3 fun and trendy styles this Summer

Hi, I’m Cambria from Jupe, a little style blog based in Minnesota! 

If you’ve been on style alert this season, I’m sure bright and bold patterns have been right up there on your radar.  Whether it’s abstract splashes of colour, giant florals, strong stripes, or retro geometrics, it seems that fashion has dictated the bigger, the bolder, the better.  While patterns can be daunting, there are many great ways to incorporate them into your summer wardrobe–and it’s the perfect time to step of your comfort zone and try something fun and new.  To get you started, here is my take on three pattern trends and how to incorporate them into your daily wear!

Scarf & Top:

The picture at the top is an example of a fun pattern that probably uses pieces you have in your wardrobe already…a simple top and scarf. When choosing which scarf and top to pair, keep in mind that there should be a basic matching colour scheme in the two patterns.  As a general rule, don’t mix two large patterns or two patterns from the same family (i.e., plaid with plaid) or two patterns from totally different families (i.e. a safari print with a cat print). This will keep you from looking too busy and from clashing prints.  If you want a good place to start, wear a striped scarf with a polka dot or animal print shirt.

Floral Pants:
For the most flattering look, pick a darker pair in a cut that hits just at the ankle bone.  Try pairing them with a plain, simple sweater or button down shirt to start out…then try experimenting with a denim jacket for juniors or a bright coloured chiffon blouse.
Black & White Dress:
Go for the gold…choose to make the most of a pattern by picking a black and white and pairing it with a piece of vintage gold jewelry to give it class and femininity.  If you’re a pattern newbie and the print seems overwhelming, top it with a black or white jacket or cardigan in a vintage cut tone it down with a little added sophistication.  Jackie O, anyone?
