5 Summer Trends and How to Wear Them
Every year, you buy a few things which are “on trend” only to find that they go out of fashion pretty fast. But you can still buy a few items which are trending this summer and continue to wear them later, if you buy something subtle and don’t go overboard.
For example, animal prints are trending this summer. So buy one animal print piece—either a top, a bottom or a dress. Don’t go crazy with animal prints. And try to combine them with other solid-colored pieces so that your outfit doesn’t come across as too “busy.” Here are a few other items you might want to invest in this season:
- Lavender: It’s a beautiful, feminine color but in the past, it was generally considered a little matronly. However, lavender is now making a comeback in lighter as well as darker hues. A lavender camisole will look great with skirts, jeans and even under jackets for work.
- Biker Shorts: These shorts keep coming and going out of fashion. The last time they were really in was in the 80s! But you have to admit that biker shorts, with a slightly long top or jacket are quite flattering to many figures. They hold your thighs in and emphasize your derriere. So give them a shot; they’re comfortable and fashionable!
- Off-One-Shoulder: The off-shoulder look has been in for quite some time now and it’s quite flattering to most women, in addition to looking pretty and feminine. This year, we’re seeing a little twist to the off-shoulder idea i.e., the off one shoulder, asymmetrical blouse or dress. It makes you look like you just threw this outfit on and became gorgeous in two minutes!
- Patchwork/Print Combinations: It’s difficult to combine prints because you might just end up with something that clashes. So this year, designers are combining prints for you with patchwork tops, rompers and dresses. Get that bohemian look by buying one of these and combine with some chunky jewelry.
- Feathers/Fringe: Both feathers and fringe are going to be in this summer. But it’s best not to go overboard with this trend. One feathered or fringed item is enough and can match with many things. You’ll see feathers and fringe on bags, jackets, shoes and even skirts, dresses and jeans.
