The problem is, you haven’t any idea where to start!
On the one hand, you want to showcase your distinct personal style through your outfits. But on the other, you are just having some trouble brainstorming ways to do it.
Not to worry! To assist you with this personal style evolution, here are five trendy ideas for updating your summer style this year.
1. Embrace denim-on-denim
A classic combination for various demographics throughout society, denim-on-denim is a style that can be intimidating to attempt, but that reaps the rewards when executed correctly. After all, if it is good enough for Kim Kardashian and Gigi Hadid — so you may want to try it yourself!
A foolproof way to make this style work for you is to pair black or white jeans with a blue denim top, but this summer, push your boundaries and wear a full monochrome white denim outfit. Keep the accessories colorful, and you will be ready for long summer evenings.
2. Invest in a high-quality colored knit and well-fitting high-waisted jeans
In your wardrobe, various pieces are well worth investing a little bit more money in for the cut, the fabric, and the amount of wear you can get out of them.
A high-quality colored knit will become a staple in your wardrobe. You can wear it during the day and in the evening, and the luxurious material will have everyone asking where you purchased it from.
The same is true with denim. Having a pair in your arsenal that you know flatters your body and makes you feel like a goddess will be a life-saver for days when you want to throw something on and go.
Pair this combination of a high-quality colored knit and well-fitting high-waisted jeans with a pair of ankle booties or mid-heel vintage-inspired pumps.
3. Push your limits with a tribal print jumpsuit
Jumpsuits are a favorite style, year-round. But, especially in the summer, they are a trendy alternative to dresses. This summer, browse the offerings of a tribal streetwear brand and find a jumpsuit in a breathable fabric that will work for you from day to night.
Purchasing a tribal print jumpsuit means that you have an entire outfit in one, as the lively patterns, textures, and colors can (and should) be the focus. Keep your accessories and makeup to a minimum for a look that has personality but remains chic.
4. Wear a summer dress with white sneakers
You can never go wrong with a well-fitting summer dress. But, it doesn’t always feel like the most practical option; after all, you want to be able to move around and go about your day seamlessly, without your clothing getting in the way.
The good news is that you don’t have to wear high-heels or uncomfortable sandals with these styles of dresses. In fact, as these short dresses transcend style genres, you have the option of transforming them into a look that pays homage to grunge, boho-chic, or feminine vibes.
For the ultimate cool girl vibe, throw on your favorite white sneakers. You will look calm, cool, and collected, as though you just hopped off a flight…
Where to find more inspiration
That being said, personal style is supposed to be just that — personal. You should always dress in outfits that work for you, keeping in mind the occasion, your body shape, and the message you want to send.
While you constantly keep filling your thoughts with inspiration from magazines and the internet, and through embracing other art forms, finding your personal style means staying true to yourself.
