As summer temps continue to rise, you’ll want pieces that keep you cool. We’re giving our favorite casual outfits a fun, seasonal upgrade by incorporating fresh trends into our looks. From unique colors to sporty footwear, here are three ways to nail summer dressing.
Try a jewel-tone tee for an instant upgrade
If neutrals are generally the comfort zone you live in, it might be time to shake things up a bit. (Don’t worry, we won’t make you venture too far out on the wild side.) To add some excitement to your outfit, start with a jewel-toned pop of color. A solid colored shirt helps inject the jovial mood of summer but without getting too crazy. Styled with a lightweight blazer and stretchy pants, you have an outfit that is polished, fun, and perfectly put-together.
Brighten your look with colorful shorts
If light and bright are words that describe summer, it’s only fitting they be used to describe our clothes, too. Skip the dark denim in favor of seasonally appropriate slim-fitting shorts instead. And to push the style envelope a little further, we suggest choosing a pair in an unexpected color. If you’re unsure of what to wear them with, go for a printed shirt that incorporates complementary shades. Finish off with sleek accessories and shoes that can be worn without socks for a look that screams summer.
Sporty sneakers that kick it up a notch
If there’s one thing we know to be true, it’s that summer is almost synonymous with comfort. That’s why we’re looking to sneakers to bring an effortlessly casual-cool finish to our outfits. But don’t just reserve these shoes for weekends or a trip to the gym. To rock them with a smart-casual look, we suggest wearing a slim-fit button down and chino pants. Since no summer outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses, don’t forget to round out the look with a matching pair of frames.
Now that you know which summer trends we’ll have on steady rotation this season, talk to a personal stylist today about the ones you’d like to try.
