We love summer here at Lady Code! The long summer days, glowing tans, opportunities to travel, days at the beach and evenings with friends, we are so excited that summer 2014 is finally here. Since the next 3 months will probably fly by before you even know it, this article is to help guide your trips to the mall so you know exactly what you need to pick up. The trends in this article have been spotted across the country and even abroad. When shopping this summer, think beach-boho babe. Gypsy anything, boho anything, crazy-print anything, and my goodness you have to stock up on cage-anything! Cage back, cage neck, strappy tops are all the rage.
With beauty, no makeup is in! Toss that black eyeliner and smoky eye palette! Stick to bronze tones for a sun-kissed, natural look. Hair? It needs to be stick straight with a middle part. Low, loose ponytails compliment the relaxed, boho look and has been spotted all over the runways internationally.
Here are 5 looks that incorporate summer 2014 trends!
1. Gypsy Shorts
Crazy printed loose shorts are taking over the world this summer. They are available in stores everywhere (even Forever 21 & Wet Seal), and they are selling like hot cakes. I had to hunt these shorts down to get a pair. Step up your look by picking up shorts with pom poms attached! I am so thankful that they are so trendy because they are super comfortable. It’s like leaving home in pajamas.

2. Ocean & Overalls
Lady Code, meet overalls. They are your new best friend and coverup. After a long beach day you’re ready for a walk on the boardwalk by just throwing on your overalls. They’re super cute paired with strappy Vizcaya Swimwear bikinis! Keep your overalls in season by pairing them only with bikinis or crop tops.

3. Beach Goddess
Just because you are at the beach doesn’t mean you can’t let your inner goddess show! Be the center of attention in this eye-catching colorful look. Maxi-skirts are here to stay (thank goodness)! Pair them with platform wedges, straight hair, round sunnies and an intention stack from Karmic Blessings to keep your Maxi look 2014 appropriate!

5. Boho Besties
I’m obsessed with this Eye of Horus crop top from Vizcaya Swimwear! I wear it about 3 times a week (okay, maybe not) and it can be worn with everything. For this look I dressed with my crazy African boho print pants and paired it with the Picasso Stack from Karmic Blessings. Of course, my best friend had to be in the shot with me to show the second look: The Hand of Fatima crop top and high waisted shorts.
