Summer has arrived, and with it, a whole new wardrobe! (Or at least it feels like it since we were stuck in our winter wear for so long). And since we here at Capital Area Women’s LifeStyle Magazine are a bit out of practice with summer dressing, we turned to our friends at Kellie’s Consignments for a few ideas on how to look summer chic. This sailor-esque ensemble is perfect for Fourth of July celebrations and beyond. Put on a cute pair of wedges and you’ve got an office-ready look or slip on these adorable flats for a more casual vibe. Dress by Talbots, $24.99; Shoes by Kate Spade, $49.99; Infiniti scarf, $10.99; Bracelets $7.99 to $9.99 each, all available at Kellie’s Consignment. Poolside Pretty One-piece bathing suits are all the rage this season. A floral print with a black background is the perfect way to add a punch of color to a super-flattering suit. A matching sarong, a big beach hat and a beach bag are accessory musts. Suit by Your Best Look $19.99; Cover up by Your Best Look, $8.99; Sun hat, $7.99; Sunglasses by Diamond Eyewear, $12.99; Beach bag, $39.99 all available at Kellie’s Consignments. Blue Babe When the occasion calls for a bit more polish, grab a piece like this blue and black dress. The black panel sides are super flattering and the blue print and detail on the shoulder add just the right amount of interest. Dress by Joseph Ribkoff, $44.99; Shoes by Van Eli, $34.99; Bag by Kate Spade, $189.99; Sunglasses, $12.99, Necklace, $6.99, all available at Kellie’s Consignments. Floral Fashion When the weather warms up, it seems fashionistas are drawn to floral prints. Go with a classic like this piece with fun punches of pink and yellow, the fun accessories and bright top complete the look. Skirt by Nancy Bolen, $24.99; Tank by Joseph Ribkoff, $16.99; Sunglasses by Dolce & Gabbana $69.99; Hat $10.99; Necklace, $14.99 all available at Kellie’s Consignments. [nggallery id=287]
