It’s officially summer and that means there's no time like the present to refresh your wardrobe in a bold, new way.

The Two-Piece Co-Ord Suit
While we love a good fashion haul every now again, you don’t have to clean out the mall to look amazing this summer. Sometimes it pays to think strategically and choose a few key pieces that will compliment your personal style while capturing the spirit of the moment. That being said, a well-tailored, two-piece coordinating suit is a great place to start. Search for a matching set with a modest longline blazer included and pay attention to micro-trendy design elements, such as built-in belt bags or front leg slits that create a subtle flare. Come fall, transition seamlessly into cooler weather by layering your suit with a simple turtleneck or a sleek pair of boots.

Some things are better in small doses. While we love a pop of color, 80's inspired glowing highlighter hues have a tendency to take over if you wear them head-to-toe. Instead, reach for high-impact accessories, such as a soft clutch or strappy heel and pair it with at least one neutral to give your eyes a rest.
What do you get when you cross a kitten heel with a flip-flop? The newly hatched Kit-Flop is one of this summer's most in-demand styles and according to Harper's Bazaar, these adorable hybrids will dominate the shoe scene far beyond 2019.
Call them what you will, but "relaxed fit", "boxy" or unstructured blouses should definitely stay on your radar this summer. We love how they pull double duty giving you plenty of breathing room while leaving plenty of options for layering.
As if a fringed handbag wasn't dramatic enough, this season's boho-inspired clutches, crossbodies and bucket bags are feeling a little extra. Take advantage of this trend by choosing a bag that appeals to your overall sensibilities, but comes loaded with a lot of personality.
