Summer Fashions for Women

Updated on April 16, 2015

Women's Summer Clothes in Cool, Breezy Island Styles

It's time to start thinking about peeling away those layers of winter clothing and enjoy the summer time in style! What will you be wearing for that upcoming warm weather getaway, beach vacation, or just in general this summer? Let me help you decide. Find out what women's fashions and fashion accessories you might want to consider adding to your wardrobe this year. The latest styles in trendy women's swimwear (you will be amazed), breezy summer tops, shorts, sundresses, flip flops, and women's summer jewelry is featured here. Its time to vamp up your wardrobe for the warm weather and that well deserved summer vacation girls, finally! These cool, breezy island styles are warm weather essentials that you simply can't miss out on.

Trendy Women's Swimwear - Rock These Looks at the Beach!

Swimwear for Women

What's hot in trendy women's swimwear for 2015? Well, the rashguard swimsuit (shown above) is something smashing to wear to the beach that adds a little more coverage. Don't skip the stripes. Ideal for the surfer girl; you can definitely makes waves in the water wearing this little number (even if you don't surf!). This swimsuit creates the wow factor, for sure and is being shown in all the top fashion magazines.

Killer bikinis are flaunting animal prints, beaded embellishments, tribal influences, and still popular from last year the retro vibe. Stunning new features include wrap styles, keyhole details, tankini style swim tops, and thong to Brazilian style swim bottoms. If your one that tends to shy away from the thong bikini, don't. Sports Illustrated featured the most amazing mermaid bikini swimsuit with the Brazilian style bottom that doesn't actually look trashy. The top and bottom are both feature scalloped details at the bust and rear and will have you looking like a goddess of the sea.

If your a one-piece swimsuit kinda girl, you are in for a treat this year. New looks include retro styled swimsuits that are especially attractive with high necklines, macrame and lazer-cut detailing, netting, lots of zippers, and monokinis that will simply take his breath away!

Women's Swimsuits

It's always fun shopping for swimsuits and picking out your unique style in flattering bikinis or one-piece swimsuits. It's highly recommended and always best to have at least 3 new swimsuits each season, especially if your going away on vacation. More if possible. This year the styles are so amazing it will be hard to limit your choices to only 3. From exotic-styled monokinis to the most rockin' styled tankinis, here is a little bit of help for you with this year's best beach looks.

Women's Sunhat

Sunhats for Women

I personally always wear a hat when I'm outdoors, especially when I'm at the beach. I mean why should you ruin a beautiful sunny day at the pool or beach with a bad case of sunburn, right? Of course, sun protection at any age is essential in today's world and I'm sure to always wear sunscreen and sunglasses, too. It just makes sense.

Straw hats and beach bags are always a smart investment, as they never ever seem to go out of style. Styles vary according to your personal preference in summer hats. There's the big floppy hat (my favorite), bucket hat, ball cap, visor, or roller hat, any of which will do the trick all while keeping the hot sun off your head.

Bring on your inner Diva and wear a women's sun hat with sass and confidence this summer! Get sun protection from the evil aging UVA and UVB rays while your outdoors. Your skin and hair will thank you for it and you'll look ever so chic. You can pick this one up on Amazon.

Womens Summer Hats

Bring on the sunshine and keep stylish wearing the most highly reputable sunhat brand called Physician Endorsed. These hats seem to last forever, no matter how often you wear them. The styles will keep you in vogue and the quality is of the very finest.

Pretty Summer Looks - Light and Breezy Dresses

Summer Dresses

Beach fashions for women include sundresses that are perfect for your any party, resort, vacation or cruise. The high low dress is perfect for showing off those tanned legs, you can dress it up with some jewelry and wear it out in the evening. The cotton sundress is so summery looking, choose one with embroidered accents. Of course, the maxi dress style is still really popular this year and is so chic.

This pretty pink summer dress will make a perfect addition to your summer wardrobe and would make a great piece to take along on vacation. We love how light and breezy it is and the pintuck pleating detail. Made of a linen blend, this sleeveless maxi dress zips at the side and offers an A-line silhouette. Dress it up or down be it day or night by adding the appropriate jewelry and accessories. For evening wear, just toss on a lightweight cardigan, and you'll be stunning.

Of course, who wants to run to the dry cleaner in the summer, so even more good news, this sundress is machine washable. Get one at Chadwicks.

Women's Summer Tops

Add some summer flavor to your wardrobe by wearing tropical patterns, sunny yellows, and turquoise blues in your summer top selection. Halter tops, tank tops, sleeveless tops, or even short-sleeve women's tops, if chosen carefully can completely change your entire look. Just remember to never over-do it with patterns. If your wearing a patterned top, don't wear a patterned bottom. However, solid tops do go well with patterned bottoms.

Womens Summer Jewelry - Complete Your Look

Women's Summer Jewelry

Wearing women's summer jewelry is the best way to dress up any outfit whether its casual or dressy this season. This 2015 summer season women's jewelry is actually as hot as the weather! Accessorizing allows you to show your personal style and wear what you like. This season it's going to be all about layering your jewelry. Whether you want to layer with bracelets, necklaces, or rings any jewelry is okay. Pick up a few of your favorite pieces and wear them together. I've noticed a lot of women even wearing a few bracelets with their wristwatches!

If you want jewelry that is extra special to wear while on vacation or when you just want to add some sparkle to your look, crystal jewelry is the perfect choice. Seriously, anytime I wear crystal jewelry I always get compliments. Crystal sparkles in a way that simply draws the eye, you can't help to admire crystal jewelry on the wearer.

Feminine and modern, this pair of pierced crystal earrings sparkles in soft and summery blue tones. The dangling Aquamarine crystal in an exclusive cut glitters like the blue ocean waters. Complete your summer look with the matching pendant.

Women's Shorts - Trendy Summer Shorts for Women

Shorts for Women

Anything basically goes in women's shorts this summer. Short shorts, sailor shorts, biker shorts, camo shorts, destroyed denim, or boyfriend shorts will be flaunted this season. Show as much or as little as you want!

Shorts swimsuit cover ups are ideal for the sporty girl on the go. These women's shorts have a style that is casual, chic, and ultra comfortable. You'll love the way these shorts won't bog you down while you're running your errands or lugging your umbrella out in the sand and they're perfect for those warm days in the sun.

Women's Flip Flops - Summer Footwear for Women

Flip Flops and Sandals

In my opinion, no summer wardrobe is complete without it including at least a few pairs of flip flops and have fun in the sun with the warm weather shoe of choice, flip-flops or women's sandals. Sandals come in many shapes and forms, but are always strappy and more revealing than most shoe styles. Sandal heights range from flat to sky-high and are best paired with summery dresses and a care-free attitude! Shop for the latest trends in brand name beach sandals, flip-flops, and casual footwear online like everyone else.

      I don't know, I'm letting my hair grow longer, got a second set of piercings for my ears. So as they get all healed I look at great earrings that are Fair Trade that I can wear at a complete set. I do like to wear my hems long though, they feel nice on my feet when I walk with sandals. I just lift a bit for stairs so i don't wipe out :D. I love jewelry but its tough when its been so humid and hot out. I also learned the hard way that cotton/silk doesn't breathe nearly enough for the heat. Cotton, love me some cotton :D.

      Summer fashion clothes are the base of your beauty which you try to get. Sometimes you lose your beauty when you don't care for those factors which play an important role to give you an attractive look. The reason is that fashion looks beautiful according to seasons.
