With the first official day of summer being only 2 days away, it’s time for us to cover the hottest fashion trends for the 2013 summer season. Here’s a peek of some of the summer looks that will keep you feeling cool and looking hot .
You “Red” My Mind !
From the catwalk to the poolside. Red lips are everywhere this summer. The tip to picking out the best shade of red for you is to pair up the red with your skin tone, a lot of ladies make the mistake of trying to coordinate the proper red with their hair color instead. My top favorite red lipsticks include “Russian Red” by M.A.C. Cosmetics $15.00, “Rouge Per Couture” by Yves Saint Laurent $35.00 and “Pure Red” by NYX Cosmetics $6.00
The key to successfully pull off an elegant sheer look is to always remember to balance out the amount of skin showing with the amount of skin covered. Like this look from
“Fashion to Figure” $22.00 . If you want to add a little umph go with neon undergarments as accessories or if your not looking to draw attention to your assets but would still like to rock a sheer get up you could always add a nude tank top to give you the coverage that you desire while still keeping the look sleek and sexy.
The Pattern Clash.
This mixed print bomber jacket from “ASOS Curve” $77.00 is lightweight and right on trend. The rule of thumb when it comes to pattern clashing is to make sure the patterns are completely different, so that its obvious that the clash was purposely done. When you pair two (or more) patterns together that are very similar you can give off that the look was unintentional, messy or not very well put together.
Stripes, Stripes and more STRIPES !
This summer there is no such thing as wearing “The Wrong” stripes. This sexy and slimming high waist 2 piece bikini by “Monif C” $95.00 Will have you looking flawless. This bikini features a reinforced waist with lining in the front as well as in the back to give you the coverage and support to keep you looking fierce !
This summer everything is neon. Like this cute “Princess Vera Wang Sally Lace Cross-Body Bag” $50.00 From neon nail polishes, to accessories and even hair color. Not sure how to attack the wild animal known as neon colors ? Well here’s a tip. When in doubt with neons, neutralize the bright with a basic color I.E. Bright neon pink skinny jeans always looks great paired with a plain white blouse. If you feel that you are a more experienced fashionista then phase 2 would be to colorblock. Be very weary of the colorblocking method because this can go aery very quickly. Stick to colorblocking with shades that are good for your skin tone then you can always accessorize with a chunky bracelet or belt to tie the look together.
Go to colors of the season: Coral & Mint .
Turn some heads this summer in the asymmetrical number from “Forever 21” $28.00 The 2 hottest colors of the season are Mint Green and Coral (Peach) Orange. These colors are a great way to freshen up your summer style. You can basically wear these colors with anything, Shorts, Skirts, Jeans, Together, By itself etc. So next time you go shopping make sure to at least grab 1 piece with this seasons summer hues to create an effortless beachy look.
