When it comes to the summer season, style decisions can be tricky. Do you go with practical or trendy? Floral print or bright white? Shorts or a mini skirt?
Sartorial choices abound, so it’s a good thing we’ve got super chic people like Ashley Tarkington Jackel, Orange County-based founder of Ash ‘n’ Fashn. A lifestyle blogger, influencer and mom, Ashley is no stranger to creating outfits that pop. She founded her site in 2012 after years working for Access Hollywood, and has since turned Ash ‘n’ Fashn into a full-time job and virtual empire for all things O.C. life and style.
So, what does she say about the coolest, boldest, sharpest trends this season? Read on, friends …
OK, full confession: Might have stalked your Instagram just a little bit and YES to bikinis and visors! Beside this unexpectedly chic pairing, how does your wardrobe change once the summer season hits?
Yes!! Glad to see I’m not alone on the visor trend. 🙂 As soon as summer hits, (or basically, as soon as it feels warm enough) I switch from my favorite jeans to my favorite cutoff shorts. They’re high-waisted, which makes them perfect to throw on over swimsuits or with crop tops during the day. I also love straw and bamboo bags, hats and more statement-y jewelry for summer.
