Now that summer is upon us, it is the perfect time to take a look through your wardrobe and put together a few go-to outfits for the season. To ensure that all of your looks are as current as can be, here are some of the hottest summer fashion trends to keep in mind.

Retro-Kinis
Retro-inspired swimwear is bang on trend for this summer, so be sure to keep this in mind when shopping for new swimwear. Whether you opt for a feminine one-piece or a high-waisted bikini bottom with a bandeau top, make sure that the style that you pick also works well with your own body shape and flatters your figure.

Gingham
Thanks to designers such as Altuzarra and J.W Anderson, gingham has gone from being preppy to trendy and is a great alternative to the stripes that are usually seen everywhere in the spring and summer months. This is a timeless pattern and works extremely well when styled into a casual outfit.

Statement Drop Earrings
Statement jewellery has been making headlines recently, and this is set to continue throughout the summer. When it comes to earrings, drop styles are what you should be going for, whether they be graphic metal shapes or elongated, elegant drops. Just make sure that the style you choose is large, bold, and makes a statement.

The Wrap Dress
The wrap dress always tends to make a comeback during the summer months, and this is because it is such a versatile style that is absolutely perfect for the season. This dress can be worn with just about anything, whether it be thrown over a bikini as a beach cover-up, or worn over jeans for a casual city look.

Micro Florals
Just like with stripes, florals are another print that always makes a comeback in the warmer months, but, rather than featuring big, bold, graphic florals, this season’s prints are micro and delicate. From Marco de Vincenzo to Ulla Johnson, the gorgeous, feminine micro florals that are being created are absolutely perfect for special events, as well as worn casually on a daily basis.

Slides

When it comes to summer shoes, there are so many options out there, but slides always grow in popularity once the weather turns warmer. Whether this may be because of how easy and convenient they are, or how cool and breezy they are in the heat, make sure that you have a pair of go-to slides in your wardrobe. There is so much choice when it comes to the actual style that you choose, so feel free to experiment with designs that work well with your personal style, from embellished mules to colorful ballet flats.

The warm summer months are perfect for experimenting with different looks, and sticking to some of the main trends for the season will help to tie all of your outfits together while keeping them looking fresh and modern. From a classic wrap dress to a retro-inspired bikini, these are the pieces that you will want in your wardrobe this season.
