Fashion’s a fun thing, but we’d be lying if we said that it never gets complicated. Not only do you need to stay on top of the industry and its latest trends, but you also have to keep your wardrobe versatile and practical enough to get you through the day. On top of that, you have to find a way to style it all so it fits your body shape. Well, that’s exactly what we’re here for. If you want to know what some of the hottest trendy pieces for the summer are and how to wear them with ease, you’ve come to the right place.
Finally! The flattering jeans are back and we’re overjoyed. Nothing against skinny jeans, but some variety was much-needed, especially after so many shopping trips where you struggled to find anything that wasn’t ultra-slim and form-fitting. Straight-leg, cigarette kind of jeans are very flattering, and they do give the outfit a very chic, casual vibe.
You can style them with loose, silky blouses by tying them around your waist, but you can also keep it very minimalist – old school logo tee, a pair of loafers, and a messy ponytail. This kind of denim is really perfect for vintage looks, and if you want to play around with masculine cuts, then we recommend pairing them up with a boxy blazer and a pair of Oxfords.
Girly white dresses
There’s just something enchanting about white dresses. They make a person look radiant and almost delicate, and for ladies who don’t like sharp cuts, this could be the perfect summer piece. The trick with it is to actually keep accessories minimal and not go overboard with colourful jewellery. You want to retain that timeless simplicity of the look, so pick a straw hat and a pair of leather sandals or ballet flats and you’ll be ready for a summer day. If you want to make it a little more glam, pick an off-the-shoulder cut and slip on a pair of heels.
Sunglasses have always been a staple summer accessory. We love them because not only do they look super stylish, but according to Australian research, they are also the key to protecting our eyes from UV rays (not to mention they can prevent crow’s feet around the eyes).
Being practical and stylish is simply the Aussie way of living in their sun-filled country, and polarized sunglasses in Sydney are a popular way of accessorizing pretty much anything. What kind of a frame you pick will depend on your general style. The micro trend goes well with athleisure and casual looks, but if your wardrobe is very feminine, then you should grab a pair of cat-eye shades. They give off a very French, sexy chic vibe, and will suit almost any face shape.
Bring the beach with you when you’re running errands around the town with this cool handbag trend. Straw purses are no longer there just for your oversized towel and sunscreen lotion, they’re urban, trendy, and incredibly easy to match with almost any summer look. All your printed dresses, all your denim shorts and tees, even your business casual get-ups will all look great with the addition of a cute little straw bag. Pick designs that incorporate sailor stripes or handles made of cloth for an even breezier, beachy look.
High-waisted anything is usually great at giving your body more of an hourglass shape, and miniskirts are the perfect summer way to look hot. Pair them with a crop top for a youthful look or tuck a nude-coloured blouse into it and you’ll immediately make it more high-fashion. We recommend that you pick a skirt in a poppin’ colour if you want to really bring attention to your sexy legs.
Satin is trendy, but what on earth do you do with it? Well, the easiest way to incorporate it into your outfit is through camisole tops. Pair this with your pantsuit, or simply with a maxi dress and you’ve got another very feminine look on your hands. Another way to make this trend easy is to find satin sandals. Wear platform sandals with your jeans and you’ll really be giving them a more elegant vibe.
And lastly, remember to make sure all of these trends have a personal touch. Combine them with your signature pieces and your favourite lipstick and you’ll look super fashionable and stay true to your own style at the same time.
