Summer is here and a fabulous wardrobe is a must! Of course shorts and sandals are an absolute staple for the warm weather, but this year you can add another CHIC factor with these must-have items. Heat the streets up by adding these trends to your closet.
Ultra chic peplum dresses and tops are in this season and seems to have become a recurring trend, as evident on classic and sophisticated evening dresses. This trend is sure to give the wearer an illusion of show stopping curves and the enhancement of an hourglass figure. Monique Lhuillier displayed her inspiration of water nymphs/mermaids into the summer 2013 collection, as seen in the peplum resembling extra fins around the waist. An additional benefit to this look is seen in the contrast of the design with the extra dimension on the hip and complimented by the fabric cinching at the waist.
Prints that pack a punch
This spring season, the runways were teeming with clashing prints and textures. For summer 2013, prints reappear as extremely bold statements with mixing and matching prints of over-sized proportions. Everything from Geometric to Aztec to Tribal prints is sure to heat the summer up.
Embellish the details
One trend that seems to have the most evident comeback is sequins. Shine bright like the summer sun in glittery, sparkly, and beaded garments.
From structured to sheer
This past spring season structured pieces were making a big impact on the runway, but this summer is all about sheer. Free flowing and relaxed style silhouettes with silk chiffon, organza, and mousseline were in plethora in numerous summer collections.
These four trends are easily wearable and will give you the ability to pick show stopping ensembles for everyday wear or a night out on the town. Happy shopping!
