What better excuse to indulge in some retail therapy than the onslaught of summer? We are totally digging these super hot summer trends, so don’t forget to add them to your shopping list when you hit the mall next!
Pointy Heels x Denim
This look screams effortless chic with the stark contrast of formal point heels with edgy denim jeans. Paired with a white shirt, you have the quintessential Parisian ensemble. Just throw on your favourite pair of boyfriend jeans (the more worn out, the better) and a pair of pointy heels (we prefer nude) for an elegant look which you can rock for brunch with your girlfriends or a dinner date with your SO.
If you are looking for the ultimate summer style statement, this is it. Printed pants are all the rage nowadays, and with good reason too. There is a massive variety of prints available so choose something which suits your personality – animal print if you feel like a wild child or Aztec if you’d like to channel your inner tribal princess. Throw on a solid colored tank top (we always stick to white), some funky baubles and you’re good to go!
Lace is all about understated sensuality and feeling ultra feminine. As the temperature goes up, snap up some statement lace pieces for your wardrobe. There are a lot of fabulous ways in which you can rock this texture – as a tunic, a fancy dress or even a cute pair of lacy shorts. Feel free to experiment with your inner lacy Lolita!
There was a time when pleated skirts were reserved for librarians, but like a lot of nerd-esque trends (wayfarer spectacles, anyone?), these gorgeous skirts are back in vogue and here to stay! Pleated skirts feel like epitome of elegance and they are just so easy to style. For a laid back look, throw on a tank top and some sandals. If you feeling like dressing it up, wear a shirt and your favorite heels instead. Don’t forget to add a cute clutch to the mix!
There is something so sophisticated about longer hemlines, isn’t there? Maxi dresses have made a serious comeback this summer, with their flowing silhouette and versatility. The best part is that they make for an ideal beach cover up as well because you can throw it on over your sexy designer bikini! You will find maxi dresses of all shapes, colours and prints, so pick one to suit the occasion and rock it with a killer smile.
Crazy Crop Tops
Crop tops have always been a music festival must-have but this season, you can wear them pretty much anywhere and show off that toned bikini body you’ve been working so hard on! Pair your midriff bearing top with a flowing skirt for the ultimate femme look or with some tight skinny jeans and your highest heels for a night out on the town. C’est bien!
Move over, bold colours. The summer color palette is all about subtle pastle shades which amp up the flirt factor in the best way possible. Pick a pastel piece (a sophisticated blouse, perhaps?) and plan your outfit around it. Don’t forget to try out some beautiful pastel shades of nail paint as well – our current favorites are mint green and sky blue.
Jumpsuits are easily one of the most playful and versatile pieces you can have in your wardrobe. Tall women can rock a full length suit with grace, while petite senoritas should stick to hemlines which end just above the knee to elongate their legs. Rock your jumpsuit with a cute blazer for a business lunch, or some gold baubles for a girls night out. Hellooo, summer goddess!
Crochet gives off the perfect breezy bohemian chic vibe, so make sure to invest in some of this goodness before the season starts. Whether you choose to use it as a statement texture or a full fledged outfit, turn up your sass and rock it like a superstar. Don’t forget to carry your favorite crochet piece to the sands, because it makes for the perfect beach cover up over your designer swimwear as well.
Dare to Go Sheer
If you should have one risque look this summer, let it be the tantalizing sheer layered trend. When done right, sheer ensembles exude just the right amount of sexiness and sophistication. Experiment with a sheer dress, belted at the waist, on a breezy summer evening with your girls! If you’re not ready to wear it on the streets just yet, don it as a beach cover up instead – a perfect mix of classy and cute.
