In every season there are new trends of fashion that sometimes spring up like wild flowers and at other times come back from hibernation. From bold colors to crop tops, this Summer we are veering away form traditional rules of matchmaking in fashion and trying on a bolder approach of blending different styles, colors and patterns.
Color blocking, crop tops and maxi skirts are the three major trends that seem to be dominating the fashion scene this summer.
Bold colors like turquoise, magenta, yellows and plums are upstaging all other colors on the color wheel. This season, women are encouraged to match colors like plum and tangerine, blue and yellow, turquoise and fuchsia. All over the Runways from Prada to Gucci these color pallets and combinations are uplifting and energizing. One thing to consider with this trend are the extra looks and gazes that will surely come your way, so make sure you’re ready for the attention. Perhaps what was seen before as clashing now is erupting with a new kind of popularity. If you want to veer away form solids, there are many patterns that you can choose from that are embodying this color palette. If you tend to be a pair shape (smaller on top with a wider bottom half), try pairing a bright colored, patterned top with a darker, solid bottom for a balanced and fashionable look.
These belly bearing tops have been taking over the summer fashion. Yves Saint Laurent, Rodarte and Salvatore Ferragamo have all featured the crop tops paired with maxi skirts or pantsuits on their runways. Although a flat tummy is favored for this trend, a fashion tip if you have a tummy pouch is to pair a crop top with high waisted maxi skirt, shorts or pants to hide the stomach and bring attention to your ribcage instead. Go for bold colors like magenta, orange, green and blues. If you’ve never worn a crop top before, I encourage you to try this style; you might be surprised with the result.
Long, flowy skirts are a fresh breath from the maxi dresses. Still sexy and alluring these skirts have an endless pairing variety factor. Color block a maxi skirt with a crop top for fashionable and fun outfit. There are many styles of maxi skirts, so you’ll be sure to find a type that fits your personality and still allows you to be in on the trend. Kate Bosworth, Mary Kate and Anne Hathaway are just some of the few Hollywood starlets that are embracing these summer trends.
