With the fashion weeks in London, New York, and Paris already over, some trends and stylish pieces have become significantly more popular than others. So, according to the tendency, 2017 is establishing itself as a bright season with both brand-new outstanding getups, and updated looks from last summer.
What to Wear on Summer
Let’s start with the trends that have settled themselves the most and have proven to be really sought-after. These are presented by:
- Sailing inspired stripes
- Head-to-toe florals
- Monochromatic super brights
- Statement stripes
- Bows (both on clothes and footwear)
- Cut out/off the shoulder tops/sleeve slits
- Voluminous architectural shoulders
- Waist Cinchers
- Trench coats
- Fold over waists
- Sexy sporting style
- Boy Scout sash
When choosing another summer outfit, bear in mind how hot and humid it is in your country. Remember that utility and comfort are the main criteria – if you know for sure you’re definitely gonna feel sweaty, nothing in your clothing should bother or disturb you. For the same reason, you’d better pay more attention to the fabrics. Pick natural, light, airy, and breathable materials, which feel great, look great and are super durable:
Decide on the color and fit of your summer wardrobe also keeping your environment in mind: avoid dark and tight clothing, giving priority to looser items like harem pants, palazzo pants, loose dresses, and all that, if you have a traditional hot summer. While in more humid climate, these limitations are not necessary.
What to wear in summer for women? Make a note on these successful combinations:
- Dress – It is probably the easiest way to look feminine, elegant, and combat the heat since they require only one piece (sheath dresses, shift dresses, skater dresses, bodycon dresses, wrap dresses, maxi, midi or knee-length dresses, etc.)
- Skirt + top – Having skirts in your wardrobe allows for a bigger variety of summer outfits. Combine maxi skirts with either drapery T-shirts or tank tops, knee-length skirts with a tucked-in blouse and a thick belt, minis – with crop tops.
- Linen pants – They can also be paired with various items like tees, long tunic-style tops, crop tops, etc.
- Shorts + T-shirts – Always a win-win choice for any occasion.
As for men, such ensembles can work well:
- T-shirts or short-sleeved button downs
- Shorts (colored chinos or flat front neutral shorts)
- Casual lightweight blazers
- Pants (cargo pants, beach pants, chino pants, drawstring slacks)
