HELLO SUNSHINE! Alright. Alright. So maybe the PA summer hasn't been the best lately, but that doesn't mean you can't still flaunt around in the rainy weather in your best clothes! Five major trends have been popping up this season, and I'm here to help you bring out the inner fashionista - rain or shine. Your beloved intern has done all the heavy lifting and research for you. So, kick up your feet, and relax a while. You’ll be thankful for this rest when you’re shopping ‘til you drop for these new trends.
To kick off the warmer temperatures, shed some layers and show some skin! Exposed midriffs are HUGE, and can be so versatile to fit anyone’s body and their styles! Throw on a bralette with your favorite pair of vintage Levi shorts for a super casual day by the pool, or rock a leather jacket or blazer for an edgy look, perfect for your girl’s night out.
Speaking of a girl’s night out, let’s take it back to Cyndi Lauper and her hit single, “Girls Just Want to Have Fun.” It’s back to the 80s! What’s better than high shine, full sleeves, padded shoulders, and jumpsuits? Absolutely nothing (except maybe a really really good cup of coffee). Break out those metallic, sequined tops and iridescent textured sweaters from those space bags you have stored in the basement and get going!
Throwing it even FURTHER back, we have the rebirth of the Victorian Era! Looking for the perfect outfit for your summer romance? Turn to the delicate and amorous prints and styles from the turn of the 20th Century. All the ruffles, flounces, and voluminous shoulders will have you looking like a real-life princess. Low, off the shoulder necklines and intricate, elegant chest designs will be perfect for the warmer months.
Last but not least, we have two classic styles that you probably already have sitting in your closet! Prints, especially stripes and florals, create a classic yet bold look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with these patterns! Mix and match an outfit perfectly tailored to your style! You can wear them on their own or opt to pair sailor stripes with a muted floral. There are so many combinations out there that will give you a one-of-a-kind look, even in something as basic as stripes.
We can’t wait to try out these trends for spring and summer, and hope you feel the same! Get a head-start and pop on over to our Etsy shop to find the perfect pieces that are on trend and will make you feel like you're fresh off the runway! I've even included some down below to get your fashion transformation started!
