Once again this summer, crop tops are going to be a must-have ! Wether you’re wearing them very short or quite long, they are still that 90’s trend that is not going away ! We can count on Alice + Olivia for those plain yet very chic tops, that we will want to match with a same color high waisted mini or midi skirt. If you are more into dressing casual, you will probably enjoy Tommy Hilfiger’s, but if you are trying to make a statement, then you should definitely consider wearing Hervé Leger’s, Alexander Wang’s or BCBGMaxAzria’s.
Just like crop tops, floral is a trend that never gets old during the summer. You can play with it and only wear a floral handbag or shoes just to give that little je ne sais quoi to a plain outfit. Or opt for a total floral look. This season, you should really pay attention to Oscar de la Renta’s very colorful pieces, Dennis Basso flowy dresses, and Ralph Lauren’s more simple looks for a work-friendly outfit.
To make a more serious statement this summer, you will want to look into the graphic trend. Aztec prints, checks, stripes or anything architectural inspired will be your best bet for the season ! We are totally in love with Proenza Schouler’s patterns that would look great with neutral accessories. But Ralphen Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg and Edun also came up with amazing pieces that can be paired with neutrals also, or neon accessories to spice up those black and white looks.
If you were dying to put that Charleston dress you own back in your closet, now is your time ! Fringe is definitely going to be a big trend this summer. Worn as details on a jacket like in Hervé Leger’s last collection, or as a complete fringe coat, seen in Proenza Schouler’s collection, you can do no wrong. If you need advice on what to wear to your next cocktail party, that Calvin Klein white dress is the perfect mix between chic and trendy !
White wide-leg pants
Looking for a way to spice up your casual or work wardrobe for the summer ? Opt for white wide-leg pants ! They are as comfy as it gets and can be worn for many different occasions. For a more casual look, you can favor Derek Lam’s or Calvin Klein’s version. However, if you are looking for a dressier version, you can try the Daks’ or Reed Krakoff’s
THE sexy trend of the summer is without no doubt sheer-anything. From tops to dresses, sheer can be aded to any piece of clothing this summer. If you want to achieve a very casual look, the Alexander Wang sweater would be your best option. But if you’re looking for the perfect outfit to go to a work event or a fancy dinner, try the Phillip Lim or the Theyskens’ Theory dresses.
They are easy ways to take a piece of clothing from very casual to fancy. This season, the best way to do so will be with embellished details. You will be able to find the most glamorous pieces among the new Tory Burch collection. You could also go all the way and opt for that gorgeous Wes Gordon dress with beaded jewels.
If you are in the mood for something original, out there and fun, the artsy trend was definitely made for you ! Since 1965 with Yves Saint Laurent and the Mondrian dress, designers have been inspired by art to create pieces that could be as timeless as their inspiration. This season, you will be able to wear some great pieces from Celine inspired by Brassaï’s graffitis. And if you just want to add a little artsy touch to your outfit, just carry around a sketch book, like Chanel models at the last runaway show.
To continue into original spring trends, tribal will be huge this season ! You can then pull it off by wearing the latest pieces from the Alexander McQueen, the Valentino or the Givenchy collections. There is no better way to brighten up your wardrobe by bringing some African folklore to it ! And if you’re just feeling like this might be to much, try wearing tribal jewlery or rich embroideries on shirts.
Pastels are always a good choice when it comes to switching your wardrobe from winter to spring. But this year, the biggest color is going to be powder pink ! Time to add a little bubble gum or cotton candy to your outfits and try different pieces from Alexander Wang, Balmain or Isabelle Marant. If the total look is a little bit too much for you, try a powder pink handbag or shoes !
