Style File: Summer Must Haves
With summer quickly approaching (again!), it’s come time to spruce up that fabulous wardrobe of yours with some must-haves for the season.
There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about this one. Denim shorts are summer necessity. Pair them with a silk blouse and wedges to go out with the girls or a simple tee and gladiators for a fresh day time look. While vintage Levi’s are showing back up on the radar, you’ll want to choose a pair that can be paired with anything in your wardrobe. A low on the hip, loose in the thigh, cuff-able pair such as J Brand or Joes is key. One of America’s biggest sweethearts, Ashley Tisdale, just can’t leave home without her J Brand Malco Shorts she shops in them, wears them to High School Musical rehearsal and even wears them to the beach! The Malco short can be seen in the closets of Sienna Miller, Mischa Barton, Lauren Conrad and other fashion forward starlets of Hollywood.
For the third summer season in a row, rompers are in full swing. These fun and flirty numbers are the cutest way to stay cool when its 100+ degrees outside. If you’re a first time romper wearer, a simple black silk is the route to take. If you’re feeling brave, venture into different colors, patterns and lengths. But remember, there is such a thing as too many ruffles! Hot mama and fashion designer Nicole Richie was seen in a black button down romper like the Twelfth St Cynthia Vincent Black Romper. Nicole isn’t the only celeb that lives in these during the summer months, check with Kim Kardashian and Ashley Olsen for romper-wearing tips.
Remember Blossom? Remember the early 90′s? Get your inspiration from your favorite grunge girl when wearing a floral print dress. In this case, the shorter the better. You don’t want to look like you’re wearing a pillowcase or your moms nightgown. Boots tend to be frowned upon in the summer, but lace-up ankle boots or the Joie New Orleans Boot can be worn with this trend year round. Rihanna is not only a leading lady in the music industry, but is becoming a fearless fashion icon on and off the stage. She’s been spotted on more than one occasion out and about rocking a floral print dress like the Myne Naomi Dress. Rihanna’s good friend Katy Perry is a big fan of floral dresses, but what’s Katy’s favorite line? Sretsis!
