One summer trend that never seems to get old is the mixing and matching of bold summer prints and hues. This Fashionista opts for a tribal printed tunic, incorporating bold colors that inspire a bohemian vibe. She pairs the tunic with a pair of sleek Michael Kors gold wedges and a beaded gold necklace from Anthropologie. To finish off the look, she wears a classic brown leather belt. One great thing about tunics in the summer time is that they can also be paired with a pair of white, straight leg jeans.

How To: I cannot stress enough how versatile white jeans are in the spring and summer time. They are a seasonal staple, and every Fashionista should have a go-to pair. Stark white jeans should be paired with a contrasting top full of bold and vibrant summer colors. A tribal printed tunic or colorful top is perfect for this time of year. If you want a more subtle solid color, check out this tunic by Joie. For a bold solid color, this fuchsia silk tunic is ideal and classic. For a great pattern, try this batwing sleeve silk top.
