It's summertime and the living is easy!  I love the relaxed, comfortable vibe of cool summer outfits and wanted to put together 5 easy styling tips for looking chic and casual for all the warm, sunny days ahead!

 

Tip #1. Turn up the brights! 

When it comes to summer time fashions, brights dominate!  Add a pop of color like turquoise, fuschia, coral or daffodil to liven up your wardrobe and your sun kissed complexion.  Add beachy waves to your hair, a pair of sunglasses and you're ready for fun in the sun!

Tip #2. Long over lean.

My favorite summer time "uniform" is a long tunic or flowy top over skinny jeans or leggings - This outfit works for many occasions and It's one of the easiest ways to look instantly slimmer!  Keep your make up natural -  just add a little mascara/eye shadow, brow pencil, blush, lip gloss (and don't forget teeth whitener) for a fresh, summer face!

Tip #3. Roll with it!

We all love a sporty, laid back look for summer and jeans are an absolute must (you can never have too many pairs)!  I love the feminine "tom boy" style of a rolled cuff for a casual, ankle grazing look for showing off a pair of cute sandals and colorful pedicure!

Tip #4. Bling it on

When it comes to summer sparkle, think easy layers, icy stones and shiny metallics.  A cool boho ring and a pile of Herkimer "Diamonds" will finish off every summer outfit.

Tip #5. White haute details.

There's no simpler way to look calm, cool and collected in the sweltering heat than by wearing white - nothing looks more right this season!  A floppy hat, great bag and sandals are all you'll need to finish off your easy summer style!
