Believe it or not, summer is almost here! While you’re stocking up on SPF, planning your annual BBQ and figuring out a way to maximize your “Summer Fridays” don’t forget about this season’s gorgeous summer fashion trends. Thankfully, many of the trends that were in style for spring are still going to be in full force this summer. To celebrate the start of summer, we’ve rounded up the best looks from the fashion runways that’ we’re looking forward to seeing this season.
These bad boys were seen pretty much everywhere and we predict will be a trend that keeps on going. Whether you wear them bold in black and white or mix things up with a few colors like at Paul Smith, one thing’s for sure – you’ll be turning heads!
It’s this season’s it word. Giving two fingers up to whoever said black and white was boring, this minimalist trend was all over the runways including Gucci, Marc Jacobs and Roland Mouret. We adore the simple lines and cool colors for a no nonsense approach to style.
If you invest in just one printed piece for this spring/summer season make sure it is a garden style floral print – be it a mirrored, oversized or ditzy, a floral print is a must to keep that wardrobe on trend. Be it a stylish trouser suit, classic shirting or romantic skirts and dresses. Wear matching florals head to toe, clash contrasting prints together or simply add a ladylike floral accessory to be in style this season.
PRETTY IN PEPLUM
The ultra chic peplum is set to be a huge look this season. The stand-out shape creates curves on the hips, whilst nipping in the waist, creating a womanly hourglass silhouette. Featuring predominantly on classic and elegant evening dresses, the peplum is an update to the bodycon silhouette that was popular last season, the extra dimension being complimentary to all shapes and sizes
IT’S ALL WHITE
Whilst it was all about vibrant jewel tones last season, for Spring/Summer 2012-2013 it is all about crisp, clean, classic white. Definitely one to invest in thanks to its trans-seasonal appeal, chic winter white is sure to carry through to Winter 2013. To keep the look on trend, wearing white head to toe is a must so it may be best to avoid the red wine.
