When it comes to summer styles it can sometimes be hard to decide what steps to take in order to update your look. What key pieces or trends will complete your summer wardrobe, make you feel your most confident, and turn heads in the right way? This year, there are a few key trends that are accessible and cute for any age, lifestyle or budget.
3. Making Your Look Fun and Funky with Vintage Inspired Throwback Tie Dye
If you are looking for fun summer t-shirts to update your look, tie dye is a great option. DIY this look with old white t shirts and a tie dye kit or try trendy tie dye summer t-shirts or crop tops. This look is super widespread and tie dye pieces can be found from almost any shop, boutique, or designer. No matter how accessible pre-made tie dye is, doing it yourself will always be a fun and easy summer activity.
2. Keeping Safe and Stylish with Quarantine Cool Mask Matching Looks
Staying safe during the ongoing pandemic is essential and having the perfect masks to match your summer fashion is going to be on trend all summer long. Seek out fashion pieces that come with matching masks or stock your wardrobe with a variety of basics to mix and match so you are always prepared and on trend.
3. Laying Back in Style with Comfy Cute Lounge Wear Items
With more time being spent at home – from online concerts, to zoom socializing, to work from home – now is the time to treat yourself to new gear from all your favorite lounge wear and athletic brands. Leggings, bike shorts, running shorts, and sports bras are available in a variety of high-quality materials and fun prints. These pieces also may serve as encouragement to get active, which is always a good thing to do.
4. Adding Some Fun to Your Wardrobe with Quirky Nineties Inspired Pieces
The summer styles of the 1990s are making a comeback in a big way this summer. Fun crop tops, spaghetti strap tube dresses, colorful hair clips, sheer clothing, fun printed pieces, and platform sandals inspired by this decade are all on trend for women and girls this year. Most online boutiques have 90s inspired trends but “the real stuff” can be found if you look at vintage or thrift websites online or boutiques in person (depending on your local social distancing guidelines or personal preferences.)
5. Collecting a Few Go To Easy to Style Matching Sets
Assembling a put together look can be intimidating for fashion newbies and fashion veterans alike. Matching sets in solid colors or bold prints can be a great choice for summer clothing, especially when the set is designed from a light weight and breathable fabric. Styling this look is a matter of personality, from a timeless and casual linen pant set for those who are less daring to a bold and edgy short and crop tank top look for fashion rebels. Avoid materials like velour, velvet, corduroy, fur, faux fur, leather, or pleather to best stay cool on hot days and to avoid making any fashion faux pas.
6. Supporting Local, Independent, and Eco-Friendly Designers
Supporting designers who seek to empower local communities, who help preserve the environment, and who create and maintain high quality work environments will always be on trend. Social media influencers have helped propel the eco fashion movement through collaboration with indie designers who use recycled or low environmental impact material sources. This is a great way to save money, find unique pieces, and reduce your carbon footprint. Being just a little bit more responsible and socially / environmentally conscious is not always as hard as it may seem.
7. Celebrating Your Body Confidence with Curve Hugging and Skin Showing Swimwear
Summer clothing is for all shapes and sizes and every body is the perfect summer body. The body positivity movement has helped many fashionistas discover what has been true all along – that everyone deserves to feel confident in whatever swim wear they want to wear. Daring high cut bikinis and supportive underwire tops are two on trend swimwear pieces that flatter almost any body type perfectly. Confidence and a smile are your best summer accessories to accompany any look.
8. Using Cute and Feminine Pastels for a Delicate Pop of Color
Light pastel tones are a great way to introduce a pop of color to your summer wardrobe. Pastel pinks, purples, and blues are a few soft, flattering hues that are on trend and suit almost any skin tone. These hues will especially stand out against a summer tan. Light colors transition smoothly from spring to summer and match well with classic summer colors like nude and white.
Whichever summer fashion trends you choose to try, remember that fashion is all about experimentation and confidence not perfection. Try thrift store pieces, embrace vintage, or hand me down finds, DIY your own old clothing items, and have fun while trying new fashion trends. Summer is the perfect time to try new things and trying new fashion trends is a great way to have fun and feel confident while enjoying your time and staying safe. See how each trend works for you and add your own twist. Whatever you do, have fun, and wear your new look with confidence. Fashion is all about making yourself happy, not anyone else.
So if you’re looking for a clothing brand that gives back and looks great, then you better get shopping!
