I will be posting two summer trends for you to try in preparation for the official first day of summer (June 21st!)
T-back bikini tops. These bathing suits are a modern twist on the traditional string bikini, which first made its debut in the 1970s. The T-back design features a strap that comes around to meet at the back of the neck and then extends down to meet the lower strap, creating a “T” shape. It draws attention to shoulders, arms, and even the lower back. (Think of it as the racerback of bathing suits.) Try a thicker center strap in a bold print or a thinner strap that contrasts with your bottoms to make a statement.

Clear beach totes. Transparency is the latest trend to hit the fashion world, and it is popping up everywhere. Instead of the classic straw or canvas beach bag, opt for a see-through option with straps in punchy colors or patterns. Pack your bag with cute beach accessories, including a fun beach towel and sunscreen. Then grab your umbrella, and let the contents of your bag tell everyone where you’re headed for the day! Also, don’t be afraid to use a transparent tote as double-duty: it can punch up a simple outfit instantly when worn as a handbag.
