Summer Styling: The upcoming hottest trends that YOU need!
With the cold Canberra days slowly passing, and the sun finally beginning to show, its now time for us Canberrans to start shopping for the latest summer styling trends. Summer is the season to explore different styling techniques, as well as to experiment with colour and prints. However, with runways around the world showcasing what should and shouldn’t be worn this season, it’s easy to feel a little confused when deciding on what to wear, and more importantly; how to wear it.
If you don’t know what the hottest trends will be for this upcoming summer season (which is fast approaching), then you’re in the right place! I’ve gathered together the top summer trends that are bound to make you want to head out and shop right away!
With Australian retailers yet to unveil their SS13/14 collections, its only fair that we look to the European and American runways for clues on what will be in this season. From oriental floral styling, to neutrals, and bold graphic prints, here are your must haves and must try trends this summer.
Think fluid, rich fabrics, colour clashes that surprisingly work together, and think femininity. The oriental style is forever repeated across international runways during Spring/Summer shows purely because everyone has that little taste for detailed prints and bold fabrics. If you like to experiment with your style sense- definitely opt for some oriental and floral prints this season. This style is fun, fresh, floral and flirty.
If you want to be noticed, you need to start rocking the transparent and sheer look top to toe. This style is perfect for those warm summer days when you want to feel cool without having to rip all your clothes off. High shine and high sheer can be hard to pull off, but paired with the right colours and basics- the ultimate look of ‘sheer delight’ can be achieved. This style is adventurous, daring and very suitable for the Canberra summer.
Minimalism in summer is all about feeling cool, clean lines, as well as a fresh feel. It’s an approach to styling that is simple, yet effective when paired with the appropriate accessories. This trend is one of the easiest for the summer season, purely because it is so simple and effortless to pull off. This style is simple, clean and fresh.
Bold graphic palettes, defined lines and blocks of misarranged colour is what forms the incredible graphic prints that we see on the international runways. This style will undoubtedly be in this season with the combination of colour, slogan shirts and prints sure to be suited for the warm weather that is approaching us. This style is diverse, assorted and different.
Colour and plenty of it are going to be on- fashion and in style this summer season. This coming season colour blocking is returning, however, it has changed slightly. This time round it’s all about blocks of colour reduced only to one piece of clothing.
Summer is a time to feel fun, free, fresh as well as to look your best. I hope that at least one of these upcoming summer trends is for you. Enjoy it and flaunt it!
