The sunny hot days are already here and we are all planning our summer gettaways. No summer talk is ever complete without a fashion close up. What to buy? What to wear? What do you need most and less?
A fashion Close Up At 2011 Summer Must Haves & How Celebrities Wear Them. I have put together a few pieces that can be mix and matched into amazing day or evening outfits. With the right accessories, colors and attitude you will rock a stylish, glamed up or laied back look this summer. Just like celebs on vacation or in everyday life! Here are the basic pieces any woman needs to have in her 2011 summer wardrobe.
A ruffle dress in any color paired with flat sandals or flip flops can look beautiful at the beach or during the day in the city. Don’t forget sunglasses, a scarf and a bag (handbag, messenger bag, tote bag, whatever you like). You can take the dress out for dinner too and pair it with high heel sandals and a small handbag or clutch. For cool evenings or nights add a blazer, jacket or cardigan.
Check out Jessica Alba‘s day time look. Simple and comfortable. Take away the jacket, throw on a swimsuit, switch the sandals with flip flops, and you are ready for the beach. Rihanna pairs her short flowery dress with heels and jewelry for a night out, but she could easily wear this dress during the day or at the beach.
A maxi dressis a total must have this season. Paired with flats or high heels, for day or night, for beach or city, it is the look to have. No matter if you choose a coloured maxi dress or a monochromatic one, maxi dresses are easy to wear, extremely fashionable and make us all look so sexy and feminine. Don’t forget the sunglasses, the bag and the small blazer or jacket for cooler weather.
Jennifer Aniston and Nicole Richie look amazing in day time maxi dresses. Jennifer Lopez looks sexy and summer-ish all covered up in her maxi dress and Eva Longoria seems ready to run errands in her sexy monochromatic maxi dress.
No summer is complete without the shorts. I prefer nude colors for summer because they look so good on sun-kissed skin and can be easily matched. The shorts are perfect with anything and everything: tank tops in stripes (a season must have) blouses, blazers, flip flops, flats, high heels, big bags, small messenger bags, scarves… you name it.
Kate Moss is rocking a total celebrity look: an uber short pair of white shorts, paired with a white blouse and lots of jewelry… at the beach. Jennifer Aniston looks so sexy and relaxed in her white shorts and brown T-shirt. A perfect colour combination. Kim Kardashian opts for the same color combination, but in high heels as she goes shopping looking very sexy. An outfit to rock on a summer night out. Remember the stripes? Well… Rachel Bilson is in love with… stripes tank tops as well, as she strolls the beach in shorts, with her boyfriend.
Jessica Alba and Kelly Rowland know that stripes are a season must have and look amazing wearing them.
The same thing goes for long or knee length trousers in nude colors. They are a must have this season and can be paired with absolutely everything.
Check out Jessica Alba’sall color coordinated outfit.
I also think a blouse is a must have, especially if you want to put together rich-sexy-laid back looking outfits.
Miley Cyrus chooses a stripes blouse and white shorts. To get a celebrity look pair them with heels! Love her look here!
Lindsey Lohan is all relaxed and sexy at the beach in her sheered cover up / blouse. Love her look and love her friend’s mismatched swimsuit!
Eva Longoria looks very casual and cute in her jeans and light blue blouse, paired with a blue bag and a scarf. And I love Kristin Cavallari‘ s simple outfit: white shorts with a navy blue blouse and a clutch.
Jessica Alba wears her white summer-ish blouse with a colorful scarf and a nude bag. Don’t forget the shades for that celebrity look!
For cooler summer days or nights throw on a blazer, a jacket or a cardigan, depending on your style or mood.
Kourtney Kardashian looks pretty good in denim shorts and a blouse paired with amazing flat sandals and a white blazer. A very chic outfit, just like Carrie Underwood‘s: denim shorts, stripes tank top and white cardigan.
Vanessa Hudgens looks very down to earth here in her stripes tank top and cardigan. And the list is not complete without the queen of blazers, Kim Kardashian, who glams up her clean simple outfit with a blazer.
And let’s not forget the swimsuits! Use your imagination and mix them. Mismatched swimsuits are such a must have in 2011 summer beach wear. Don’t be afraid and pick strong bold colours! And if you want to get the celebrity look throw on lots of jewelery… at the beach!
Kristin Cavallari is beautiful in a classic blue swimsuit and golden big round earrings. Rihanna seems to wear jewelry for everyone. She may not be going to the beach, but she knows that mismatchig different items is a celebrity must do: shades, loads of jewelry and a sweatshirt/dress paired with a tiny messenger bag.
Annalyne McCord puts the violet into yellow with this beach outfit.
Megan Fox mismatched blue and black swimsuit pieces and looks amazing. No surprise there, with her body! And Rihanna doesn’t ditch her love for jewelry and mismatches at the beach, looking fabulous on her vacation.
There you have it! Just a few new fashion items and so many possibilities and ways to look trendy, tasteful, young, beautiful and ready for summer. Pair them with existing pieces in your closet to get the look you want. Don’t forget those shades, cool bags and lots of jewelry for that celebrity look!
