Welcoming a new season, particularly summer is always a lot of fun because it means a fresh opportunity to dabble in a few of the latest trends. Dressing for the warmer weather has always been a favourite of mine because it involves lots of beautiful lightweight textures such as linen and cotton, fun silhouettes, all while incorporating bold accessories including super on trend footwear and jewellery. If you’re looking to update your current wardrobe, consider investing in the following pieces.
Puff sleeved dress
Puffed sleeves are a little whimsical and oh-so pretty which makes them ideal for this relaxed time of year. Whether featured on a dress or on a top, they instantly add a feminine vibe to any look.
Breathable linen is made for summer. And you won’t be hard pressed to find it everywhere. Use it as a go-to for scorching hot days or when you’re headed to the beach and want something that will transition easily to sundowners.
Square toe sandals
Bottega Veneta made them a thing so don’t be surprised if you see square toe sandals everywhere. They’re so of the moment that you’ll instantly transform any outfit with the addition of a pair of these.
If you’re going to wear a straw bag, summer is the time to do it. It’s the kind of relaxed accessory that will finish any outfit.
Animal print never really goes away so definitely rock it this summer and beyond. Think a skirt or dress or if you want to wear it a little more subtly, opt for accessories such as a hair scarf or shoes.
This 90s fave is back! The great thing about the bucket hat is that it’s often super easy to fold up and pop in your bag which means you’ll never be caught out without sun protection this summer. There are all different kinds of iterations from designer to chain store, so go ahead and take your pick.
There’s a huge trend for clashing prints, and it’s being heavily featured on summer dresses. There’s something quite fresh about big bold prints on a maxi dress which is just made for easy breezy dressing.
These long length shorts are popping up on Insta feeds everywhere and are a nice alternative to cut offs. They look polished and elegant when worn with a cami or tee and elevated slides.
You may remember anklets from your teen years and they’re making a comeback this season. The ideal way to wear it? A fine chain worn with your fave sandals and a perfect pedi.
Teva style sandals
These sandals were once synonymous with utilitarian travel footwear but lo and behold they’ve had a bit of a stylish makeover, with Chanel even doing a version that’s no doubt on wish lists everywhere.
