Spring and summer are fast approaching and with them our wardrobe overhaul. Out with the dreary wool coats, knitted hats, and scarves and in with the fun and colorful warmer-weather wear! The pieces may not yet be in stores, but thanks to the fashion industry, always six months ahead of the rest of us, we can go ahead and start planning our outfits for when the days get longer and warmer. We take a look at the top seven fashion trends to get ready for!
Nearly 60 years later and the 60s are back. Or at least the tie-dye print is. You can go for a head to toe look with a tie-dyed top, pants, and handbag, or opt for just one printed piece at a time. Stella McCartney, Prabal Gurung, and R13 all shared their take on the classic at their shows. This year though, we see more pastels and less all-the-colors-of-the-rainbow tees. Either way though, tie-dye is sure to remind you of laid-back peace and love days.
2. Oversized Hats
For those days when the sun gets a bit too much to bear, you don’t have to worry about rushing off to find a cooler location. Just pop on one of this season’s oversized hats and instant shade! Last summer Jacquemus La Bomba hats were all over Instagram and this year other brands are looking to have their own viral Insta hits. Keep an eye out for some amazing ones from Rejina Pyo, Xiao Li, Yuhan Wang/Fashion East, Ryan Lo, and Simone Rocha.
3. Waterproof Clothing
Climate change is here and so is the insane weather. While we all wish for sun all summer long, the truth is the weather has become more and more unpredictable. So make sure to pack some waterproof clothing next to your bikini and shades when preparing for your vacation. Max Mara, Marc Jacobs, Jil Sander, Sportmax, and Etro all showed us that waterproof does not have to mean the classic yellow slicker, but we can stay dry and be fashionable at the same time.
The Wild West isn’t going anywhere. The cowboy boot was last fall’s must-have shoe and this spring and summer, it’s all about the fringe. Fringe on jackets, fringe on skirts, fringe on handbags – the runways, particularly Coach, Tom Ford, and Cushnie, showed us that most everything can be made better with fringe. Part of the hippy Neo Boho trend as well, it’s reminiscent of simpler moments spent reconnecting with the earth.
Staying on top of the latest fashion trends can be fun, but sometimes you just want to have a comfortable pajama day. No worries! You can still have fun from the comfort of your own couch at our online casino, playing a selection of well animated video slots.
If tie-dye isn’t enough for you, don’t worry – neon is back! Bright and vibrant, neon screams fun and happy days. Go for a hot pink maxi dress à la Roksanda, a mash-up of two or more neons as seen at the Jasper Conran show, or opt for a neon green handbag to yell that spring is here!
We can’t say that sequins have ever really gone out of fashion, but they were omnipresent on the runways for SS19. A slightly simpler beaded style keeps things elegant and classy, while shiny and super glittery options such as those seen at Halpern’s show are perfect for clubbing in Ibiza.
7. Feather Accessories
Fur is decidedly out, but feathers are in! From exotic ostrich, to elegant peacock, to more simple options, feather accessories cover it all. A few designers even covered entire dresses (Marc Jacobs) and oversized hats (Valentino) with tons of the fluttery elements.
These top seven are the absolute must-haves for Spring and Summer, but we have a few honorable mentions that you can check out if you want even more. For footwear, comfy, yet fancy flats are in which means you don’t have to worry about tottering around on stilettos this summer. You can even get ones with square-toes, a flashback to the 90s that is here for the whole year as recently seen in Autumn-Winter 2019 shows. And while some people have talked about miniature handbags, don’t worry, you have two other options to carry all your stuff around: tool belts (fanny packs are so last year) and fishing vests (you can never have too many pockets)!
