One of them most important things that I keep in mind when shopping for
my boutique is first and foremost whether I would personally wear a trend or not.
I take into account the newest trends as seen on the runways & in my favorite
fashion mags- and finally I think- will I be able to wear this piece for years to
come? That last question is especially relevant right now, as we most likely won’t
be attending as many events, or even going out in public as much this Summer due to COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean we can’t shop! Here is our SS2020 roundup. They can ALL be mixed and matched together, so that you can take your buys the into
Exotic Floral: While floral aren’t anything new, you can add a punch to your new maxi dresses with frilly ruffles or cutouts. This will update the basic maxi dress we’ve all seen before. Palm prints and exotic flowers replace the muted rose florals of Fall. white chunky sneakers.
Ice Cream hues: This is a creamier take on “pastels”. I’m seeing a lot of pistachio green, orange creamsicle, and muted strawberry hues. An easy way to wear the trend is to mix and match these hues with your favorite pair of light wash jeans and

70's Vibes: When I think of the 70’s it always takes me to a California girl at Summer time. We
are seeing wider leg jeans, in more dense fabrics. Structural fits too. My favorite buy this
season were these AGOLDE Criss Cross Upsized Jeans. (agolde.com). Pull out your vintage pairs too if you have them! To update this relaxed silhouette I’d pair a tighter top with your
denim. Bonus points if you have a striped tank or crop top.
Minimalist with a twist: Minimalism will never go out of style. Pair your muted tones like sand, creamy beige and white with your denim that you already own. You can spice this up by keeping most of your
look muted, and adding one POP of color, like a fiery red bodysuit, or an all beige look with a spicy pair of heels (@aminamuaddi - shoe designer mixes the 70’s trend with minimalist style, then adds a pop of color with her yellow heels). What’s most important is making sure a
trend works for YOU. If you feel silly in it, then it’s not for you. Confidence never goes out of
style. If you find a trend or piece that you LOVE, stick with it- do you boo! Develop your own signature style and add in the trendier pieces here and there. Remember- you wear the clothes, they don’t wear you.
