I love summer. I love the heat, I love the sun, and I especially love not being in school with school dress codes. It seems the clothing people out there know this because most of the summerís hottest fashions wonít even come close to fitting in any school dress code I know about.

Prints and Patterns

This summer is all about patterns. Boys and girls are wearing patterned shorts and tops, but the patterned shorts are definitely the seasonís must have item. Put together a great pair of floral shorts with a cool white top and youíre ready for the beach, the mall, or if youíre really lucky, the school day.

Youíll find prints and patterns on everything from shorts to shirts to jackets to handbags to shoes. Love it or leave it, print is in Ė get ready.

Bare Shoulders

Like every summer bare shoulders are in style. This summer, the tube top is back in a big way including tube dresses and halter styles. Loose fitting dresses with tighter tube tops or interesting necklines with bare shoulders are making the summer look pretty. Pair your summer dress with a pair of espadrilles to complete your fashionable look.

Remember to keep your arms and shoulders ready for the bare look by exfoliating regularly to remove old skin and then applying lotion every day. If you want a healthy glow use one of the self tanning lotions available. Always remember to use a lotion that contains at least a little bit of sunscreen every day. You might be showing skin, but you donít want it burning or getting sun spots when youíre older.


You might be wearing a scarf with your winter coat now, but youíll be trading it in for a whole new scarf look this summer. Light weight scarves look great as headbands. Donít be afraid to pair a patterned scarf with your patterned shorts or dress. So long as the scarves compliment each other, youíre good to go. Avoid matching your printed scarf to your other prints since youíll look a bit too coordinated to be loose and casual.

Clutch Bags

Grab a canvas clutch bag in, what else, a great print! Or if youíd rather have your hands free, you can use a canvas tote bag in the same kinds of print to get the easy going, youthful summer look along with extra space to carry your beach gear or at least your iPod.

Chunky Jewelry

Finally, when itís time to throw on a few accessories, go for the minimum, but go with emphasis. Summer is about being light and airy, so pair two chunky bracelets with your lightweight summer dress, or throw on a fun ring with your shorts and shirt. Avoid wearing more than one or possible two coordinated pieces of jewelry at a time. Pick something that makes a statement and keep it simple.

I think I've seen the short with a plaid pattern or whatever. But Why would you wear any of this stuff if EVERYONE is already wearing it??We'd all look the same.

I especially hate cluth bags. They're very... UN-practical.
