It’s too bad that each year we forget to prepare for the summers in advance. Each year, it’s only when the sun shines brighter that we start to panic and wonder how to prepare for summers. We fail to notice how the celebrities have ditched the sweaters for sweatpants and how boots have been packed and sandals have been polished. Well, fortunately for you, it’s still not late. You still have time to gather your summer essentials for the season. But don’t go rushing to the stores just yet! Read our list of what’s in style this season and you might just find something of your mother’s or aunt’s from their wardrobe.
The world has silently cheered and said a silent prayer for whoever brought flip flops as a piece of acceptable mainstream fashion. They are no longer a summer essential for kids but have walked themselves into current trends for fashionistas the world over too. Today, they are more than just plain rubber slippers; they have come in a variety of designs with prints and embellishments, so there’s definitely something for everybody. However, this also means that you’d need to take extra care of your feet and keep them well pedicured so as to make the most of this trend this summer.
Sunglasses are pretty much an obvious item. And the good thing is, trends in sunglasses don’t change too often, so you can keep a good pair for a few seasons. However, do make sure that you not only look at the visual appeal of a pair, but also how good is its UV protection. Hence, it is best to invest in a good brand. Fortunately, practicality doesn’t come in the way of trends anymore as high street brands offer a variety of designs without compromising on essential components like UV protection. Wondering what style to purchase this season? The stylistas around the globe are leaning towards cat eye sunglasses, perhaps you’d like to try those on first to see if they suit you.
Tank Tops and T-shirts
You make stick to your stilettos and body hugging mini dresses during the evenings, but you do need your share of comfort clothing during the summers. Tank tops and t-shirts never go out of style, especially if you invest in plain colored ones. But how do you pair them season you ask? Floral prints have made a major comeback so pair it with floral shorts or skirt for a comfortably chic look.
The Ultimate Summer Dress
The summer dress is as essential as an LBD in your wardrobe. Summer dresses can be difficult to choose as not one type suits all. You will need to invest in something that compliments your body type. For instance, if you are apple shaped with your weight around your middle then look for a dress that wouldn’t cling to your tummy but rather show off your arms and legs. If you have an hourglass shape then by all means flaunt your curves with something that is tight around the waist. And as far as prints are concerned then abstract psychedelic prints, floral, stripes and tie and dies are all the rage this season.
Not many women realize the importance of a scarf. If you don’t believe us, then check out Emily Blunt’s outfit. Wouldn’t it have looked too drab if not for the bright blue floral printed scarf that’s almost covering her upper body? It adds a major dose of fun to her entire ensemble without going overboard. So, the next time you’re in the mood to experiment, purchase a funky scarf (or two!)
So, get ready to spend this summer in style!
