Easy Summer Looks
It's the time of year when getting dressed can be as simple as lounging by the pool with nothing but beach apparel on all day if you're lucky! That lightweight jacket you purchased for cool mornings and evenings probably isn't getting as much attention as it did a month ago. Now, you may find yourself standing in front of your closet trying to recreate that easy breezy summer style you see in magazines and in shops.
Add pops of color with accessories such as shoes, jewelry, and bags, and maintain that hot summer look by keeping in mind that "less is more". No, that's not code for grab that improperly fitting bathing suit –– it means stick to comfort. When creating your summer looks, look for loose flowing tops and pair them with a slim leg capri pant, dresses that flatter your figure and frame, cool fabrics such as cotton and linen, and pieces that are easy to function in and specific for your daily routine.
A fun way to finish a summer look is with jewelry. This necklace from Ann Taylor
adds dimension and compliments the simplicity of this lace cutout dress.
Another way to add some dimension to your summer looks is by using your patterned scarves as belts. This top and scarf would go perfectly with a black capri pant, or even a denim short. Just thread it through the belt loops and tie off the ends for a great summer look.
