Spring and summer are naturally upbeat seasons. But the fashion trends of the moment gives them that extra touch of fun and positivity that everyone needs once in a while. Ladies, prepare yourself for a season of fun, bold patterns and materials, and incredibly quirky fashion statements! Fortunately, the style on` the catwalk is so varied that you are left to make up your own rules and define fashion as you feel. A lot of current trends have been established in the previous seasons, and it’s no surprise to find again peekaboo and brightly colored clothes. But some old trends have developed and bloomed like beautiful flowers – no wonder here: It’s the whole body floral fashion – to create romantic and playful street fashion that will turn many heads. Are you ready to update your wardrobes?
The post-minimalist style has redefined the minimalist lines to turn any mundane item of clothing into the most exciting thing that you have ever seen. Lines are creating playful drapé effects in tactile fabrics. Pleats and micro-pleats are a hit this season, so if you’ve been wondering about getting that new pleated skirt, the answer is most definitely yes. Using simple colors and oversized accessories – especially the almighty handbag – you can create a post-modern style that emphasizes plain colors and voluminous cuts. It’s ideal if you’re an advocate of the less is more fashion gang, as the post-minimalist approach focuses on creating simple and effective shapes through movement and textured fabrics. The rest is left to the imagination of the beholder.
You’ve already seen last year the floral fashion take over maxi dresses and swimsuits. This year, florals are still hit, but they’ve grown bolder and more colorful. From floral suits – a nice add-on to brighten up your work day at the office – to summery pumps, it’s difficult to make your choice at first. A piece of advice: If you are feeling brave enough, go with the full-on floral style, from head-to-toe. Pick quality brands though – you can rely on discount websites such as DontPayFull.com to help you find affordable quality items – as you don’t want to struggle with bleeding colors and cheaply-made floral shoes. Floral fashion is bright, and therefore you shouldn’t shy away from bold Rococo-style patterns. From 70s bouquets to neon carnations, there is nothing subtle about florals. But it’s exactly why we love it so much.
If florals are not your thing, maybe we can interest you in bright fashion? The previous seasons have already demonstrated a boldness in the choice of colors with shiny yellow, neon pink, and bold blue, but this season is the brightest of all. Picture yourself wearing unicorn’s fashion: the super brights offer a rainbow of colors to look at. Pink is still very present, with yellow and blue too, but you can find tons of orange, green, purple and red fashion too. Think block colors but at a bigger level than ever, or imagine yourself diving back into a colored episode from the Avengers. If you are thinking of Emma Peel wearing a purple coat with a red and yellow dress and colored tights, you are on the right track. It’s all about colors and plenty of them.
If you are feeling courageously playful about patterns, the mix and match approach is great to revamp your style with the combination of patterns and fabrics. If you are already addicted to multi-patterned fashion, you have probably heard of the Spanish brand, Desigual. These guys have been mixing satin, cotton, beads and appliques for years on their humorous and friendly clothes. The current mix and match fashion is following a trend that brands like Desigual have long established. So if you feel like exploring the joys of mismatched patterns and fabrics, embrace this refreshing summer trend.
Last, but not least in the world of fashion, the peekaboo attitude is stronger than ever, with see-through dresses, tops, and skirts. InStyle.com shows that even stars have adopted the see-through fashion with amazing dresses that leave almost nothing to the imagination. From Emma Stone to Kate Hudson, film stars from all around the world have embraced the peekaboo attitude. However, you don’t need to get the latest cocktail dress to follow their steps: The high-street boutique fashion has moved significantly towards the peekaboo fashion with an abundance of mesh dresses and lace tops to let you show a little more flesh.
