Farewell Summer

 

It’s hard to believe the end of summer is officially here! This year has been full of so many great memories & I can’t wait to see what this next season has in store! Although I love summer, fall is by far my favorite season. Fall fashion calls for layers, cardigans, boots & weddings, but before I start talking about how much I love fall I wanted to get one last post to end this summer.

Some people are a little shy when it comes to wearing bright colors. Just like wearing bold prints, the best way to style bright & bold looks is to balance it with some neutrals or my personal favorite, black! Everyone needs to have a pair of black denim in their arsenal, I personally own 3 pairs myself.

I’m no sports guy, but this jersey style t-shirt from H&M was calling my name when I saw it on the rack. I love the bold color & simple design, it’s the perfect kind of top for someone wanting to get a little color in their wardrobe without being overbearing. I chose these faded black skinny jeans &  a black dad cap to pull everything together. This bright & clean look is the perfect fit to end the summer!

One of the many things I love about summer aside from ice cream & well… ice cream, is the fact that white pants & floral shirts are socially acceptable. Before I continue I would like to make it known, I’m fully aware these aren’t for everyone, but hopefully by the end of this I can change your mind on at least one thing.

When I said “floral shirt” you probably imagined a bright-colored, Hawaiian printed, dad shirt. As you can see that’s not the case here. There are plenty of options when it comes to floral shirts. I got this piece from J. Crew & it goes with almost everything. I generally pair it with a dark wash denim & a denim jacket for a more casual look or to dress it up I throw on a nice pair of chinos with some wingtips. For the sake of summer I decided to throw on a pair of white distressed & I am not mad at the outcome!

HOW TO WEAR CAMO

 

Camo, is not just for “the boys in green” anymore. In fact, it’s everywhere with no sign of going out anytime soon. Keeping up with trends is hard enough, but by the end of this you’ll have one less trend to worry about. I’m going to layout a basic look that’s both safe & affordable to help you feel a little better about rocking this look & making it your own.

Camo can honestly go with just about anything. I like to pair mine with neutral colors like black, white, grey & denim. A denim jacket is a great piece to help balance the boldness of almost any printed piece. With a denim jacket & white t-shirt, you’ll get a modern, edgy & classic look.

If you’re not sure about what you should wear, you can’t go wrong with a good pair of camo pants & a solid color t-shirt. If camo pants sound a bit too much for you, try a camo print t-shirt with a denim or leather jacket. The key to anything you wear is, to wear it with confidence & keep it simple.

Be BOLD. Be CONFIDENT. Be YOU.
