Now that summer has finally arrived, and when the school bags are switched for beach bags (a fair trade I must notice), it is about time to start thinking about the answers to the eternal existential question: “What to wear”. Beside having your fabulous summer essentials, you can’t just put on any ol’ swimsuit and flip-flops and that’s it. A true fashionista knows how important is to reflect her “passion for fashion” on her beachwear too. To spare you the digging through the endless web posts, blogs and magazines, I’ve done some digging on my own, and luckily for you, I’ll share my findings with you. So, read on, to find out the hottest beach lovin’ trends for this season. Be careful not to burn yourself though, they sure are hot.
Cut the story shorts
Let me cut this long story short, and say shorts are always IN, especially denim ones. But there is a new trend in town, compared to last year’s as-short-as-it-can-be and let-the-pockets-show trend. So give your mom a break from nagging about super-short shorts this year and chose an ultimate hit- cuffed denim shorts. It can still give away the distressed look, but a little more polished. Besides, the loose boyfriend style is much more comfortable for the beach.
Swimsuit as a statement
Who can imagine summer break without a swimsuit? This year’s quest for the right swimwear may be a little more difficult than the last one, not because there is nothing to be found, but exactly because of variety of choices, for every style and every figure (fringes, crop tops, high waist, crocheted, etc.).If you don’t know where to look, let your favorite celebs show you the way; form Shay Mitchell’s mesh one-piece and Kylie Jenner’s cutout bikini to Ellie Goulding’s color-block bikini, they sure know how to rock a swimwear.
Cover-up with a hint
Everyone loves beach cover-ups, they’re sexy and stylish, revealing and concealing, simply perfect. For this season you can opt for kimonos with tropical inspired prints and fringe or bohemian kaftans. Multifunctional sarongs are always a hit, especially in season’s hottest yellow and green colors. If you are headed on some awesome poolside or seaside party, just put on a vivid beach dress on top of your bikini or one piece suit, and you’re good to go.
Just kidding, I’m referring to seasonal hottest hit: skater dresses and skirts. You probably remember your mom’s stories about the 90’s, well this trend is the perfect reminiscent of the golden years of fashion experimenting. The trademark cut of a skater dress and the in-between-mini-midi length will give you a stunning waist and a chance to show off your gorgeous legs. So, why not go back to the past, when this blast is that amazing?
Come out and play
It’s summer break so it’s the right time to get playful with playsuits and start jumping of joy with jumpsuits. Sometimes a dress just won’t do and in those times, you should grab a playsuit or jumpsuit. So for a trendy and fun look, play around with patterns, textures, materials and colors, such as boho print, chiffon, fringe, lace, leopard print, zig-zag print, crossover cut, open back, crochet, strappy back, Aztec print, etc. If you’re headed to some family celebration or some similar more formal event, repeat everything, but this time with a jumpsuit.
No reason to wait any longer, get this party started! Have fun girls, that’s what summer is about and enjoy this fantastical summer trends all the way to September.
