With July in full force, I’m all about long weekends, al fresco dining, sun-kissed skin, and summer trends, of course! It’s actually one of my favorite parts of warmer weather – the chance to throw on an effortless look by way of one piece of clothing. Summer simply means simplicity to me. Don’t you agree?
And even though you’d normally pair a pretty dress with killer heels or sandals, Summer 2017 is spicing things up in the easiest way possible: slides, over everything. You’ve likely seen the shoe style everywhere, from runways to “it” girl style. Even with dresses. That’s right, pretty dresses + slides and you’ll be on track for an easy, breezy, on-trend season in the sun. Now how to get the look? It’s easy!
First up, let’s talk dresses since it’s step number one to putting together this summer look. Whether you’re a guest at a wedding, wanting to look feminine at brunch, or are over denim cutoffs, dresses are always a good option. I’m especially into detailed, unique dresses at the moment, as they elevate and add a fresh feel to your style. They also mix well with the unexpected choice of slides vs. heels or wedges. Here are some of the pairs that I’m especially crushing on:
Step 1: Pretty dress
Now, onto the really fun part, shoes, or more specifically, slides! When you aren’t feeling heels or want to look effortless, slides are the perfect accessory – and how comfy, right? With a little embellishment or faux fur, this season’s slides are far from boring, and easily one of the most accessible trends of the decade. From chic Chanel options to more affordable favorites, these are the pairs I’m scooping up:
Step 2: Slides
Are you drooling over this summer trend like I am?
