Summer Events with Style

July just started which means plenty of summer events will be at your door. It’s warm and sunny outside, it’s the perfect weather to wear all your summer clothes. Magazines are full of new trends, but before buying new items, I suggest you to do a big wardrobe cleaning and organization to see what you have and discover old pieces that you had forgotten about. I just did mine and I discovered pieces I didn’t wore that I will incorporate to my looks this summer. With the summer still at its beginning, maybe you’ve gotten a wedding invitation, maybe you’re going to Osheaga or to music festivals, maybe you’re planning a pool party, maybe you’re wondering what to wear to all of those incredible events. Here are some suggestions of outfits according to the event!

1. Attending a wedding.

You’ve sent your answer and your meal choice, but now you need to plan your outfit. A sacred rule is to not wear white, and I totally agree. Leave the bride shine! I would suggest going with a A-line dress (fitted at the top and open (skater skirt) at the bottom) which is cute, romantic and feminine. If you’re more classic, go with light colors, like light pink, green or blue. If you’re more daring, go with royal blue, purple or red. Another great option is to wear a maxi dress. I love the ones that have a slit on the side so it’s easier to walk and you can still show your legs. Add a statement necklace, dangling earrings, bracelets, rings and nice classy heels.

2. Pool party.

Whether you’re planning a pool party or attending one, it’s one of those events that screams SUMMER. Wear your swimsuit (bikini or one-piece) under a light, simple and loose dress that’s easy to remove and put on. Go wild with colors and patterns! If you’re not feeling the dress, wear jeans shorts with a tank top or t-shirt. Bright nail polish on toes and finger nails adds a fun touch also. Don’t forget the sangria and the shades!

3. Girls’ night out.

Hitting the dance floor tonight? Be classy and don’t wear inappropriate clothing. So many people do the error of choosing tight and slutty outfits that don’t flatter their silhouette. I recommend a pencil skirt (a simple black one or one with patterns) and a peplum top (very trendy!) It’s a classic look which is sexy and trendy and it gives a nice figure. I also recommend chic high-waist shorts with a colorful top (royal blue, deep green, orange). Of course, a nice, sexy and simple dress is always a good option for an amazing night! Simple jewelry, lip stick, mascara and.. am I hearing the dance floor call my name?

Spring trends for 2013

It’s freezing cold outside, snow is pouring and you might be getting tired of this winter weather (I know I am), but a few more weeks and spring will start to peak. Shops already have plenty of spring styles in stores, so I suggest we boost our enthusiasm by going shopping for some spring clothing. Why not start to incorporate it with your winter styles? Here are some trends you should definitely try!

1. PEPLUM. Oh yes, this trend will be everywhere this season! Dresses, skirts, tops… It’s absolutely sophisticated.

2. MINI CROSS-BODY BAG. Keys, Id, money, lip gloss and you’re on the go! Light and little, this bag will carry your essentials stylishly. You can go for a chic option or for a more casual one.

3. TWO-TONE PUMPS. Spring is synonym for colorful and vibrant colors. That also applies for shoes! With the major color-blocking trend that’s going on, two-tone pumps are the heels you need.

4. WHITE PANTS. Put a colorful top and you have a fresh and trendy look. Choose a skinny or flare type.

5. RUFFLED CHIFFON DRESS. Delicate, elegant and light, this type of dress is effortlessly chic and versatile.

What are you eager to try this spring?

Hasta pronto!
