We are right in the middle of summer now, which is a great time to take a look at the fashion trends that have been making a big splash the past few months and will continue to do so while the sun is still shining. Whether or not you like to follow the latest trends or like me you have your own unique style, it is good to know what’s in and what isn’t so that you can adapt the latest looks to suit your own personal style. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at the fashion trends that are hot right now.
Silky Maxi Skirt
There is only one place to begin, and this is with one of my favorites, the most comfortable and glamorous trends of the summer: the silky maxi skirt. If you rolled back the clock a few years ago and told someone they wouldn’t have been wearing short shorts during the summer months, they would have looked at you like you were an alien. But oh, how times have changed! Not only have the inseams become longer, but there are so many different stylish alternatives, and the silky midi skirt is also a perfect example.
We all loved the comfort that last year’s slides brought. However, this year we are all putting a little bit more effort in. The great thing about strappy sandals is that the block heel trend means they’re much more comfortable than they have been in previous years, meaning you can easily team comfortable shoes with formal and semi formal dresses. If you really want to make a big statement, look for sandals with a bit of embellishment some glitz and sparkle to capture the moon while you’re dancing away on those warm summer evenings.
Breezy Cotton Dresses
Not only is this a stunning summer trend, but it is a wardrobe staple during the warmer months, making it a win-win! Of course, the easy-breezy nature of these summer dresses makes them a comfortable garment for the humid days. They are perfect to throw on over a swimsuit. They also provide you with a blank canvas, allowing you to accessorize to your heart’s content. These simple dresses easily help you make most of all of those vibrant and eye-catching summer accessories.
Last but not least, it would not be right to talk about summer trends without mentioning some form of swimwear, would it? Every year that passes by, it seems that there is a new swimwear trend for us to all embrace. The belted suit is undoubtedly the number one swimwear trend of 2018. Not sure how I feel about this trend but being a curvy girl I am partial to the high- waisted bikini that provides the needed support for the ‘girls’ while holding in all that lusciousness of your posterior.
So there you have it: some of the hottest fashion trends this summer. Have you been rocking any of the looks that have been mentioned above? What’s your favourite fashion trend from summer 2018? We still have quite a bit of sun left to enjoy, so let’s see what clothing items and accessories take over during the second half of the summer.
