This summer is sure to be an amazing one, but it’s incredibly important to make sure you’re dressed appropriately as well. Every year, different trends emerge and we have the top trends for you to keep in mind when jetting off to your vacation destination of if you’re just planning a beach day. These looks will make the *perfect* summer very fashionable.
Shirt Dress: Among this years fashion trends, is the ever-elusive shirtdress. This trend is perfect because you can either wear it as a perfect summer day ensemble, paired with a simple belt and flats, or dress it up with a more complex hairstyle, purse and heels. There’s just no way to lose here, and the best part? You can buy these anywhere, whether they be designed specifically to be dresses or if you go and get an oversized men’s shirt. Both aesthetically pleasing and pleasing to your bank account as well.
All white everything: Though this is usually a recipe for disaster if you’re clumsy, or have children running, around try to attempt this just one time this summer. There’s something to be said for a full white outfit that just exudes class and carefree attitude. The accessories can be piled on in various colors and allows you to play a bit with the overall look of the ensemble.
The color yellow: Though many of us will stray away from yellow, myself included, it is important to give the vibrant and somewhat intimidating color a chance. Not only do bright colors like yellow and fuchsia give you a tanner look, but also are poppy and perfect for summer. The spectrum of yellows is important to keep in mind when choosing outfits in this hue simply because each shade pairs differently with each persons individual skin tone.
Blues and whites: Though black and white is known as one of the most simple and chic parings of colors, this blue and white substitute brings a little bit more life and fun into what would normally be a more of a serious ensemble. Throw in a pop of red with a hand band, bag or wedges and you’re ready for Independence Day.
Kimono style coats: These stylish coats were seen quite a bit recently on various runways, and have since become a staple of many people’s closets. The lightweight cover can be paired perfectly with a summer dress or jeans, heels and a nice top for an evening out. Thanks to the sheer fabric and breathability of it, it can be worn on a hot summer day, or layered at night when temperatures drop.
Mix & match: Mixing and matching patterns, though a bit daring, has an amazing pay off. Though it is admittedly difficult to find two patterns that don’t overwhelm each other, but rather compliment one another, the final look of various prints is an eclectic way to grab attention no matter where you go.
Gingham: This past fall saw large plaid prints taking over runways and casual outfits alike. Now that we’re officially in summer, we can see gingham creeping its way into everyone’s closet. The smaller print gives a beautiful illusion, while keeping outfits fun and young.
