6 Quick & Easy Tips To Seriously Up Your Summer Style

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% from Her Campus.

Ahh, summertime—it’s our favorite time of year, and for good reason. Whether you plan on hanging out poolside or interning this summer (or both), we have a few simple tips that will shake up your summer uniform. We partnered with Topshop and some of our fave style influencers to show you how to easily up your summer ante.

1. Invest in a few key trends

Lace-up sandals are hot this season, and they provide instant style to any of your summer outfits. We’re partial to these multicolored Topshop beauties. Paired with a simple neutral-toned outfit, these standout shoes majorly up the chic factor.

2. Wear your bathing suit as a top

There’s nothing we love more than a fashion piece with versatility—and so we’re big fans of how this style influencer made her crisp Topshop white one-piece work double duty as a day-time top. Choose a basic, solid-colored one-piece and pair with a skirt or jeans. Chic, effortless, easy.

3. Make your sunnies a focal point

If you don’t have a pair of fabulous sunglasses to rock this summer, now’s the time to stock up. We love these show-stopping Topshop metal cat-eye frames that are super luxe but very affordable. This one accessory looks just as good with a minimalist outfit as it does with something a little more statement.

4. Rock a straw hat

Straw hats are one of our favorite summer accessories—they’ll keep you cool on sweltering days and keep you looking chic no matter where you go. This casual, beachy Topshop sun hat looks great teamed with just about any summer outfit.

5. Don some very unique jewelry

We believe jewelry in all forms is always a good idea—but this summer, consider something more unique. Topshop has truly embraced the ‘90s trend with layered toe rings to add major style to casual sandals. The best part? They’re totally adjustable in size. Mix and match the stack or wear them separately to bring some nostalgic cool to your look.

6. Skin is in

This summer, don’t be afraid to show a little skin. Off-the-shoulder tops are having a moment, and this sexy-but-subtle Topshop version is one of our favorites. It’s a great alternative for those who shudder at the idea of mini skirts or short-shorts.
