Details always do it for me and button details are especially on trend this spring season! There are a lot of ways that buttons are be incorporated into your daily looks. They can be on a classic button-down shirt, the back of a silky day dress or the cuffs of a blouse. Buttons are just one way that you can add detail to your looks. This summer there are a lot of details on trend such as tie sleeves, cutouts, side knots, and embroidery!

2. Lightweight fabrics

My favorite summertime fabrication is linen. Linen is one of the oldest materials used in clothing and with good reason! Linen is a light weight, breathable fabric that is perfect for the summer heat. Linen is especially good for summer work or vacation wear as you can get a long pant leg style and will still stay nice and cool whether your in the office or one the beach! As natural fibers becomes more and more of a trend, you will see linen making their way into the spot light! 

3. Statement bags

During the spring we start to see statement bags being released that give us an idea of what summer statement bags will be on trend. This year: woven straw handbags! I love these bags for a few reason. One, I love to see how trends evolve through the year from season to season. Circular handbags started being on trend this past fall and I love how that shape that we all loved was brought through into summer statement bags. I also love that these bags are vintage-inspired from styles dating as far back as the 1950s! During my vintage hunting I have seen many vintage bags like this and I love seeing amazing pieces from the past make a reprise in mainstream fashion trends! 

4. Stylized shorts

I never really got into shorts until this year. I know that sounds insane but living in Cleveland you can wear pants or jeans year round while still being comfortable. I still have all my bottoms out and it's the middle of June! But I randomly tried on a pair of high-waisted shorts like the ones above and a fell in love. I quickly bought three more pairs and now I am hooked!

5. Sexy swimwear

Every season I pick a category of clothing that my wardrobe is not super strong in and I focus on getting those pieces up to par with the rest of my style. This season one of those categories were swimsuits! I am an island girl at heart so even though Cleveland only has a few good summer months a year, you better believe that I am taking advantage of it! One of the best ways I do that is by going to the lake on hot summer days where a cute swimsuit is a must!
