Beyond Shorts and T-Shirts: Classy and Cool Summer Styles

summerstyles

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been waiting all year to spend my summer rotating between lazing at the pool and working out in the sunshine.  Unfortunately,  that to-die-for schedule of activities also means a (pretty boring) rotation of the same bikini and the same pair of Nike running shorts.  Not to worry, though; there are tons of summer looks that are just as easy to throw on as shorts and t-shirt (promise!), and you won’t have to sacrifice your sorority girl style while you’re at it.

The Summer Sundress

The Palms Dress, Pearl Southern Couture

Sweetheart Knit Dress, Forever21.com

Grab a colorful dress in a soft cotton and you’ll be comfortable and cool doing anything from running errands to walking on the beach.  You can dress it up with jewelry for a nice night out or just as easily throw it on over a bikini.  Prints and coral are both hot this season, so grab a dress in one of these hues and be set for the whole day. Plus, isn’t throwing on a dress easier than picking out a matching shorts and top outfit anyway?

The Crop Top

 

 

Feeling a little adventurous this summer?  Try a printed crop top with shorts or a bikini at the beach.  After all, the 80’s are back in full force this season…why miss out on the fun?

One Word: Accessorize

One of the best things you can do to spice up your summer wardrobe is to add new accessories to pieces you already own.  The right scarf, hat or necklace can make even your “same old, same old” ensemble feel new again.

Happy shopping!
