Summer Trends – Proven Winners Part 2 of 3

Fashion Trends and Friends along with their millennial advisory, Courtney, went on a recent shopping adventure.  The mission was to locate our top three picks for summer must haves at some of our favorite stores.  FTF is presenting a three series blog!  We will share our top three picks based on trends, price point and comfort.  This week we will present our top finds from Ann Taylor and Loft!

The Cold Shoulder

FTF is soooo happy this trend continues!  It is a fun look that everyone can wear because everyone has beautiful shoulders! However, not all of us can say the same about our upper arms from a size or skin perspective.  Not to worry because the cold shoulder sleeve beautifully solves the problem by offering just the right amount of coverage. We fell in love with this particular top.  The vertical stripes are slimming, the fabric doesn’t cling and flows beautifully away from the waist camouflaging a chubby middle and the flowy three quarter bell sleeves offer enough coverage for cooler spring days but will also keep you cool in the summer.

Shop the Look:

Bright Colors, Lace and Sunflowers!

This spring you will see lots of bright colors,  lace and sunflowers.  Loft combined all three in this amazing sleeveless shell.  For me it was love at first sight.  I had to have it!  With a spray tan, I may even be brave enough to bare my arms!

Tassels Tassels Everywhere!

This spring tassels are on everything and this top from Loft is no exception.  I am always in search of a cute top to wear on the weekends while running errands.  This split neck tasseled number is perfect.   It is a little pricey but worth it from my perspective for two reasons.  First and foremost, I love the way it looks and feels.  That alone almost justifies the price but it also is very versatile.  I will pair it with shorts and jeans and can even dress it up with a scarf or jewelry.  As an added bonus it flows away from the waist hiding any muffin top!  The three quartered banded sleeves are perfect for spring and summer.  It also comes in three colors.  I just might have to order the one in guava jelly!
