Tips to Styling for Summer from Fashion Expert, Adrienne Nixon



Off the shoulder shirts and sequin pants are great to wear to any summer event! You are guaranteed to turn heads!
A simple bold blue fit and flare dress is a great option in the summer. Pair it with a “fun” shoe and you are ready to go!
Being stylish for the summer is easy for me to do because I make all my garments. I love being able to wear a crop top and not have “muffin” top. Custom fit is everything!
If you can’t tell I LOVE sequin and all things sparkly. This one shoulder sequin peplum top was perfect to wear to my daughters summer graduation from Tuskegee University.
African Print is great to wear all year long. Living in Alabama you never know what temperature you will get. This ALWAYS works.
A crisp white button down is always a great choice no matter what time of year. Paired with a cute skirt and fabulous pumps you will be ready to step out!
Nothing screams summer like demin cut off shorts and a white blouse that screams “party in the back”.
A  maxi dress is my GO-TO for summer. It’s easy, effortless dressing. Don’t forget pockets make it ALL better!
