Summer is right at our door step and spring is quickly making its exit, so its about time we start thinking of those long hot days ahead.
While we should be celebrating the start of summer and stocking up on sunblock and tanning oils for that natural bronze glow, there’s also those amazing summer trends we need to be keeping up on as well.
The good thing is that most of the trends from spring are staying and heading straight into the summer season, but with just a little twist.
The powdered neon’s and bright-vivid colors of spring are not budging, and with just a little creativity you can mix and match these electric colors with just about anything in your wardrobe, even those embarrassing overalls you wore as a kid.
That’s right, overalls are in! Whether they are pant or short overalls, the relaxed style can be dressed up or down just by rolling up the pant leg and pairing them with hot colored pumps or just going casual with some sneakers will get everyone asking you to be their style consultant.
And if you’re worried about the faux leather trend leaving, don’t you worry because leather is here to stay.
Ditch the leather jackets for summer and dig up your leather skirts and shorts, because these pieces will look great with those neon colors we so desperately loved in spring, even just adding a floral shirt to those leather pants you have no clue what to do with.
Yes, floral prints and patterns are just about everywhere proving that they are staying strong, and with such a bold print this pattern can be toned down with a simple basic colored t-shirt.
Cosmopolitan agrees with this summer fashion trend sharing the best ways to wear florals with bottoms and tops.
“Ease into the printed look by pairing it with a solid top. If you’re ready to be a bit more daring, branch out and go with a printed shirt instead. Just choose one that has similar colors that match your pants to keep the look cohesive”.
For those beach bunnies out there, swim suits are even brighter this season, with highlighter yellow, green and pink bikini bottoms and tops you are sure to look your darkest with your summer tan.
Fringe suits are all the craze and could be found in just about any fashion store you walk into, so get those bikini bodies ready!
Rock the bikini with a pair of frayed high-waited shorts and cute cropped top and this will top off your beach bombshell look.
“My personal style is very diverse. I like to call myself a shape-shifter, I wear what best expresses me, it varies form time to time bit I always try to make sure each style always exudes timeless class with a splash of sex appeal. Eclectic is what I try to be. The trend for this summer that I’ll be wearing are definitely neon crops, mixing prints and chunky accessories with a pop of vintage retro,” said student Francesca Moreira.
Complete your look with some shades and grab the sunscreen because summer is well on its way.
