The official start of summer is next week! *cue praise break* What better way to welcome the warmer months than by ensuring you are ready to snatch edges by remaining on trend. I know, I know…. Trends can be fickle and overdone but I don't mind following a trend when it is timeless and done right. I am always on the hunt for timeless pieces. These are items that you can wear anytime because they are always relevant. Yet I love a cheap find that can keep me on trend without spending too much money. I like to mix my wardrobe with both so I am going to let you in on my favorite summer trends that are timeless and affordable!
1. Off the shoulder tops and dress are killing the game right now! You see them everywhere. This style can add the perfect amount of sexiness to your look without being over the top. I purchased a similar dress like the one below two years ago from www.asos.com. I never wore it because, let’s face it… I have been pregnant the last 3 years. My son is 2.5 and my daughter is 11 months. When it came time to celebrate my birthday I had this perfect little number to wear! Here are some fun ways to enjoy the off the shoulder trend!

2. Chunky heels for the win! Bruhhhhhh, I love a comfortable and sexy heel. I browse the internet to look at shoes that I can’t buy because… kids, bills, daycare, mortgage, car note, just life shit. So I am sharing a couple of my favorite finds!

3. High-waist wide leg pants are bae! I love the way they accentuate my waist and make it appears as though I am packing in the rear… I must have gotten in the forehead line twice and skipped the derrière line altogether. Damn, damn, damn… I digress. High-waist pants are the perfect combo of “I’m trying but I’m not.” Here are few cool options!

If you want to add other trends into the mix that may not lend themselves to other fashion seasons opt for more affordable items. This allows you to stay on trend while avoiding big ticket items that may not be “in” next season. Check out my style board below for high-waist pants inspiration - click here for outfit details.
