Spring has more than sprung, and summer is right around the corner. So, it’s time to ditch the heavy overcoats and brighten up your outfits! Now that we’ll be leaving home more often, why not put some spice into your style with these new trends? Let’s break down some items and colours that will be super popular this summer.
Knitwear: Although knitwear is definitely a winter/fall essential, it was looking to be very popular this spring and will most likely carry on this way into summer. Now I’m not talking about big sweaters and scarves – I’m talking about knit tanks, shorts, skirts and dresses. This trend started in the spring and became popular on TikTok when a number of people were showing how you can make these items at home. Why go and buy a whole new summer wardrobe when you can just knit one yourself? It’s a perfect activity for this summer and you’ll get some awesome clothing items out of it!
Jewel Tones: Last summer was all about pastels and super light and bright colours. However, this year, jewel tones are taking over. Instead of wearing a bubble gum pink skirt, try a rich magenta slip. Jewel tones are a classy way to elevate your looks and make you look more sophisticated. They can add a pop of rich colour to your outfit and elevate your looks.
Funky Pants: Patterned pants have been a huge trend in 2021 and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. You can pair them with any plain tank or tee and they are a great way to spice up your outfit. These pants can come in a variety of styles, such as jeans, leggings or sweats. You could even opt for a different clothing item with the same print such as skirts or shorts. The options of prints are endless and there is definitely one for everyone!
But remember, fashion is subjective! We should be wearing what we want, rather than what’s in Vogue at the moment. So take this article with a grain of salt and just wear what makes you feel the most comfortable and confident!
