Aside from fall, summer has to be the best season for fashion. One of the main reason we look forward to summer is the weather, we get to enjoy some sunshine. So grab that swimsuit you’ve been saving all winter long in your closet, and head to the beach for some waves. Summer is the thought of drinking iced, cold mojitos on the beach with your girlfriends while tanning. It’s the season for family BBQ’s in the backyard.
Summer Activities and Holidays
The summer weather gets you into workout mode. It can be hard to get motivated to work out when it’s freezing outside and all you want to do is eats loads of carbs, but when it’s warm outside there’s no reason to say no to a run. Or maybe you want to do a whole workout in the outdoors. There’s nothing more satisfying than being able to sit in a biergarten or a roof top bar as the sun is shining, while drinking with a group of friends. Let’s not forget the 3 day weekends we get from summer holidays: Memorial Day, Independence Day and Fourth of July. These are typically the weekends where family and friends plan beach getaways or huge BBQ parties.
This summer’s strong vibrant color palette includes pastel hues on light, nuances going from lavender to pink. Lavender is a romantic yet elegant color that you can wear on a masculine suit this summer. Let’s not forget that Pantone’s 2018 color of the year is Ultra Violet. Other summer colors to totally indulge in include rapture rose, sky blue, light green, military green, milk white, chocolate brown, yellow and tomato red. Rapture rose is a princess-like, intense pink shade. Rock these colors all summer long, whether it’s your bathing suit, top, dress, shorts – you name it, the options are endless.
Summer Fashion Trends
This summer’s fashion trends include vintage tropical shirts, neon green dresses, floral dresses, animal print and more. It’s time to invest in tropical print shirts that you’re dad would definitely approve of. Neon is also making quite a statement as it’s on everything from dresses to shoes. The return of the bucket hat is something we did not see coming. It’s the perfect accessory to wear with everything from swimsuits to floral dresses. Bike shorts are a trend I’m totally here for this summer. You can style these sporty bottoms beneath wrap dresses, oversize button-downs, and even with oversize blazers and sneakers. Let’s not forget floral dresses, nothing says summer like a nice, floral dress.
