Office wear can give men a gentle stylish look. The office wear for this summer has become completely different and traditional. however, trendy in look.

Nowadays, black and dark gray pinstriped trousers are very popular, but you can also try some other colors which are very successful today. You can put on some bright blazers with a white shirt and a dark color tie. However, the lime green and tea green ties are in trend and recommended by the designers because they feel comfortable in the summer not only for you but also for others. When it comes to formal dressing, plain shirts are the best in the formal fashion. You might have noticed many men wearing pink, purple or other soft color shirts and thought these are used to be colors for women, but it’s not like that you should wear what you like and what suits you and best describes your impressions.

Always choose a two button tied coat, if you want to look more trendy. Most often a velvet coat can leave a strong impact and reflects your personality.

With fine clothes, you should wear some leather plain sole shoes. You can either try black or brown shoes, but brown formal shoes look more stylish in contrast.

The Khaki pants have been in trend for decades, these were designed for military and soldiers, but men have taken it seriously in fashion.

If you are going for Khaki pants, then you should surely go for the boot shoes. These casual shoes are neither too stuffy nor too lazy and give you a hard men look. I would suggest you can also use boots with jeans and Ray-Ban Glasses. Because glasses are not only essential in summer but also add to the beauty and style.

Polka dots shirts and printed shirts are quite trendy nowadays, that you can use for both casual and formal fashion.

For casual fashion, you can put on some accessories, like bands, sports watch etc.

Summer 2016 Diaries: Raging Fashion Trends for Women

Summer is all about showing off! Showing off your flawless skin, which you have been scrubbing and moisturizing all winter. Showing off your newly acquired tan after sun bathing at the beach all day. And most importantly, flaunting away your curves as summer is all about baring the skin.

This year, we see the invasion of a great many vintage, retro and classic trends that have reigned fashion in the 20s, 50s and 70s, and have made a delightful comeback this summer. We also see prestigious fashion runways gracing new styles and trends that were completely unheard of. Variety is galore this summer, and you have to be bold and daring to play all the right fashion cards on the streets.

There is a little something for everyone in the raging fashion trends. Fashion has retained the essence of au-naturel and earthly desires, which has been prevalent since winter and spring. Bohemians have the stage set to go all out and experiment with florals and Boho elements. Minimalists have been served the largest piece of the cake as au naturel is all about keeping it minimal. We see monochromatic tights, digital prints and the exciting slip dresses invading street style all over the globe.

Let’s begin our exciting round-up of some of the most exciting trends to flaunt this summer:

Jumpsuits are so damn chic!

Indeed they are. They are the crème de la crème of summer 2016 trends, and indeed the boldest invasion into your cupboard. From Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Saint Laurent, Zuhair Murab and Isabel Sanchis to Stephene Rowllande and practically everyone else. Jump suits have emerged as a highlight of each and every summer collection.

Be it black tie, contemporary casual, street style minimalism or even professional dressing for work, jumpsuits have got it all covered nicely. And they are such a splendid dose of glamour to the wardrobe. I feel my heart skip a beat every time I look at Zuhair Murad’s short and sexy jumpsuits. Perfect to bare the skin at a summer black tie event!

The Floral Invasion!

Floral patterns and prints are the next big thing this summer, and they are everywhere to be seen. On blouses, skirts, tights, shoes, bags and much more. The hottest ways to flaunt florals are the knee length summer dresses, the long and flowy bohemian dresses, floral handbags and a pair of floral printed heels is an absolute must-have!

Without a doubt, the Dolce & Gabbana summer 2016 has stolen away the show along with my heart. Floral prints and embroideries have never looked so glamorous, and we see the dresses playing up with many infectious Italian styles. Absolutely divine and so summery!

High-Waist skirts simply redefine elegance

The high-waist skirts is an element that has been drawn from the vintage trends of the 1920s and 1950s. I must say, these skirts, at whichever length you may choose to flaunt them, bring out the best in elegance and glamour.

You can rock the high-waist mini-skirt, or you can even flaunt the floor length high-waist maxi skirt that will make you feel like an ethereal goddess. I absolutely love the knee-length, high-waist pencil skirts that make the formal look for work all the more chic.

Caroline Herrera, Gucci, Ermanno Scervino and countless others have showcased some really tempting pieces that make you want to go all out and indulge in this sensational trend. From your casual street wear to a classy black tie affair, high-waist skirts are not just functional. But also, extremely vogue!

Bohemian vibes are stronger than ever!


Bohemian and gypsy inspired elements have taken the runways by the storm and they are look ravishingly minimalistic. Free people, Etro, Versace and Anna Sui have emerged as the champions of bohemian elements, and the dresses they have showcased are the epitome of comfort and raw glamor.

These boho inspired prints are so artful and splendid that before you know it, you will turn your entire wardrobe into a bohemian paradise. They are absolutely functional for each and every occasion, be it contemporary casual for a trip to the mall. Or even, a black tie event where you want to stand out for your bohemian vibe and artsy taste.
