From bright and bold colors to the all-important pieces that can make your closet that much happier, we're giving you the inside scoop on this summer's must-have trends. Let's get started!
1. Floral Maxis And Midis
When you think about breaking out your summer wardrobe for the year, you can't help but get excited to put on your pretty floral prints once again. Floral maxi and midi dresses have reigned supreme for many summer fashion seasons, and these printed, flowing dresses are standing strong at the top of the 2018 trending season.
2. Bright Colors
Nothing screams summer more than the vibrant and bold colors that make the season all the more bright. It also appears that no colors are off limits this season, as many designers have made signature pieces in stunning yellows, reds, greens, and purples that will turn heads.
We have been seeing many pieces making their debut with a plethora of different patchwork and checkered print patterns. From dresses to even a staple piece in the closet, like a chic blazer, you can't go wrong with one bit of patchwork in your summer wardrobe.
4. Feathers And Fringe
We are also seeing many designs that are exquisitely detailed with fun accents of faux feathers and even fringe as well. Add some flair to your wardrobe with one of these staple pieces to make your summer one to remember.
5. Puffed Sleeves
We are going back to the '80s for this trend that has taken the industry by storm this season, as the bigger and puffier sleeves are making a comeback. Whether it's on a blouse, blazer, or even a beautiful midi dress, the more dramatic sleeve is captivating the eye.
6. Pastel Colors
While we mentioned the punch that the bright colors are packing in the fashion industry, we have also seen many beautiful designs from the other side of the color spectrum -- Pastels. In fact, one of the more popular pastel colors that we have seen from various designers has been that delicate lilac purple color.
7. A Day At The Beach
There is something about summer that brings out our playful side, and the fashion industry has taken this feeling one step further by bringing beachwear to everyday wear. With bold prints, fun colors, and an airy feel, many of the pieces we have seen from designers take this beach themed attire to a whole new level.
We have been seeing many different trends for summer begin to make their debut as the season goes underway, but we feel that these seven are the trends that will make your summer 2018 one you will never forget!
