Clothing

As many a woman can attest to, as the temperature gets higher, the clothing gets shorter. But this is often times not what many women want out of an outfit. Yes, we want to be cool, but less clothing doesn’t always equal cooler.

Rompers will seemingly always be the quintessential summer staple – with their cool fabrics and breezy structure, rompers are perfect for brunch or a day out on the beach.

As the Beatles once said, “here comes the sun!” Summer is kicking into high gear this year making it all the more easy to throw away those jeans and sweatpants and jump into the water in a brand new suit!

2018 has already been an odd year for fashion, as many of the new trends we are seeing are actually revamps from years previous. The same goes for swimsuits! This summer, many women will be casting aside modern geometric designs for 80’s cut high-waisted bikinis and the one shoulder one piece.
