I Love To Wear CoralI have had a great week reunited with my little family of four. Naturally, shorts and t-shirts are common go-to clothing items for everyday style in the summer. Even with the t-shirt, you can make a few tweaks to take the typical summer uniform to the next level.

I Love Coral

Coral Is A Universal Color

Try finding t-shirts in vivid, eye-catching colors. I love to wear coral! Coral is known as a universal color, which means it works well regardless of your complexion or coloring. It can be worn in different intensities to complement different skin tones.

Do you remember “Flash Dance” style oversized tops from 80’s? This drapey top from Banana Republic could easily look, well…slouchy. To avoid the slouchy look, try tucking in the front of an over-sized shirt. This provides more definition at the front, but still allows the back of the shirt to flow free.

Now, add a few accent accessories and you have a polished, comfortable summer outfit.

I Love CoralI was very attracted to these sandals because they had an Asian print that closely resembled a Lao weaving.

I Love Coral - Asian inspired sandalsI Love CoralI love to wear coral…how about you? This is a popular color for this summer season, so if you don’t have anything in this color, it shouldn’t be hard to find.

    What a cute outfit! It took me a long time to realize that I liked coral. Now, like you, I can’t get enough. πŸ™‚

    You look great in coral. I have lots of it in my wardrobe, to the point where i won’t allow myself to buy it again. I like that you’ve teamed it with white.

    • shelliebowdoin21@gmail.com says:

      Yes, it really made a nice contrast. Thanks for stopping by.

  9. That is a great color on you! It shows off your personality.

  10. amy says:

    Such a great color on you! Love your pics!

  11. You just look so cute in everything you wear! Coral is not one of the colors I can wear unfortunately. Even a sales clerk trying to sell me a shirt had to admit when I came out of the dressing room that I didn’t look good in the color. Now that’s a definite sign I can’t wear the color! πŸ™‚ I just love your bubbly personality that comes alive in all of your pictures and your posts. Have a wonderful week ahead!
