Hello, my amazing readers!
Summer has officially arrived and a new season gives way for an all new wardrobe! Vancouver has already experienced some heat waves and we’ve already seen the summer fashion trends making their way onto the streets.
Normally, I focus on female fashion trends but I don’t want to exclude my male readers and let’s be honest I love shopping for both genders. So here are my top picks for summer fashion trends 2016.
1) Off the shoulder everything!
Ladies, off the shoulder dresses and blouses are back in style in a BIG way! I am talking about Maxi dresses, short dresses and even shirts. I love this trend because it really helps to showoff your collarbone and shoulders which gives off a slimming look. Here is a dream outfit for the summer I put together with a little help from my friends at polyvore.com:
2) Countless Shades of Grey
Gentlemen, Grey is the color of summer 2016 if the runways are any indication. I will admit it is a little odd to have grey as a trending “color” for the summer as we usually see more pops of vibrant colors for men but this year things have taken a turn in favor of the solid and timeless shades of grey! ( and I have to say , I love it!)
3) The Slip Dress
The slip dress is everything this year and most certainly no longer considered an undergarment. The silky and dreamy fabrics of these dresses make the look exceptionally glam for those summer nights! This is one trend that is not just here for the summer but is bound to carry over into the fall.
4) Gentlemen’s Emerald Green
The royal color of Emerald green isn’t one that is traditionally worn by men but this year all that is about to change. I love this look because it is very complimentary with the previous trend mentions; grey colors for men. I think it adds just the appropriate pop of color for our gentlemen this summer.
Let me know what you guys think of the looks!
