Summer looks may call for a breezy and comfortable outfit, but we may lose some creativity to our looks with each passing day. Mind behind The Little Magpie blog, Amy Spencer is a style blogger from Scotland known for her classy, effortless, and breezy looks that might inspire your summer style. So, keep on reading to scoop some of her tricks and bring some refreshment to your daily looks.
- Add some structure to your minimalist style.
If you have an eye for minimalism, clean lines, streamlined silhouettes, and neutral colors may be characteristics of your wardrobe but you can always make your style modern with sharp structures. Like Amy, you may start by going for an architecturally styled dress, boxy tops, structured trousers, backless dress, or even topping your loose outfit with a structured blazer. If you plan to wear a breezy off-shoulder blouse, pair it with boxy trousers to add some structure to your silhouette. This way, you’ll make your minimalist style more fashion-forward while keeping it summer appropriate.
- Trade your skinny jeans with a pair of culottes or paper-bag waist pants.
Denim jeans and cut-off shorts may be your first options when it comes to weekend dressing, but you can update your style by trading them to a pair of culottes or paper-bag waist pants that looks trendy yet chic. Like Amy, get multiple shades on your trousers that can be versatile to match with your basic tops. White trousers will look elegantly classy with a navy tee while a pair of pink pants will look trendy with a red bandeau top. Earthy tones like camel, rust, red-orange and such look grounded and perfect for summer getaways and picnics.
- Resort to modern yet effortless prints.
Floral prints and Breton stripes may be the most common prints you can see on the streets. To update your style, resort to modern yet effortless prints that can stand from the crowd. Like Amy, you may go for a striped skirt in tri-color that will look perfectly chic with a white top. Or, resort to matching sets with stylish prints that you can mix and match with your other pieces to create a fashion-forward look. This way, you’ll make your summer style unique and original.
- Complete your style with summer accessories.
Straw hats, gladiator sandals, lace-up heels, strappy flats, tote bags, and sunglasses are some of the summer-inspired accessories you can’t forget. Like Amy, go for a pair of sunglasses that will look flattering for your face shape. Angular faces will look more flattering in rounded frames while round face look best in angular frames. Also, think of mercury sunglasses that look enigmatic and statement-making enough that can update your summer outfits instantly.
