Summer Fashion: Trendy Shorts And Collars Are In

Summer is in full swing! Get some final summer fashion advice that won’t break the bank.

Beat The Heat

Think COLORED denim but skip the pale blues and pastel greens…instead go for neon or vibrant shades of emerald or peach. You can wear this look with softer tones of the same shade, or contrast with white or yellow combined with an emerald and navy blue or even a soft teal peach. For those overcast coastal days, think layering with a long sleeve chambray denim shirt.

White Out

Nothing says summer like a pair of white shorts. Splurge a bit and think crisp cotton. Why? White goes with everything. A tight striped tank top is ideal for this look but then again, so is a loose fitted black chiffon blouse. Even more sassy? Throw on some funky accessories like bangles and necklace strands for a truly head-turning summer outfit.

Prints & Patterns

Some of this year’s top prints are geometric, floral, abstract and animal print. High-waisted shorts are also super haute! These shorts measure up next to a peplum top or a daring bustier. Want to go for a more conservative feel? Wear a denim jacket or heathered blouse over your cropped top and leave a little for the imagination. An accessory must have: belt it up! A skinny leather belt is the perfect fit to your sassy ensemble.

Textured Materials

From lace to transparent shiny materials, these shorts look best as trousers. Wear out to a client dinner or to that date with your beau. Rock with a cropped jacket in a bold floral pattern for a serious meets savvy look. Match it up with a strappy platform or a single strap high heel that is sexy and glamorous.

Distressed Denim

From acid wash to tie-dye, denim is always in and forever meant to be a summer trend. Instead of your typical baby blues, go for a distressed look or bling it up a tad with metallic or glitter designs for an extra edgy touch!

Collar Me Pretty

The Collared Shirt is a great look for summer. To pull together a complete look, pay attention to the details. Collared shirts present a very refined and sophisticated appearance, which can be extremely versatile – so dress it up or dress it down. From color, sequins, denim and even leather, Ali-Kris.com carries sexy runway styles that make a statement. Sleeveless to high-low hemlines, these versatile relaxed fit tops are ideal for any outfit.

Chiffon Collared Shirt

This light, sheer cloth is wrinkle-free and has reinvented the term “dress shirt.” The chiffon blouse, in all lengths and cuts, has taken over many closets.Chiffon Collared Shirt

We adore color because with each season a new hue falls into the hands of our fashion forward stylists and shoppers. What is your favorite Chiffon Collared Blouse?

Pleaded Collared Shirt

A new twist on a classic essential, the collared shirt has gone pleaded. The pleaded collar is unique because it brings out a geometric and even “mod” feel that is reminiscent of vintage 1960’s designs. How do you wear this origami-style collar? During the day, distressed denim shorts pair nicely with your favorite pair of leather ankle-wrap sandals. For evening, make a lasting impression by combining a lace knee length skirt and those pricey pumps you splurged on, to show off your mature side at that cocktail networking event you just can’t miss.

Studded Collared Shirt

Shiny metal jewelry is always eye catching, especially when it compliments your neckline. Some collars will show simple studs at the corners of the collared “V”, others will go all out, covering the entire area with a mixture of funky metals that appear heavy and bold. Go for a look that makes you feel confident!
