POLO SHIRTS  – polo style shirts have made a tremendous mark on SS15 fashion. For any occasion that you might (picnic, date night, work, etc.) the polo stye shirt is definitely recommended to keep you both cool and stylish this summer. Don’t be afraid to search for those loud patterns for your polos either. It’s the summer and BOLD & BRIGHT colors are most acceptable and honestly needed to for your style.  Also in order to keep you cool with this item, try to purchase breathable materials such as cotton and dri-fit fabrics.

FLAT FRONT SHORTS – The summer wouldn’t be cool without shorts!!! And what better way to be stylish than add some flat front shorts to your wardrobe. Flat front shorts are casual shorts that practically go with anything you can think of.  Unlike cargo shorts, flat front shorts only have a 4 pockets and usually made shorter than other types of shorts. In SS15 season, flat front shorts seem to be bolder and brighter, just like everything else. Pink seems to  a very hot color this summer and dabble in the different variations of the color and have some fun. Also some tips on how to wear your flat fronts: ROLL ‘EM! Give your shorts a one roll cuff and add a little prep to your outfit. Look for Patterns! Gingham, Plaid, Floral, Geometric, etc. Don’t hesitate to be creative when purchasing this piece and crafting your outfit this summer

Here are some trendy frames for SS15: Aviators, Club Master, Round and Classic! And personally with shades, I don’t believe in brands, even tho there are superior brands that you can choose from, you can still pick whatever shades you want. Whether that be from a Ray-Bans store or your local One-Stop Gas Station.

HATS – SS15 fashion has a small place for baseball caps, boater hats, fedoras and porkpie styles. Mastering the art of wearing a hat can maximize your outfit to it’s fullest potential. With all the essential items we have spoken of already, a nice hat can be the cherry on top that you need for your outfit! Porkpie seems to be one the hot summer style and absolutely my favorite style of hat! But no matter what style of hat you choose, as long as it works for you and your style, ROCK IT!
