    It’s important to have a signature look, but if you’re searching for a quick update, we have just the fix. Explore a new dress style—if you wear a lot of shift dresses, try a drop-waist style this weekend!

    We love how Gala Gonzalez of Amlul kept her accessorizing to a minimum by not wearing any jewelry, keeping the focus on her statement-making gold belt.

    4. Focus on your back.

    If you’re looking to add a bit of charm to your next look, we suggest investing in a top that has an interesting back detail, like a sheer fabric or a low-cut hemline.

    Overalls aren’t typically considered sexy, but if you pair them with the right items, you just might think again. Key items: a super sexy lacy bralette, oversized sleeveless tank, and dainty gold necklaces.

    Not everyone can pull off that breezy bohemian or super girly look 24/7 so take it easy and test out a new vibe for a day or two. It can be as easy as layering a fringe jacket over your look or adding a dash of pink lipstick before you walk out the door.

    8. Wear more white.

    The clean and crisp staple color stimulates a sense of ease and freshness. To really update your style, try a head-to-toe white look.

    If there’s one trend you definitely have to try this summer, it’s a plunging neckline. It’s the easiest way to pull off a sexy look and still look like a lady. Don’t forget to add loads of dainty necklaces for a subtle décollage distraction.
