The Simplified List of Spring and Summer Essentials

April 18, 2011

Although the weather insists on performing a few surprise acts, spring is undeniably on it’s way. With that comes the spring/summer it items. (Remember that Spring Inspiration post?)

I’m a high school student with parents who insist on budgeting. Needless to say this pretty much limits my shopping escapades and buying new trends every season. But I’m not complaining. Honestly, just think of it; buying new trend items every other month? Maybe it’s just my upbringing, but doesn’t that seem like an awful lot of waste of money? Anyhow, after scouring the web for whats hot, I’ve hit upon the best options that are wearable even if they’re not in. So basically, you get your moneys worth regardless the season.

spring wedges

Peep-toes, espadrilles, clog bottoms, wooden heels, ankle straps, or wedge booties, wedges give you a wide array of options. Personally I think that these are the most easiest transition items. Feeling cold? Pair wedge booties with skinny jeans, long top and throw on a scarf. Going picnicking? Wear ankle strap wedges with shorts and a cute floral tank. Voila!

Think 70’s chic, boho, hippie. These little accessories can perk up the simplest outfit and add that dash of quirkiness without looking eccentric. It’s my favourite trend for this spring and I suggest you try it out too!

Short front hemlines and long back hemlines are the most popular version of this trend. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other great options either. Though asymmetrical hemlines were mostly seen in crop tops, now we can see this trend incorporated in other pieces too. An asymmetrical skirt with a fitted top would look great on sunny days as would a tank with an irregular hemline on skinny jeans.

What are your favourite trends for spring and summer?

    Love the romance of flirty hems … so feminine, love these dresses over jeans … always loving anything bohemian.

    I love the idea of asymmetrical hemlines because they are so fun and almost have a wild side to their nature. (Also good for hiding waistlines. heheh)

    For this summer, I like sheer fabrics and chiffon, as well as bright colors. I’m also LOVING flatforms, hahaha.

    Harem pants too.
