9. Sparkle and Shine
You will find lots of sparkle out there this summer, and not just as evening wear, so don't be afraid to shine in the daytime too! Look for metallic off-colors such as pewter over a polished silver and dirty bronze over a shiny gold for one of this summer's hottest trends.
Accessories are a great way to incorporate trends into your wardrobe in an inexpensive way. You could easily add a tribal print scarf or a Panama hat to an outfit to make it summer-sizzling. Bangles and beaded jewelry will also update your look. For instance, add a bunch of bangles in neon colors to your favorite outfit, and it is instantly updated and right on-trend. But don’t forget to use accessories that are appropriate for your shape and size. Larger ladies can wear larger pieces, while smaller frames need to utilize smaller accessories.
