To many, summer is the best season of the year. It is the time where we all get together with friends, celebrate, family occasions and vacations, and times where we get to show off new fashion trends!

So I decided to put together a special AlBalsamLife.com's style guide for when the sun comes down in these beautiful summer nights!
Please note that these outfit are not particularly aimed to be worn where I live (Oman), but in fact I picked several items that I personally liked and think would be suitable for the summer season.
Shades of Orange & red

For those who know me, it is obvious that I am personally not a very big fan of color and would rather wear earthy tones, neutrals, black and white. However, summer gives me the chance to always experiment with bolder color tones such as orange and the many different shades of red and pink! Chiffon and silk are what I like to call summer fabrics, make sure you interpret them on your outfit.
Inspired by earth tones accessories

For the love of neutral browns and earth-tones, I have to add earth toned jewelry and accessories to almost all my summer outfits (whenever I can!). I am currently loving delicate gold-tones jewelry for my hands, but statement nude high heeled shoes to finish up the outfit. Using such soft accessories for summer gives room for experimenting with clothing items.
