When it comes to the upcoming season, we’re inclined to loosely follow Dua Lipa’s advice and adopt some new rules. After all, fashion wouldn’t be interesting if there wasn’t a breath of fresh air coming off the runways every several months. Moreover, you and your style deserve a bit of freshening up, because what is life without small pleasures? One of the most gratifying ones is adding something amazing to your style.
So, without further ado, we present to you the most ‘it’ of all the ‘it’ summer pieces, and we dare you not to fall head over heels for each and every one of them.
Grab ‘em while they’re hot
We have a sneaking suspicion that the ‘it’ shoe of the moment won’t make it to tell the tale, so it’s best to snag a pair while they’re at their peak. Of course, we’re talking about the white boot trend that has taken the world by a storm, and what better time to rock it and elevate even the simplest of outfits than now. The best part – the trend has already been snagged by fast-fashion retailers, so you don’t have to break the bank. This is a wise thing to do, considering the fact that their popularity could fade away soon, so grab the opportunity and rock them while they’re still the talk of the town.
Flattering on all
If you’re tired of skinny jeans and you’re looking for something not only less constricting but beaming with the chic factor, you simply cannot go through summer without a wonderful pair of wide-leg trousers or culottes. Some of the best pieces are the belted ones, as they give you that wonderful waistline and accentuate the rest of the curves. However, as Anna Wintour said, culottes are fine if you have legs like Karlie Kloss, so if you feel that these might make your legs visually shorter, wide-leg ones are a foolproof choice.
If runways are to be believed, and they are, pastel hues will dominate the season. Sooner than you know, you’ll be seeing pastel suit, high-collar sheer blouses, tunics and essentially everything else. So, while the choices may be wide, we highly suggest that if you are going down the ice-cream color route, it should be with a breezy pastel blazer. This item will work hard for you in any given occasion, whether it’s a romantic dinner, a casual day at work or even a wedding – a pastel blazer will inevitably become a staple in your collection.
All the festivities
Some girls have already had their time with flattering, breezy dresses, so now it’s our turn to snag some of those gorgeous cocktail dresses and show summer we mean business. The asymmetrical neckline has been one of the most poignant trends on the runways, so if you want to make your evening dress not only superbly interesting, but also keep up with trends, you simply have to have a Réalisation par dress like this and be ready for any fiesta that might come your way.
Always be on the lookout
You might look out the window and think you’re safe, but we’ve all learned by now that summer can throw us curveballs. In order to weather the summer showers and wind in style, it’s time to call upon the eternal classic – the trench coat. For those faithful to timeless pieces, there is nothing better than a classic camel trench coat. However, this classic has had quite the moment on the runways and the likes of Burberry have made it their business to never let the trench go out of style. Still, for those who are always on the lookout for something trendy and even on the edgy side, there are now PVC, patent leather, deconstructed and even embroidered versions of the cult classic garment.
A bag to remember
For those who are still not in the know, the Pantone Color Institute has announced their choice of the color of the year, and Ultra Violet took the crown for 2018. Now, this is a bold color, and it was chosen precisely because of its symbolism. It’s understandable if you’re not ready to be adorned in a violet floor-length gown or even a poignant jacket, but there are always subtle ways to make a statement. Why not mix two beautiful trends and go for the ultra-trendy round crossbody bag in this extravagant hue? It will most certainly add a pop of color to your wardrobe – this bag is a show-stopper.
In the name of athleisure
From a fad to a worldwide trend and now a lifestyle, athleisure has gone through quite a journey. It’s completely safe to say that the trend isn’t going anywhere, so even if you’re not a fan, you simply must honor the trend with a small gesture.
If sporting leggings and hoodies around town isn’t really your fashion cup of tea, the least you can do is choose a pair of amazing sneakers – we hear Nike has an incredible millennial pink line, so you can combine the popularity of the androgynous color and the comfort of the sneaker and make a fashion statement like no other. The best part – you are now considered fashionable if you wear sneakers even with a ball gown, so you’re not confined to sportswear – that’s the beauty of athleisure, you have the liberty to mix it with as many different styles as you want.
