Summer is nearly upon us, and with the warm and balmy spring weather lately, you’d think it’s already here. Are you rifling through your wardrobe but finding that all your warm weather clothes are so last season? It happens. Just follow these outfit trends ahead of 2016 and you’ll be on-point all summer long.
If you don’t have a pair of gladiator sandals, it may finally be time to get some. These bombastic shoes are making a comeback this summer. Also spotted on the runways were couture mules not unlike a slipper. Fashion houses like Balenciaga made what look like arguably the most comfortable shoe of the season.
Let your summer style sizzle with a colorful, eye-catching, attention-grabbing clutch or bag. Stella McCartney and Dolce & Gabbanna sent out models carrying small purses with vivid patterns and colors meant to capture the whimsy of summer. Now is the perfect time to get a new beach bag.
Denim shorts are a timeless summer staple, but if you’ve noticed these are covered in patches on the runways, you’re not the only one. Whether you have a lightweight denim jacket or you embellish a favorite pair of shorts, add some cute, flirty, fun patches to your outfit for a throwback to the ‘60s.
You don’t have to strut along the beach with a crown on your head, but modest, fashionable tiaras make any outfit look like royalty. With summer concert season coming up, you can wear one of these to keep the hair out of your face while looking totally trendy.
You’re going to be showing off your shoulders a lot this summer. Designers at major fashion houses are really favoring the off-the-shoulder look for this season. Whether it’s crop tops, t-shirts, or dresses, baring your shoulders is a chic way to stay cool.
Shiny, mirror-like fabrics may not seem summer-ready, but Louis Vuitton, Isabel Marant, and JW Anderson would beg to differ. Whether you wear a foil-like long jacket to work on a cooler summer day or you show up on a date in a sparkly silver dress, you’re sure to turn some heads.
