FASHION AND STYLE
The beauty of spring is finally here! But as we move deeper into the season, I’m already starting to think of hot summer days and melting popsicles—which, of course, brings us to explore summer fashions a little more.
This summer, not much changes from spring in terms of trends, and I’m sure by now you’ve seen them all. While some things are staples of the season, others will come and go. Colorful plaids in pastel colors are always a great option to pair with white or light blue denim shorts or pants. This summer, however, you’ll see a lot of matching sets as well. And if it suits you, go for it! If it’s fun why not?
Dresses are boxier and minimalist, and some have kimono-style belts. I’ve also been seeing a whole lot of scalloped edges, not only on dresses, but in shorts, skirts and accessories like clutches and belts. It’s super feminine and sweet, but it can be made edgier if you pair with menswear or ripped jeans.
Suede for summer comes with the 70s styles that we’ve talked about the past few months, and the colors are very reminiscent of the decade as well. Think camel, cognac, sand, beige, caramel and the like. And get out of the box when you think suede. It’s not only about cute jackets, but every piece of clothing you can think of! Imagine a suede bathing suit—yes, you can find a few!
Palm tree prints continue this summer, stronger than ever, along with bold colors and sporty classics such as parkas, string shorts, elastic-bottom pants and other athletic style pieces. What I love about these trends is that you can dress them up or down depending on the place you’re going. I also love that they come in unexpected fabrics such as organza bomber jackets! Canyou imagine that?
Lastly, “bib top” jumpsuits and dresses are a thing of the moment. I must warn you that this is not for everyone. Be cautious when going for this trend, as the back is completely open as well as the sides, and the front of the garment looks like a long skinny bib that attaches to the waist. It can be tricky, so I’d say try it, but if you don’t feel like yourself, ditch it!
And for our super amazing mommies, I’d like to wish you all a super amazing and wonderful Mother’s Day! Be bold ladies, and have a blast!
