Opt for bright colors and cheery prints.
Summer is the perfect time to flaunt your juicy colors and loud prints. Like Sofie, think of a rainbow-colored chevron skirt that will add some playful vibe to your plain white top, or go for a colorful striped dress and dress it up with cute accessories. Since color blocking is a major trend right now, team your brightly-colored pieces to create a cohesive and trendy look, or simply resort to a color blocked dress for an effortlessly chic style.
Embrace ruffles and flares.
Add some flair to your summer looks by incorporating ruffles and flares to your outfit. Like Sofie, you may opt for a printed top teamed with flared jeans which can be perfect for a Casual Friday in the office, or trade it with a tank top for your casual weekend look. If you’re looking for a flirty look, opt for off shoulder dresses and top with ruffled that will keep your street style breezy and chic.
Wear the carefree look with fringes.
If you’re not a fan of bohemian fashion, but wish to add some carefree look to your summer outfits, incorporate fringes to your style. Like Sofie, you may simply top your plain dress with a fringed skirt, or team your fringed dress with a color blocked clutch. To get a mix of feminine and carefree look, simply opt for a ruffled top and a fringed skirt like Sofie did, making her street style unique and fashion-forward.
Resort to breezy fabrics and laser cut ensembles.
Nothing beats the heat than keeping your street-chic outfits breezy and fresh. Like Sofie, you may think of a sheer lace dress that can keep your looks summer-inspired without looking inappropriately sexy. Laser-cut dresses, crochet tops, mesh skirts, and cut-out dresses can be great to keep your summer looks fashionable at the same time functional.
Be creatively sexy on your street looks.
Looking fresh and sexy on your summer looks may be the best thing to go for, but crop tops worn with maxi skirts may sound traditional. Like Sofie, you may creatively unbutton a few holes on your shirt dress, but wear a stylish bralette or bandeau to make your style intentional. If you think your printed blanket scarves are only for the cold season, you’re wrong as Sofie made the stylish piece works in the summer. Like her, you may wear your blanket scarf as a skirt in a wrap style or slit style.
With these fashion inspirations from Sofie, you’ll be sure to get the best street looks this summer. All you need is the creativity and confidence to show off your style on the streets.
