It's getting warmer...

With the summer solstice just weeks away, are you prepared for the wardrobe shift? Or are you still wearing last season's fashions? Well, here's a blog post to give you some ideas for the upcoming season. According to Glamour Magazine, this summer is going to be the "sexiest era yet" for your wardrobe.

Bold colors, such as red, are a trend that will be hot this season. When wearing red, it is suggested to wear matching red lipstick for a look that could kill.

One popular summery looks are the maxi skirts and dresses. These bohemian, floor-length garments have been seen all over the place lately, and the light fabric is ideal for the hotter temperatures.

How about a simple way to keep cool this summer - bring the shade with you! With oversized hats, keep the sun out of your face while still looking trendy.

As seen on many celebrities.

One trend that's bleeding through from spring to summer is sporty couture. You can't go wrong with light fabrics and neon colors this season.

Swimsuit season is just around the corner! While people are already getting into their bikinis and heading down to the beach, let's see what's in store for this summer - which is less than a month away! What's more, one-pieces and high-waisted bikinis are making their way back to popularity, which are more favorable options for those who are body-conscious. 

One trend this summer is color contrasting, primarily black and white. Make a statement on the sands this summer with these profound prints.

Tummy-conscious ladies, rejoice! Another trend that was hot on the runway was architectural one-pieces - a "high-brow" way to display curves, according to Harper's Bazaar.

Here's an interesting one - knit bathing suits are in style this season. Kerry Pieri from Harper's Bazaar states that this trend is "A sexy nod to retro crochet done up for the modern surfer girl."
