Summer is almost here and it’s time to update your wardrobe with currently trending styles in order to take your fashion game to the next level. Knowing what’s currently trending in the fashion world is not enough. You also need to have knowledge about styling your outfits and costume ideas to look sassy yet sophisticated and elegant. Here are seven such trends that can be rocked this summer and tips on how to style them.
Our 60’s old friend tie-dye pattern is back on the ramp with a bang. Tie-dye has been recently revived and updated with a touch of modernity and is no longer limited to old aging hippies, rock bands or art teachers. Pairing tie-dye shirts or tops with classic blue denim jeans or shorts can never go wrong this season. You can opt for sneakers or go for gladiators if you are wearing shorts. Another way to style tie-dye is wearing subtle hues of tie-dye with color block skirt and boots.
Utility apparel that strikes balance between fashion and functionality has been the talk of the town this season. Boiler suits, utility jackets, and combat pants prevailed on the ramps in 2019. Boiler suits are loose-fitting apparel like jumpsuits that can be belted up and effortlessly pulled off with heels as an alternative for evening wear. They can also be easily paired with sneakers and ankle length boots. Utility trousers, on the other hand, are not old military-inspired combat pants but loosely fitted non-bulky trousers that come with pockets. They can be worn with a classic white linen shirt or a sleek crop top that can balance out their volume.
Till last year it was all about the horns and tortoise-shell buttons that added an air of feminity to the attire. This year these pretty little embellishments are being replaced by funky bow details. So be ready to rock big or small bow additions with your outfit this summer because blouses, dresses, tops, jewelry as well as hair accessories may come in a variety of bow detailed patterns.
Athleisure has taken up the lead this year when it comes to shorts. Sports-inspired cycling shorts or broad shorts are being rocked on the runway along with jackets, slouchy tees, and blazers. If you are not brave enough to rock cycling shorts than you go for satin board ones that come in muted jewel hues. These shorts can be teamed with slouchy tees, blazers, or jackets respectively.
Puffy Shoulders and Ruffled Hems
Dresses and blouses with puffy shoulders are back in style signifying exit of the minimalistic trend. Ruffled hems along with puffy sleeves have managed to make a comeback to the world of fashion. Simultaneously stylish and elegant puff sleeves give 80s twist to modern apparel. Such dresses and blouses can be effortlessly paired with boots, block heels or wedges. Make sure that other elements in your outfit are somber and low-key so as to not appear over-the-top.
Tie-dye pattern is not alone that made come back this year. It was accompanied with bold animal prints like leopard prints that influenced street style clothing. It seems like this was every fashionista’s favorite print this year as it was seen on a variety of apparel like trousers, dresses, shirts, coats, etc. If you are not keen on dressing in leopard prints then you can go for leopard printed bag or shoes to add a touch of playfulness to your outfit.
Bucket hats from the ’90s have also made a major come back this season. Hence if you are looking for a trendy accessory to protect you from sun bucket hats is your go-to option. They come in various patterns and can be easily paired with dresses, overalls and slouchy suits.
