Are you looking to improve your Summer wardrobe? At this point in the Summer you've probably worn your favorite outfits too many times to count, you're running out of ideas, and you have "nothing to wear"! We've all been there... a pile of clothes on the floor, a closet bursting at the seams with outfit options, drawers overflowing with clothes, and STILL feeling like we don't have a single cute item in the mix. I know exactly how to help! I researched the best Summer trends for 2018 and compiled them in one convenient place for you! These tips are coming to you from myself, Kiersten Jones! I am the Fashion Intern at Ampersand and I am currently studying Fashion Merchandising at Kent State University, the top fourth fashion school in the nation, so trust me... I kinda know what I'm talking about!!!
It's ALL in the DETAILS!
Usually, people opt for a patterned top and a neutral colored sweater to layer over it... but who says sweaters have to be boring!? I think everyone is tired of the plain old cardigan sitting at the back of their closet. I changed it up by using a solid, classic scalloped tank under a fun cardigan! There is so much to love about theses pieces, especially when they are together! This baby blue sweater shines a little brighter with its gorgeous white pearls and sweet, studded jewels!
Polka Dots & Stripes & Gingham... oh my!
What's not to love about all of these cute prints and patterns?! This adorable off the shoulder gingham top is a perfect example of the classic fabric with a modern twist. Picking new patterns and prints in bright colors will help change up your wardrobe. Feeling daring? Mix and match different patterns to embrace your wild side! If thats too much, I love a patterned top (like the one on the left) with white skinny jeans!
According to some of my sources, embroidered eyelet is the best of the best! Although it's beautiful in every color I can't help but favor the intricate fabric in white. At Ampersand, we believe that you can white all year round... You can easily transition this piece from Summer to Winter. Whether you pair it with dark denim shorts for Summer or a plaid high-waisted skirt for Winter, you'll never go wrong with this top!
