1.   Culottes

The knee-length or cropped pant more popularly known as gaucho and palazzo pants; but, not like the ones you remember from 2004. In 2016, the Culotte has way more style and can take you from coffee to cocktails.  You may have dismissed this trend because you don’t think it will look right on you, but we are here to show you some ways to style them. Knot a tank or tee and add a pair of booties or sandals and you're good to go.

2.  Off the shoulder

Off the shoulder tops and dresses are feminine and flirty and can be worn dressy or casual.   Every store and e-tailor has them in stock from sexy summer solids to bold prints.  Check out our favorites below.

3.  The flared sleeve

The flared sleeve is fun, dramatic and who doesn’t love making a statement with your style? Designers are playing with length, texture, layers and belled silhouettes to make sleeves a summer staple. 

 

 

4.  Jumpsuits

Rompers and jumpsuits are everywhere.  They are the new dress, the new tailored suit, the new ‘one-piece’.  Wear these with gladiator sandles, your new favorite birks, a pair of booties or a chunky heel for a night out. The best is when you find a jumpsuit that incorporates all the above trends!

5.  The perfect cover up

A girl can never have too many coverups!  Wear out, wear to the beach, wear around the pool, this staple piece is perfect to layer with almost anything.  Amuse Society has become one of our favorite go-to brands that we shop for a great cover up.   Their versatile styles are, well, in their words, “Beach Vida Bling” worthy.
