When it comes to Summer 2015, we’ve got four words for you: minimalist, retro, transparent, short. So if you want to learn what’s in, what’s out, what’s staying and what’s going out of style, keep reading. These are the elements you need to have in your wardrobe this summer.
Boho Chic is Back
Maybe it never really left, but this season is all about the boho. Get something flowing, long sleeved, and floral and pick motifs that will help you stand out. Accessorize with fun shaped sunglasses and beads and your look is complete. Alberta Ferretti and Emilio Pucci may have taken the Flower Power of the 70s in their fashion shows and made it trendy again.
All in the Jumpsuits
Don’t fancy a summer dress? Well, you’re in luck, because this summer’s hottest star is the jumpsuit. Featured prominently in Ralph Lauren shows and the
new Dior designs, jumpsuits will make you feel smart, sophisticated and effortless. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to jazz it up. Make a statement by adding buttons, accentuating with a hat, or going bold with long zips. Or better yet, combine two Summer ’15 trends and get a bohemian style jumpsuit. You can’t go wrong with that!
Going out for the night? Take a risk by picking a dress with transparent fabrics accents or lovely sheer material. Designers are LOVING this new trend right now. You won’t be able to see a new Valentino couture or a Givenchy ball gown that isn’t playing with the natural delicacy of the lace, or the movement of the organza or the subtlety of the chiffon, without all theadded underlining. Done right, and it will make you look elegant and ethereal.
The Minimalist Pick n Mix
Do you know what another thing that is absolutely on trend right now is? Simplicity taken to the next level with a little mixing and matching of fabric. Fashion overlords like Marc Jacobs and Jean Paul Gautlier have taken onto patchwork this summer, mixing denims with bold colors and creating something that will turn heads. Sodon’t be afraid to wear that denim jacket over the ballet skirt, or mix silks with cottons.
The Classic Black and White
Here’s a trend that is both retro and minimalistic: the black and white suit. Except this summer, the fashion take on suits is a bit more whimsical. Pant legs are flaring out again, 70s style and shirts are getting longer. Bold necklaces are back and tying the look together into something that flows, fits and shows that you mean business.
Step up your summer game and remember, this summer is all about taking a risk trying new things. There is whimsy in these trends, which means you’ll be able to experiment with looks you never thought you could try and no one is going to call you out on it. And who cares if you do? These looks are all about you, and if you feel confident and like a fashionista wearing it, there is not a thing in this world that’ll bring you down!
