10 Summer Fashion Essentials! Curvy Style Guide for Summer!


Hey guys! It’s Sierra and today I’m gonna
be showing you my top ten summer fashion essentials. So, this video was actually
supposed to go out on Tuesday…but today is not Tuesday it’s Friday because your
girl actually had a little bit of a health scare. I was in the hospital on
Sunday and I’ve been recovering since then. But, today I’m actually feeling good
enough and I’m gonna film this video and then rush off to VidCon tomorrow. If you
want to see more about that you can go onto my vlog channel but I just wanted
to let you guys know because I don’t usually miss posting days, but I’m gonna
be back on schedule now with Tuesday and Friday videos. Now enough about me, let’s
get into these summer fashion essentials! The first thing, definitely a staple in
my wardrobe is an awesome pair of high-waisted denim shorts. Jean shorts
are just kind of like a summer essential and a high-waisted fit is perfect for a
curvy body shape. Whether you have a little bit more around the middle or
you’re a more petite curvy girl this will really emphasize that hourglass
figure and smooth your tummy. I did a whole video a few weeks ago about the
best denim shorts for a curvy body so if you guys want to find out which denim
shorts you should get you can click that card right up there for that video! In
the summer I’m always looking for ways that I can beat the heat and a chiffon
maxi dress is a great way to do that while still having a really cute outfit.
It’s hot, so lightweight maxi dresses will keep you cool and airy and chiffon
is an especially light fabric. In dresses like this that are more loose and flowy,
I always like to look for elastic in the waist so that it can still define my
curves. It’s an easy way to flatter a curvy figure and still get that
lightweight flowy look that a maxi dress will give you. Crop tops are definitely a
summer essential for me! I’ve done a whole video on how to choose flattering
crop tops for a curvy body shape, so I will link that in the description along
with all the other videos I’m mentioning here. But, spoiler alert from that video!
One of my favorites is a wrap style crop top. Wrap style crop tops are so
flattering on a curvy figure even if you have a little extra
around the middle like me. They also work great with high-waisted jeans shorts so
you can mix and match different shorts and wrap style crop tops to make really
cute summer outfits. Find a great pair of high-waisted pattern swim bottoms you
can mix and match with different tops. High-waisted bottoms are a great fit for
a curvy figure especially if you look for ruching or fabric gathers along the
middle. That’ll really smooth out your midsection and I feel like it’s harder
to find good fitting bottoms than good fitting tops. So, if you find that good
pair of pattern bottoms you can get a bunch of simple colored tops that you
can mix and match with those bottoms to create a variety of different swim looks.
Having a few lightweight rompers and jumpsuits are great for putting together
a really simple no effort outfit! It’s a really easy one piece look and I like to
go for looser fitting lightweight jump suits with a defined waist so that they
keep me nice and cool in the hot weather and also if you go for basic colored
rompers and jumpsuits you can mix and match them with different pattern
kimonos to create a variety of looks. Flowy shorts or soft shorts are a great
alternative to denim since denim shorts can be a little bit hot in the summer. If
you want something a little bit lighter and cooler and loose-fitting
try some flowy shorts. I like to go for patterned flowy shorts so that those can
be more of a statement piece of the outfit and I can mix and match them with
different basic colored tees. Having a few go t-shirt dresses in your wardrobe
is great because you can just throw them on and make a simple look when you don’t
really feel like putting together an outfit. Shirt dresses are really comfy and
perfect for summer but sometimes they can be a little bit shapeless so you can
always add a simple thin belt at the waist to find your figure if that’s
something you’re worried about. You guys know I am a huge fan of kimonos! Kimonos
are a great way to add a pop of color to your outfit and add a little extra
coverage without adding extra layers. If you were to try to cover up some
spaghetti straps with a sweater or a cardigan in the summer it would just be
way too hot. But, kimonos are light and airy and don’t have a lot of fabric to
them and not only do kimonos add that extra coverage but they’re actually really
useful for when you’re walking out in the sun all day because they’ll give you
some extra coverage from the sun and prevent getting a sunburn all over your
shoulders. I like to buy patterned kimonos so that I can layer them with more basic
dresses rompers jumpsuits and tees and shorts combos. In the summer, I like to
get one go-to pair of brown strappy sandals that I can wear with pretty much
any outfit. These ones are from JustFab. They’re just a really simple flat
comfortable brown sandal. They’re way more dressy than my ratty old flip-flops,
so I can wear them with a jumpsuit or a maxi dress but they still are casual
enough to work with my jean shorts and t-shirts. They’re super super versatile!
Simple tops like tees, tanks or crop tops are great for layering with different
pattern kimonos or just pairing with some jean shorts. This makes creating
really simple summer outfits a lot easier if you have a few go-to basic
shirts in your wardrobe that you know you like and you know you feel good in.
My favorite basic tees are from Madewell and Express. I will link both of
those in the description but these are great for layering and just for casual
everyday summer looks. Thanks so much for watching! I hope you guys enjoyed this
