DownEast Basics gives the scoop on current trends

MOSCOW, ID - Summer is the time of weddings, parties, and special events.

We continue our focus on fashion this week at DownEast Basics in Moscow. They gave us the scoop on current semi-formal trends.

Staying cool is a big deal during the summer so, lucky for the ladies, the current trends help you to do just that. Chiffon shirts and maxi-dresses and skirts are the items flying off the racks right now at DownEast. They're light-weight and flowy to allow plenty of airflow. And you might want to purchase them in either white, pink, or floral print because those are the must-have patterns for this summer. And both chiffon and maxi's are easy to dress up!

"Lace is a good way to dress up an outfit," said DownEast Basics Manager, Ciara Riggs. "Bigger chunkier accessories that have more of a sparkle, more of a feminine look to them are a great way to dress anything up."

Riggs said a nice cardigan is another easy way to dress up any outfit as well as add a pop of color.
