It’s summertime, ya’ll. And to quote two fly men from Southside Philly, it’s time to sit back and unwind. Long days, hot sidewalks and sticky nights are upon us. Summer is not my favorite season to dress for, but it’s certainly the easiest. There’s no room for layers so simplicity is key on all fronts. Most of us aren’t full-time fashion bloggers, so updating your wardrobe isn’t as easy as calling up your favorite PR girl. Lucky for us, summer requires little fabric and even less layering. For easy and affordable tips to update your summer wardrobe, read on.
A statement piece you should have tucked away from last summer. Rompers have been a staple in the summer wardrobe for years. They are lightweight, easy to get drunk in, and festive enough for any occasion. You can even dress them down for a day at the lake or night by the pool. The silhouette is flattering on any shape, especially longer versions with high slits.
SHOP CUTE ROMPERS
Jackets have been on a comeback tour since Rihanna’s oversized denim phase in 2015. An oversized look is on trend, especially with some sort of cinching mechanism. Faux-satin bombers, light kimonos, and canvas military jackets are dawned by every street style icon. You don’t have to break the bank to get this look. Find a few of your favorite men in your life, raid their closets and, voila!
PRO TIP: Add cute badges to your jacket to make it more unique.
