FBFF - Summer Trends

I feel like we just did this not so long ago but that must have been spring trends... So today's topic for the Fashion Beauty Friend Friday (FBFF) hosted by Katy from Modly Chic is on

1. Eclectic/Tribal Patterns - these are popping up everywhere from 'Ikat' designs to 'ethnic' jewelry.
You can follow the trend with tops or harem pants, mini or maxi skirts in these patters. Or go small with scarves or bags. Adding beaded jewelry (braceles, necklaces, earings) also work.

2. Neon Colors -
Total 80's neons but mixed with current neutrals. The trend is adding a 'pop' of neon to an ordinary colored outfit. You can go a bit bolder and have a main clothing item in a neon color, like a top or a skirt or shoes. Or go smaller with accessories like purses or even make-up and nail polish.

3. Feathers -
These are seen mainly in accessories, necklaces and earings primarily. Also clips with long strings ending with feathers for clipping inside your hair is very in. So are headbands with feathers.

4. Hats -
From straw to patterned fedora's to 70's style big floppy sun hats they are totally in this summer. Over sundresses or to the beach with swim suit and cover up they add instant style to any outfit.

5. Safari Style -
This includes animal patterns (think leopard, zebra, cheetah), khaki and army green colored jackets, pants, shorts and shirt dresses...
