Heading back to the office? Out for drinks? Or for a long stroll in the park? Venturing out is the perfect reason to refresh your Spring/Summer wardrobe!
Here are 5 top trends straight from the runway – and tips on how to mix them into your wardrobe and make them your own.
We haven’t seen this much excitement and change in years. Puff sleeves, billowy sleeves – there’s even something called the Zoom sleeve! No matter the name, they are a fun addition – no matter what your style. Thinking “they make me look wide”? Pick something trendy but not overpowering. Or look for sleeve interest in one of the season’s super-comfortable dresses.
Sandals are staples of summer dressing. This year, they are not only practical, but stylish and comfortable. Minimal and strappy are the buzzwords, and high heels are on trend – but go with what works best for you and remember that flats are always an option. If you live where the summer sandal season is short lived, pick a pair or two that will work with your everyday wardrobe and weekend wear.
You can’t beat the ease of a summer dress. Why? Slip it on, add a sandal and a great earring, and you’re done! Fun, colorful, and even whimsical prints are everywhere – but you either love them or they’re not for you. Practically speaking, you can never go wrong with a solid color (try bringing in the new sleeve). Consider a chic straw hat to complete your look and add protection from the sun’s harmful rays.
After a year of sweatpants and leggings, a touch of sexy is back – with cut-outs on tops and dresses. Try a halter neck, an open shoulder, or bare your waist – the choice is yours. And you can make it as sassy as you want (a touch of glam is always fun!)
Yellow is THE color of the season, with Navy a close second. Whether the yellow is soft and buttery or a strong mustard, keep it fun (think bold contrast or adding a pop of color). This is the perfect way to be on trend and practical by choosing a bag that works with everything – from a great dress to jeans and a tee.
