If you are like me and still trying to squeeze in some fun in the sun before the summer ends, then hurry! With little time left and whether or not we’ve been working on getting flat abs, it’s okay because the trend this summer is retro swimwear, which means high waist bathing suit bottoms! Lucky us, right?
Summer has gone retro! The high waist style is back, which is great for those who are curvy and it’s great for those who desire more of an hour glass shape.
Tip: A high waist bottom that has a pattern or some color blocking is great when you want to give the illusion of the hour glass shape. So retro swimwear this summer is a win-win situation!
Enjoy your fun in the sun with confidence ladies! Show off your rockin’ body while being on trend in retro swimwear.

Less is not more this summer, sheer garments are one of the biggest trends this summer. It is an instant hit from the runway to red-carpet. After Rhianna’s jaw dropping dress reveal, showing up in a completely sheer dress at the CFDA awards earlier this summer, was only right on trend. Many celebrities followed in the trend, just not as revealing.
The leg veil is like wearing a long and short dress at the same time. It has been a great, yet classy way to show a lot of leg. From lace to embellishment, sheer fabric is what will keep the heads turning this summer.
So if you are feeling daring ladies and don’t mind showing off those lovely legs of yours, try wearing something sheer this summer! Tip: When wearing a leg veil, it is good to pair it with a less revealing top.

Wearing a plain white t-shirt is overwhelmingly apparent with possibilities for an amazing outfit. Yeah, that’s right – a plain white t-shirt has some serious potential. Of course, putting on your white t-shirt is a little scary at first. While there are many possibilities to have a rocking outfit, you can also do so much wrong with a white t-shirt – like spill coffee on it. Is it just me or do you all manage to spill something on your white shirts no matter what? Either way – sometimes you have to just go for it, and hope for the best. Here are some ways for you to style your plain white t-shirt’s!
1. Statement Necklace
A statement necklace is a great way for outfits to be one and done. What that means is you simply just put on a necklace – and you’re good to go. Statement necklace’s are huge trends this season, and a must have for every fashionista’s wardrobe. You can get them in every color – literally, every color. How can you not? It’s also easy on the go, as mentioned before, and perfect for any stylish working lady or just any lady on the go. They aren’t too expensive and can be found in virtually every clothing store so it’s accessible for all, and super cute. A perfect way to spice up your plain white t-shirts!
2. Bold Bottoms
Probably the newest, and most fun way to spice up your wardrobe – bold bottoms. Whether it’s colored denim or flowy fun bottoms; it’s amazing. They offer more attention to your lower half, if that’s what you’re into. Also, they allow you to be comfortable if you go for the flowy route. Of course, colored denim is always a wonderful option too, but really – jeans aren’t anyone’s favorite. Of course, fun leggings that are patterned are always a plus because you can wear leggings and look up to date in your fashion sense. Perfection. Bold bottoms are a great way to go if you’re trying to wear up your plain white t-shirts!
3. Headband Heaven
A super easy way – and convenient for bad hair days – to add some color to your t-shirts are fun headbands. They keep your hair out of your face, and also allow you to rock your comfy white t-shirts. Keep your hair out of my face and be in a comfy shirt? Umm, sign me up, please! It’s also a really affordable option to add some color to your outfits. Jeans, a white shirt, a fun headband, and some funky sandals – you look like a fashionista in a matter of minutes. Amazing solution for your plain white tee’s!
The best thing about white shirts is everything goes with them. Even white on white outfits can be on point sometimes. Also – they can be found pretty cheap, so you don’t need to break the bank while creating some great outfits. You can spend more money on accessories and bottoms than shirts.

Kimonos are traditionally seen in Asian culture – mainly in Japan and China. However fashion has adapted the kimono into something totally wearable for everyday. Kimonos are amazing and a great staple piece for your wardrobe. I highly recommend this wonderful piece of garment. You can wear them all seasons too – Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring. They are always doable. Stores like Forever 21, CharlotteRusse, and Marshalls are carrying these fashion pieces nowadays – don’t miss out. Here are some great ways to rock a kimono this Summer.
1. At The Beach
Not only is it an amazing piece to add to your wardrobe – you also can wear it as a cover up at the beach. Different and definitely more fashionable then your Dad’s pick t-shirt you held hostage to wear as a coverup at the beach. It’s lightweight, easy to pack, and you look cute. Add a flower headband and you literally could be at Coachella.
2. Day Time Attire
A kimono can add some color and flair to your jean shorts and white tank look. It adds a different take on your style then say, a statement necklace might do. It’s a way to add color to a seemingly boring outfit, without being sweltering hot in the Summer. It’s perfect for those days you’re running late and still need to look presentable.
3. Night Time Getup
Black on black outfit with a pop of color in the kimono for a night time out with your girls is perfection. You will be comfortable – which is key – and also look fashionable, which is also key. It’s lightweight, as mentioned before. That’s a big plus because it allows you to rock it in a bar or a club without being too hot, having to take it off, and ultimately loosing it. We’ve all lost a sweater or two while out, right? Just me? Okay. Either way – the kimono is a perfect outfit choice for nights out.
The kimono is a new style and something I can see lasting for many years to come. It’s easy to wear, and makes for a different look than you may normally go for. What do you think? Would you rock a kimono? If so, how? Let us at Luevo know in the comments below!

The saying goes, April showers bring May flowers. As the days get warmer, get ready to start seeing more florals. While there is nothing new about the feminine trend, the style was serious on the runway and got a major update for the new season. The trend was seen on almost every runway and has been transformed into red carpet looks. Look around and you will find florals on everything from shoes to blazers. Florals make anything look chic, feminine, and fabulous.
Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking. – Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada
This response will live on, but will continue to be proven wrong time and time again. It’s time to start embracing florals, seeing as the trend is showing no signs of going anywhere. Print dresses, shoes, swimwear, and even accessories. There’s an endless selection of ways to rock this trend.
What’s a better way to say goodbye to the dark spring days than stepping into bright floral outfits? If you’re the type to not usually wear florals, ease into the trend. Start by carrying a floral clutch or opt for a pair of floral shoes, if you’re daring. Like the flowers around you, slowly blossom into the trend. Before you know it, you’ll be embracing the floral trend with all the items you already have in your closet.
To make florals look modern and chic, pair simple outfits with an eye catching floral pieces. The bold floral colours will pop when paired with a simple white or neutral item and some candy-coloured accessories. To avoid looking too over done, limit your accessories.
You almost can’t go wrong when it comes to embracing this trend. Floral dresses scream summer and warm weather. They’re feminine and can be dressed up and made edgy. Pair it with neutral jewelry and shoes. The dress will speak for itself and get all the attention.
Floral dresses give off a fun summer vibe and can be worn anywhere and for just about any occasion. Not sure about buying that floral dress and want to stick to a mainly casual and simple look? A floral jacket or blazer will instantly transform basic white blouse and skirt combo into a stylish look.
Don’t go for the head-to-toe floral look. All those basic wardrobe essentials you already own (classic white shirt) can be worn with florals. Pair a floral top with a pair of white pants and a basic bag. All the attention will be on your top. For a more formal look (for work) a white blouse and standard purse will tone down the bold colours of a floral skirt. When in doubt, neutrals will always be safest.
Enjoy and embrace the floral trend for spring and summer. It’s all about having fun with fashion. This is probably why the floral trend is one that is here to stay.
