The Hottest Summer Fashion Trends
With the sometimes unbearable hot peaks of summer, it can be difficult to keep an eye for fashion. It can be all-too-tempting to just slip on the T-shirt and shorts and try your best not to sweat through them. But, with a little work, you can stay comfortable and look good doing it. Even if you aren’t a trendsetter, there are some basic tips that you can take in stride to dress well this summer. With these fashion tips, it’s going to be a hot summer, and we’re not just talking about the weather!
Draw the Eye With Vibrant Colors
It seems a little too easy to say “dress colorfully,” and to be honest, it’s a little more complicated than that. There’s a subtle art to matching colors well, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need an art degree in order to dress to impress. One big trend this season is letting one color dominate your outfit, with pastel colors being especially in vogue this summer. For ladies, this means you shouldn’t be afraid to head out for a night on the town in a completely yellow sundress. Alternatively, go without color to equally impress; that is, throw on a stark white button down to reflect the liveliest season of the year. And while guys might have it a little easier when it comes to summer dress, don’t think they’re off the hook, either. Bright colors look great on a guy during the summer as well!
Bring It Down to Earth With Floral Prints
Of course, dressing in solid colors all summer can be a little boring. When you need to spice things up a little, don’t be afraid to get a little floral. While floral prints aren’t new to this season, they’re aging gracefully and don’t show any sign of stopping. Perhaps best of all, they go good on just about anything: dresses, shorts, button-up shirts, T-shirts, and much more. From small, barely-there patterns to flowers that make the majority of the fabric, it’s hard to go wrong with this vibrant, exciting design. Plus, a floral pattern delicately balances the line between stylish and conservative, meaning that you can wear this just about anywhere to look fashionable without having bystanders do too many double-takes.
Accessories, Accessories, Accessories
What’s an outfit without accessories? While accessories, by their very definition, aren’t really necessary to your look, they sure can help. If you’re not feeling very adventurous, you can still can’t (and never will) go wrong with a summer-appropriate hat and sunglasses combo. For women, floppy sun hats are definitely in this summer, and while they’ll give you that cute look, they’ll also help keep the pesky sun out of your face. On the other hand, if you are thinking of rocking the fashion waters a little, round out your outfit with the more experimental accessories that are in this season, such as a mini backpack and a choker necklace – yes, like they used to wear in the ‘90s. Hey, we don’t make the fashion rules here!
These aren’t the end-all, be-all rules of summer fashion, but if you try out these trends, you’ll be sure to turn a few heads. Keep in mind, though, that fashion is always changing. You can get a good idea of what’s in this season by keeping up with the fashion magazines–and ever-increasingly, Internet resources–or just by keeping an eye on what everyone around you is wearing.
