Style Saturday | Summer Style AspirationsSaturday, May 17, 2014
Summer is just around the corner and I am praying the weather warms up soon! It is still pretty chilly here and the rain has been non-stop so in order to bring a little sunshine into my life I have been creating a summer style board on Pinterest and I thought that I would share the top 5 spring/summer trends that I will be rocking this year.
I really love a feminine silhouette and summer is the perfect time for me to bring that out, during the colder months I am so concerned with staying warm that I abandon all thoughts of style but when summer rolls around I am dying to put on a dress. I have never been a fan of shorts, much preferring a skirt and top or a flowy dress and my style tends to lean more towards feminine with a boho touch.
The Statement Pencil Skirt: While during the day I tend to be more on the casual side if the need arises for a more professional look I will head straight for a pencil skirt. I think the pencil skirt is one of those key wardrobe pieces that can completely change your appearance, it is chic, sleek and feminine and is incredibly flattering on the female figure. This year I am obsessed with the idea of a statement patterned skirt with a plain top and a pop of glamour with a necklace.
The Maxi Skirt: I love a good flowly skirt in the summer and the maxi has to be my favourite. You can pair a million different things with a neutral maxi skirt and create a completely unique look. It is one of the easiest ways to try to trends and patterns while still looking chic and put together.
The Floral Pattern: I have been completely sucked in by all of the gorgeous florals available this season. Even the simplest of outfits can be jazzed up with a fun pop of colour or a romantic pattern of roses. My favourite way to wear this trend right now is with a dress or a simple cami.
The Midi Skirt: Can we just stop and appreciate how stunning all of those ladies look? The midi is a relatively new trend that has taken over the fashion world. It is incredibly feminine and dainty and very reminiscent of the 50's. Whether you chose a structured skirt or a loose flowy pleat, every midi skirt just screams sophistication. The just below the knee length is something that can be worn by everyone, even us shorter girls, just throw on a pair of heels and you are good to go.
The Lingerie Inspired Cami: Now this is my favourite trend of the moment, I just love how a simple silk or lace camisole looks balanced with a blazer or a flowy skirt. You can throw the cami over a lace bra and you have a chic and sexy look while still looking put together in the hot weather.
What trends have you been admiring for this upcoming summer season? Are you a dresses and skirts kind of gal or do you like to keep it easy with shorts and a tee?
