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

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.

Update Your Wardrobe for Spring

Now that the dreary days of winter seem to be mostly behind us, it is time to begin thinking about updating your wardrobe, putting aside your cold weather go-to pieces for some new spring essentials. Luckily, many of the fashion trends this spring will make it easy to incorporate pieces that you are likely to already own, whilst others are classic looks that are worth investing in, as they are bound to find a long-term home in your wardrobe. OROGOLD Cosmetics helps you update your wardrobe for Spring.

Denim
Almost everybody owns something made of denim, be it a pair of jeans or a jacket. This year, denim will be going upmarket, with many pieces featuring intricate stitching and other design details. If you are looking to add a new pair of jeans to your wardrobe, look for a high waist flared style, or even a boot-cut. For those who are fans of denim, now is the time to experiment with other denim garments, such as dresses, culottes and dungarees.

Flats
Women around the world could not have been happier when they saw that flat, comfortable shoes were once again on trend for this spring. Flat does not have to mean boring, and there are a whole range of styles out there, from loafers to brogues.

Shirts
There were such a variety of shirts seen on runways for this spring, from gingham to polo shirts. The checked pattern is always an easy one to incorporate into your look, and can be worn in a variety of ways. White is a color that will be popular this spring, and a crisp white shirt makes a beautifully understated impression. Choose one that has other interesting elements, such as lace, or a translucent fabric, to really stand out from the crowd.

The 70s
Another big trend this spring is the 70s, with many different looks that you can add to your wardrobe. From jewel-toned fringed shirts to chocolate suede, you can add a sense of the 70s to your style just from the fabrics that your clothes are made from. One great 70s inspired item is the pencil skirt, which can be worn during the day as well as dressed up at night. ORO GOLD recommends you to choose one that is made from high quality fabric and make sure you try sitting down in it before you buy it, as the fabric needs to flatter you no matter what you are doing.

Trench Coats
Trench coats always seem to make their way back into the spotlight, mostly due to the way that designers can easily modernize them with different details and fabrics. A light trench coat is a great way to stay warm but stylish this spring, and you will find them in a variety of shades and prints. For something a little different, look for one that is made of a light and draping fabric, such as a silky wool, which you can wear over loose trousers for a luxurious yet relaxed evening look.

Spring is a great time of the year to add some new styles to your wardrobe, giving it a fresh burst of life just in time for the arrival of warmer weather. When buying new pieces, think about which ones would work well with items you already own, as well as what would work best on a daily basis when incorporated into your own personal style.
