As August approaches, I can’t help but to think of going back to school and the upcoming fall months. While spring and fall are my two favorite seasons, it’s usually upsetting to put my summer wardrobe away in exchange for layers and chunky sweaters. This year, I’ve been a huge fan of the major summer trends in magazines, stores and runways. From Birkenstocks to monochromatic outfits and bold lips, here are my favorite trends of the summer that I’m not ready to put in the fashion archive just yet…
After becoming a festival fashion staple, this summer became all about the kimono. It’s a perfect lightweight layer that looks great with high-waisted shorts for a casual day and layers perfectly with a bathing suit on the beach! I also love the variety of color and prints that come with kimonos—they’re the perfect way to add some pop into a summer outfit.
