You may have a penchant for following fashion blogs, or the runway might be the last thing on your mind, but keeping up with the current trends is always lots of fun. Especially when the seasons change, sometimes you want to spruce up your wardrobe with a few fun pieces. We have rounded up some of the best summer trends on today’s blog, and how to wear them without breaking the bank! Let’s get started:
-Wooden and plastic hoop earrings: These are a fun variation on the classic hoop earring, and come in lots of different textures and styles. We like this inexpensive pair, and bonus: they have small hanging attachments so that the hoop doesn’t weigh down your earlobe. And this thick pink plastic pair from Target is under $10, and adds loads of fun to any summer outfit!
-Smocked Tops: The seventies inspired shirts have us loving this trend, and the only thing that could make it better is florals! This pretty, off the shoulder top has everything we love, and it’s under $30. H&M has a pretty, feminine version with a babydoll silhouette and gingham. Try it out with a high waisted pair of shorts or jeans, for a balanced and elegant look, and add some colored sandals for a pop of interest.
-Transparent Bags: Okay, to be completely honest, we aren’t totally on board with this trend, but if you’re an adventurous fashionista, you just might love it. Urban Outfitters has a chic version under $25 that’s big enough for all your beach gear, and more. Load it up and hit the road!
-Tie-bodice tops and dresses: Adorable tops with tie-fronts are having a major moment. Best of all, there are plenty of options: tie front tees that you can layer with a high waist pair of solid shorts, side tie linen tops that pair perfectly with joggers and pretty slide sandals, or a peek-a-boo little dress in classy stripes for date night or brunch with your friends.
-Jewel Tones: Lots of designers who had models walking the runway produced pieces that were filled with crayola-crayon hues! Think bold purple, royal blue, and sunny yellow dresses and pants that will bright up any occasion you want to wear them to. Our favorite piece? This gorgeous, drapey red dress that also has a price point under thirty dollars!
-Checkered Trousers: This is an unconventional item, but one that can easily find it’s way into your wardrobe for work or play! This cute pair of “pixie” pants from Old Navy is under $25. We love it with a chambray top and sweater for a dressy occasion, or with a cool band tee and converse for a nineties-inspired look.
With a small budget, you can add some these items into your warm weather wardrobe, and look trendy and current. Stay tuned to our blog for more fashion tips, and ideas for your senior photography session or creative styled shoot!
