Summer is almost officially here (June 21st) and as amazing as it is, it can be difficult to dress stylish in the summer when you need to wear minimal clothing. In the colder months, (not like it’s ever cold in LA… lol) you can play with layering, boots, stockings and all of those fun elements of style. Layering is not the way to go when it’s crazy hot outside. Summer style is a whole other game!
Chose Clothing with Fun Design Elements
In the “winter” you can wear basic pieces and layer them with other simple pieces to make a look, but in the summer, the trick to being stylish is different. Pulling off a great look requires buying clothing that have a unique design on its own since chances are it will be way too hot to layer. The obvious go-to in the Summer months are tank tops, shorts, and above all dresses- the problem with that is they’re usually basic and plain. This makes it hard to incorporate an interesting look.
After some shopping around, I found some of the best “not your typical” Summer dresses to add excitement to your wardrobe! Funky patterns are an easy design element to looking stylish. The cut outs in the fabric is another major eye catcher we all love in these looks.
Wear Simple Accessories
Another great trick to adding style is with simple accessories that are lightweight and beneficial waking around in the sun. That means a hat and sunglasses of course. Dainty jewelry is a great addition to a summer look. This necklace resembles sea glass and adds elegance to a summer dress.
One of my favorite accessories is a great scarf. Yes a scarf, even in the summer. Scarves are multi-purpose incredible style tools. You can wrap it around your neck, your bag, your waist, around your wrist.. the list could go on. If you want one accessory that is versatile, I’d look into the silk scarf above 🙂
With the look I’m wearing, the simple tank top is turned stylish with the lace up sides. I paired it with classic dangling pearl earrings as my primary accessory. I think the high neck looks great on it’s own so I left a necklace out of this one and tied my hair back to keep the simplicity.

We might not be able to layer much, but we can add details in other ways.
Rock Some Summer Wedges
Shoes can make or break your summer look! No need to throw on your old flip flops with that rockin new dress, invest in some sexy wedges and elevate your look.
These wedges are comfortable, lightweight and freaking adorable- not to mention all very well priced. I promise it will be worth the investment in the long run if you want to transform your summer wardrobe.
