Bike Shorts Galore
Bike shorts a fashion hit? Yes, you read that right. Let’s face it, if it’s on the runway of Chanel, it is probably a hot trend.
This bike short trend takes athleisure to a whole new level. Sure you can wear them to the gym, but wear the high waisted pair. After your workout, add a cute top or a crop top and they will take you right onto a weekend brunch.
Also, consider pairing them with another one of summer’s hot trends, the blazer. Add an oversized or tailored blazer over your bike shorts. Everyone will think you are fresh off a fashion runway.
Nothing says summer like a light, lovely dress. Linen is perfect for summer days and nights. A linen dress will soon be your summer go-to look.
Linen dresses are both lightweight and versatile. They’re cool enough to wear during the day and stylish enough to wear at any nighttime get-together.
For daytime, consider a light linen dress with a pair of flat sandals or tennis shoes. There’s nothing better to wear to a summer farmer’s market or art fair.
For evenings, take the same dress and add a pair of strappy sandals. Throw on some bangle bracelets and a summer hat, and you’ve got a look sure to turn heads.
Tye-Dye Isn’t Only For Summer Camp
Did you go to summer camp as a kid? Did your cabin make matching tye-dye shirts? Tye-dye shirts used to be the quintessential memorabilia from a summer full of memories.
Guess what? Tye-dye isn’t only for camp or t-shirts anymore.
Tye-dye everything is having quite the moment in summer fashions. Everything from tennis shoes to dresses are using tye-dye patterns.
Designers like Prada, Proenza Schouler, and Stella McCartney are even embracing this 70s trend, using the bold tye-dye pattern on everything from comfortable slip dresses to big blazers.
For this hot trend, there is no such thing as too much pattern. Designers are using this trend to mix things up. Don’t be surprised to see clothing with stripes, floral, and bold patterns put together on one piece of clothing.
Designers are using this to make their summer looks bold and noteworthy. They’ll combine a small and big floral pattern, or maybe a stripe, polka dot, chain print, and their logo.
Another hot part of this trend is patchwork, which is not only for quilts anymore. Patchwork dresses, slacks, tops, and skirts are sauntering down summer fashion runways.
Jumping Up and Down For Jumpsuits
What’s not to love about a jumpsuit? They combine all the comfort and cool vibe into one worthy summer look. The best part is that jumpsuits come in all shapes and varieties.
You can find one light enough to be a beach cover-up and one sleek and elegant enough for an evening black-tie wedding.
One form of the jumpsuit having its moment in the sun is the romper. Made for more casual events. the romper is a one-piece like a jumpsuit. It can work as a bathing suit cover-up or a day time outfit for picnics and family barbecues.
When is denim not a good idea? This summer is the perfect time to take your favorite denim shorts and pair them with your favorite crop top.
Denim is also showing up in the Bermuda short trend. These shorts are a little longer and more tailored.
Another hot trend for your summer wardrobe is the denim skirt. It’s like turning your favorite pair of cut-off shorts into a skirt version. Pair this with a little summer top and pair strappy sandals and you’ll look fabulous from the beach to the tiki bar.
If summer 2019 was a color, it would be lavender. Lavender in all shades and tones is having its moment in this summer’s fashion world.
In a contradiction to some of this summer’s other more bold trends, the lavender look is all about softness. There are no neon tones here.
Designers like Marc Jacobs, Kate Spade, and Emilia Wickstead have used lavender in their summer runway looks, making it a must-have in any fashionista’s closet.
Everything from boots and strappy sandals to coats and dresses in every variety are showing up in soft feminine lavender.
In a less subtle trend, fashion runway designers from the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Burberry, Gucci, and Tom Ford are rolling out the animal prints.
Whether it is in zebra, cheetah, or leopard, animal prints are making quite a bold statement this summer. Some are using animal prints and treating them like a neutral that you can wear with anything.
Others are throwing caution to the wind and mixing multiple animal prints by following the bold prints trend.
Little White Anything
Of course, the strict rules of yesteryear on when to wear white are gone. What better time of year to wear white than on a hot summer day?
Work some white into your summer wardrobe with a pair of Bermuda shorts. Maybe instead of the ever-popular LBD (little black dress), you go for the LBW (little white dress).
Throw In Some Strappy Sandals
If you are dressing for summer, a pair of strappy sandals are a must. Go beyond summer’s stand-by flip flops for something a little more fashion worthy.
Whether you choose a casual flat pair or a heeled dress-up version, strappy sandals go with any outfit trend on this list.
