Summer is here and there really isn't anything like shorts, skirts, summer dresses, tank tops, swim suits, and flip flops. The usually summer wear (at least outside the office and maybe sometimes in too). This summer brings some really great trends like lace, maxi dresses/skirts, bright colors, sheers, pleats, high-low, crop tops, cat-eye sunglasses, even the John Lenon circle sunglasses, and so much more. I can really go on about these trends this summer. I have started to already rock a few of these trends like the colorblocking trend.
Friend Friday: Summer Trends
What are the top 5 Summer trends that you are looking forward to wearing this season?
1. Round Sunglasses
TopShop sunglasses (see more round sunglasses)
I'm actually on the hunt for the perfect pair of Round Sunglasses at an affordable price. I just love the retro feeling of these sunglasses. Very 70's and very John Lennon. Another pair that I really like are the NastyGal Spitfire Weekend Shades, I like that they are round but also have a little cat eye to them.
2. Orange Lipstick
I have become obessed with the Le Orange (#13) from YSL. I tried out the tester on my hand in Sephora and I just feel in love with not only the bright color but also the rich and creaminess of it. Of course Sephora was completely wiped out (of pretty much every lipstick) and I made a trip to Saks Fifth Ave and they also were sold out. Surprised? Not really but the guy at the YSL beauty counter sadly told me it will take 2 weeks until they get restocked.
I really love all the bright colors this spring/summer season. Everything from just pops of color to actual color blocking. It's so funny to me because as a New Yorker we all tend to wear darker colored clothes, even when I shop I still lean towards dark colors even though I'm trying to get myself into buying brighter colors.
Back in May I actually did a Inspirational Monday post on pleats (which you can read here). They are so feminine and can really be girled up. My favorite pleats are the pastel colored ones since with those you can really go soft and neutral. I only own one pleated skirt and it's in navy blue, this is going to have to change real soon!
