Jillian Harris 5 August Style Tips

Can you believe August 1st is TOMORROW? Summer is flying by (someone make it slow down, will ya?!) BUT what better way to celebrate a new month than with some fresh new style tips?! This year has been one of my favourite years for summer style, I love everything that is on trend right now!! Including some items that I didn’t mention below like peplum tops … I was just saying to the girls the other day that whenever the peplum trend is over that half of my wardrobe will be gone!! LOL!!

Alright, let’s get to the goods, shall we?? …

Summer Stripes: I looooove stripes, I know some people don’t like them but I’m a huge fan! Stripes remind me of summer because of their nautical vibe!

Gingham Goals: Yup, gingham is STILL in ladies! And how could it not be? It’s so damn cute!! My gingham items are slowly increasing in my closet! I think this trend will be sticking around for a few more months, we will just see a shift in the colour schemes!

Straw Hats and Bags: Straw hats and bags scream summer!! You can dress up or down a cute straw hat, wear it to the beach, picking cherries or wine touring with your gals! And the straw bag is just an obvious summer necessity … where else are you going to store your beach towel, sunglasses, freshly picked cherries and bottles of wine?? Yup … I said bottles … no, that wasn’t a typo. LOL.

Overalls: Yup. I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again! Overalls have most definitely been my summer staple this year, I hopped on the bandwagon as soon as I found the perfect pair from Forever21 and haven’t looked back since. Now I own overall shorts, dresses and a few pair of long overalls. These babies are heading into fall with me as well!

Ps. The BEST thing to paid overalls with are bodysuit! You’ll know allllll about this if you read my previous blog on overalls, if you missed it, click here!

White Everything: White is the color of summer. From white jeans in the cool evenings to white shorts, white eyelet tops to white dresses! Summer isn’t summer without a cute white dress!! A white dress is a STAPLE … you’d be surprised how much you will wear it once you find the perfect one … and your summer tan will POP in it!

    Love love your style. Thanks to you wearing overalls lately I decided to try out finally the pair I bought a month ago today. I thought at first I didn’t like them. But you made them look so cute and fun. And I sare say i felt cute and adoble wearing them. 1st thing my co worker said when she saw me today was oh cute over alls. They actually perked me up today 🙂

    Thanks for being a great role model for femalsz. Over all, fashion and interior design!

  • Love all of these ideas! I definitely want to jump on the overalls trend.
    Unfortunately the sandals you’ve posted a lot about are no longer available at Joe Fresh, which I’m so bummed about because I was ready to scoop up a pair. Do you know of any alternates or similar styles available for Canadian shoppers elsewhere?
