10 Summer Trends You Need For Your Wardrobe

1.  Nude Flats

Nude flats are perfect for summer outfits because they keep the color scheme bright and are functional. I'm obsessed with heels but the pointed toe on these lace up flats still elongate your legs! Plus, I got these ones for only $25 at Target!

2. Off the shoulder shirts

Off the shoulder shirts are fun, flirty and make you feel prettier... its a fact. There are seriously off the shoulder EVERYTHING - shirts, dresses, rompers, and even bathing suits. (All must haves)

3. Leather backpacks

Seriously, scratch the purse. If you're as lazy as I am when it comes to carrying around (and keeping track) of your purse then get one of these bad boys! One thing to make sure of is that the backpack is leather because it will completely dress up your outfit and otherwise it can look cheap. This is my new favorite from Le Miel and it is 100% Vegan! 

4.Denim, DUH. 

If you asked anybody who has seen my closet they would probably say I own one too many denim shirts. I love denim and the way it can make an outfit. This oversized denim jacket is perfect for this summer to throw on whenever. It looks fashionable while keeping the look casual. I bought this one at Forever 21 and then cut it up myself!

5. Jumpsuits

Is it cheesy to say jumping for jumpsuits? Well literally. Look how amazing this is. My favorite thing about jumpsuits is that they can seem more dressy than a romper but more casual than a dress. Also, you don't have to put any effort into your outfit... just put it on and done! This jumpsuit is from Indah Clothing but I bought mine from Midnight Rambler Boutique. If you are a Denver girl go check it out!

6. White sneakers

     

 

 

Probably one of the most basic things you should have this summer is a pair of white sneakers. They are simple, clean, and go with almost anything.

7. Colored sunglasses

Okay don't think I'm crazy but these monochrome glasses are so in! You can get this pair from free people for only $30 and they have a bunch of different colors! They are perfect for me because I tend to only wear neutral colors, and this is a way to add a pop of color to my outfits.

8. Statement belts

I've recently become obsessed with this Gucci belt. It makes an outfit look complete and much more interesting. It can turn a Forever 21 outfit into something way more fresh instantly! They are sold out everywhere but I have mine on backorder... can't wait!

9. Mesh

Can we talk fashion and function all at once? I love wearing mesh because it gives me a way to show off the cute bralettes I own, plus its so breathable. Which is why it is essential for hot summer days. I got this top from Urban Outfitters for $39

10. One-piece bathing suits

OBSESSED with one-piece suits! They are not only flattering for every body type, but they are so easy. I feel like when a wear a bikini, my bottoms slip down or my boob slips out, its seriously so annoying, If you are just laying out then they make sense, but if you are out and about or actually going swimming, a one piece is the best!
