Five Wearable Summer Fashion Trends

Time flies, trends change quickly and another summer is around the corner. Is your wardrobe prepared? Keep on the lookout for these pieces and you’ll be ready when June rolls around.

Tie-Waist Trouser

Tired of wearing skinny jeans? Why not try a tie-waist trouser? Don’t think you can’t pull off the exaggerated silhouette? Not so! In fact, these pants could very well be your new go-to. The high waist is supremely flattering and makes your waist look teeny tiny, especially with a tucked in blouse or t-shirt. Make the look office appropriate with a wide leg pant, silky blouse and open blazer. Fashion daredevils may even get creative by pairing them with the popular cropped top. The possibilities are endless!

The Shirtdress

Going for a laid-back, beachy vibe? A loose and flowing shirtdress in a soft shade is the perfect thing to throw on when you want to feel pretty. And with temperatures rising, it’s nice to slip into something a bit breezier! The modern shirtdress has a flattering, asymmetrical hemline. Dress it up with heeled sandals and a ladylike bag, or keep it simple and chic with strappy, flat sandals and a bucket bag.

3-D Effects

If you’re dying to try something new, elaborate embellishments will instantly update your wardrobe. We loved the faux fur trend in winter, but now it’s time to shed those heavy layers for lighter options. Layering with lace, feathers or fringe transforms your style from plain to luxe. The basic rule here is choose one textured piece, then keep the rest of your look simple to let that dimension shine!

The Jumpsuit

One of the coolest trends this summer is the romper. Sure to conjure memories of grade school, the grown up version is subtle and sophisticated. It’s all about proportions with this trend. If you’re petite or have a long waist, pair it with wedges (the heel of the summer) to help elongate the legs. Add some curve appeal with a jumpsuit style featuring pockets, belts and/or a v-neckline. Undoubtedly, when you rock the romper, the best accessory is confidence!

Retro Polo

Preppy polo shirts and dresses are making a comeback, and the updated polo is more dynamic than we have seen in the past. Color blocking, prints and striped detailing are trending along with a silhouette that is sleek and structured.  Minimalist meets retro! Style your polo casual with jeans and sporty slides, or think outside the box by tucking it into a long, flowy maxi skirt and platform heels.
