With this past weekend marking the official start of the summer season, we caught up with Kim at Misguided Angels in Brambleton Town Center to see what’s in style and what can beat the heat this summer.
Summer’s finally here. What clothes are trending this season?
Dresses, dresses, dresses. Long or short, dresses are our #1 seller for summer because they are easy (you don't have to put together coordinating pieces), they make you feel pretty, and they are a great way to beat the heat! Other hot sellers are distressed boyfriend jeans, strapless tube tops, and flowy palazzo pants. It's all about looking cute while being comfy at the same time.
How about accessories? What’s hot?
The number one trend in accessories that we will continue to see through fall is fringe. Fringe is everywhere - on clothing, purses, and shoes. It's a fun way to accessorize and bring out your bohemian side! Statement necklaces and platform wedges also continue to be hot sellers this season.
Do you have any summer outfit suggestions for a mom on the go?
For the Mom on the go, a cute sundress is a quick and simple solution that will take you anywhere, whether it's work or play. Stay away from the strapless options if you have small children to avoid wardrobe malfunctions!
The babysitter is scheduled. What summer styles are good to go out in?
Jumpsuits are a fun option for a night out. A jumpsuit can be sexy and sophisticated, yet comfy and practical at the same time. Another great option is to pair a tank top with some fun feature (open back or embellished/beaded front) with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans and a great pair of heels.
Do you have any fashion secrets for beating the summer heat (and D.C.’s humidity)?
The best way to look cool and feel cool this summer is a short sundress or a short romper. They both look great while covering as little as possible and allowing your body to breathe.
Any other fashion tips for the summer?
Keep it simple! When it's hot, keep your jewelry and accessories to a minimum — a great pair of statement earrings goes a long way! And get yourself a great pair of neutral colored wedges; wedges are comfortable, go with everything from shorts to dresses, and make your legs look longer and leaner!
Whether you’re looking for some light new outfits to don this summer or just a few accessories to throw into the mix, head to Misguided Angels at Brambleton Town Center and Kim and her team will help you pick out something that fits your lifestyle!
