Summer is at its full swing and so is your social calender. With brunches, pool parties and night outs squeezed in, your schedule is probably stretched to the max. These wardrobe must-haves will get you ready for every occasion.
These Are The Fashion Trends To Rock This Summer
1. Flirty floral
This summer go the retro way and embrace florals. Flowers have a natural association with springtime and summer and floral prints in bright, pretty colors work really well to reflect the mood of the season. You can go for an all-print ensemble with a dress or by pairing matching tops and bottoms like a jacket and shorts. Play with colors but be careful to pair only complementary shades. If you like a more understated look, pair a bright floral top with neutral bottoms or vice versa.
2. Denim On Denim
One of the hottest trends this summer, the denim on denim look is here to stay. Pair a long denim shirt with your skinny jeans, add a satchel in a complementary color like tan or brown and complete the look by slipping on a pair of matching flip flops. This ensemble works well both as a morning outfit as well as in the evening. Just be careful to pair same color denims in a similar wash. A statement neck piece in a striking color also offsets the monochrome adding to the style quotient.
3. All white
An all-white ensemble is the perfect way to beat the scorching rays of the sun during summer while keeping it stylish! Whether you choose linens, cottons or crepes, white is the quintessential summer color. An all-white ensemble is a raging trend this season as showcased in fashion weeks around the world. Choose from dresses, tunics, jackets and kaftans in white that you can pair with same colored bottoms. A good tip is to keep your jewellery to a minimum. This look is very zen and over accessorizing spoils it. You can opt for shoes in a bold color to break the monotone. Another good accessory is a scarf that you can drape around your shoulders.
4. Go Neon
Neon colors can be seen splashed across runways this season. From bikinis to nail paint neon colors are a must-have component of your summer wardrobe. Pinks, greens, oranges- whatever your preference, a little bit of neon goes a long way! A fluorescent tube top peeking under a printed jacket or shirt worn with black bottoms ticks offs several boxes on your summer trend list. Adding a pop of neon to your eyes and lips is a great way of sprucing up a monochrome outfit. MAC’s Candy Yum Yum and So Chaud are two lipsticks in pink and orange that will set the temperature soaring every time you walk out the door!
Palazzo pants are a great combination of comfort and style. In the summer heat, wearing jeans or fitted pants can be uncomfortable, especially in tropical climates. Palazzos can be paired with various tops like fitted tunics or kurtis, vests and crop tops. This look works very well on most body types. Choose a palazzo with vertical geometrical prints to look taller. Palazzos look great when paired with wedges. Here again you can experiment with various colours and patterns. This look channels boho chic. A fishtail braid tied on one side of your head with a few loose strands would complement this look.
Jumpsuits can be very versatile if you know how to work them. You can choose from various options like short and long, strapless or with straps. Jumpsuits have been around for a while and for good reason. They channel instant glam. A strapless jumpsuit in a geometric print can be paired with stilettos and one statement piece of jewellery- like a bracelet or long earrings. This is a great look for a night out on town. If you are unsure about a strapless outfit, you could always wear a shrug over it.
7. Dainty Jewellery
Another trend this summer is accessorizing your outfits with light, dainty jewellery, avoiding too much bling. Thin bangles and bracelets in gold or silver stacked together look great with any outfit. The same goes for necklaces. Thin chains with small, pretty pendants can be worn with a crisp white shirt and jeans to give a lift to this classic look.
8. Maxi Gowns
A maxi gown is the easiest way to transform into a diva in a matter of moments. A long flowing maxi trailing your ankles, paired with high heels and bright red lips is all you need to make heads turn wherever you go. Maxi gowns are among the rare variety of garments that combine elegance and comfort. If you have long hair, tie it up in a high ponytail and ditch all your jewellery when wearing a maxi. This outfit is a statement in itself and doesn’t need to be accessorized by any other ornaments.
