Breton stripes. I love, love these on tanks and especially on three-quarter sleeve tees. I have two, one from Anthropologie (similar) and one (thrifted) from Ralph Lauren. There's no age-expiration date on this look. They are so fresh looking with denim skirts, white jeans, dark skinnies, even with my knit maxi skirt from Gap. Which leads me to:
Maxi skirts. I was afraid to try them, fearing the most-dreaded "D" word (Dowdy). But I've worn my two knit maxis -- the Gap one, and a similar from Urban Outfitters -- many times already. No worry about having a sleek leg that day, and there are lots of options for a top piece.
Hair with texture. Well, I have to love this, whether or not it's a trend. 'Cause I got it, and it's going to express itself, whatever Vogue is saying. But I do love to see it on other women in the summer, curls and waves and frizz too, taking up more space!
wrote about my lust for a cool jacket before, and I might save up for one later this year. I'd also like a pale cotton one, with modified biker style, to balance a summer floral skirt. (Like this, only in cream, white or khaki. Know of one??)
White. It's never NOT in style of course, but I love seeing more of it, in linen maxi skirts and airy blouses. I've purchsed a few new white button downs for summer, and they look great belted over white jeans. Being ghostly pale, I used to worry about white washing me out, but now I like the look.
|Doesn't this look so cool? Literally.|
Please take a look at the Modly Chic site for more ideas, and please also let me know what you are craving (and not) among this season's trends. Have a great, summery weekend!
