Ahh summer… Nothing makes me happier than long sunny days, beautiful sunsets, and of course the beach! Summer is a time to put away all the black in your wardrobe, show a little bit of skin and get creative with bright colours. Luckily you can get away with a lot more in the summer than you can in the winter! With so many bright colours and skin baring trends, it’s normal to feel a little apprehensive about going ‘overboard’ – but don’t worry we’ve got you covered with the hottest trends this season and what to pair them with to stay classy and chic.
Crop tops are absolutely huge this season! What a great way to show off those abs you’ve been working on all winter! It’s easy to look a bit trashy in a crop if you pair it with short shorts, so it’s important to find the balance. Team a crop with a pair of high waisted, linen loose pants or a high waisted A-line skirt that the reaches the knee. Crop tops are extremely versatile, and if paired correctly, can look super chic. Go for bright colours and team with neutrals on the bottom half. We’re loving bright pinks, oranges and red this season! Check out these budget friendly versions from Forever 21.
Coloured sunglasses have been seen everywhere on the runways. Whilst once it would have been seen as a little ‘risque,’ now it’s super cool and every second (stylish) person is wearing a pair! Ray Ban definitely have our pick with their range of classic Wayfarers and Aviators with coloured mirrored lenses. All of the fashion bloggers are opting for the red/orange colour, but if that’s a bit ‘out there’ for you then go for the sea blue or green colour. Check them out here
Classic diamond studs
Whilst not keeping with the ‘coloured’ vibe, a pair of classic diamond studs will always be a girl’s best friend! With a pair of understated diamond studs in your ears, you can go a little ‘more crazy’ with a statement chunky necklace or other colourful accessories. Michael Hill have our pick this season with a stunning range of classic diamond studs. Let’s face it – you can never go wrong with a pair of diamonds in your ears!
This is another trend that was seen all over the runways this season amongst the shows of the top designers. ‘Candy coloured’ lipstick is well and truly huge this season! Go for bright pinks, oranges and reds. Make sure to keep the rest of your face quite bare so your lips are the main focus (and you don’t go overboard!) Team the look with a slicked back ponytail and midi dress for a ‘tres chich’ look.
With so many summer trends out there, it’s hard to determine what’s hot this season, and what’s not. If you stick to the trends shared above, you’re sure to be the belle of the summer ball!
