The warm months are bliss for many as they provide a break from the cold season and never ending clouds, but for fashionistas they are a chance to go shopping, replace their wardrobes and put on shorts or frocks. Summers are usually always about less bulk and more bright colours but this year monochromatic schemes are more in fashion rather than extreme vibrancy with the return of the black and white colours. Here we have combined a number of latest and hottest fashion essentials from catwalks for your wardrobe to rule this entire summer!
Lace may sound vintage but this delicate and airy fabric is a must have for summer this year round. Lace is available in numerous prints from floral to abstract, all ranging in the amount of spacing between the net. Light frocks, simple shirts or see through slips all look gorgeous in this fabric, while for a unique way to wear it you can always underline it in a contrasting colour.
Long maxis and short minis have come in fashion and gone, this summer the midi hem length dominates the trend which falls right around mid-calf which is the perfect length for a good summer dress or an elegant skirt. For a casual look its best to opt for a loose and pleated midi while if you are going formal then a fitted version will provide the best results.
Floral prints have always been in for the summer season and they still are in fashion but this time around further bold prints are also in which involve geometrics, graphics and animals. Floral prints even are not old fashioned anymore but rather unique coming in digital designs to cool water colours, perfect for the season.
Animal prints are also back such as the cheetah but instead of the usual orange tones it’s taking in clever colours such as aqua or pink. Not only are animal prints used for inspiration but animals also are creatively being incorporated in clothing this season with birds, cheetahs and butterflies etc. ruling designs.
This season clothes may remind you of your math classes but in a highly modern way as straight lines in stripes and checks etc. are dominating the clothing line. If you take a look back into the sixties or seventies then the geometric designs and bold primary colours in clothing may seem familiar mostly inspired from the De Still art movement, while Pop art is also coming back for a retro touch.
Ruffles can be incorporated in the neck line or sleeves or they can dominate the hem of a skirt or dress and there are numerous various fascinating ways for all this creating a variety of differing clothes. Ruffles have clearly dominated the catwalk this season and are highly seducing no matter where they are used, it’s best if they are in one colour while some designers have been creative enough to introduce a second colour on the underlining.
