If you can only afford to add one new dress to your wardrobe this summer, make it a ruffled one. Whether you choose a dress with a ruffled neckline (like the one from Nordstrom picture here), a ruffled hem or allover ruffles, that’s up to you. One of the most popular looks is a dress with an asymmetrical row of ruffles down the front.

Nude Hues
From shoes to handbags, nude hues are a hit this season. Off-white, cream and other nude shades are extremely flattering. Check out these nude sandals. Partner them with a nude leather tote or straw handbag.

Jeweled Sandals
Dress up your feet in jeweled flat sandals. Certainly gladiator sandals are hot once again. But if you are over that trend, look for flat thong sandals that are accented with crystals, jewels and other glitzy accents.

Bright Bags
Yes, I know I just said nude colors were in, but so are brights. From lemon yellow to bright fuchsia, look for satchel, totes and clutches in bold colors. Bright patent leather bags with a little bit of texture are on trend. Look for croc-embossed bags in brilliant shades.

Distressed Jeans
Jeans that are worn in all the right places are hot right now. From skinny capris to relaxed boyfriend jeans, shop for distressed denim. A new pair of jeans that looks like you have been wearing them for years is the perfect choice.

Geometric Prints
Floral prints are always hot for summer. This season however, geometric prints are in too. From black and white tops to colorful dresses, look for geometric patterns and abstract watercolor prints. When wearing a busy print, keep your accessories and jewelry to a minimum to keep the focus on your apparel.
