Summer is officially here. And if you’re looking for outfit ideas for the sunny weather, then mission accomplished because today, it’s all about great-looking ensembles perfect for the season. Well, most of them, at least.
The best part about summer is that you can get creative with your scarf and wear it in so many other ways — not just for layering around the neck, but also as a halter top, as a cover-up, as an arm candy, as a head wrap, and even a hair tie.
Check out the 11 bloggers we’re featuring for the month of May 2014. Which of the ten outfits here are you likely to copy first?
1. Aneta M. from Poland
If the temp in your city still requires layering pieces, then do so with this girly but edgy ensemble from fashion blogger, Aneta. It takes the classic little red dress to a whole new level. Rock the frock with some black stockings and a leather jacket for a little bit of punk drama, then seal the deal with a plaid scarf in the same color combination. For more outfit ideas from this 22-year-old fashionista, check out her blog.
2. Lola C. from Spain
Here’s a refreshing way to wear pastels and neutrals this summer — a la fashion and beauty blogger, Lola of TE CEUNTO mis trucos. If you’re more into classic jean outfits with just the right hint of charm and sex appeal to them, then these two ensembles from Lola are it. We love how she added scarves to brighten up each attire. Do you like her outfits too?
3. Andreea B. from Romania
From the title alone, you can already tell that Andreaa loves shoes. But more than that is the fact that her blog, Thrill of the Heel, is filled with so many copy-worthy outfits. Just in case you’re in the mood to look “French”, here’s a nautical-inspired ensemble using key pieces such as a striped tee, some red chinos, and a printed red neckerchief. So Parisian chic, yes?!
4. Klara N. from Czech Republic
White and beige are just some of the hues perfect for summer. Here’s one outfit you can try using your classic trench and a pair of white denims, courtesy of fashion blogger, Klara Nekulova. To keep things interesting, decorate your hair with a silky extra that comes in a bright color. More outfit ideas from Klara over at her blog.
5. Naomi M from Canada
If you live up north, then chances are you’re still trying to beat the cold weather. Do it with style by trying this textured ensemble from Naomi of Sink To The Streets. We love how this artist, model, bartender, night owl, and tattoo lover dressed down her leopard-print frock with a utility jacket and an open-weave circle scarf. Doesn’t she look uber cool? Visit Naomi’s Lookbook for more inspiring looks like this one.
6. May A. from Luxembourg
Can’t figure out what to wear?
Then copy this outfit from May of Agua de Mayo. Wearing brights is a simple way to look fabulous in a snap. Kick it several notches up by pairing your bright shirt with a printed scarf that complements. To turn this outfit into a summer-appropriate attire, simply opt out on the dark tights and boots and switch to a pair of flats or flat strappy sandals.
7. Denisia A. from London, United Kingdom
Of the ten looks today, this outfit from Denisia of Polishing colors is our favorite. It’s casual, edgy, laid-back, feminine, and so many things all at once. Most notably, we love how she used the scarf as an arm accessory instead of the usual. It added the perfect amount of fancy to her style. Will you take a cue? We say why not?!
8. Angela D. from France
Here’s a unique way to style your scarf — like a crown over your head. It’s unusual and unexpected, yet Angela Donava managed it with flair. She paired the accessory with a classic dress and equally elegant heels. Now we just have to figure out how she was able to create the head piece.
Angela is a regular at Fashion Week events, and even walked the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. Visit her blog for more outfit ideas.
9. Sandra from Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Like we said before, a scarf can be very versatile. You can use it as a hair tie, as an arm candy, as a headband, as a cover-up, and even as a halter top that’s perfect for the beach.
Here’s Sandra of More Style Than Fashion doing exactly that with her bright red neck warmer. Doesn’t she look amazing? We can’t wait to take a cue. What about you?
10. Carmen N. from Romania
Want to do a striking print-on-print ensemble but don’t know where to start?
No worries. Just copy this outfit from Carmen Negoita. It’s fun, it’s fresh, and it’s a fantastic way to wear some of the season’s top stories. To achieve the turban, you can check out this guide put together by Carmen herself. For more outfit ideas, don’t forget to visit her blog.
11. Reut S. from Israel
Reut started her blog, Working Nine To Five, to inspire women to re-discover their closets and create chic outfits without going beyond the budget. Here, she gives us an idea on how you can infuse a casual twist to a classic little white dress with the help of a headscarf and a denim vest. Do you like the mix she put together? We do!
