Your travel plans might still be put on hold this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay at home and play dress up. The weather’s too warm to continue living in your sweatpants and it’s finally time to bring out your summer wardrobe. Expect a lot of colors and skin-baring clothing for the hottest fashion trends this season.
Sleeveless tops, specifically ones that are haltered or have cutouts, will be every other influencer’s go-to outfit this summer. This silhouette was more popular during the 60s and 70s, but 2021 is all about throwing it back. It accentuates the curves and is a step up from your basic necklines.
Speaking of throwing it back, retro, funky-printed clothing is dethroning the usual stripes and polka dots. Vintage floral, tie-dye swirls and other abstract prints will be all over shirts, tops, and dresses — you name it. It’s bold and eye-catching, and a fun piece to add to your wardrobe.
A lot of people are going to continue wearing knitted tops even when it’s warmer out. Crochet tank tops and front-tie cardigans are light enough for the summer and look cute when paired with loose-fitting jeans. Find a local artist that can customize a piece for you if you want something more unique.
Layer it on top of your cutout top, crochet tank top, or a swimsuit and you’ve got a summer-ready look. For a casual day out, half-tuck them into your shorts or tie them at the ends. If it’s long enough, you could even get away with wearing it as a dress; just add a belt at the waist.
Capri leggings are jeans are having a moment, according to the Lyst. Searches for these styles of pants have increased since Hailey Bieber was seen wearing them. Aside from capris, searches for cropped trousers and jeans have also increased. Basically, any bottoms that aren’t full-length are in.
Of course, your outfits won’t be complete if you didn’t have a pair of sunglasses to match. Tiny sunglasses that sit on your nose are so last year. Get yourself an oversized one, preferably with a square frame, and put together your perfect summer wardrobe.
