Students Can Adhere to Summertime Style With a Few Tips
I’m on a roll with giving you guys the down-low on summer style, so why stop now? We’re only a few weeks away from Memorial Day, which consists of poolside barbecues and outdoor fun with family and friends. For most Arkansans, it’s the day that marks the arrival of summer. So with no time to waste, with some guidance from glamourmagazine.co.uk and instyle.com, let’s see what’s poppin’ in the fashion world.
The first trend that reigns now: print patterns of all sorts. Polka dots, stripes and florals are all in right now, and these busy patterns give off a fun, flirty flair while still embracing the classic trends of summer. Wearing patterns is a sure way to get noticed.
The trick to wearing patterns is to accessorize lightly. Make sure they blend well with the colors of the outfit and supplement the color scheme. For example, if a necklace is too bright and bulky, it will be distracting and take away from the pattern, which is never the goal. Rompers and maxis are an easy and simple way to bring patterns into your wardrobe. They don’t require matching bottoms, so all of the focus is on accessorizing.
Trend number two: neons. Yep, they’re still here! In a previous column I discussed the importance of color in wardrobes, and I definitely called it with the neons.
Whether it’s a sheer orange top over a cami or a bold blue dress complete with nude pumps, neons have evolved into a respected fashion trend and have made an awesome comeback over the last year. So don’t be scared, get your ‘90s on this summer.
For those still rockin’ the fedora, it’s time to think bigger. Oversized hats make the cut as trend number three. This classic accessory can complement many different styles and outfits. Sundresses, long-legged rompers, mini-skirts and tanks, you name it. Big hats keep the sun out of the way and make your summer outfits that much classier.
This summer, make sure to spend time outside to have fun and look good in the sun!
