If you want to look fresh and update your look, we have all the best spring and summer fashion tips. Celebrity stylist Angie Escamilla has to know what’s on trend because she is constantly dressing Hispanic celebrities for red carpets, TV shows and magazine editorials. After speaking with her, I realized the best part is that you can recycle many items you have in your own closet and just use accessories to update your wardrobe.
Angie showed different options for spring and summer fashion a few weeks ago at a press event for Mary Kay in the Dominican Republic, where I joined other beauty and lifestyle editors. The biggest wardrobe standouts were ultra feminine and leaned towards the boho chic trend that is so comfy for warmer months. We also saw a lot of lace, crochet, floral prints, Ikat and trible prints, denim and big accessories in pastel hues.
Angie shared her tips in this video in Spanish but you can find her advice here, too:
Spring and summer fashion tips
- Flats, especially ballerina styles, keep you comfortable in warmer weather. Pick bright colors to match the season. If you prefer packing light, a nude shoe goes with everything.
- Don’t be scared of color, especially when you use it close to your face with accessories or scarves.
- If you’re planning a vacation, pack tunics you can use as dresses, cover ups, or even as blouses over jeans.
- Statement necklaces are still a huge trend; this Spring and Summer pastel colored bib necklaces and pearls are super fashionable and quickly update your outfit.
- Floral prints will give you a fresh look for Spring. If you love tribal prints, they are also on point.
- Denim is big, so take advantage of it! Have a denim jacket with you when you travel so you can dress down a jersey dress, wear it at night or even use as a coverup over your bathing suit when the sun goes down.
- Wear sun protection. A nice hat will protect your face and hair. A CC cream is also great because it gives your face a touch of color but also offers SPF.
