Tobi and WILD EYES Magazine collaborated together to give you this season highs and lows. Diana Lie and her team from Tobi’s LA office is sharing with us their best pieces to make sure that we never go out of style this Summer.

DO’s

1. T-shirt dress

A T-shirt dress is an effortless way to look both chic and comfortable. Dress it up with some cute wedges or down with your strappy sandals.

2. Pleats

Pleats are both fun and versatile trend to wear. They add a little flare to any dress, top or skirt.

3. Plunging Necklines

A show stopping and sexy trend is the new plunging neckline. Show some skin and try this runway trend on a LBD for a night out.

4. Stripes

Stripes should always be a staple in every girls closet. Its a trend that is accessible and in style all year long.

5. Neutral colors

Neutral colors should be the base of every outfit. Great for layering or to wear alone, neutral colors have been seen on the hottest celebrities and fashion bloggers

6. Chokers

The 90’s is back in and with that comes the choker trend. Whether it be a choker necklace or a crop top/dress with a choker detail, it’s everywhere & a must have this season.

7. Lace Up

The lace up detail adds a bit of sexiness to a rather plain or simple style. It doesn’t matter if it’s laced up down the center front, back or at the sides, or in multiple places at once, it works!

8. Suede

The 70’s are making a full on comeback and with that comes the generation’s most coveted fabric, suede. Whether it be a suede shift dress, button front skirt or shorts, we love this rather heavy fabric being worn during the warm spring/summer months.

9. Bodysuits

Bodysuits used to be a thing of the past but they’re back and better than ever. Everyone’s swapping out their tops for a one piece & we’re totally on board with it.

10. Sexy Suiting

Suiting isn’t just for the office anymore. This rather sophisticated trend got a sultry makeover & women everywhere are stepping out on the weekend in blazer dresses and suit sets.

DONT’s

1. Mix & Match Patterns

A little goes a long way. Over mixing patterns can look messy and distracting. Keep close attention to patterns and color schemes and make sure they dont clash.

 

2. Tights As Pants

Pants were made to cover your bottom half. Tights, although sexy when paired with something oversized, but alone is way too revealing.

 

3. Full On PU

When going for an edgy look, its important to only implement one PU piece. A full head to toe leather look will look more like a halloween costume.

 

4. Tiny cut-off shorts

There is nothing wrong with showing some skin. However denim shorts should not be as small as a swim suit bottom. High waisted or dolphin hem shorts are both sexy alternatives.

 

5. Wedged Sneakers

Wedged sneakers were here for a season, however, should be retired. Actual flat and branded sneakers are whats trending and more comfortable.

6. Over Accessorizing

Less is more ladies! It’s okay to have one statement accessory to add some fun flair to your outfit but overdoing it with too many accessories can take your outfit from looking effortlessly chic to confusingly cheap.

 

7. Logo Loco

I know a lot of people have their favorite name brands and designers but you don’t need to be a walking advertisement. Keep the brand logo portrayal at a bare minimum. Multi logo prints are tacky and hard on the eyes.

 

8. Letting It All Hang Out

It’s one thing to show some skin with a chic plunging neckline or sexy high slit, but it’s another to wear something that’s too small or too short for you. You don’t want to overexpose yourself, it’s important to leave something to the imagination.

 

9. Bra Tops

Bras are considered an “under garment” which are made to be worn under-your-garments. Purposely exposing your Victoria’s Secret underwire bra or wearing a super crop top with bra cups as a shirt is not a good look. If you want to give your outfit a sexy twist, try pairing that low cut blouse or semi sheer top with a lace triangle bra instead (no padding!).
