Summer trends are heating up each year, and it’s always important to be ahead of the pack. Have the hottest style this summer with these 12 trends to try!
The biggest trends this summer includes matching!
Whether it’s your nails to your blouse, your shoes to your lipstick, or your purse to your jewellery—coordinating your style will ensure an outfit that looks chic, without being plain.
If you’re looking to make a statement, go bold! Match your skirt with your top, and try picking up the exact pattern or colour for an adventurous combo.
2. White Jeans
Black jeans are great for winter, but during the summer season put the black down!
White jeans are in. They’re just as easy to coordinate with the pastel colours of spring and summer, plus they won’t attract heat in the same way dark colours do.
Wear white jeans to work with a dark blouse for a professional ensemble, or team your white jeans with a bright pop of colour on top to shake it up!
Go for gold with metallic!
Whether it’s a small accent on your accessories or skirt, adding metallic to your wardrobe ensures your look can easily go from day to night.
Wear your metallic with a white t-shirt and sneakers for casual daywear, and go bold with pumps and a leather jacket for nights out.
4. Wide Leg Pants
Jeans can be tight and claustrophobic, so let your stems breathe with the wide-leg trend.
Pair your wide leg pants the same way you would a skirt. Wear them with a plain t-shirt, collared shirt, or team with a knit for cooler days.
Pair with pumps for work and white sneakers for those busy weekends.
5. Maxi Skirts
A feminine touch that will last forever, maxi skirts have long been in fashion. The only error to watch with this trend is the pattern you choose.
Go for monochromatic black and white for a classic take, or go bold with a bright print, or fluorescent hue.
6. Maxi Dresses
Like their younger sister, maxi dresses are a staple from summer’s past, and one for years to come.
This season’s trend is the white maxi dress. Go sheer for a statement, and pair with sandals for a bohemian flair; or pair an off-white maxi dress with elegant slides for brunch.
7. One-piece Swimsuits
Dive right in to summer with the hottest trends in swimwear. One-piece swimsuits are full of the flair and vintage charm that bikinis have yet to hold.
Be bold and look for a print that will tie in every accessory under the sun. Team your swimsuit with large earrings, 70’s sunglasses, and a straw-hat for that ‘celebrity-sunbathing-in-Palms-Springs’ aesthetic.
Sporty or feminine, bold or standard—slides come in a number of styles. Ditch your black rubber slides and hit the beach with a neutral pair, sure to go with any outfit.
Call in the 90’s with a pair of heeled sandals, chic enough to wear at night or to brunch the next morning.
9. Gladiator Sandals
They’re back! The gladiator sandals you loved in 2014 are making a comeback this season.
Wear them with your maxi dress and skirt, swimsuit, or wide leg pants.
Choose a neutral colour to ensure they’re ready to be whipped out in the next five years!
Monochrome is the use of a single colour throughout your whole outfit. Be daring with a bright fluorescent colour, play it safe with white, or keep it classy with pastels.
Match your accessories to your top, skirt, and sneakers for a trend that will ensure you stand out. Plus, it’s so easy to get ready in the morning!
11. Petite Prints
If monochrome isn’t your thing, play it pretty with elegant prints.
Much like the ‘tiny tattoo’ trends, delicate illustrations and patterns add interest to a plain shirt, without taking away from the overall look.
Play up your pattern by matching your shoes and accessories.
This summer it’s all about fruit; that sweet summer flavour we live for is being celebrated on our clothing. Citrus is always a popular choice, or draw in red with a bright cherry!
12. Bright Lips, Bright Nails
Of course, no outfit is complete without a pop of colour to your skin.
Combine all the trends for a colourful nail display, showcasing your favourite colours, fruits, and patterns. For a night out, add metallic for a first-class shine.
Match your nails and lipstick to your outfit and complete your monochrome fantasy, or go subtle with an always-in nude.
