Wearable Trends that Endure

9 Jun

Summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to update your wardrobe. Here are some fashionable outfits that you can easily recycle into next season.

These outfits are all from Neiman Marcus, where I attended a trend event. Above is a Proezena Schouler top, but it’s easy to mix and match any summer floral top you have. The knotted waist updates the look.

Next, is a striped shirt paired with khaki cropped pants and a blazer. What I love about this outfit is that it transitions into fall.

It’s easy to pair a striped skirt with a pop of color or vice versa — striped top with a colorful, cropped pant.

Finally, add a flounced animal print skirt with that easy-to-go-to black top.

Happy Summer!
