Polyvore Hot For Summer

Polyvore is totally cool, it's a site where you can make collages of anything, there are pictures from everywhere, noticed tempalia's pictures on there, slap it all together and you've got your own unique collage. This is my very first one, I call it "hot for summer", these are popular looks that I've seen for spring/summer 2010. I haven't really focused on fashion in this blog, but you may be seeing more of it now.

Nearly Nude Tops: Anything nude, peach, skin coloured, particularly with some detailing like lace, ruffles and florals.

Nautical Chic -Breton Fisherman tops. Anything marine and sailor, striped, white, dark jean, inspired by the sea. Also those two toned dresses are everywhere too.

Boyfriend blazer - sort of warm for summer, but you can get lightweight ones in fabrics like silk and it can make for a cute jacket.

Rompers - Jumpsuits, playsuits, rompers, whatever you want to call them, I don't think I could pull this look off, but rompers are everywhere, it's basically like a one piece shirt plus shorts.

Those straw hats with the stripe - I don't know what these are called (boater hats?), but you know what I mean... everywhere. Someone tell me what the heck these are called.

Anything aqua/turquoise - jewel tones are always nice for summer, but primarily blue/aqua/turquoise looks so pretty on tanned skin. Also ice cream pastels like light greens (mint) and light purple are sweet. I like anything in these colour, especially nail polish. :D

Gladiator-type sandals - hot last summer and again this summer, dressier than flip flops, but still casual. I wearing metallic ones.

Bright vibrant nails - Orange, Fuchsia, Pink nails are all the rage and really stand out, nice for toes.

Wedge Sandals - If you want some height, wedges are always nice for summer, especially ones in skin colour, also those grey coloured heels look really hot. 

Wavey/Natural hair - straightening and curling is not summer friendly, let your hair breathe and do it's own thing, pretty waves are really cute for summer.

Coral/Peach Blush and Bronzer - great for summer, and for me, all year round, go for shades like Benefit Coralista, MAC Melba or Peaches, or a ton of others that all look like those. Tanning and burning and out, bronzer is in... sweep bronzer to get that glow instead.

White Watches - It started with the Chanel J12, but since that one is super expensive, people have found alternatives, like the Marc Jacobs pictured above. I want to get a watch like that.

What's your favourite summer trend or piece for this year?
