Summer-Only Style

In today's style file, summer-only style! There are certain accessories, colors, and fabrics that only come out during this season - things that are uniquely summer! Studio 5 Fashion Contributor Heidi Allen has spotted 6 summer staples with this season's trendy twist.

Easy Espadrilles
This summer shoe comes in all different styles, so it shouldn't be hard for you to find a pair you absolutely love. From flats to wedges, you can recognize an espadrille by the signature soles that are decorated in woven rope. The top of the shoe is normally made from lightweight materials such as cotton and linen. Pick a fun pattern and the espadrilles will be sure to compliment your ensemble.

Classy Seersucker
This fabric screams summertime. The hot weather is easily managed when wearing this thin, puckered, all cotton fabric - commonly identified with thin stripes or checkers. The seersucker fabric was made for a light, airy feel, and is worn only in warmer months. Look for this style in suits, skirts and sun dresses. Seersucker is clean, classy and has a little bit of the east coast charm.

Bermuda Shorts
It's time to pull out the shorts from the back of your closet and sport them with a summer top and fun pair of sandals. And keep in mind that the trend of colored jeans and printed pants isn't stopping with shorts. If you are in need of a new pair, look for a print or a bold color. Make your outfit pop with something fun and unexpected.

Bright Whites
Wearing white shoes, white pants and white skirts in the spring and summer months, ending with Labor Day, is a common fashion rule you might be familiar with. And now that it's summer don't be afraid to dust off those bright whites and add them to any outfit! When buying something white, be aware of the pants and skirts that can sometimes be too transparent.

Sun Hats
Have some fun in the sun with a floppy or brimmed, flirty hat. These great hats provide a way for you to protect your face with something feminine and chic, not just a handful of white suntan lotion. Make a statement with a big floppy hat, or just add a woven cloche or fedora as an accessory to a summery outfit.

Nautical Flair
You don't have to join a yacht club or an exclusive cruise to sport this fun summer fashion. You can still feel like you are about to sail away when you add the patriotic colors to your outfit. Think navy and red stripes, gold buttons, and rope. You can play up this summer trend with a complete outfit, simple accessory or pair of shoes.
