Summer is the perfect time to look breezy and chic as the temperature begins to rise. Mind behind the With Love from Kat blog, Kat Tanita is a New York-based style blogger known for her breezy and chic style perfect this summer season. Since she has worked with brands such as Burberry and has been featured in numerous publications including Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and Marie Claire, let’s scoop some styling tricks from her to get a breezy chic style this summer.
Dress up your summer whites with chic accessories.
When the temperatures begin to rise, it’s time to let go of your winter colors and resort to lighter shades and summer whites. As black and darker shades absorb light and heat, white reflects them completely making you feel cool and breezy under the sun. If you find white outfits are quite dull and boring, simply dress them up with summer accessories to bring some breezy vibe to your looks. Like Kat, think of a woven rattan bag, straw hat, chic sunglasses, strappy sandals, or even a lightweight scarf that will give you that stylish look yet season-appropriate.
Get a breezy yet glamorous look perfect for garden parties this summer.
Heading to a summer party? Forget those form-fitting and body-tight silhouettes as it’s time to embrace flowy, billowy, and free-flowing pieces. Like Kat, think of a flowy red dress that will make those eyes turn at you. Or look breezy chic with a lightweight cut-out dress that will make black shade appropriate for the summer. Going for shorter hemlines and lower necklines will also make your garden party outfits a bit sexy at the same time summer-inspired.
Make your casual street style a bit dressy and chic.
If you always resort to a pair of denim jeans or shorts when it comes to your casual street style, it’s time to make some twists. You’ll look more summer-inspired and chic with breezy maxi dresses, flowy skirts, and palazzo pants so think of having them in your closet. If you’re a fan of denim, resort to a chambray shirtdress instead of a denim-on-denim outfit. If you’re a tee-and-jeans type of girl, go for a lighter shade on your jeans, perhaps white or gray, that will work well with a matching tank top and a printed kimono, making your casual chic style breezy and chic.
Incorporate summer-inspired prints to your outfits.
Summer is all about juicy colors and creative prints, so think of wearing them to your street looks. Breton stripes, tribal patterns, Ikat prints, retro floral prints and such evoke the summer vibe to your looks. Like Kat, go for a striped shirtdress that will look effortlessly cool with a denim jacket tied on your waist and a pair of espadrilles. Or, opt for a pair of striped sailor shorts that will go perfectly with your summer tops. By taking these tips into your street looks, you’ll be able to create outfits that look breezy and chic like Kat always does.
