Off the shoulder tops are all the rage this summer. You can mix them with a skirt or even denim shorts for a unique, fun style. If you are digging this look, off the shoulder dresses are popular also. Pair the off the shoulder top with some sandals and bathing suit and you are beach ready.

Incase you missed it, i rocked this trend on the blog here


Trend #2 – Stripes are in


It’s time to get rid of those plaids and put some more stripes into your wardrobe. Stripes are a great accent to any outfit and, even better, stripes go with just about anything!


Trend #3 – Haute Sweatpants

Sweatpants can still be in your wardrobe, especially if you keep it simple with a monochromatic look.


Trend #4 – Slip Dress w/T-Shirt

Guess what? That dopey slip dress layered over a t-shirt style from the 90’s is back again! This grungy look, done right, can still look cool and chic. Just use a silk slip dress layered over a white or grey tee and add some boots and some cool shades. Who would have thought you could wear layers in the summer?

    Stripes are always in but I believe the off-shoulder trend is all the range now though. I wonder how long it will last. I think bell sleeves and flares are major trends of the moment as well.

    The thing with trends is that they come and go. I did and overdid the off-shoulder like a decade ago (it’s still one of my favorite necklines though). If I had the body for it, I would try the slip dresses.

    I always feel like the off-shoulder top will shift and reveal my boobs. Lol I’m weird like that.
    Those haute sweatpants look so comfy.
