Amongst florals & see-through skirts/maxis (I mean, let’s be honest here…I never saw so many nice butts through mesh skirts than I did at Coachella this year) there are a few other trends that have been popping up. & what do you know, all 3 of them happen to be in this outfit!
This River Island top specifically. I just had so much fun styling this outfit. River Island has such unique pieces, you are bound to have some fun and become confident to push outside your comfort zone while shopping there. The best way to start is find a piece that you absolutely love, that first got your attention when you walked in the store (or when you were browsing online), but a second later you are having doubts about how you will wear it. Well, hate to be this obvious, but just GET IT! I’ll help you figure out the rest. & I promise you, you will wear it.
Whenever you are feeling this way, to start off – always go simple with the rest of the outfit. Dip your toes in. For example, I kinda felt like Barbie in this…especially because this top has a matching knit bottom which is SO cute, but if I am being real – it was a little too tiny for my hips + booty. I highly recommend it, just go a couple sizes up – it would be absolutely perfect to rock at the beach or pool this summer. Because I was just walking around a park in Jersey City, I felt like toning it down a touch. So, I paired the bright & bold top with River Island denim, white sneaks and a retro pair of sunnies to pull the look together.
Alas, 3 summer trends. I rounded them all up below!
- Hot Brights – think like fire-y reds, deep orange, & yellow.
2. Bold Stripes – so many stripes in so many different colors, all on one piece of clothing & it is amazing.
3. 80s – aka ruffles everything, acid wash and retro band tees.
