strappy wedges that look great with almost every summer dress.

To complete this look, she adds a multicolor flower statement necklace. This brings a variety of color to her outfit. She also wears simple sterling silver jewelry. She stacks a sterling silver pearl bracelet with a monogram bracelet. Everyone is obsessed with monograms nowadays and will put them on anything they can find. The monogram bracelet enhances her ensemble with a personalized piece. This Fashionista keeps her outfit effortless and fun with simple accessories that complement her casual yet chic style.
