Little White Dress:
It’s not a secret that the classic little white dress has become a summer staple, with many fashionable ladies sporting the trend everywhere they go! The likes of Olivia Palermo, Taylor Swift and Reese Witherspoon have all gone aboard the LWD trend, so it’s just fitting for you too! Wear your whites with almost anything in your closet, from strappy sandals, hats or chic designer bags.
Slouchy Silk Pants:
Looking for new workwear this summer? Try wearing the slouchy silk pants for a cool-girl vibe in the office. Not only is the trend an ideal piece for warmer summer days, but it creates a dressier appeal compared to your normal work trousers. Elongate your legs by strutting pointy high-heels, or go for a comfy look with flats or sandals.
Floral Midi Skirts:
The rise of floral midi skirts has been quite apparent during last year’s spring/summer 2014 runway shows. With its demure and conservative appeal, it has become easier for women to style the piece in so many ways — even for corporate affairs. Despite a little bit tricky to wear, designer houses such as Céline, Prada and Louis Vuitton have come up with ready-to-wear pieces that are all the rage this season. When wearing floral midi skirts, keep your top simple and choose a higher heel.
Like midi skirts, boxy tops are quite tricky to wear. But celebrities such as Rihanna and Nicole Richie have showed us so many ways to incorporate the trend into our daily wardrobe. Work or play, boxy tops flatter in any occasion when styled accordingly. Because of its masculine silhouette, pair your boxy tops with anything curve-hugging like a sleek pencil skirt or skinny jeans to emphasize your ladylike features.
If there’s a shoe trend that’s clearly making waves this summer, it’s the abundance of neutral-colored shoes worn by almost every woman out there. They not only elongate your legs, but accentuate your outfit, too! Nude shoes or neutral-colored ones such as black or white makes for a perfect summer staple because they do not attract too much attention, yet make a statement on their own.
