Current Fabulous Obsessions

Now that I’ve ranted about what I’m really hating on lately, I decided it would be best to look at the glass half full. Here are a few trends that I’m currently loving on for summer.

Wedges.

Preferably in natural tan colors, these are my new favorite go-to shoes. They’re sexy without being over the top like stilettos, they’re easy breezy for summer, and they can be dressed up or down with ease. I love them in tan colors with cork – perfect for summer getaways.

Peplum.

Love, love, love this! It’s such a fabulous and flirty trend. It creates an instant hourglass shape and is a perfect update for any wardrobe. Bonus: It’s always chic-looking, even if it’s not a #1 trend like it is now.

Lace.

Lace adds effortless sophistication and ladylike vibes to any outfit. Wear it for fun with bright neon underneath, for evening as a black lace dress, or wear it however the heck you want. Another timeless classic, this fabulous piece is trendy AND will last in your closet for years to come.

Colorblocking.

This is sort of a do-it-yourselfer, as you can take colorful pieces you already own and put them together. But here’s an example I made up using hm.com’s dressing room feature.

HM.com, Total: $75

I find this trend to be fashion-made-easy. Grab some colors that go together (think a couple bright neons or a few primaries) and you have an easy, chic outfit. Or wear a plain black or white dress and color block your accessories to inject some fun into your ensemble!

Denim.

There’s been a resurgence of denim recently that I’m loving. Brightly colored jeans, cute denim dresses, fabulous denim button downs – you name it, it’s out there. Embrace the denim, but remember not to overdo it. No one wants to be caught in a Canadian tuxedo.
