Finding out what’s really going to be in style this summer can be hard work – you hope the weather is going to be hot, but when it comes down to what clothes you choose it’s you that wants to be the “hottest”.
As always, designers have been busy working on their collections and style ideas so that you have a great range of attractive clothes to add to your wardrobe. This summer offers some trends that will not only make you look good; you’ll also feel great. You’ll have a huge range of choices, and here are three of the essential looks you will need to stay stylish.
Back to the 70s
Never mind if you weren’t there first time around – the 1970s have enthused designers for this summer and the hippy style first found at the tail end of the 1960s is back. Many of the clothes have a light-touch take on the style of the 70s, with refined shapes in tactile suede, making for clean silhouettes, and free-spirited prints helping to add a modern twist to a look that reflects that laid-back era.
It’s all about subtle looks, not the over-the-top bell-bottoms so beloved by hippiedom, so look for a range of color combinations to match, with trousers that could be full and wide, or flared.
Denim is back
Denim has never really gone away as everyday casual wear, but there has been a reinvention for this summer, so you can explore a range of new and stylish looks. Watch out for textured effects and faded blues to make you look cool – perhaps a little dress with long sleeves and a leather belt for that neat cowgirl look, or try out the patchwork fashion with jeans stitched together with square pieces that span the denim color palette.
It’s hard to go wrong with denim – you’ve probably got some favorite pieces already – but it’s worth testing out what’s new now.
If you thought aprons were just for the kitchen, think again. Many designers have taken hold of a technique seen on and off for years on street-style professionals. Here the skirt functions as a type of apron, from minis to pencils. Layer them on top of accordion dresses, pants and oversize poplin shirts, and show off a whole new look.
