Dressing for the summer weather can sometimes feel limiting. It’s hot and the last thing you want to add is extra heat. In the fall and winter it’s so easy to add tons of interest to any outfit with layers, scarves, or a cute jacket but in the summer what’s a girl to do? That’s why this month’s Style Your Budget is dedicated to the small details that pack a big punch. It’s in these small details that we’re able to add interest without adding heat. After all, staying cool is essential in the summer but you don’t have to sacrifice style.
For this SYB look, I started off with one of my favorite summer staples, jean shorts. They are versatile, come in a variety of styles and lengths plus there’s the option to sub in a denim skirt or if it’s not completely hot where you are, jean crops. Next, I’m still styling a solid top, but this time I’m opting for something with a little more detail. Perhaps one with a few ruffles, embroidery details, or maybe a scalloped hem. There are so many fun top options out there you’re sure to find one with details you like. Finally, I’m going to finish it off with one of the summer trends I’ve been seeing everywhere, woven/quilted sandals. The details may be small but they make a big statement.
Below is the outfit formula I’m using for this look, which gives you the ability to choose pieces that fit your climate and lifestyle. Don’t forget to shop your closet first but if you have any gaps you want to fill, I’ve provided five different shopping options and at different price points. This allows you the freedom to shop where you want because I believe feeling great and looking great should be for everyone, every age, every size, and every budget!
