How To Wear Summer Trends For Beginners

How to Wear Summer Details

Pair Stripes With A Solid Color

It’s ok to be a beginner. You have to start somewhere! If you’re used to pairing your stripes with jeans or shorts, take a slight step outside of your comfort zone and try wearing this classic pattern with a skirt & ankle booties.

Stylist Tip: Juxtapose classic stripes with a ‘70s inspired button-front skirt.

Add a touch of embroidery

Baby steps! If you’re looking to boost pattern levels without going the whole nine yards, try adding a subtle touch of embroidery (like subtle dots on your tee) to a classic summer outfit: shorts and sandals.

Stylist Tip: Keep your palette neutral so the embroidery takes center stage.

Challenge yourself with colors and stripes

We know you’re up for the challenge! Try pairing a bright statement color (like these fire engine red slip-on mules) with a soft pattern (like a pinstripe tunic) for a look that’s bold but not over the top.

Stylist Tip: If you’re looking to wear more than one ‘big piece’ try wearing them with a classic staple, like your favorite pair of skinny jeans.

More Embroidery, Please

Alright, let’s take this to another level. Go from casual to way cool with an on-trend embroidery cargo jacket. Any flora or fauna embroidery will add a flirty and femme vibe. Try pairing it with your favorite sneakers and boyfriend jeans.

Stylist Tip: Try turning up the sleeves of your cargo over a long sleeve tee to create a layering effect. Get ready for extra brownie points for wearing details.

You’re ready to go from the office to happy hour in no time.
