Today on Arizona Midday, we chatted on the do's and dont's of summer trends. While this season the top trends seem more wearable than ever, there is still a right and a wrong way. Here is how to make the most out of your summer looks. (All clothing featured on the segment was courtesy of Dillard's and Target.)
Do: Wear flat peplums like Olivia Palermo
Don't: Avoid peplums that jet out like a tutu - it isn't flattering on anyone.
Do: Go with styles with faux leather trim or detailing
Don't: Avoid leather skirts and dresses. Still too hot outside and sweaty is never a good look. Save the leather for fall.
High Low Dresses
Do: High low biased cut dresses can be elegant and perfect for a summer soiree. Try to channel Rachel Bilson here in Chanel.
Don't: Avoid styles where the high is an ultra mini skirt length or is sheer without a slip. Let's keep it classy ladies.
Do: Stripes are always a summer staple but this year, go for wide black and white stripes. This trend will carry you all the way to winter.
Don't: Stripes can be flattering or your worst style enemy. Avoid tight horizontal stripes if you are trying to minimize curves.
Do: Pick up a pair of wide legged printed pants like Alessandra Ambrossio's
chic airport look.
Don't: While it might be tempting, avoid harem style pants. While the look is fabulous in magazines, the style in real life is never as thrilling (or flattering)
