Head

What better way to protect your sun kissed face from turning into that over ripe look than a straw fedora? Combining function and flair, this hat can recast a vintage look into your own personal summer statement.

Out
Itís time to say goodbye to oversized sunglasses and say hello to your face. Butterfly shaped sunglasses are so 2009: trade in your bug shaped shades for some vibrant wayfarer sunglasses.

Light and breezy, rompers are a great alternative to the traditional summer dress. Colin Wiencek

One could not survive long days at the pool or beach without an eye-catching summer tote. As a bag that can hold several of your summertime essentials, such as sunscreen and magazines, this spacious chic carryall can add color, style and function to your warm weather look.

Out
Off the shoulder knit scoop neck shirts are neither trendy nor warm weather appropriate. Trade these in for a look that better compliments your physique.

Knees
In
For a look thatís comfortable, yet very fashion forward, try your luck with a romper. Available in different materials, prints, and colors, rompers can be easily dressed down for lazy pool lounging days, or dressed up for a nighttime barbeque with your friends.

Out
Pants should never look indecisive about their length. Whether they are meant to be short pants or long shorts, Capri pants need to be cut completely from your wardrobe.

Toes

Not only are jelly shoes fun to say but theyíre fun to wear, too. Available in a variety of colors, they create strong nostalgia of the carefree days in elementary school. Wearing these shoes, you can reconnect with your inner child and allow your feet to embrace a trend thatís quickly being brought back.

Out
Thereís no need to suffocate your little piggies any longer with uncomfortable toe rings, they do nothing but cause unnecessary blisters and funky tan lines. Your toes arenít meant for bling, so leave the rings for your fingers.
