AP9 SavingSmart reports that when it comes to summer time, it doesn't matter how high the temperature is on the thermometer -- it's fashion that gives the hottest season of the year its sizzle. AP9 SavingSmart, a leading membership discount program offered by Adaptive Marketing LLC, helps members get in touch with their inner fashionista by providing significant savings at popular retailers across the country.
The fashion trends for the summer of 07 incorporate bold prints and styles, feminine touches and lots of color. If going to the stores is a nightmare for you because you don't know what to get, keep a couple of things in mind: take advantage of all the discounts and sales available, buy key pieces that help build your wardrobe and enhance your body shape at the same time. To help you pick out pieces that will bring out the best of you, read the following summer fashion tips, brought to you by AP9 Saving Smart:
--Outdoor Glamour. Summer's sunny climate brings out the nature lover in every gal. The key is to look cool even when the temperature keeps rising, so ban dark hues and shop for light colors and lighter weight fabrics.
--Flower Power. Gardens and romance aren't the only things in full bloom this season. Floral patterns on lace, cotton and crocheted materials are feminine and always look fabulous, no matter the time of day. Look for paisleys, pansies and primrose patterns on wrap dresses (yes, they do flatter almost every figure), skirts and tank tops.
--Style on the Road. If shorts are what make you feel comfortable, be sure to pack some for your summer trip -- whether it's a few days at the shore or your neighbor's annual Fourth of July barbecue party, but get rid of the old pairs you've worn over the past years. This season shorts and Capri pants are tailored, comfy and classic. When you visit the store, ask yourself what would Katharine Hepburn wear and pick the ones you envision her in. Pair with tailored shirts, neutral-colored flats and simply elegant cardigans for breezy moonlight strolls.
--Primary Colors. One sure way to catch attention is to not shy away from color and dresses, a must element for women this summer. Add splashes of color with red, green and yellow pieces, from Bermuda shorts and crisp Capri pants to timeless tank tops. This summer's palette is both bold and beautiful, so dare to wear different colors and slip dresses or traffic-stopping mini skirts.
--Black & White. Leave the little black dress in the back of the closet until the weather has chilled. Instead, mix black with its opposite, white, and create sophisticated looks for anytime of the day. The combo is a classic that will never go out of style. Shop for separates or for a dress that melds the two.
--Girly style. Ruffles, lace and pleats are popping up everywhere this summer. Don't be afraid to try something new and incorporate pieces that include any of these touches on your daily wardrobe. Put on a tuxedo-style shirt with tailored pants for work or a flirty babydoll dress adorned with detail for a night out. And don't forget to incorporate metallic hues. They are totally in!
