With the days becoming longer and warmer, we can finally begin preparing for summer. The perfect start to a great summer season is feeling confident in what you’re wearing, as all of your positive emotions begin with you! There is an abundance of new, bold, and colorful fashion trends as we jump into warmer weather. On the fashion radar specifically are halter cropped tops, strappy silhouettes, lots of cutouts, tie-dye, crochet, and a ton of bright and fun patterns. No matter what you decide to wear, however, let it be what YOU feel the best in. With that being said, let’s jump into the style forecast for this summer!
As the year has gone on, we’re already seeing halter tops absolutely everywhere, and in so many different styles. Like a lot of 90s fashion, halter tops are yet again making a fullblown comeback! Wrap-around halter tops are especially in right now, and you can achieve this look at home by using your favorite long scarf! Next up, strappy silhouettes are already one of the biggest trends of the year, and this will go well into the summer. This includes not only strappy tops, but also pants and skirts that have straps around the waist. This trend is definitely something worth investing in, as the style is super versatile and can be worn with nearly everything. Not to mention, it turns the average pants and miniskirts into unique and fun looks.
Cut-outs are another major trend right now, which is perfect for letting the breeze hit your skin on hot summer days. This trend is especially popular with dresses that have cut-outs on the sides, and can definitely bring flare to any look for your night out. Also, make sure to stock up on your crochet! Crochet EVERYTHING is beginning to take off, and will be a wardrobe staple for the summer, especially with dresses and halters. Summer 2021 seems to be all about fun and colorful patterns, and this includes tie-dye! The pattern is being used beautifully in dresses, skirts, and tops, and is a definite need for your wardrobe! I’ve absolutely loved seeing it so far with a watercolor appearance, especially with darker colors.
After seeing neutrals and lighter colors for so long, unique and bright patterns are for sure going to be one of the most refreshing trends of the summer. Kitchy florals, and specifically hibiscus prints, are going to be seen everywhere in the following months. Boldly colored checkerboard, watercolors, and wavy prints will be all the rage as well. As for accessories, mini purses and clutches are the way to go, and opt for brighter colored bags to color-coordinate with your outfits! Larger, shield sunglasses are taking off right now as well. For jewelry, the more colorful, the better! Lots of gold, pearls, and colorful beads will be seen this summer, and in a lot of cases, they will be worn together. Stacking a ton of different pieces together is the way to go.
Overall, the styles we’ll be seeing this season will be a lot of 90s and early 2000s trends (that’s the best fashion, isn’t it?), so that’s a great place to start when looking for your summer style inspiration. When it comes to this summer, be as creative as your heart desires — it’ll be a fun fashion season without a doubt!
