These Bloggers? You’ll Want to Copy Their Summer Style

As fun as it is to follow along with a blogger’s life and times, the real reason most of us are stopping by is for a little outfit inspiration. Once you clean out your closet or hit a style rut, a little blog surfing can save the day, reviving your wardrobe with pieces you might not have otherwise tracked down or mixed and mingled. Summer is one of our favorite seasons to scope out blogger style because you know they’re busy throwing parties, attending events and best of all — vacationing!

Follow along to see the best summer blogger style — and how to copy it right now.

Blogger Style: Linen

Get the linen look of Gal Meets Glam’s striped off-shoulder dress with this skinny striped sub from Nasty Gal. It might not have the ribbon tie around the waist but it does have a beach, frayed hem.

Tulum Off-the-Shoulder Mini Dress, $68, Nasty Gal

Blogger Style: White Dress and Sneaks

That’s Chic

Pair a slightly see-through little white dress in a casual short sleeve cut with an easygoing sneak. The combo is feminine and fun, and the footwear won’t keep you sidelined.
