Must Have Styles for Summer

Hey there, California girl. You’ve got a reputation to uphold this sunny season, one abreast of all the latest trends, is effortlessly stylish, and perfectly sassy. From shades to shoes- San Joaquin shops are in full support of our summer fashion forecast.

Sunglasses are basically the best part of summer, right? Designers brought fourth their best this season, honoring old favorites and fusing them with a little something new. As usual oversized, cat eye, and aviators ruled the runway, with cat and round combinations taking the cake. This beautiful union of styles offers a little something for everyone, showcasing the best of both worlds. Word on the street (or rather, runway) is this combo’s use of this summer’s “it color”-aqua blue- adorning the cat eye top teamed with dark, round lenses can’t get any hotter.


Step into the summer season right, and take note from 2016 fashion shows, where the message was clear: no high is too high, laces are lovely, and the platform, is once again perfection. Team these touches with big buckles, fringe, and metallic details, and you, my friend are good to go. Stop by FINA in Lincoln Center to capitalize on these trends. The high-end boutique is stocked with looks by Calleen Cordero and Dolce Vita that perfectly fit the summer style forecast. 240 Lincoln Ctr., Stockton

Tanks & Teesweb2
Smart-ass tanks and T’s are all the rage. Want to express your sarcastic self? We’ve got you, boo. And they’re comfy too. Whether you’re a wine, brunch, nap, or cupcake enthusiast, there is most likely a tank sporting a slogan that perfectly fits your mood. Don’t feel like talking to anyone until you have five cups of coffee? There’s a T for that, too. Stop by Theadora and let your top speak for you. 270 Lincoln Ctr., Stockton.

Fashion and function, can I get a hallelujah! There is nothing I love more. Are you sick of your cross-body bag getting in the way as you navigate through a crowd at a concert? Did you spill red wine on your precious tote? Did you leave your clutch at the bar? Backpacks aren’t for kids anymore, and high-end designers have taken notice, offering tons of compact, cute styles for every summer outing. Look ma, no hands!

Jewelry & Watches
Stackable rings, whimsical designs, chokers, and ethically sourced materials are all the rage this summer. Designers are continuing to opt for recycled materials and ethically obtained stones to honor fair mined and fair trade standards. These choices can be found in most “it” styles this summer, as stackable rings offer diversity and uniqueness in shape and stone (check out Danz Jewelers sick selection), while whimsical designs capitalize on recycled products and chokers bring us back to the good ol’ 90s. Besides these rings, trendy and unique watches for women are something that is known for taking the fashion industry by storm. While there can be different varieties of watches, which can be sourced from online stores like Pierre Richardson, most of them can be paired with any kind of dress and jewelry. Moreover, with the emergence of wearable technology (smartwatches), it could now be possible for fashion enthusiasts to get the best of both worlds (health and style).
