Puffed Sleeves are Making a Statement
These Victorian-inspired styles are back in this summer from the 19th century; and not so silently. A good puffed sleeve can take a simple white dress or a plain blank top from ordinary to spectacular. Whether the puffs are placed prominently over the shoulders or narrow down to the arms, go all out with it. You can opt for bright colors to channel some inner princess vibes or dark colors for an edgy look.
Baby Doll Dresses Put Everything in Perspective
Say hello to your next effortless ensemble — the baby doll dress. Baby doll dresses come in different color trends, from pastel to deep hues, and in varying volumes. These playful styles can be worn casually or accessorized for a night out. Many can even be accessorized with your favorite leggings or jeans.
Neons for the Win this Summer
Nothing spells ‘summer fun’ like colors that are bold and striking. Making a powerful presence this summer, this trend has stepped from the runways into the streets. If you want to go loud and wear your brightest colors, experts suggest using chunky gold accessories to add a twist.
Is an all-neon ensemble too loud for you? No problem. You can go easy on the trend by picking neon accessories, e.g. a bag, jacket, or shoe.
Pair a neon top with rolled-up denim pants and sneakers for a subtle look that is comfortable and stylish. Or pair a neon jacket with a white crop top and statement pants.
Head-to-Toe Denim is Back in Style
We have yet to see a trend as creative as denim. Denim comes in several forms — distressed, bleached, flared, etc. Head-to-toe denim can be worn as a full look or can be coupled with a white/black shirt or dress for a classic look.
Bermuda Shorts are a Must-Have
Bermuda shorts are shorts that hit the knee, below the knee, or just above the knee. They are slim-fitting and come in a variety of colors and patterns. You can pair them with a tank top and heels for a party look or a crisp button-down shirt and pumps for an office-appropriate outfit.
Bucket hats have slowly wormed their way to being a favorite wardrobe staple. They became famous in the ‘80s and ‘90s with rappers and hip-hop styles. Luckily, the 90s are making a comeback, and so are these hats.
Although they might seem tricky to style at first glance, fear not! Bucket hats are more versatile than you think. Pair a printed bucket hat with a turtleneck and mini skirt for a chic laid-back look. Or pair a gingham bucket hat with a custom t-shirt and combat boots for an edgy look.
These heels give the perfect touch to your outfit, making you appropriately dressed for a day at the office, or for an evening dinner. For a daytime look, style your square-toed heels with a jumpsuit or high-waisted trousers. For an evening night out, pair the shoes with a dress midi-length dress.
Try some of all of these trends to really amp up your style this summer.
