Hey everyone! Here I am…releasing a post about summer fashion…mid-way into summer. *nobody’s perfect okay* Meanwhile, I saw Halloween decorations at Michael’s craft store today, which is kind of overwhelming because I haven’t even begun to think about fall yet. But, I say we should live in the moment and enjoy the rest of this blistering summer! *This is me trying to justify the fact that I spent 7 hours creating this post.*
Anyways, after doing some research and inevitable online-shopping, I found a few trends that are super popular for summer 2018! They include: polka dots, florals (still relevant even though spring is over), buttons, tassel earrings, and STRAW [hats & bags].
Let’s break it down.
Polka dots are a timeless and classic pattern and as someone who swoons over classic pieces that never go out of style, I’m so happy that they’re trending! I actually bought the first black midi dress shown below and I love it so much that I’m wearing it to Italy, which is some pretty serious love (more on Italy coming soon)! Not to mention that it’s pretty cool how the size of the polka-dot can completely change the feel of a piece, ya know? Like…the bigger the dot, the bolder the look. Praying that that made sense haha.

I can’t deny that floral is always in style for spring and summer, once again it’s another classic pattern that seemingly never gets old. But, I feel like florals are even MORE prevalent this summer. Maybe I’m imagining things, but whatever this is my blog post so I’m calling the shots LOL. I guess the good thing about buying anything floral is that you can whip it out year after year and it’ll probably still be trendy.

THE BUTTON TREND! I’m obsessed with this one! To me, bold buttons look so chic, yet elegant because they are such a timeless accent to any clothing piece. I definitely recommend investing in a statement button dress this season! I listed a bunch down below that I thought were super cute!
Straw is taking over the world. Not really, but it does make everyone look like they’re living their best life, in a vacation home, on the water, all summer long. I live in Florida, so maybe I’m biased about how many floppy hats and beach bags you actually need in your life–but, I think that these pieces make adorable accessories to any summer outfit! Plus, it’s hard for beach-accessories to “go out of style,” so you’ll probably own them for forever! Well, until they fall apart because…they’re straw LOL. Just being honest.

Let’s talk tassel earrings. As someone who almost exclusively wears the most delicate/dainty jewelry that they can find, I actually have a lot of fun styling tassel earrings. They basically come in every shape/pattern/color ever so it’s literally impossible not to find a pair that will complement your outfit. I think they add a super cute touch to any summer look and they make you feel like you’re stylish and sassy af…don’t know why, but I’m not complaining!
