Safari style is a definite must, even if you wont be ten feet away from elephants, giraffes, and rhinos this summer. Colorful beaded necklaces spice up any outfit with their tribal-esque look. For unique beaded necklaces, check out local boutiques that are sure to have a plethora of options from designers in your area. Patterned skirts are another key to cool safari style. For cheaper options, check out the skirts at Forever 21 such as these:
From Left to Right: Ethnic Woven Skirt, $14.90; Tribal Prints Skirt, $14.90
Finally, to complete to safari look, make sure to include some neutrals and chunky jewelry in the mix.
If setting sail this summer, make sure to protect yourself from harmful rays (while remaining glamourous!) by sporting big sun hats and shades. A light and breezy tunic is another essential- especially because it is so versatile! Throw it on over your swimsuit by day, or pair with your favorite pair of skinny jeans and wedges for a casual evening look. And of course, no fashion fiend can survive the summer without a cool pair (or several cool pairs!!) of sandals. Feel like a movie star but not on the same budget? No problem. Stores such as Designer Shoe Warehouse and Steve Madden have these trendy summer looks for less! Check them out online at www.dsw.com or www.stevemadden.com.
Whether you will be hitting up some carnivals this season or just like the look, the Summer 2010 Shopping Guide gives us insight on how to dress the part. The festival look is all about sparkle- yes, we are talking beads, sequins and rhinestones! French Connection seemed to have hit the nail on the head with this look, as its summer line includes several bejeweled frocks and skirts. A personal favorite is the “Fancy Dress” ($268) pictured below.
If you are more into the “surfer chic” style, make sure to sport some killer tie-dye before hitting the waves. White watches continue to be a popular (and practical!) accessory this summer, and “Toy” watches are one of the best brands (check out image below). Style.com’s “Summer 2010 Shopping Guide” offers a unique twist to the oh-so-popular cutout look. This look has now been applied to the world of bathing suits, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for this hot trend in stores this summer!
And finally, if you are a city girl this summer, make sure your wardrobe is stocked full of simple and chic day dresses. Pair these with a comfy pair of flats and you are set to walk as many blocks as your boss may need you to to pick up his Starbucks coffee. Make sure to check out the “Summer 2010 Shopping Guide’s” Rachel Comey Agronomist dress ($265) which is super cute and easy to throw on!
