The Do's and Don'ts of Summer Fashion
Did you ever get behind a fashion movement that you later regretted? Have you ever looked at a photo and wondered why your friends let you leave the house? At some point, we all make fashion choices that are less than ideal, and today’s post is dedicated to helping you make great choices this summer.
Here at Double Icon, we know that it isn’t always easy to find affordable women’s clothing, especially if you’re looking for something that will last longer than a season. We’ve made it easier than ever to find fashionable staples that you can enjoy for years to come. Check out our catalog to find stylish rompers, cute casual tops, all of the latest dress styles, and so much more!
Do: Invest in Summer Dresses
If you’re anything like us, then you’ve probably found yourself waiting all year to take your favorite summer dresses out of storage. A great dress isn’t just an essential part of summertime fashion — it’s a part of the carefree, whimsical summer lifestyle we all deserve to live.
If it’s been a while since you’ve purchased a stylish dress, there’s no better time than right now to shop the Double Icon catalog. We have short, midi, and maxi dresses in 2020’s hottest colors at prices you won’t believe.
Don’t: Choose Fashion Over Comfort
At one point or another, we’ve all sacrificed our own personal comfort just to look great. Maybe you’ve grit your teeth and put on an uncomfortable pair of shoes for a big night out, or maybe you weren’t comfortable with how a certain material felt on your skin. We’ve all been there, but you don’t have to go there again.
While it’s important to look your best, you shouldn’t forget about the importance of feeling your best, either. Luckily, you never have to worry about sacrificing comfort just for the sake of fashion when you shop the Double Icon catalog.
Do: Keep up With Summer Color Trends
Although summer colors don’t usually change significantly from year to year, they do change enough that it’s important to stay current. It’s not that you need to throw out or avoid wearing everything in your wardrobe that isn’t in — it’s just more fun to shop pre-season deals and find new pieces that you can wear with confidence all summer long!

Don’t: Be Afraid to Accessorize
Is there anything that the right accessories can’t do?
Seriously — the right accessories can turn an ordinary outfit into something extraordinary and luxurious. A vibrant belt paired with a neutral jumper instantly creates a more complex and nuanced look; a small, subtle necklace can bring out the best in the rest of your outfit. Everyone has their own unique style, so don’t be afraid to experiment and find combinations you love as the weather gets warmer!
Do: Keep It Simple From Time to Time
While this point might sound like it’s in conflict with the previous tip, it’s important to remember that fashion is dynamic — it’s not meant to stay the same every day. Plus, isn’t the point of summer to be whimsical and carefree?
If you normally accessorize, layer, and spend a great deal of time creating the perfect outfit, throw your routine to the wind for a day and practice the art of simplicity! You might find that a simple white tee, your favorite pair of jeans, and a great sunhat make just as much of a statement as some of your more complex combinations.
Don’t: Forget Sunscreen
As a Los Angeles-based company, we’re no strangers to summertime heat. We love stepping out in stylish dresses and trendy apparel, but we never forget about the importance of sunscreen. Experts recommend putting on sunscreen whenever you’ll be outside, even if it’s just for a quick walk around the block or the sky is filled with clouds. Ultraviolet rays — the lightwaves that are harmful to skin cells — can damage your skin quickly and shouldn’t be shrugged off. In short, whether or not you choose to take our advice to accessorize this summer, sunscreen is the one accessory you should never leave home without!
Do: Wear Denim
If you’re wondering whether the denim jacket in your closet is still in, the answer is a resounding “yes!”
Denim isn’t just a passing trend — it’s here to stay.
That said, you shouldn’t go for an all-denim outfit, complete with a matching purse and denim-colored shoes. A cute denim jacket with your favorite pair of shorts or jeans can create a classic-meets-contemporary outfit that can be worn around town or for a fun night out.
Don’t: Pay Designer Prices
Stylish clothes shouldn’t break the bank, but one look at designer clothing prices can quickly leave you feeling discouraged about updating your wardrobe.
Don’t fall for the hype.
At Double Icon, we’re proud to offer affordable women’s clothing that’s comfortable, stylish, and made with high-quality materials. When you choose to shop with us, you’ll never have to worry about choosing between fashion and fun summertime activities.
