It’s now September, and summer will be coming to a close soon, and then it will be fall. That’s when you can finally wear all the fall trends that were announced like 6 months ago. There were lots of fantastic summer trends, and I thought I would share my favorites with you.
Crop tops were all the rage this summer! Starting May, they were everywhere…and are clearly going out of style soon, since all crop tops are going on sale in the clearance section of all stores. But I loved this trend a lot. I think it was a very summery trend, and I loved how it came with wearing high waisted shorts. And you can make the outfit anywhere from simple and basic to more fancy and sophisticated just based on the style of the crop top. Also, crop tops can be very cool and loose. I happen to live in Florida, so I still wear crop tops a lot, because it is very very hot. But on the red carpet you saw plenty of celebrities such as the beautiful Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens.
Floral prints were everywhere, whether it was floral skirts (I happen to own a floral skirt actually), floral dresses, floral shorts, floral shirts, everything floral! I love floral prints because they are very fun and make a statement in an outfit. Every single outfit has one piece that makes a statement, and I think when you wear a floral piece, it makes the statement. That way you don’t have to deal with trying to make a statement with huge necklaces and earrings and bracelets. Many celebrities got into wearing floral patterns this summer, such as Reese Witherspoon and Beyoncé.
I think fringe is so fun, especially if you have a purse with fringe on it, it’s fun to shake it around and play with it. And summer is when all the clothes are supposed to be fun! Also, it makes a statement in an outfit just like floral patterns do. Celebrities such as Shailene Woodley and Lucy Hale were seen rocking it a few months ago.
I am really hoping to see these trends back on the runaway for the 2015 summer trends, because I feel like they scream “SUMMER!” While I do like to stay trendy and keep up with the latest and greatest, I may still be rocking the high waisted shorts and crop top look for a while, along with floral skirts.
Now if you loved all these summer trends, I highly recommend you hit up clearance sales to get some new items and save them for next year because everything is way marked down, up to 70% at some places. So make sure to go to places such as Aeropostale, American Eagle, Charlotte Russe, Forever 21, Rue 21, etc. They have things as low as 5 dollars!
I just wanted to share some of my favorite summer trends with you all, just as a way to wrap up the summer season, and leading into the fall I will be posting about the fall trends this year.
