Our Five Favorite Looks For Summer

5 Jul

Summertime….and the living is easy!!!! Ahh yes! Who doesn’t love the Summer? As a self-named fashionista, it’s one of my favorite seasons; the other being Autumn of course. So I thought I would share my five favorite looks of the summer. Do you agree? Which ones did I miss? Let’s go!

1.) Bright Blazers

Zara.com Jersey Blazer $79

A bright, bold Blazer is a great way to add a pop of class and color to any outfit. Don’t be afraid to color-block by mixing & matching bright hues. Pair this jacket with a different bold color of shorts, leggings, jeans, or even a pencil skirt. These are perfect to grab for a late night walk on the beach or an evening stroll downtown. Get them in every color, material, and even prints…trust me they will come in handy!

 2.) All White

Asos.com All White Dress $69

Summer cannot officially be over until  you attend an All-White Party somewhere. Whether it’s at a club, a private party, or on a yacht, you have to bust out this angelic look at least once. There are so many ways to rock the all-white look: crop pants & a basic tee, white jeans & a strapless top, or a sexy dress with an embellished top like the one pictured. Have fun with it and wear it as much as you can before the season is over!

3.) Maxi Dresses

Forever21.com Maxi Dress $24

This is probably my FAVORITE look of the summer to be honest. I am a sucker for a darling Maxi Dress and some cute  flat sandals. It is the absolute most comfortable and cool way to enjoy a hot summer day. You cannot go wrong with a maxi dress. Invest in a variety: halter, strapless, tank, etc. This look can take you to the beach, to a picnic, out for drinks with the girls, or casual dinner with your significant other.

4.) Jumpers/Rompers

CharlotteRusse.com Jumper $26

This is another adorable look that is perfect for the Summertime. I love the versatility of jumpers and rompers. You can easily dress them down or up. For a more casual look, you can wear a cute flat sandal and simple jewelry. If you want to transition this look for night activities, all you need is a great wedge sandal and some chunky jewelry. Now, I will warn you…us big hipped sisters have to be careful because this look can be tricky. It can easily go from classy to trashy (especially the rompers). Make sure you get the right material and fit that compliments your shape.

5.) Sandals

Gojane.com Colorblock Sandals $52

Last but certainly not least, my final favorite look of the Summer is SANDALS!!!! Of course, right? Ladies can’t wait to show off their freshly pedicured toes and hawt pair of sandals. Now of course I say the higher the better but work it at whatever height is comfortable for you.

Yup, it’s Ginger Spice, Baby Spice, Sporty Spice, Scary Spice and of course Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham!

The Pop Girls Group, “The Spice Girls” from the 90’s is making a comeback! This Fall, the new Musical “Viva Forever” will begin playing at the Piccadilly Theatre in London. All of the music will be based on their songs from back in the day! Especially their smash hit “WannaBe”. (That song had all the girls feeling powerful!)

These ladies look quite stylish, I would say! Their style has definitely made a complete transformation since their Spice Girl days! Classy, upscale, all grown up is what some might describe it. Many would remember the bold, eccentric costumes they used to rock. Today they represent nothing but elegance, which looks marvelous on them!

Although they won’t be featured in the Musical, this definitely gives them exposure and puts them back in the Lime Life. You can only begin to imagine where this will take them, especially following the footsteps of their fellow band member, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.

Let’s sit back, relax and see where they’re headed!

 

And the biggest transformation goes too……..

When is enough, enough? How do you personally feel about it?

Check out the sketch of Madonna’s new costume, designed by the extraordinary Jean Paul Gaultier!!? Gaultier had several elements in mind as they brainstormed ideas for this iconic costume.

The final design consists of both masculine …and feminine details which makes this cage-like design so unique! The mixture of Metallic and Patent Leathers gives the design a 3D affect which takes this corset to another level!

Gaultier designed this for Madonna’s ninth world tour! How amazing is that!?
