So unless you’ve been living under a rock all summer you know that gingham is H-O-T right now and a must wear trend. This is easy to do as the adorable gingham print can pretty much be found at any boutique or department store. From large to small scale and shades of blues, reds, and pinks being the most popular – this trend is perfect for summer and I think it will be just as wearable and popular as we make our way into fall!

One of the hottest trends this season is embroidery. It can be found on jackets, blouses, denim, shoes, and purses. Personally I was a bit skeptical about this trend when I first started to see it on the runway a couple years ago but I do have to admit the trend has grown on me since and I find it perfect for the hot summer season and really even as we make our way into fall.
