4 pieces of Fashion Advice

Is June really almost over?!  It's been wonderful collaborating with Kristen, Chelsea, and Jamie.  Each week we showcased a different summer trend.  Here's a recap from the past month, along with a fashion tip from each of us.

See full Summer Brights post here.

This might seem silly, but my fashion tip is to make sure that your clothes (bras included) fit properly. (Duh, right?!)  But for the longest time, like up until about a year ago, I was wearing clothes that were 1-2 sizes too big for me.  It's important to know your body type, to know what types of clothes and fabrics flatter you, and to totally work them!  Take a friend with you shopping, ask a sales clerk their advice/opinion, and search blogs/Pinterest to understand what types of clothes you like and to get feedback on what types of clothes work best for you!  

See full Summer Hats post here.

In terms of personal style, my hard and fast rule I live by is to accessorize.  I know that might be a no-brainer for most, but even if I'm running to the grocery store, I'll still throw on a hat or something that adds a little interest to my look....even if that look IS pretty casual. For one, you'll feel better about yourself....and two, you just never know who you'll run in to. 

See full Shorts post here.

My motto when it comes to style is to have fun and wear what makes you feel good.  If you do that your confidence shines through and you can pull off any look.  And also, never say never!

Fashion for me is trying new items that not everyone is wearing. It's fun to go with the trends but its also fun to start your own. Explore fashion and enjoy it. You will never influence the world by trying to be like it.

Honestly, I am always up on Instagram checking out people's photos. I'm not a big fan of the new video feature but I'm sure I'll get sucked into that as well haha. And I agree with your advice, if your clothes fit properly then all the stars are aligned :) Thanks for this awesome giveaway!

Having clothes fit properly is the most important thing. If they don't it could be a hairy situation. I cannot believe June is almost over it's freaking me out!

I'm so bad about accessorizing. I might throw on a pair of earings or something, but giant necklaces I just hate. My hair is real big an vibrant, so I usually think of it as my biggest accessory. Your tip is so true, figure out what looks good on you, and don't buy something that fits ok just because it's cheap or you'll never end up wearing it.

twitter and blogger of course :)
