Summer is almost here, and this year will be one to remember. The world is slowly starting to reopen which means you can finally start to dress up again. After living in sweats so long this is the perfect opportunity to fall back in love with fashion. This summer is all about subtle romance and easy glamour; the perfect combination for a post-lockdown world. With warmer, brighter days ahead refreshing your wardrobe has never felt better. Here are the hottest summer fashion trends to look out for this upcoming season.
Evoke a romantic feeling while being bold with puffy sleeves. This voluminous trend is ideal for summer as it protects your skin without clinging to it. Plus, it gives off some serious bohemian vibes that will look right at home on the beach or at a picnic in the park. You can try out this trend with a sweet ditsy floral midi dress or a ruffled button-down version.
Give your basic crew-necks a rest this season. Summer 2021 is all about drawing attention to the upper body in some form or another. If you’re not into puffy sleeves you can show off your neckline and shoulders in other forms. There’s the 70s-inspired halter neck, the eye-catching square neckline, or a unique collar.
If easy and breezy is your motto for the summer you should definitely incorporate it into your wardrobe. Sheer fabrics and high temperatures are a match made in heaven. Their barely-there lightweight feeling will make it feel like you’re wearing a cloud. A touch of sheerness will add a flirty and feminine feeling to any outfit. Try a dreamy white dress that works just as a swimsuit coverup as it does a day trip OOTD. If you’re more into prints we recommend this pretty floral dresser that will keep you looking cute wherever you go.
Soft pastels are traditionally known as spring colors, but we love them so much we’ll wear them until the leaves start falling. When you think about it pastels are actually very relevant for the summer months. The sweet hues are reminiscent of ice cream scoops and sunsets. Pastels are a fantastic choice for those that love colour; they look amazing mixed together as proved by these adorable tie dye sets. If you’re looking for something more dressy go for a mustard yellow A line dress that will look great for a summer in the city.
Step aside, muted minimalism. This summer is all about bright, big, and bold prints. There’s nothing wrong with basics, but sometimes it’s good to stand out with a vibrant print. This summer we’re loving playful polka dots, pretty folk-inspired florals, and spaghetti princess dress . The great thing about prints is that they exude effortless style. You can count on your one printed piece to make a stylish statement. The rest of your outfit can stay simple. Wearing a print doesn’t require much effort, but it makes a big impact.
We love that designers are keeping comfort in mind more than ever. After lockdown some of us may never be ready to go back to restricting fabrics and tight shapes. But that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice style and femininity. Floaty yet beautiful maxi dresses are here to save the day! They’re the easiest way to look elegant yet stay comfortable. Strappy maxis give all the beach vacation vibes while versatile shirt-dresses can be accessorized for the city, country, or coast.
You can relax now if the aforementioned bold prints and bright colors make your minimalistic soul feel nervous. Simple neutrals will always remain elegant and chic! A lightweight knit will look great with your favorite pair of shirts or a mini skirt. For an effortless and romantic feel choose a softly tiered maxi dress. And if you don’t mind a bit of print, may we suggest a classic yet playful black and white polka dot dress?
Lace and Crochet
These beautiful textures really shine during the warmer months. Their intricate and delicate nature match the brighter days and lighter moods. Layer a lace kimono over your basic t-shirt and jean outfits to add interest and create depth.
