Trend Alert: A Few More Summer Must-Haves

Hi Royal Dynamite Fam! We officially entered summertime this past Saturday and with each season there’s always fashion trends that stand out more than others. I have already talked about the major trends to look out for in the 2014 spring and summer seasons in a blog post a few months back, but here are a few more staples to add to that list for your perfect summer wardrobe.

1.  Denim Overall/Jumpsuits

The trend was first made for farmers and mechanics has made a comeback as a versatile and chic fashion option. You can dress your jumpsuit up by pairing it with pumps or wear it casually with flats or sneakers.

2.  Birkenstocks

Remember Birkenstock Sandals? Well, they are back and it seems like they’re here to stay. Although I have never been a big fan of these shoes, they are starting to grow on me! The Birkenstock brand is quite expensive, but more stores are starting to sell a style very similar to the popular sandal. You can find a big variety of the shoes at stores such as Payless, Walmart, and others.

 3.  Sheer Clothing

This is obviously not a trend for everyone, but if you choose to rock it, here are a few tips to help you do so somewhat effortlessly:

  • Wear the proper undergarments. This means making sure that your bra and panties match, don’t have any holes, or look worn out.

  • Opt for dark colors because darker colored sheers as well as darker colored undergarments tend to look better.

  • Try to wear pieces that are loose and flowy.

  • Most important of all to me is be CONFIDENT! Your undergarments are showing so people are bound to stare. Make sure you own your look!

 4.  Gladiator Sandals

Another hot shoe trend of the season are gladiator sandals. They come in different lengths and heel heights, but the only thing to remember while rocking these this summer is to beware of tan lines!

5.  Brightly Colored Pant Suit

One thing that has been trending amongst celebrities is the brightly colored suit. Not just any brightly colored suit, but a very well tailored one. It must look like it was made just for you! The best part about this outfit is that you can easily transition the suit from work to a night outing.

 6.  Floral headband

The floral headband is such a fun accessory to add to your style, especially during the music festival season. One of the best things about this trend is that you can create your own in just a few minutes!

Well, that is all I have for you today. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you all have a great rest of the week! Also, make sure you check out my blog here.
