Beauty Community Tip: Summer Essentials

I am so happy that temps are getting warmer. I’m so ready for Spring and Spring fashion! If you haven’t heard anything about this season’s “in” colors, be prepared to be playful! The hot colors this season are punchy and pretty. Think greens in all shades, Nectarine, Violet, Lemon Zest, and Monaco Blue! I am ready to transition my wardrobe.

Here’s what I’ve spotted are the Spring fashion trends:

Bermuda Shorts
Cool girl shorts were all over the runways and it’s perfect for us girls that don’t want to wear those really short-shorts (ahem, practically butt-baring). This is the more sophisticated and chic version in all the fun colors and I’m all over it!

Stripe overload! Seriously, there were so many stripes on the runways. You can’t help sport a classic, nautical look with all the different apparel options: tees, sweaters, bikinis, pants, even formal dresses! It makes you want to go sailing!

I’ve read that it could be due to the “Fifty Shades of Gray” phenomenon, but peek-a-boo outfits, and S&M-detailed dresses were quite abundant on the runways, so expect it to be the look on your spring and summer nights out. It will definitely be easy to be sexy with midriff-baring options and leather details.

Statement Sunglasses
In the OC, statement sunglasses are always in… no matter what the season! For this Spring, find some specs that are louder and more fabulous than you normally wear!

Short Suits
It’s super easy to be a businesswoman that’s serious with work, yet trendy with clothes with all the amazing short suit options! I’m really digging this trend – I love the look - so tailored yet casual! It’s the perfect outfit for all my meetings running the GC Enterprise!

What are some trends you will try this season?
