Stylishly Hot
Your look can be just as steaming as Cincinnati's 90-degree days with this fashion forecast of all of the season's hottest trends. Check out these four new looks that'll heat up your wardrobe.

This summer, you want to look just as hot as the weather, and Cincy Chic met with Trend Boutique Owner Stephanie Rozanovich to help your style temperature rise. So follow these fashion trends, and you'll be sizzlin'.


Prints, Prints, PRINTS!


Yes, it deserves a triple repetition. From tie-dye to floral to tribal chic, prints are in. Some prints take over an entire look, but you don't have to commit to an all-over floral to make this trend work.


If you prefer a less overwhelming incorporation, try accessorizing with print elements. This can mean a single flower at the top of a solid shirt or a navy (trend color) dress that transforms into a tie dye print at the bottom, Rozanovich says.


Peek-a-Boo Continues


Spilling over from spring and even fall, this trend has everyone playing the game. Cut-out backs and one-shoulder looks remain strong, Rozanovich says, but summer takes it a step further with lace, crochet work and nude colors. Expect to be transformed from head to toe with crochet work 052410FASHION2.jpgaround the neckline and a pair of nude-colored shoes lengthening your legs.


Beyond the actual nude color, pale pinks and icy grays also play into the trend and can contrast the brighter colors of the prints. So just like you don't need an all-over print to stay stylish, Rozanovich recommends picking one piece to pull off the peek-a-book look.


Denim Love


Denim is taking center stage in summer wardrobes this year, and we're not just talking about jeans. Celebrities are pairing denim with denim, but you can go either/or, depending on your comfort level. Today's jean jackets and denim vests provide a feminine look with a masculine touch, Rozanovich says, and she recommends investing in a denim vest for a cooler outfit that will keep you hot.


Striped Out


Horizontal stripes are in, but keep an open mind to more than just a "wide waist" mentality. Just like the other trends, you can incorporate stripes with your accessories. Rozanovich carries a cute clutch with horizontal stripes. And as for colors, look for navy, 052410FASHION3.jpgblack or red with white.
