GILROY (KRON) — From dipping your toes in the sand to spending time with friends and family at backyard barbeques, summer is the time to sit back and relax.
Regardless of how you enjoy the sunshine, each of these activities must come with the weather appropriate fashion to match. After a spring full of bright colors and prints, Northern Californians are excited to embrace the laid back looks of summer.
With the warm weather and easy living right around the corner, its time to shop your summertime looks now. Here are some simple yet on-trend looks for women from Gilroy Premium Outlets that will channel your inner fashion voice.
Sunshine on your shoulders
Summer brings warmer weather and the chance to enjoy the California sunshine on your shoulders. Bright, off-the-shoulder tops are an essential for comfortable, fashionable summer wear. Pair with a floppy hat and chunky necklace for a trendy look that lasts all season. White – the eternal favorite color of the season – is back in a big way as pictured here in these timeless, billowy pants.

Mix of patterns
Spring might be over, but florals are still a favorite this summer. This colorful floral is backed by sleek black and white horizontal stripes that can be dressed up or down. The contrast of feminine and fun with structured and chic makes this dress easy to adapt to multiple occasions. Accessorize with mirrored aviator sunglasses, which are currently having a moment following a strong showing at Coachella.
