Fashion trends cycle, and the 2017 trend for summer seems to be rompers. This flashback from the late 1980s is welcomed by some, but it might not be right for you. Whether or not you like to wear rompers in the summertime, you can use these four tips to fill out your summer wardrobe and have fun while doing it.

Choose a Couple of Flowing Skirts

If you have a special event to attend, such as a graduation party, bridal shower or a cozy dinner for two, a flowing skirt is a nice way to dress up without being overdone. A flowing skirt that is made out of cotton will be comfortable even on a hot and humid day. Another good fabric choice is linen, which has a light weave and is highly breathable.

Buy a Wide-brimmed Hat

A wide-brimmed hat is an essential for the summertime. Popular hat shapes and styles change on an annual basis. If you wear the hat outside every day for four or five months of the year, you might need to replace it on an annual basis. Consider a freshly styled wide-brimmed hat that has a colorful feature such as a scarf or ribbon around the edge.

Invest in a Pair of Quality Sunglasses

Another way to fulfill your summertime fashion needs is to purchase a pair of high-quality sunglasses. With sunglasses, you really do get what you pay for. Select a pair that offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays from the sun. Make sure that the sunglasses fit you properly and that the lenses extend past and around the edges of your eyes.

Summer Rompers

Rompers are one of those any occasion outfits that appeal to many different types of women.  They can easily be altered with flair to accent the entire form.  They come in many different styles and patterns, such as those available from Ooh La Luxe, so there’s always something everyone can find to suit them. Whether going to the pool, or just cruising the main thoroughfare, staying in style with a colorful romper is always a hit.

Select a Few Pairs of Dangling Earrings

Investing in a few inexpensive accessories for the summer allows you to have some fun with your outfits. A couple of pairs of dangling earrings may be just what you need to finish off your summertime look. Costume jewelry is affordable and is usually made to coordinate with multiple outfits. You might be surprised at how a pair of earrings can totally change the way you look.

A couple of fun accessories, a few pieces of new clothing and an investment in a pair of sunglasses may be just what you need in order to round out your summer wardrobe. When the weather starts to cool down you will still be able to make use of the accessories. You could even pair the skirt with a tank and cardigan for autumn.
