Fashion File: 8 Summer Trends to Try

With Summer like temperatures, it’s time to stock up on easy-breezy clothes, and if you’re looking to incorporate some fun pieces into your Summer wardrobe, here are 8 trends that are going strong for the season. Which ones are you most excited about? I could definitely see myself wearing all these except perhaps the Jelly Bag?…I think I’m more of a straw bag kind of girl. The net bag is fun for the beach and ruffled skirts are incredibly feminine and flirty, a great option if you’re in need of a dressier look. Keep reading for my personal faves on each!

Ruffled Skirt: Like I just said, ruffled skirts are a great option for Summer occasions that require you to dress up a bit. They are incredibly feminine and can be easily paired with wedges, flat sandals, heels, or even sneakers for low key weekend strolls.
