Vibrant hues are a great way to liven up any summer outfit and one of this season’s hottest colors is, without a doubt, orange. This bold hue is currently making its mark on summer fashion, and we are loving it! Like summer’s other citrusy hues, orange comes in an array of shades making it an incredibly fun and easy color to wear! From muted, earth-toned terracotta to bold and vibrant neons, there is a shade of orange that will work for anyone this summer! Here are some eye-catching summer outfits in this lively shade that have caught our eyes!

Bright & Sporty

The 4th of July is only two days away and I love a holiday that graces us with a theme for playing dress up!

July 1st, 2019 by Samantha Furno Styling 101: The Classic White T-Shirt

When we think of wardrobe essentials, a classic white t-shirt instantly comes to mind first and foremost. It is the holy grail of timeless silhouettes and there are endless variations of this basic, yet essential wardrobe piece! Smart and versatile, a white t-shirt can easily be dressed up or dressed down and it is the perfect blank canvas that will act at the foundation to any outfit. With the summer season upon us, a white tee proves to be one of the most sought after styles of the season, thanks to its breathability and versatility. If you’re looking for some fresh inspiration on how to wear your favorite tee, look no further! I’ve rounded up some awesome ways we are seeing this blank slate styled for the warmer weather below!

T-Shirt & Midi Skirt

Feminine skirts in soft hues and flirty prints are a summer must-have, so why not pair them with another summer staple, like a cropped white tee?! This style tee is a breeze to DIY too!

T-Shirt & Tailored Shorts

Tailored shorts will make a fantastic alternative to denim shorts this summer season, plus this elevated base will be made more everyday-casual when paired with a classic white t-shirt.

T-shirt & Slip Dress
