I've always had a fascination with big floppy hats and sundresses. I love a classic preppy look in the summertime. It's girly, fresh, and fun. I reach for bright punchy prints, but to really pull off the look, you have to strike the right balance between ultra feminine fabrics and sophisticated details. Check out these must-have tips below for getting the style just right.
5 Girly Must-Haves To Make You Instantly Cuter:
1- A flirty, soft shaped dress. Take this Pink Slate Boutique dress for example, it's colorful, sweet and perfectly prim. You can wear it with stackable bracelets or layer it up with a cardigan or moto jacket for the upcoming fall months.
2- Floaty Skirts. Cupcake skirts help to highlight your waist and give your body shape. Plus, the flowy fabric will scream, "Hello I'm super cute. Call me?"
3-Light washed skinny jeans. I love how effortless distressed denim looks when paired against a basic tee. The light wash goes perfectly with pastels and florals. The rips and tears add a little spice to the look. Need more inspiration? Visit Naty's blog, A Love Affair With Fashion.

4- A playful hat. Anytime I'm feeling bored or in the mood to change up my look, I throw on a fun hat.
5- A denim vest. I cannot stress how important a sleeveless denim vest is in the summertime. They complete almost any outfit. You can pair them with maxi dresses, crop tops, blouses, knits...etc. The styling options are endless. I personally adore this denim vest from Rue21.
