How to Spruce Up Your Summer Looks

I recently introduced you guys to one of my new favorite brands, Nordstrom 1901, here but had a few more summer outfit ideas I wanted to share. You guys know I love my trying new trends and bold accessories, but sometimes, I just want to simplify. And that requires getting down to one striking detail to spruce up your summer look. For me, that’s been tie waist and bow tie details! Unsurprisingly, there’s plenty to be found in the 1901 collection. Click through to see more ways to spruce up your summer looks!

Tie-Waist Bottoms

First up is tie-waist bottoms. Who needs a belt if your pants or skirt comes with a bow-tie belt? This 1901 skirt is the perfect example of that. With the striped pattern and a prolific bow around the waist, this style screams timeless glamour – and it’s so refreshing for summer. I love that it fits like a dream and is so flattering with the subtle pleats around the waist. The designer quality but affordable price point is unmatched. Don’t forget to check out the assortment of tie-waist skirts and pants!

Tie-Detail Dresses

Wrap dresses are no doubt one of my favorite summer styles, but 1901 takes them to another level by adding prominent sashes that can be tied into a perfect bow. And it doesn’t stop there. You’ll find plenty of dresses with bows adorning the shoulders as well as the back. You know I’m a huge fan of Nordstrom’s extensive options at all different price points!

Tied Tops

I know it can be hard to refrain from the same graphic tee or camisole in the summertime – I’m guilty! So, why not switch things up and dress up your outfit with a wrap or tie-front blouse? It’s obvious now that there’s no shortage of bows in the 1901 collection, and I’m not complaining. I love the charming, graceful silhouettes – and the bow tie details only add extra style points!

Have you shopped the Nordstrom 1901 collection yet? Which was your favorite way to spruce up a summer outfit?

    I’ve never been a fan of tie-detail dresses, but I’m really liking the dress you’re wearing! Maybe I’m growing into the look? Will definitely have a browse around my local stores to find a similar one! 🙂

    Wow! You are looking so beautiful in these pictures. Thanks for sharing this amazing post. Fashion is a popular aesthetic in a certain time and context, especially in clothing and you truly have a good taste of fashion and style selection. Denim is perfect for any occasion and never goes out of style. I’m a jewelry lover and I’ll definitely try this look with my nose piercing jewelry. In these days Nose Piercing is a huge trend. Thanks for the lovely post..

    This is really something what, I’m looking for. Thanks a lot for this post. You look damn hot in these outfits. A fashion accessory is a decorative item that supplements one’s outfit. An accessory adds color, style, and class in an outfit. Well, if I’d be asked to add accessories to my style, I would prefer Owl scarf in the first place. The Owl scarf have become very popular.
