Summer is in full swing- and I’m loving every minute of it. Last month I showed you the top 20 trends to walk down the runway, but here’s the civilian version for you. Fashion is something that’s constantly changing, an idea designers propose a few times a year with their fashion shows. What we actually put on our bodies is very different, and is not always what we see on the runway, though it influences it quite a bit. That’s what I was trying to explain when I came up with the name for my blog, Clothes & Fashion. I didn’t do a very good job, though, but I tried! Haha. Anyways, here is a list with 10 essential items to update your wardrobe!

1. Sandals. These season, chunky sandals are all the rage! Even Birkenstocks are in, but I don’t encourage them…try to find a prettier brand!

2. Art prints. Let your creative side show with pop art prints, brush strokes, or geometric patterns!

3. Ethnic prints. Tribal, tropical, Andean…just a few of the many print options from around the world you can rock this summer!

4. Bomber jacket. For a fun and relaxed summer look, pair a bomber or varsity jacket with cut-out jeans and sneakers!

5. Hats. Protect your face from dangerous sun rays, while looking cute all at once!

6. Sunglasses. Sunglasses this season are way over the top! Pick a fun color, or a chic mirrored pair!

7. Backpacks. Carry all your essentials in a fun backpack, and keep your hands free for the things that really matter this summer- like eating ice cream, or snapping a selfie with your girlfriends.

8. Sporty looks. Mesh, neoprene, cotton; these are some of the fabrics that will make you look sporty, without actually having to exercise.

9. Full skirts. Feel extra feminine and extra flirty in a full skirt. See me rock one, right over here!

10. Crop tops. If you can only buy one item in this list, make it a crop top. No summer wardrobe will be complete without a little midriff action!
