Whenever the weather is warm outside, it is important to get your wardrobe ready to avoid a last minute panic shop. After all, you want to look weather-appropriate, and you want to make sure that you are comfortable while looking stylish too.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the key summer trends you need to know about this season.
Let’s begin with one of the most stunning and elegant trends that is set to hit the retail market during the summer, and this is feathered clothes. If you want to look like you have come straight from a high fashion shoot in Milan, this is definitely the trend for you. One of the great things about this trend is that it can easily transition through different seasons. Whether it is winter or spring, a little bit of feathering can look fantastic. It is simply about wearing them in different ways. You can use social media for a bit of inspiration if you are struggling with how to wear feathers in a beautiful manner.
If you do not feel confident enough to wear a jumper that is covered in feathers, you don’t have to! You can wear this trend in a subtle manner. What about going for a jumper that has a single feather on it? Alternatively, look to add a feminine touch to your accessories with a carefully placed feather. For example, fedora hats look incredible with a beautiful feather attached.
This trend is perfect if you live somewhere where there is going to be a lot of rain during the summer. You can remain stylish while keeping the wet at bay. Plastic in varying shades is definitely going to be a hit over the next six months. In fact, we have already seen this trend make a massive impact at music festivals around the world. After all, it is convenient, but it is incredibly edgy and stylish at the same time.
If you thought sequins had seen their day, think again. They are going to make a bigger impression than ever before in the coming months, and this is another trend that we are going to see transition into the winter period. From Chanel and Dior to Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, all of the biggest names in fashion have embraced this glam and sparkly trend. If you are looking to add a bit of glam to your outfit, the easiest thing that you can do is add some sequins to the mix! Whether it is a sequined dress or some sequined heels, a bit of sparkle can make all of the difference.
Of course, when it comes to wearing sequins and sparkles, it is all about balance. The last thing you want to do is end up blinding all of your friends and family with the clothes you wear. Sometimes a little bit of sparkle can be just as impactful as wearing a dress that is fully covered in sparkles.
For the past few years, checks have been on-trend during the winter months, but now they are going to make a massive statement throughout the summer months too. This is something we have seen on the runway thanks to Fendi, Alexander McQueen, and Mary Katrantzou. The great thing about this trend is that there are so many ways you can wear it. You can team a check bag with one of the beautiful summer dresses from Faithfull the brand. You can also team a check shirt with some denim shorts.
At the moment, we are taking it back to the 1980s. Expect to see a lot of big-shouldered printed dresses, pristine white slouchy boots, high-waisted jeans, and puff-sleeved jackets. We always see new trends come back on the scene, and it is always fun to delve into these eras, especially if you were not born during this period.
Remember the crayons you liked to play with when you were little, well it seems that designers have been using them for their inspiration this year, as we are likely to see a lot of bright yellow, emerald green, cobalt, tomato red, and bright shades of violet. If you are going to buy a sundress this year, make sure you choose something in a striking shade from the Crayola palette.
If you thought that shorts were boring, think again. Suit-style shorts are going to be all of the rage. To get this look right, look for shorts that finish at the knee. Again, you could transition this trend through to the colder period by wearing tights to keep your legs warm, or simply be brave if you think you can handle it!
Needless to say, this is a style that is more suitable for dinner dates or special events, rather than in the workplace. A longer pair of shorts with tights could work, though.
Last but not least, we have fringing, which has made a bit of a surprise comeback this year. The statement piece that comes to mind is the pair of fringing boots by Saint Laurent, which were worn by Rihanna. This is the perfect trend for festival-goers.
There are lots of unique and exciting ways to wear fringing as well. Of course, the easiest and most obvious way to go about this is with a pair of boots or a jacket. However, do not be afraid to go for something more unusual and outside of the box.
So, there you have it, some of the best summer trends we are likely to see emerge on the scene in a big way this season. What trend will you be rocking whenever the sun comes out to play? No matter which look you go for, we are sure that you will look amazing if you try one of these fantastic summer trends.
