Summer 2016 Trends

Spring is on its way out of the door to bring brighter and hotter days. While living in Florida almost equals to a year long Summertime, this does not mean that we need to rely on flip flops and shorts only to step out of our homes and air conditioner commodity. Au contraire, this is a perfect challenge to look outside of your boxΒ  when it comes to your wardrobe. This time is the right one to experiment with colors, textures and prints, prints and more prints!
White Shirt Reinvention

Basic white button down got a whole lotta makeover, from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Delpozo and Zac Posen. Take this to your advantage and pair one of this fabulous shirts with a mini skirt, throw it on top of a sundress or buy an large size shirt and wear it as a dress with a wide belt cinched at the waist

Pleats, Pleats, Pleats!


Designers like Altazurra, Boss and Proenza Schouler demonstrated everyone that a tinier and tighter knife pleat is the way to go this summer time. Because of this, pleats become usable by all body shapes and sizes since the pleats are very minimal. Opt for a midi length, sleeveless dress for a night out or a bright colored pleated kaftan to hit the beach and even run your weekend errands.

Net is Where is At

Net fabric is the perfect solution for the hot summer days, and designers like Marchesa, Alexander Wang and Tome made that statement true with their beautiful net recreations. Whether you want to use this fabric during the daytime or even at nighttime, the key relies in the colors and accessories to recreate the perfect look.

Oh La Lingerie

There is nothing better than wearing lingerie all day and for this summertime is totally acceptable to do so outside of the comfort of your home. Designers like Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein and Givenchy brought these pieces out of the bedroom for the upcoming season. Opt for a silk and lace pants and top and throw a sleeveless vest in a contrasting color for the perfect date night attire. If you wish to make this trend a morning time piece, go for a pastel color silk dress and a pair of sneakers in the same color.

Orange is the New Black

Nothing screams summertime more than bright and bold colors, which is why orange is the main color of this summer season. While orange can be considered a pretty loud color, that did not stop Altuzarra or Dion Lee from using it in their collections. Whether you want to rock a neon orange sundress, or a tangerine jumpsuit, make sure to keep this color in your closet throughout the rest of the year, because you will be using it in the upcoming seasons.
