Must have Trends for Summer

With glimpses of summer on the horizon and vaccines slowly but surely being administered, the hopes and thoughts of a life that we have longed for is in sight! With that being said, what exactly does that mean for the future of fashion? What does that mean for your online shopping cart and your actual closet? I am here to show you some of my favorite must have items for this summer! These pieces will make you feel fresh, new and revived! We have to embrace our new reality, look toward the future and continue to make it fashion.

Very few of us are dressing up anymore, the idea of a cocktail party or black tie event is so 2019! It’s time to DAZZLE IN THE DAYLIGHT! What does that mean? Most of what we do nowadays is outdoors; gone are the days of dancing until dawn. The days are now all about bike riding, outdoor dining, outdoor coffee dates and daily strolls. Since this is, in fact, our new reality, we should start dressing for it! Instead of buying that knockout dress you would have purchased for a major event, opt for a few beautiful, cheerful summer dresses that can be your go-to summer staples. I say go for that new pair of high quality yoga pants that you know you’re going to end up wearing at least twice a week, trade in those stilettos for a versatile slide that you can wear to dinner or your next coffee run. It’s time to accept the present and be in the here and now. I am not asking you to toss those beloved sweatpants away…I am just suggesting it’s time for all of us to step up our fashion game. Let’s remaster our wardrobe and start dressing for a bright, bold and happy summer!
