The sun is finally shining! What does that mean? It’s time to push aside your spring wardrobe and add the summer clothes! For the past few months I have been really looking forward to summer and all of the fashion that comes with it. Summer dresses, shorts, tunics, and sandals! And of course fun summer bright coloured bags. As the sun shines, you will too with these great new additions to your wardrobe.
For summer statement pieces, look for details, which can easily change the look of a piece of clothing. Colour blocking is the spot on trend this season, with brights matched with brights and neutrals matched with neutrals. Jump on the bandwagon and slip into a sheer maxi dress. This is the perfect item of clothing for hot days and romantic dinners.
The perfect holiday accessory- when you only want to pack a carry-on, this item is super easy to fit into your luggage and won’t crease as badly as other fabrics. Gorgeous with wedges and a shrug,or even a sun hat. Or dress down with a pair of flat sandals, and add a sexy clutch for instant night time chicness.
The key trend for summer is the 70’s era. There will be a lot of white, cream, and nude which are of course staples that should definitely be in your wardrobe. Look for dresses, blouses, trousers, and shoes in these colours. These are perfect starting points for your summer wardrobe as they will match with everything, including those bright colour blocking colours.
And don’t forget about the romantic lace pieces you need to pick up. Lace is back to its classic and traditional roots with simple and gorgeous dresses. Whether they be maxi or mini, be sure to add something with white lace to your wardrobe.
A lot of the high streets are carrying lace in their summer collections, this is a great substitute if you can not afford designer-wear. Plus, you don’t feel so bad buying affordable trendy pieces. This way- if the style changes you don’t feel so bad throwing out that pair of pumps, or a top you just had to have last season!
Be sure to pick up a nude handbag that was will transition from season to season. As we have clearly seen, since this colour trend is still going strong. Try pairing something neutral with your colour blocking outfit filled with blues, purples, and yellows.
