It is summertime; the sun is hot and the water is cold.  While everyone is hitting the pool to cool off, the only thing you are worried about is what you are going to wear when the parties start. The theme of the summer is America, and the colors are red, white and blue. As Fashionistas and Fashionistos we are all just trying to wear the latest trends while sticking out from the rest.

White denim is a great look for the summer, especially when it is distressed. The distressed denim shorts give your outfit a much more relaxed look. Another great thing about white is that you can wear almost any color you want to or you can just stay with neutrals.  An alternative to red, white and blue this summer is camouflage. The camouflage shirt also includes another big trend, color-blocking with white and black. The outfit is pulled together with a pair of light brown leather Polo Ralph Lauren shoes.  Accessorizing can be a little trickier for Fashionistos so finding the right shoes is pertinent, as well as finding a nice watch to dress up your outfit.  Watches are a necessary accessory for anyone’s wardrobe because they never go out of style and they can go with any outfit.

One Simple Change: Denim can be too hot for the summer so you can switch it up with some light-colored denim shorts and still get the classic look you wanted.  If you are wanting an edgier look switch to a slim-fit distressed denim. On top of that, just switch up your shirt for your favorite team’s jersey and you are ready for tailgating!
