Austin Summer Heat Wave with Color

by Miss Venus

Experience the summer heat wave in Austin with the latest color trends in breathable, lightweight styles. Mixed prints, bold statement jewelry, palazzo pants and fringe details are here to stay from now until festival season is upon us again for Austin City Limits Festival.

This season is all about edgy street style with boho flair. Grab your essentials here at SoLa for styling versatility and transform these staples into your favorite concert threads. Adding rainbow color pops creates dimension and when you mix prints, this on-trend style will be sure to turn heads.

Crop tops and graphic tees are perfect to express yourself in a stylish format. Mix and match these with a boho print maxi skirt, but don’t forget layering with playful colors from your wardrobe. Pairing a colorful top with a neutral bottom or neutral top with a colorful bottom draws attention to the little or big details in your jewelry of choice.

Beads, stones, chunky metallic and layered mixed material necklaces can dress up these styled outfits from day to night. The motto for jewelry is “the more, the better” so grab a gold cuff, lace-up bracelet, tassel necklace and at least two rings.

It’s hot outside, but this doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style and comfort. Lace-up style pants, as well as overalls, look edgy with a printed crop top. If you’re in and out of air conditioning, slip on metallics like this coveted moto jacket style to layer perfectly with your mixed prints.

The tropical print wide leg palazzo pants will keep you cool and confident. Styling a body suit or crop top with it will kick up the edge factor. Wedges are a wonderful complement to lengthening your legs and add height to your look.
