Fall and winter clothing trends often focus on investment pieces and practical items like coats and boots to keep you warm and dry.
Summer style, however, is more about having fun, with clothes and fashionable accessories that match the carefree season of long, sun-kissed days.
Check out this guide to 2019’s top summer trends to make sure you’re looking stylish and cool even when the temperatures soar!
Animal print often features as one of the hottest fashion trends of the season. But this summer, it’s an absolute must for any stylish woman’s wardrobe.
And, as it’s such a hot trend, there are many different variations on the theme. Take your pick from prints like python, zebra, or classic leopard, as well as striking color combinations for something a little more unique.
Alternatively, if you’re not quite ready to unleash your inner wildcat, you could opt for an animal print bag or pair of shoes for a subtle nod to the trend.
Neon is everywhere this year, but in a complete fashion twist, many summer looks are also embracing the subtle shades of nude and other neutrals.
So, why not combine two summer trends in one and brighten up a neutral look with a pop of neon? For example, you could pair a beige utility-style romper with neon yellow sandals, or a neon pink tank with a nude linen jacket.
While neon is most likely more of a passing trend, nude colors are more versatile and timeless. As such, you’d be better off opting for neutral investment pieces and limiting your neon purchases to accessories and fun fashion items.
Cycling Shorts with Blazers
This might seem like another unlikely pairing. But cycling shorts with a tailored blazer is a hot fashion 2019 trend that’s as unique as it is stylish.
Offering a sleek silhouette and a refreshing alternative to floaty dresses and puffy sleeves, this look is perfect for women who mean business.
Of course, while this look isn’t appropriate for either a serious meeting with your car accident attorney or for wearing to the yoga studio, it’s ideal for brunching with friends or strutting the streets.
If you prefer your summer clothes to be floaty and feminine, you’ll love this year’s obsession with puff sleeves.
Featuring on everything from broderie anglaise dresses to bright summer blouses, puff sleeves add a fun twist to all your best summer looks. Just remember to keep the rest of your look more low-key so as not to overdo it.
Love it or hate it, tie-dye is hot this summer. And we have to admit, nothing says festival fashion quite like a pair of cut-off denim shorts and a tie-dye t-shirt.
If you’re feeling creative you could DIY your own using an old white t-shirt. Or, for a more modern take on this look, go for a subdued tie-dye print on a maxi dress or a slinky camisole top.
