Rompers Are Hot

Sure, horizontal stripes are tough to wear [3], but when worn right, a pattern or stripe is always in style. For Summer, think about sheer striped shirts or a patterned romper [4].

Accessorize!

The right accessories transform any outfit, so layer them on! And the perfect sun hat finishes any outfit. From glittering bling to stacked bracelets [5], the more the better.

Stay Classy

Keep it chic and make sure your short shorts are the right length, opting for a two- to four-inch inseam. Pairing your cutoffs with a more conservative top keeps the look pulled together while being effortlessly cute.

Show Some Toe Cleavage

Want instantly long and sexy Summer legs? Reach for your heels that have a low-cut vamp — yes, we're referring to shoes that show a bit of toe cleavage. They elongate and slenderize your legs no matter what you're wearing.

Get Curvy

Cinch your waist with an accent of color or a cute little belt that defines your natural waistline. Along with adding an extra pop of color or bling to your outfit, it's a great way to show off your figure this Summer.

High Waists Are In!

Don't give high-waisted bottoms a bad rap — they are actually trending this Summer! The best bet? A high-rise skinny jean or full skirt paired with your favorite crop top.

Black Is Back

Black is back, but too much can turn into darkness overload that doesn't scream Summer. We love the look of this fitted black skirt with a top that shows just a peek of skin. Top with your favorite black leather biker jacket, and you're so chic.

Colorbocking

Colorblocking is so in, and pairings draw attention from areas you don't want eyes to travel to, such as your waist or thighs. It's also a fun trend for Summer, mixing and matching fresh pastel colors.

Fit Right In

Everything about this outfit is tailored, creating a silhouette that's so effortless. If you really want to edit your wardrobe for Summer, take the time to get rid of any staples that just don't fit. Keep blazers with seams that sit perfectly on your shoulders and shirts that don't gap when tucked in.
