The modern woman of today plays various roles, and therefore, she needs different outfits to achieve a suitable look for each occasion. And in today’s fast-paced life, she also looks forward to attaining a perfect balance between elegance and functionality.
One efficient method to do this is to add essential, versatile clothing pieces that aid you to create a wide range of outfits and looks quickly and effortlessly. Following, Pouted lifestyle magazine presents you with ten essential items and ideas to style them inspired by the latest fashion trends of spring/summer.
1 Trench coats
A trench coat is a classic, iconic piece that your wardrobe should never be empty from. It possesses timeless elegance and charm that make you look gorgeous with the simplest effort. Opt for a light one for springs and summers. A basic tip to consider if you want to wear a trench atop of a skirt or dress is to make sure the hemline of the bottom piece is shorter or equal in length with the coat. A women’s trench coat could also be worn with pants or jeans and a sleeveless top.
Needless to say, dresses are essential items in a lady’s wardrobe. They have been growing quite versatile over the years to answer the needs of the modern woman. Today, you can find a suitable dress for any occasion. For an evening out, consider glitter, sequined, or laced dresses, depending on the occasion. For casual wear, go for sundresses, ruffled and maxi dresses of boho, breezy vibes. To work, wear a shirt dress or skater dress. You can top the sleeveless dresses with elegant blazers to make them look more formal. Plus, among the trendy dresses for women, this summer, are monochrome polka-dotted and animal printed dresses.
Tops are a primary component of a lot of outfits that you can’t simply do without them. Many designs and styles are available to pick from. Crop, laced, ruffled, and one-shoulder tops are trending this summer. Add a variety of tops to your wardrobe: casual, boho, formal, and evening to suit different outfits and occasions. Plus, your clothing set should include plain as well as printed and patterned tops; floral, tie-dye, polka-dots, and animal prints continue as massive trends.
4 Biker shorts
Biker shorts showed up on the spring/summer fashion runways, and ladies have invited them into their wardrobes. Wearing a pair with a blazer has been quite popular. If you are into the trend, we encourage you to add more than one to your summer clothing set. Do not stick to plain shorts; animal prints, checks, and strips are trendy too. Patterned biker shorts would also look stylish paired with a sleeveless shirt or off-shoulder top.
5 Cardigans and kimonos
Cardigans and kimonos are resilient pieces that can be adapted to a wide variety of outfits and styles. Light summer cardigans add breezy and boho accents to your look. You could top one over biker shorts and a crop top or a sundress for a casual look, or pair it with pants and shirt for a light formal style. A floral kimono would also be stunning with a short skirt and crop top.
Blazers are essential items in the wardrobe of any lady generally, and working women and businesswomen especially. They are lighter than suits, and therefore more suitable for summer. Add plain pieces for a formal look, and floral ones for more breezy, casual occasions. You can also try crop blazers; they are quite stylish too.
7 Animal printed Skirts
Animal prints were adopted excessively and dramatically in the fashion shows whether for the cold or hot season. Models appeared wearing animal prints from head to toe. However, if you are not into extra boldness, an animal printed skirt is an excellent way to adapt the trend into your everyday look. Pair it with a plain shirt and maybe a blazer. If you are into the look, add a couple of animal print types: leopard, tiger, zebra, etc.
8 Jumpsuits and playsuits
Jumpsuits and playsuits are comfortable and easy-to-wear outfits, and therefore are perfect items to add to your summer wardrobe. Go for different designs and patterns: off-shoulder, one-shoulder, floral, striped, etc. Pick bright summer colors; coral and lavender are prominent color trends this summer.
9 Bucket hats
In summer, hats are not complementary accessories that guarantee you a cool look. They are essential to protect your head from the glare of the sun. Bucket hats are an excellent choice if you want to combine functionality with stylishness. They have been officially back as a retro trend from the 90s this summer. Add some plain and printed ones to match your different outfits.
10 Shoes and Bags
Shrunken bags made a considerable presence in the fashion shows of the hot season. They look beautiful but not practical. Maybe mini bags are a better alternative to applying the trend; they are small but would still offer more space than tiny shrunken bags. If you prefer bigger sizes look for a stunning beach bag; they look gorgeous and breezy and have been trendy this summer. Also, fringes and feathers have been significant fashion trends for the past few years. So, an elegant bag or shoes with fringe or feather accents is an excellent method to apply the trend. Sneakers are also an essential footwear item; pair them with a sundress, and you will have a quite trendy outfit. And if you are looking forward to adding embellished shoes, go for a crystal-adorned pair, for crystal, and metallic embellishment is a shoe trend this season. Flats are also timeless footwear that none of us can do without in summers.
We hope that you have found new outfit ideas to apply that satisfy your tastes. Enjoy happy summer.
