It’s official. Summer sixteen is on deck! I can already tell that this summer is going to be full of day parties, festivals, concerts, travel with the girls and good old fashion fish frys (or fries, I really don’t know how that works). If any of these are on your to-do list than you’ll probably be having an equally amazing summer. But there is no use in having an amazing summer if your style doesn’t match. I mean, there will be Instagram pictures, Facebook live videos, Snapchat stories. You’re basically going down in history (because, you know, the Internet is forever), so you want to look your best.

Here are the 5 things you need to take your summer style from 0 to 100.

Summer is the perfect time to stand out and have a little fun. When decorating, interior designers use different colors to create different moods and the same concept applies to your clothes. Bright colors can help establish cheer, energy and grab attention.  The perfect way to set the right tone for summer sixteen.

Summer isn’t summer without a little sexy. A backless top is a great way to show a little skin and feel the breeze without being too revealing. It’s also an easy way to dress up a pair of jeans or shorts. Opt for a backless top instead of a white tee to step up your everyday look.

Maxi Wrap Dress

A wrap dress is one of those items that will never fail you. It’s a classic and it works for anytime of the year. The maxi version scream easy, breezy, beautiful summer girl. It can be dressed up or down to fit any occasion; not to mention that it’s  figure flattering.

Lace Up Sandals

This $17 top has been in heavy rotation for the past few weeks. The link to purchase is on www.justmissedtherunway.com. It also comes in several colors.

Whether they are heels or flats, lace ups can add a little something extra to any plain outfit. Want to take a dress or romper from basic to  bad? Lace them up!

Take a risk this summer and rock white from head to toe. Warning: you will be anxious about eating. However, you’ll be a knockout!
