Summer's Hottest Trends Made Easy


Yay to summer for finally getting here! When thinking about this summer’s hottest trends, I love the fact that they are easy to incorporate in anyone’s style. Summer is a time to be laid back, but you can do so with some serious style. I have selected 6 of this summer’s hottest trends to share how you can make them work for you.


A Signature Hat


Besides being a style statement, a signature hat will protect your face from harmful UV rays. Find one that works for you. take an afternoon to go to your local shopping center and try on a few to see which style will work for you.

Ripped Denim

You can not walk into any fashion conscious store and not find ripped denim. I picked a pair of raw denim shorts from Gap because love the worn in, comfortable look. Plus, since they are on sale for $35 my wallet will be happy too.
