If the weather in your neck of the woods recently went from chilly to heat wave, you're not alone. Though you might have a few summer wardrobe pieces that you love wearing, with changing styles each year, it could be time to go on a shopping spree. Regardless of how much clothing you currently own, searching out a few key pieces for each new season is a must, even if your bank account may suffer a bit. Here are some trends you need to score for summer:
Take your tan to the next level with teal
Seafoam, aqua teal and other ocean-friendly blue-green colors are all the rage this season. A great way to get the most bang for your buck with a trendy hue like this is to purchase one signature piece, such as a blazer. According to Woman's Day, investing in a blazer means you'll be getting a piece that can just as easily work in the office as it can over a T-shirt or sundress while out with friends.
If you simply need more teal and other shades of green in your life, opt to incorporate the color palette with accessories. Picking up a few gold and turquoise bangles or painting your toes with professional nail polish like CND Nail Colour - Bolds in Green Scene could turn you into the fashionista at your office.
With teal, there are a few hues that work well with the shade and others that should be avoided at all costs. You're safe to pair a teal blouse with a black or brown skirt, but always avoid neon shades like yellow. Instead, rock hues like mustard and yellow-green to compliment the pop of green-blue fabulousness.
Sunnies for every face shape
Nothing says summer quite like a fabulous pair of sunglasses and if you're in the market for a gorgeous new style, figuring out what looks best with your face shape is the first step. The pros at Woman's Day suggest taking a look in the mirror to figure out if you have a square, heart, oblong or round face. Once you know, you'll easily be able to narrow down what shades will compliment your unique look.
Ladies with square faces look best in round shades, while heart-shaped cuties stun in wayfarer-style sunglasses. Wrap styles are perfection on women with oblong shapes and round-faced babes will be fabulous in square-shaped shades.
