Welcome to the A Daydream Love “Summer Style Guide for 2018”! I’ve been really eager to get this post up to help inspire your purchases and what to wear this summer season! There are a lot of fun trends that I’m excited to talk about. Below you will find top summer trends and shoppable links to get your summer wardrobe ready!
Summer Style Guide
Hair Accessories: Two trends that are coming back in style this summer season are scrunchies and head wraps/headbands. They are a stylish way to keep the hair out of your way while enjoying the warmer weather. They are also a better alternative and safer on the hair than the smaller ponytail holders. I recommend getting some playful prints and colors to amp up your look for summer-don’t be afraid to have fun and play with them!
Easy Breezy Dresses: In the summer we often try to get away with wearing as little layering as possible. I always find that an easy breezy summer dress is a great way to stay cool in the warmer months. I love dresses that range from maxi, midi, and mini in a variety of prints. A dress can offer versatility and effortless style-pair them with heels or sandals to match any occasion.
Smock Tops: Currently trending for the summer are smock tops. They make a statement, and have a feminine vibe. I find them to be very playful and can pair perfectly with denim, shorts, and skirts! What’s not to love about an elastic detail?
Mini Skirts: Mini skirts are obviously not a new trend, but this summer we are recycling some fun favorites like denim mini’s. I also love to have a good white mini in my summer wardrobe as well. Shorter hemlines are what I reach for in the midst of the summer heat. Bearing a little leg is quite the change from those winter months of wearing jeans and sweatpants, so don’t be afraid to step into them gradually. To convince you, I have found them to be versatile and a closet staple for the warmer months. Opt for a denim mini for more styling options, or go for a playful print and make a statement.
Shorts: While it’s always great to have denim shorts in a variety of styles and colors for the summer, the trend to try this 2018 season is paper bag shorts. The bagginess of the style make them both comfortable and flattering. When it comes to styling, it’s really not that hard. Crop tops work perfectly with the high waisted style, simple tees and tanks work well tucked in showing off that cinched in waistline that the shorts give.
Bags: A couple of bags I’m excited to try this summer are transparent bags, and net bags. Straw bags aren’t backing down, so if you aren’t ready to jump into the net and transparent bag trend, I would start with a fun straw bag. All of these bag styles offer versatility, which is what I like when it comes to a bag, plus there are a lot of affordable options!
