While the spring weather has finally graced us with its beauty, summer will be here before you know it. With rising temperatures on the horizon, it’s a great time to check out your wardrobe to see if you need an update. If you’re looking to make some changes, you’re in luck. We’ve got the rundown on some fashion trends that will give you a major boost when you’re heading to the beach or simply taking a walk in the park.
5. They were all yellow
It’s Big Bird’s favorite color, most people associate it with optimism, and it’s a major part of Chinese culture. Yellow has always been one of the most vibrant colors out there, and for the summer, it will be one of the go-to colors for the 2017 season. There are so many different shades of yellow to choose from, whether you’re rocking a lemon chiffon midi dress or leaving your date speechless in your royal yellow maxi dress. Celebrities are enamored with yellow including Viola Davis, who wore a yellow Michael Kors gown to the 2017 Golden Globes.
4. There’s just one more thing
Peter Columbo made trench coats cool to wear in the ’70s, and the fashion world still revives the trend every now and then. You’d think that summer would be the last time of year to wear one of these massive coats, but you’re wrong. There are various ways to rock a trench coat in hot weather, including wearing them with the sleeves rolled up or having denim cutoffs. Angelina Jolie, Taylor Swift, and Selena Gomez are a few major stars that have been photographed in trench coats recently.
3. That is waist clincher, my mama dear
While they have the same function as corsets, waist clinchers are bit more convenient. Unlike corsets, you can breathe easier, you feel more comfortable, and they cost less. They’re also becoming a fashion trend with their recent appearance at Paris Fashion Week. Kim Kardashian started using waist clinchers after she gave birth to her two children; her sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian also use them to get a slim figure.
2. Everyone knows they were robes of the Queen
If you’re not in the mood to find a glamorous dress or if you’re simply being a rebel, a common robe will do the trick. Beyonce helped bring awareness to this trend when she wore a $21,000 kimono at the 2017 NBA All-Star Game. Hilary Duff, Jessica Alba, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are also big fans of this garment.
1. Seaside rendezvous
Seaside stripes have been a fan favorite with many fashion designers for decades. The most common form of seaside stripe dress runs horizontally, but those who are a bit more conscious about their appearance can look just as fabulous with vertical or diagonal stripes. Celebrities such as Eva Longoria, Olivia Wilde, and Emma Stone are often seen rocking the look at various red carpet events.
