Stylish Summertime

Has Mother Nature finally made up her mind? After consecutive days of sunshine and warm weather, it’s safe to say that summer has arrived in Minnesota  - whew! Summertime is known as the season for days spent at the lake (after all, there are over 10,000 to choose from), picnics and barbeques, and numerous opportunities for travel. As you sit here daydreaming about how you plan to spend your summer, here is a list of up and coming trends to get you started on your summer shopping spree: Monochromatic White - Be it girly, crisp, or nautical, wearing all white will keep your look fresh this season.

Floral Prints - Reminisce on the carefree feeling of the nineties by sporting floral prints in boxy tees, maxi skirts, and strappy summer dresses.

Honeysuckle, Citrus Colors – Solid pieces in bright, bold colors are refreshing on a warm humid day.

Rose Gold Accessories - This jewelry will keep you in style while playing up the glow of your new tan.

Lace, Crochet, and Macrame - This slightly vintage look is easy to pull off and gives an easy feminine air.

Minimalistic Lines - Keep it simple this season with clean lines and immaculate tailoring.

70's Throwback Designs – Shop for high-waisted trousers, tie-neck blouses, and deep V's to recall the glamorous era.

Preppy Details - Rugby stripes, loafers, shrunken blazers, and cardigans will have you feeling like a J.Crew model.

Rock and Roll, Punk – A leather skirt, jackets with zipper details, or studded heels. Use this trend in small doses by pairing edgy items with classics.

Clogs and Platforms – The revival of this 70’s fashion can be paired with shorts and dresses this summer.
