6 Shades of the Summer

Here are some 6 shades that are trending this summer, and how to style them. I am obsessed with these colors (especially yellow), and I have had so much fun incorporating more color into my outfits!IMG_9549.jpeg

Pink- Light pink and bubblegum pink are shades that you are going to want to have in your closet this summer. What’s great about this color is how subtle it is. It’s not too bold, but it will still make a statement. My favorite color to wear with light pink is sky blue (like the picture below). I just love this color combo!


Yellow- This is my personal favorite color this summer! Partially because I finally got my tan back (I literally have never been so pale in my life after moving to Boston). I have recently had a lot of luck finding cute yellow clothes at Forever 21. That is where I got both of these outfits! Instead of yellow being the main focus of your outfit, make it a pop of color! I love wearing yellow statement earrings to spruce up my outfit in an adventurous way (like I did with my outfit in the sky blue section). I usually pair yellow with black, blue, and sometimes red. 

Red- Red is great for every season, but this summer particularly, I can’t stop buying red! Red is also a great accent color. If you don’t want to wear an overwhelming amount of red, add a pop of red with your shoes, lipstick, or accessories. Sometimes if I think my outfit is too boring, I’ll throw on my red pair of shoes or my red purse to make the outfit more fun! My favorite color to wear red with is black. You can never go wrong with black and red.

Sky Blue- This is another great accent color that looks great with black or red. I personally haven’t found many sky blue tops or dresses that I am absolutely obsessed with so I will usually wear this color as an accent color (like I did with this outfit). Or I will wear light blue jeans! Light wash jeans are great for the summer and look amazing with any of the colors in this post!


Army Green/Forest Green- Army green is another color that is amazing for all seasons. I cannot get enough things that are army green. This color especially looks great if you have more of an olive complexion. I always pair my army green clothes with black, white, and sometimes grey. This color is a staple piece you need have in your closet!


Lavender/purple- When I was 5, purple was the only color I would wear and now my school color is purple. Purple is a HARD color to find for clothing (I found this purple satin top at Boohoo). A great, more subtle shade of purple is lavender! This shade is easier to find and should at most of your favorite stores! If you’re feeling adventurous this summer, you should try this shade out!


I hope this post helped give you some inspiration for the summer!  I don’t know if you’re like me, but I am definitely guilty of wanting to wear black every single day. This summer, I have been trying to add a pop of color to my outfits more often! Remember, if you don’t want to buy a whole new summer wardrobe, just buy some colorful accessories or shoes to revamp your wardrobe!
