Summer is an amazing explosion of colour and the summer 2016 fashion trends are absolutely no exception. Designers are sending vivid collections of graphic pieces down the catwalks and we can’t get enough of the retro styling. Here’s our rundown of hot summer style for women in a quick set of summer fashion tips.
These are perhaps the one piece of your wardrobe which needs to go with everything so choose wisely. As any good fashionista knows great pieces are an investment – go for glamour and choose the gorgeous and quality design of this year’s Chanel glasses collection. Fashion front rows are full of cat-eye styles, but not as big as previously seen. Round frames are also getting some attention, with leading beauties like Kendall Jenner rocking their retro vibe.
These gorgeous dresses are looking slinky, shiny and sexy this season. Bringing back the underwear as outerwear trend this summer layer them up with frilly undershirts and jumpers to really get the high-fashion look. If you’re looking to take these to a more practical level team them with a pair of chunky sandals (another key summer trend) and let the summer sun get on your shoulders. Winter is over, let’s celebrate!
This classic wardrobe staple is back again and expect to see it splashed everywhere across ladies ranges from accessories to swimwear. Younger ladies look great in this print across playsuits and rompers, with some really vibrant looks teaming halternecks or off-shoulder tops with cut off jeans. For the more mature palette, midi dresses or structured ruffled shirts are a super sophisticated way to pull off these Hollywood starlet checks.
Stripes are big this season, literally. Wide bands running horizontal, vertical, all day, into the night, layered-up or draped on silk – this eternal look is all over the look books. This is a style that’s been around forever and that’s just because it’s so chic and simple. If you’re not sure it’s for you, try a basic Breton tee under a crisply laundered white shirt. Step outside. Wait for the compliments. Gorgeous.
Ever since Clara Delevigne chose the humble backpack as one of her statement pieces in her Chanel collection these little accessories have been flying off the shelves. They’ve had a sleek, glossy makeover so don’t expect to be able to pack for the beach in these petite little numbers. Think luxe fabrics, contrasting textures and bright patterns. Add a great pair of classic sunglasses to properly pull off the Clara look.
Simple, chic and retro. That’s the look for this summer. Mixing up patterns with classic looks, and a sprinkle of great accessories leaves you set for any summer event. You’ll be so keen to get out and show off it’s a good job the sun’s shining!
