June 21st, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: How to Make a Summer Fashion Statement

We all know that with rising temperatures, wearing multiple layers and heavy fabrics gets pretty uncomfortable. Spending the summer in light, breezy and easy pieces will keep you comfortable, but they may not be as fun to wear as you want them to be. Adding pieces with statement features or wearing statement accessories will help you stay stylish and keep cool in the hottest heat.

Here are my favorite ways to them into your outfit this summer!

Fringe is in and having its moment in the sun—literally! Fringe shouldn’t only be reserved for heavy jackets and scarves. It can easily be a part of your summer wardrobe too. A fun way to mix up your look and add a funky vibe to your outfit is to add pieces and accessories with fringe detail into your wardrobe. A sure tip to pull it off: pair fringe with minimalistic pieces to offset any rodeo or costume vibes.
