Summer is coming and it’s time for bright, bold and eye-catching colors that will bring fun to everything you wear. Think of hot beaches and sunny weather, think of vibrant streets full of girls in flowy skirts, think of parties and delicious cocktail drinks. Summer is all about fun, it’s about vivid colors and good mood. Pour yourself a drink and enjoy the heated atmosphere as we look into the popular trends for this year.
Pink And Purple Mixes
From soft dogwood to muted purple, many fashion designers, especially Zac Posen and Valentino, are playing around with various shades of pink and purple. However, the color that is most obviously dominating the runways is fuchsia, so if you want to be trendy, having a light jacket, or a big handbag in this color can really make you stand out. Since it’s such an eye-catching color you may wish to stick to statement pieces instead of having your entire outfit in bright fuchsia. However, if you think you can pull it off, by all means, go ahead. Bravery is always encouraged.
Hair trends are also shifting towards beautiful rose gold colors, so consider scheduling an appointment with your hair colorist and asking them to transform your hair into this bold style that will make you look beautiful regardless of what you’re wearing.
2017 is all about simple, almost demure dresses in bright, shocking colors. Not all shades of yellow work for all skin tones, so be wary of mustard and cold shades that can make you look washed out. If you have dark hair, a yellow headband or a pair of earrings can be just the thing to make your look pop, so consider getting a few accessories, especially if you prefer your outfits to be in more simple, muted colors. However, you should definitely consider finding yourself the perfect yellow dress. Just imagine walking into a room and instantly making it brighter with your happy looking outfit. Pair that with an off-white, or brown shoe and you’ve got a winning look.
When it comes to makeup, summer can get a little boring. It’s always the same thing, bronzed skin and coral lipstick. But this year we’re turning to something that’s a lot more fun, if for no other reason, then for the fact that it’s different. Pastels are definitely popular this year, so experimenting with the soft colors can give you the perfect gentle look. If soft isn’t your thing, consider doing something fun, like white, or lilac eyeliner instead of your regular black. Mix and match and instead of heavy contouring, rely on strobing techniques to make your face look fresh. The holographic trend is still going on strong, so it’s definitely time for a glamorous glow.
Soft denim, aqua and lapis are the most popular shades of blue for this year, so if you enjoy this soothing color, you’re in luck. Denim blues are famously easy to combine with just about any color, so getting a few blue pieces is a good investment. From Louis Vuitton and Gucci, to Marchesa and Alexander McQueen, you’re in for a real treat as these designers dominate the runways.
When it comes to work-appropriate attire we tend to go with navy, but imagine rocking a lapis or royal blue suit jacket as you walk into the office. This is definitely a good way to bring some fun to your workplace without going overboard.
Greens are very in this year, so from yellowy-green shades to the more subdued kale green, this year is all about being reminded of health and nature. Since ‘80s retro look is also making a comeback, you could make the perfect evening outfit by pairing the classic ‘80s staples such as big shoulders and cinched waists with your favorite shade of green. Green bags are also a big hit, so pack all your essentials, or maybe throw on a kale green scarf to give any day outfit a bit of a kick.
If you’re never sure that you can work a certain trend, don’t worry, black and white are popular this year, even though they might be a bit of a boring choice compared to the explosion of colors that are currently walking down the runways. The best thing you can do is simply to experiment and introduce small elements to your regular, everyday outfits to make them look more fun and chic.
