tailing such as scalloped edges or lace around the hem. It can be quite flattering on your legs rather than a straight cut hem too. Style with a loose, shirt, large tote and sandals, and ta-da, an easybreezy look! 3. OFF-THE-SHOULDER Speaking of styling shorts, off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses are back! Long-sleeved, short-sleeved, whatever you prefer, if there’s one trend making a comeback I’m excited for, it’s this. For looser shirts, I recommend styling with shorts or fitted pants/jeans for cooler evenings. If you want to wear with a skirt and not look bulky, try tucking in the shirt. 4. ARM CUFFS This summers’ trends are making me feel major nostalgia. When I saw arm cuffs making their comeback I got reminiscing. The top of my arms aren’t one of my favorite parts, so my personal take on this trend is to wear cuffs further up my lower arm. We all have our areas we love more or less, so whatever makes you feel good, own it. Don’t be afraid to create your personal takes on trends! 37 5. SLIP DRESSES This is one trend that can be a hit if worn right. There’s a thin line between it looking classy and looking like it should be saved for the bedroom. To style for a cool daytime look, pair with flats, a cardigan or lightweight blazer, and larger purse. The mix in textures will create a softer look. My personal take is to wear a top in this style with jeans. I love the mix of denim with lace and silk textures.
