Style hacks to refresh your summer wardrobe
August 20, 2017, 12:58 pm

We are in the heat of summer, and it’s far from over. Seeing as to how you have still got at least a month’s worth of humidity to endure, some serious outfit magic will be in order. But what’s a fashion girl to do when she’s nearly exhausted her capsule wardrobe of vintage Levi’s, carefree camis, and designer pool slides? Here are some style hacks to breathe new life into your midsummer wardrobe.

Colorful sunglasses: When it comes to accessories, you won’t want to be armed without a pair of standout shades. Wear subtle cat-eye sunglasses that feel fresh and modern or a sharp angled pair for a more dramatic look. Meanwhile, bright acetate frames feel retro and modern at the same time.

Go for head-to-toe yellow: Sunshine yellow has been positioned as one of the must-wear hues of the season, and now we can see why. Start small with citrusy yellow lemon drop earrings or go all in with a canary yellow co-ordinate or a mellow yellow-hued maxi that radiates good vibes.

Sneaks paired with a dress give a sporty girl vibe: The number one outfit trend for summer is athluxury. One good idea is to pair classic trainers with an ultra-femme empire-waist dress. Alternatively, trainers can look so chic with a shift dress. Try rocking your favorite frilly dress with neon sneakers to make the look all the more practical. But, for a longer hemline, go for high shoes — the play on proportions will set your look apart.

Style a cute summer top with dainty necklaces:  You know all those halters and shirts you have been wearing on repeat with your go-to denim cutoffs? It is about time they received an update. Toss on a slew of dainty layered necklaces, and voila, suddenly they are new again.

A snap-worthy gingham top isn’t up for debate:  There are few prints that are more of a summer classic than gingham. You can never ever get it wrong when it comes to style. Inject a fresh edge to gingham by donning clashing colours or layer your gingham with lace and other trends for contemporary appeal.

All white: Summer is the time to reach for your dainty little white dresses, billowy white blouses, and crisp white jeans. Don’t hang up your tennis shoes just yet — get on Serena Williams’ level with a pleated tennis dress, white mod sunglasses, and athletic trainers.

Team a bodysuit with a skirt: When a classy-yet-cool aesthetic is what you are after, look no further than a twirl-worthy skirt. Team it up with an elegant bodysuit and you have a foolproof recipe for elegant dressing.

Channel your inner salsa dancer with a red dress:  Take your ensemble to the max with a flowy little red dress (LRD) that will hold you down for a party or an evening affair.  Red is the original power color, and wearing it is a sign of confidence. When it comes to the LRD, accessorizing with black will always be a no-brainer. Throw a blazer over a fiery-red number for a chic twist, or top it off with a cropped jacket and add statement jewelry for extra after-dark drama.
