  1. Hot Hats

Nothing says glamour like an oversized statement hat. Although I rarely go to the beach, I love donning large hats in the summer. They just add that extra dose of vintage glamour that elevates everything from shorts to a simple black dress. Think Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

For this look, I paired my strapless one - piece bathing suit from Victoria's Secret with these flowy palazzo pants that are for sale in our shop.

Then I added wooden accessories such as this half - moon clutch from Misguided. The Cult Gaia dupe adds texture and contrast to the look for a fraction of the cost.

I love the easy, breezy flow of this ensemble and the layered textures add depth.

2. Maximum Heights

Maxi skirts are flattering on most figures, including petite women, which is why I love them.

I stand slightly taller than five feet so a floor length skirt or dress could easily dwarf my petite frame. The trick is to wear heels or wear a fitted top to balance the silhouette.

The beautiful thing about maxi skirts is the versatility. You can style them with sneakers or heels to change the occasion.

You can even pair them with a halter or one - piece bathing suit to create a beachy summer look, ready for off - shore activities.

3. Fit to be Tied

Your natural waist is typically the smallest part of your body, so I try to cinch it in whenever possible to create that much coveted hour - glass silhouette.

The paper - bag waist pant is flattering on most body types. It emphasizes the natural curve of the waist line while hiding any problem areas in your mid - section.

Did I mention, that these pants are also linen, which is one of my favorite fabrics for summer?

Linen breathes so well in hot humid weather and typically comes in neutral colors, making it an easy add to any wardrobe.

I love wearing linen pieces, especially in the late summer months of August and September. It serves as the perfect neutral back drop to the bright sunset tones I typically like to wear around this time of year.

4. Cover It Up

Another fun look for daytime wear is to add a layer to your bathing suit. I tend to opt for a brightly - hued cover - up or wrap dress, especially if the suit is in a neutral color.

You can also pair it with a fun kimono is a vibrant print.

5. Palazzo Parade

I love a breezy, flowy palazzo pant in the summer. It's the perfect way to outfit a sexy strut without sacrificing comfort. I usually don't wear sweats in the summer because it's simply too hot. But palazzo pants typically come with a drawstring waist, making them the perfect summer substitute.

It's elevated loungewear at its finest.

The flowy structure also balances the silhouette, making the look appear much more chic than sweats.
