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.
