Well, it’s that time of year again, ladies…time to take inventory of your wardrobe and get inspired by some of this years hottest looks and hues! With only a few weeks to go until the official start of summer, it’s only fitting to start talking about what the trends of this summer will look like. Once again vivid colors and soft neutrals are all the rage. From scorching red to vivid orange to elegant black and white, you will find a color that fits your look this summer!
Orange is on the top list of color trends for this summer. Whether you opt for bold orange, orange look or splashes of orange, there is a wide palette of choices. Yellow is another hit for this summer. As a general fashion rules, when orange is big, so is yellow. Red is yet another big trend for this summer and looks great next to orange and yellow. Along with these colors we also have our traditional summer looks, white, black & white combos, neutrals and nudes.
The biggest trends this summer season include longer lengths, as seen on long maxi skirts and maxi dresses. As well, look for bright colors to be a prominent trend this season and incorporated into bright floral & mixed print pattern dresses. Especially look for tribal prints featured on cute little dresses.
So often we just buy or plan our clothes and outfits as individual pieces, we never imagine how they all come together into our personal style. If we wanted to describe our own personal style we would spend a few minutes hemming and hawing a lot and finally say something like “I’m pretty casual.” But it doesn’t take much to get past that. The key is to know what your doing and looking for!

Summer is about being comfortable in your own skin and having fun!
