It finally seems as if the Chicago weather might actually be turning toward summer temperatures (though we still have to figure this whole “sunshine” thing out) so I thought it was time to talk summer fashion.
Here are a few of the trends I’ll be wearing as the summer starts.
Summer Black-This might be the easiest, most wearable trend ever. After several seasons of white being a trend its time to break out your LBD again! The best think about this trend is that there really is a little black dress for every shape and every occasion.
In fact, you probably already have one in your closet. But, just in case you want to buy something new, I’d check out this DVF dress on ShopBop. I love the drop waist and you can wear this day or night depending on how you style it.
Stripes- The obvious way to wear this trend is nautical, and you really can’t go wrong with a little striped sweater or t-shirt. However, if you want to do something different I think that this Hive and Honey dress on Piperlime is a great choice. Not quite stripes, not quite chevron but very modern.
Floral Prints- Florals are everywhere this year. If you think that you’re not a floral girl you can take a riff from the more graphic versions seen on the runway like this Asos one that mixes a kaleidoscope like pattern with a little black color blocking to toughen it up.
Skater Skirts-This one is from Bloomingdales but I also saw quite a few at Urban Outfitters the other day that were a little more casual.
