Temperatures are soaring here in Milan and summer has most definitely arrived. I love the start of summer because it means holidays and travel are just around the corner and I am getting busy planning our summer trip. But with it also comes the opportunity to inject some life into your wardrobe and add some key pieces to experiment and have fun with.
Here is my lowdown of six on-trend pieces to add to your wardrobe this summer. Mix them in with your existing wardrobe for an easy trend update and use them as the foundation for building a new outfits. It’s up to you! The important thing to remember when styling your summer outfits, make sure you have fun with it!
1 – Off-The-Shoulder Blouses
These babies were also on my Must Have Items for Spring post too and I have included them again because they really are a top player this season! Choose from styles with elegant shoulder-ties to ethnic, embroidered tunic styles and wear them with everything!
2 – Denim Pieces
It might be to hot for jeans but you can still rock this fabric of the season in the form of retro denim dresses, dungarees and statement jackets.
3 – Graphic Sunglasses
This summer is all about eye-wear for getting noticed! Choose from futuristic, plexiglass shades, irregular, graphic shapes or maxi to mini frame sizes!
4 – Straw Hats
Through them on over maxi-dresses while you are going around town or wear with a bikini pool side. Straw Hats are the perfect way to add some chic to your summer looks while protecting your skin from the sun at the same time. My favorites are the ones with tassels and colorful woven straw!
5 – Embellished Tops & Dresses
Embellished tops & dresses are everywhere this season and adding an ethnic flare to our summer wardrobe. With ruffles and flounces in bold, block colors, ethnic printed fabrics, or white embroidered gypsy tops. Dress them up with oversized flares or team with a floaty skirt for beachy vibes.
5 – Tasseled Sandals
Lace up sandals can be seen everywhere this season but take the trend one step further and invest in a pair of lace ups with tassels. They match perfectly to this summers ethnic trend or add a bit of bohemian style to a chic summer look.
6 – Cute Skirts
This Spring it was all about the Suede skirt, but as temperatures begin to soar its time to switch up this heavy fabric for something lighter. Choose from crisp linen skirts, maxi gingham’s or feminine lace styles.
