Aside from your usual pair of jeans you throw on in the morning, add another denim piece to your outfit. From button-ups to kicks and even bow ties there are endless possibilities when it comes to denim ensembles. Denim pockets on a regular T-shirt present an easy way to get a little extra denim in. Play with the different washes, styles and designs to create a diverse look. Denim up, boys!

SUMMER 2013 TRENDS

I know it's hot and leather isn't the coolest material, but beauty is pain and leather is in! Stay cool with leather shorts, tanks and strapless peplum tops. Or get your leather fix with accessories. Studded wrap around bracelets are a summer must have and classy clutches never go out of style.

You can never have enough denim, or at least that's the motto for this summer. We are seeing denim make a huge comeback with far from subtle full on denim ensembles. The other cool thing about this trend is that you can doctor it up, cut it to shreds and pair it with anything. D.I.Y styling has become a huge way of fashion over the past couple of years and this fabric is the easiest and most rewarding to mess with. It's like we fell back into the 90's. *cue: NSYNC*

The easiest and most statement setting piece you can add to any look this summer: the graphic T-shirt and tank top. These versatile tops are trumping any other blouse and giving our outfits attitude and diversity. Always dressing professionally? No problem! Keep your formal attire and throw on one of these tanks under your blazer, roll up your sleeves and kick back a little. 


Bold Prints, denim, fashion, summer trends, summer trends 2013, style, what to wear, leather

With this trend we can all be a prints-cess (princess) this summer! Mix and match your favorite patterns for an out of this world look. Prints are so fun to incorporate into any style. It's as simple as throwing some busy patterned sneakers on with a basic outfit, or dangerously pairing leopard and camouflage, off the chain! You may not be the only chick at the party with those floral shorts on, but you're the only girl who would dare to match it with that tribal print top, genius! 


Stripes, denim, fashion, summer trends, summer trends 2013, style, what to wear, leather

We're stealing Beetlejuice's swag, he won't mind. Stripes are this summer's must have. Runways have showcased stripes from head to toe, but my advice is to stripe subtly. A stripe clutch or watch can really add to any outfit, and while it's only a subtle touch of stripe it goes a long way. Striped tops are a great addition to any outfit. They act just like a graphic T-shirt or tank top adding emphasis or giving your outfit that extra something it was missing.
