    Summer Fashion Dos and Don’ts: Part 1

    PI girls, here are some of the hottest (and modest!) summer trends and looks! Now that we are entering summer, it’s fun to get some ideas for your fashionable side. Let’s get started!

    Here are your summer fashion Do’s:

    1. DO: Bright colors–neon and pastels are in style!

    Make sure to balance brights with other solid colors. White is always a good way to prevent too many color clashes. Also, MINT is the color of spring and summer–think mint ice cream!

    2. DO: Pearls

    1. I don’t really care what’s in style most of the time. I just go with what I think is classy and cute. But some of this is really adorable. The black and white stripey outfit is BEAUTIFUL! And my swimsuit is just like that one except it’s solid blue. Awesome stuff!

    2. I think that the shorts on the model of the “longer” shorts are too short. They are not long at all. My shortest shorts go to my knee. That’s the way that they will always be and stay.
      Other than that, I will use those! They’re very cute 🙂
      I hope that you will keep posting these fashion tips because I’m fashion challenged… 😛
      Thank you!

    3. While I was reading this my hair was already braided like those pictures haha and I was going to wear bright colors and prints tonight anyways! Guess i’m in style and didn’t even know it 😉

    4. Loved it!!:) I also liked the Don’ts Part 2…some of the pictures were funny to see that people/celebs actually go out in public like that!!! (short shorts, and low cut tops, and coverups) Be modest, remember you are representing your Creator!!:)
