Pinks and yellows especially are some bold and bright colors that are in this summer. It’s a great way to make a statement, brightening up anyone's day, literally. These strong colors add a daring and powerful accent to any outfit. 

2. Flower Power

It’s something about flowers that we absolutely love. Not only does it liven up any outfit but it's super chic and could be dressed up or down.   

3. Ruffle some Feathers

There's no such thing as too cozy or too comfy. The ‘just got of bed look’ has officially become the, it thing for the summer. Throw on some pajama inspired attire and strut the streets in style. 

5. Let the Clothes do the Talking

6. The Dismantled Shirt

The discombobulated shirt trend is en route and it works! It’s something edgy about an oddly but perfectly stitched together top like this one. 

7. Pantsuits for the Win

Sleek and stylish pantsuits are the ‘new’ gowns, sort of. After all, they might as well be. A must have staple for this summer’s wardrobe, they are essential to any girls day out.

Whether rounded or squared out, it’s all in the shoulders this season.  With a close attention to detail exaggerated shoulders without a doubt give more edge to any look while still remaining elegant and stylish.
