2k19 Fashion Inspiration: Summer Edition

The school year is coming to an end, and the weather is becoming warmer than ever. It's time to toss all of those knitted sweaters and fur boots to the back of your closet and make room for a new seasonal wardrobe. It's time for colors, sunglasses, flowy dresses, and lets not forget the sun hats! You don't have to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars to dress right for the upcoming summer. From the simplest of accessories to a cute pair of sandals, you can slay and look bomb for the summer season.

A popular trend that has been worn by many people are wide leg trousers. Theses pants are super comfy and can be paired with a spaghetti strap top, a watch, and sandals. If you want to get dressy, you wear a white button-up (tucked in), a few bracelets, a mid-length necklace, and white loafers.

Maxi dresses are also high in fashion. This type of dress is floor length and can be paired with gladiator sandals and a long feather necklace. Another suggestion would be to add a small handbag and maybe a curly hairstyle to make it pop!

Rompers are considered to be divisive by many within the fashion community due to the subject of body shape nowadays. However, anyone can rock this apparel with their own creativity no matter how you look. There are two types of rompers: wide leg and short rompers. When it comes to wide leg rompers, it's best to pair them with a frilled messenger bag and some causal stiletto heels. Or if you're not into heels, throw on a cute pair of ankle sandals. Short rompers are best paired with gladiator sandals, a handbag, and maybe a few bracelets.

Jewelry can make any outfit bomb when it comes to fashion. A popular idea within the female community is earrings. This can vary from a small pearl earring to large, bamboo hoop earrings. For the males, two popular ideas are watches and chain necklaces. These ideas mainly focus on having "swag" or keeping up with the style in this generation.

For my males who like to stay fresh for the season, a suggestion would be a pair of white ripped jeans, a name brand shirt or your favorite sports team jersey, and a pair of Jordan's, Vans, or Nikes. If this suggestion isn't your cup of tea, I would suggest a pair of knee-length shorts or blue jeans, a white tee, and a pair of Nikes, Converses, Vans, or Sperry's.

Everyone can have their own creativity when it comes to fashion. What will you be wearing this summer?
