Summer Style Guide 2018

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!



8 Trends To Try This Summer

There are so many fabulous trends to try this summer and I wanted to share a couple of my favorites with you!

1.Gingham- always a classic for summer


2. Basket Bags-you have seen every size, shape and style of this bag-so versatile and summer perfection! 


3. Espadrilles- another classic for summer. A shoe that can be both veritable and comfortable! 


4. Wide Brim Hats-Currently wearing a straw hat like every other day, and I’m really loving the wide brimmed style. 


5. Statement Earrings-Currently a trend I’m getting more into. I’ve been loving adding a bold earring to even a simple outfit!


6. Straight Neck- a 90’s style comeback that I’m seeing everywhere right now, especially in the form of a mini dress! 


7. The color yellow-a color that is just bursting this summer. It’s so fun, and looks perfect in a hot summer day!


8. One Piece Swim-All I’m wearing right now are one piece styled swimsuits. It’s funny because this style covers more, but I feel more confident and there are some beautiful patterns and styles out!


Sandals For Summer-Under $100


It’s time to pull out those sandals for the warmer months! My feet are so happy that there are so many adorable sandals out, and for a steal of a price! Trending styles at the moment are slides, espadrille and tie-ups. I’ve rounded up as many sandals as I could find for under $100! I even split the category into two:

UNDER $100 Sandals

UNDER $50 Sandals



I love that gingham is trending this season! I have always loved this print! It reminds me of a picnic in the park! However, that’s not what I was doing when I wore this shirt recently! I decided to pair my gingham top with flared jeans for a 70’s vibe! I love these jeans! You may remember them from here! This weekend I celebrated a family friends birthday and this outfit was perfect! Not to dressy & not to laid  back! I have had this shirt for a couple years now and I just can’t pull myself to let go! I just adore it! It’s loose fitting, light and perfect for warmer weather!

White On White


This season is completely filled with the color white and it is “white hot”. White is so fresh and lightens up the mood for the spring/summer season. I have dabbled in the white on white look before but now I  have taken a fashion step forward with my white on white look. This season is screaming “white jeans”. Lighten up your wardrobe! Wedges added the perfect touch. I was feeling the spring season from my hair down to my feet. Adding in touches of the boho vibe with my big bangle and midi rings. I had fun adding in pops of color in various places like my earrings, lips and bangle! This was such a fun outfit to wear on a Saturday for my meetings and then to dinner with friends!
