As summertime approaches, some women cannot wait to put on their swimsuits and strappy sundresses, while others shudder at the thought of facing the challenge of finding stylish and figure-flattering pieces for their summertime wardrobe.  Sofia Wacksman, Vice President of Trend for Kohl's, has identified the "festival look" as a popular trend for both juniors and women this year.

Personally, I am delighted to know the festival look has returned.  I find peasant tops to be fun, feminine, and flattering.  They offer a relaxed look, while not being overly casual, even with a pair of distressed cut-off shorts.  Peasant tops are also easy to pair with other styles of shorts, as well as with skinny jeans, capri pants, and several styles of skirts.  While browsing the women's section online at, I found trendy tops I liked in both prints, solids, and mixed media in festive colors, such as corals and Caribbean blues.

Will you be embracing the festival look this summer?

    I love peasant tops. They are cool and comfortable and they come in so many lovely colors and patterns. I also like that they have sleeves which help protect from the sun.
