How To Style Top Summer Hair Trends

Who is ready to dive into summer with a bold, new hairstyle? We love how these trends are an easy way to change up your look! These fresh looks will prepare you for the hot weather, while still looking chic. Plus, we’ve picked out some of our favorite pieces to wear with your new summer ‘do.

Boho Braids to Wild Waves  

060915_summer hair_braids waves

Braids are the perfect go-to look for summer. Stylishly sweep those loose hairs out of your face by tucking your hair back in a chic braid. Later in the day, if you’ve had enough of your braid or you’re getting ready for a night out, you can unravel your braids for a messy wave look! Wear these looks with a maxi dress and cute sandals.

Style this look: Maxi Dress // Heels

The “Lob”

Also known as the long bob – we have seen this popular cut floating around for a little bit now. Whether you’re looking to go all out and chop off several inches or just want to try something different with your short to mid-length hair, the long bob must be your next look! Strut out in your new hair by slipping on a romper and some gladiator sandals.

Style this look: Romper // Gladiator Sandals

Wet & Slick

If you want to be daring and try something different, break out the gel for the wet and slicked-back look. Prevent flyaways and baby hairs without worrying about overdoing it on the gel! You can let your hair down or tie it up in a bun or a pony. To step up the sleekness of this look, go for some skinny jeans and a sleeveless shirt.

Style this look: Blue Jeans // Button-Up Top

5 Ways to Get Festival Fashion Ready

Festival season is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to rock one of our favorite trends: boho! There’s nothing we love more than fun in the sun with fringe, floral print and flower crowns. Be sure to make this trendy style all your own and mix it up by adding your own personal style spin.

Not sure where to start? Here are five ways to get festival ready without breaking the bank or sacrificing your own style.

1. Boots & Booties

Black Platform Booties // Lace-Up Booties // Brown Frye Boots

With all the walking around and standing in the crowds, closed toed shoes are a good idea for festivals. Comfort is key, so look for thicker heels and ankle height.

2. Layers on Layers

Floral Maxi Kimono // Fringe Lace Cardigan // White Distressed Denim Vest

When it’s hot and you’re sandwiched in crowds, the last thing you want to do is think about adding layers. But let’s not give up on it just yet! Light layers can add dimension to any outfit, so don’t be afraid to throw on something flowy and breathable. Plus, it’ll be extra protection against the sun’s rays.

3. Backpacks & Bucket Bags

Taupe Fringe Backpack // Bucket Bag // Woven Crossbody Bag

We all have necessities that need to accompany us during our day-long festivities when listening to our favorite bands. Practicality isn’t always first on our minds when it comes to fashion, but is key for these outdoor events. Carry everything in style with a roomy backpack or a stylish crossbody bag.

4. High Waists & Crop Tops

Crochet Fringe Tank // Studded High-Waisted Shorts // Flowy Tribal Print Crop Top

If we’re in a time crunch, this duo is an easy go-to that’s comfortable. There are endless combinations depending on what styles you like, so your’e sure to look chic with this pairing.

5. All the Accessories

When it comes to festivals, there is no such thing as overdoing it on the accessories. Anything is forgivable, so go for it stack on those bracelets and statement necklaces. If you’d rather tone it down a little, check out flash tattoos.

Posh Tip: Seasonal Selling

Bohemian Bib Necklace $65 (Retail $90)

Have you ever wondered why some listings sell like a hotcakes and others sit in your closet longer? Today’s Posh Tip explores marketing your closet for the right time of year.

We think it’s valuable to keep in mind the current season, the upcoming season and the overall seasonality of your garments. When listing items in your closet, take into account what the Community may be shopping for in the coming weeks.

Special Edition Ray-Bans $72 (Retail $150)

A helpful hint: ask yourself what you’ve been shopping for lately. Your thin, lightweight tops, silky shorts and strappy sandals will likely get more interest during the warmer months. When you consider that people are looking to buy in advance of the upcoming season (about six to eight weeks), in- and pre-season items can call for a higher price as they’re more in demand.

At the same time, if you’d really like to move your inventory of thick, chunky sweaters and knee-high leather boots in those same warmer months, consider lowering your price to attract buyers. Nothing is more drool-worthy than a gorgeous, warm coat or jacket with an equally enticing price tag.

Lovers + Friends dress $65 (Retail $154)

In the end, an AH-MAZING deal is an amazing deal regardless of season, but after surveying the PMHQ team, we find our listings get swooped up quicker when we’re catering to the season.

Happy Poshing!
