Despite the bitter cold weather we’ve been experiencing in New York, Summer is right around the corner!  And with Summer weather comes a new Summer wardrobe.  I have started stocking up since November… And I thought I’d share the trends I think will be big this season.

My favorite item for Summer 2013 is High Waisted Denim Shorts!

I am seriously obsessed with this look.  High waist jeans are flattering on almost every body type.  Every retail store is stocking up on these must have shorts so, no matter your budget, there are a pair just for you.  My most recent purchases have been from online sellers who customize the shorts the way you like; studs, lace, tears, etc…  I love the vintage feel of this style.

You can rock these with a basic white tee or vintage band tee or with a sleek button up.  Just about everything looks good with a pair of high waist shorts.  Flip flops for the beach, a pair of high tops for a rocker feel, or a towering pair of platform wedges.

Speaking of floral…

Floral prints are a trend that never go out of style.  And floral will be everywhere this year.

Personally, I like my florals mixed with something a little structured or hard looking.  Think 90’s grunge but an updated version!  Adding denim to any floral print basically gives you a vintage grunge look.  A denim vest with a strapless floral summer dress or a denim shirt with floral shorts, maybe?

Now for the my color choices for this Summer (drum roll!) …

Mint and Coral!

My sister Theresa is actually the person to bring these wonderful colors into my wardrobe decisions.  I have always been someone who favored the furthest ends of the light spectrum (Black and White) … Summer was always a big white season for me.  I love the contrast of my tan skin against a gleaming white piece of clothing, but I have severely underestimated the subtle glow of a mint green and coral item.  Because of their neutral tones these colors can be part of almost any outfit or any article of clothing.

There are so many trends that are going to be popular this Summer and I wish I could list them all but instead I’ll just post some pics of some items I think should be in every girl’s wardrobe this Summer season!

  1. High waisted denim shorts are not a staple all women should be sporting about. Very few can pull these off well. Everyone else (ie. the majority!) should stay very far away from these hideous gems that never should have resurfaced.

  2. I liked that you incorporated the American Flag detail. It has definitely been a trend lately and since the fourth of July is a major event of every summer it makes perfect sense that it would continue to live on into the summer.
