I am so glad to have Megan Abigail Chandler, the blogger behind bellissimo guest blogging for me today while I am on vacation. Enjoy her summer loves below and make sure to venture over to her amazing blog!
The summertime boasts a very unique style. Because of the overwhelming heat, the days are slower and fabrics are lighter, so we have to rely on certain tricks to styling to make sure you look cool when it’s so damn hot.
First, leopard prints are phenomenal when paired with bright pops of color. Hot pink pants, a leopard belt and a great tank … well throw that on and a night out with the girls just turned into a fashion show. Slip on those Steve Madden Leopard slippers with a black mini and an awesome cobalt blue swingy top and you’ll knock him dead on date night. That is one accessory that can cross the seasons and look insanely hot on you when it is too hot outside.
And in that same breath pops of color are good tools on which to rely. Whether it be a great color on your nails or a fantastic piece of jewelry (that Kenneth Jay Lane number is a killer) or a lightweight scarf when you step into heavily air-conditioned movie theaters or restaurants, pops of color are fantastic styling tools when paired with your one and only LBD.
Light colors are a must. Nude is my pick, though I think white is fantastic too, but to spice it up and pronounce you more of a grownup, nude is the way to go (and its great for showing off a good tan).
Finally, scrounging up fantastic home finds is another daytime activity alternative to roasting in the sun. Isn’t that Anthropologie bed nuts?
Happy summer time, folks. Knock ‘em out with killer style.
