Most people love summer because of the hot weather, yet for fashionistas it is the seasonal clothes that have made summer capture the hearts of many. From bright colours to light fabrics; what is not to love? We know summer isn’t quite here yet, but there is nothing like being prepared, right?
For a lot of people summer represents the perfect opportunity to play around with different prints. During winter most people tend to wear dark block colours and focus on layering. Therefore, during the warmer months, people relish the loud and bold patterns available in stores.
Take a look at the top prints to wear this summer…
There is only one place to begin when discussing summer prints and this is of course with floral.
Floral printed clothing will never let you down each year summer comes knocking, meaning you can buy clothes which will be fashionable for many years.
The great thing about floral is that because it has become so popular there have been many adaptations of the print. So, there is definitely a floral garment for all! All you need to do is look on a popular clothing website, such as Petal and Pup’s women’s clothing, to see that this is the case.
In fact, the versatility of this print is also aptly displayed by the array of different types of flowers that can be incorporated as well as the various colours used.
You should play to the prettiness and playfulness of this trend; wear your hair in loose bouncy curls and team with delicate accessories for the full effect.
Geometric patterns are one of the latest trends to really take the world of fashion by storm. They have been teamed with bright colours to create a look that is more than ideal for summer.
You often find geometric patterns incorporated on bodycon dresses and tight crop tops. However, more subtle styles include elegant blouses. Because of the fact that there is a lot going on this trend tends to be quite flattering.
This is the sort of trend that is ideal for a summer night out. If you are heading for an evening of cocktails and dancing then why not team a geometric pattern bodycon dress, with gold earrings or a gold choker, and a bright coloured lipstick (choose your shade depending on the colours incorporated in the dress).
And last but not least, this article would not be complete without everybody’s favourite animal print; leopard. If you want to walk on the wild side this summer then this is definitely the clothing trend for you.
If you truly want to create the perfect summer look then teaming leopard print with coral is the way to do it. The pattern and colour work beautifully together.
If you are going for night time glam then opt for a fitted leopard print dress, with barely there coral sandals, coral lipstick and a coral oversized clutch bag.
If you are looking to rock this combination during the day then opt for leopard print denim shorts and an oversized coral t-shirt with large shades and a tote.
Another colour which leopard print goes great with is turquoise. This aptly displays that the trend is a lot more versatile than many seem to believe.
