Summer Trend: Daytime Metallics

Metallics have usually been reserved for a night out on the town or a holiday event, but for Spring/Summer this year lots of designers showed the glitzy gold & silver for daytime (remember Fashion Week wayyyy back in February?). See how you can take on the trend this summer, below:

Dress Like You Mean It!

How much do you think about what you’re wearing when you get dressed in the morning? Maybe you just have a lot of pieces in your closet that you just aren’t sure how to wear? We’ve got a few ideas below to help you “dress like you mean it!”

 

Date Night:

Stretch Lace Dress- Free People sz S $32

 This Free People dress is nice on its own, but don’t you think it looks even better with a fun necklace, an animal print belt and a little cross body bag (pop of color, anyone??!)? Now you’re ready for that dinner & a movie 🙂
