This summer, fashion will be taking us a whole lot closer to the ocean with some gorgeous seaside styles.  Think boating babe meets Hamptons hottie with faded stripes, flowy fabrics, and a super laid-back vibe.


Faded stripes are a great way to get into this trend.  It’s very close to the ‘nautical’ trend but with more of a relaxed feel.  I absolutely love the look of a striped playsuit or off-the-shoulder dress.  It’s absolutely perfect for summer.


A beautiful, bright-white shirt is a staple in every woman’s closet.  This season though, we’re looking at styles with a bit more of a relaxed fit.  Thinner, breezier fabrics like cheesecloth and cotton are also a must.  I love to wear this style with rolled up sleeves and denim cut off’s.  Otherwise, a simple shirt-dress is never out of the question.


Rope ties are another great way to really nail this trend.  You can buy these in store or just DIY with a slim rope you have lying around at home (provided it’s clean!) It’s a fun, unique way to hold up a pair of high-waisted shorts or accentuate your waist in a dress.  


I’m already a huge fan of a wide-brimmed hat.  The fact that it’s so on trend right now is just a bonus!  If you really want to go all out on this trend try a large, straw hat.  I like to stick to the poolside vibe though with one of those wide-brimmed, floppy styles.
