The warmer weather is on its way and it’s time to unleash that summer wardrobe. Now would be a great time to start putting together some stylish looks and incorporating some of the season’s hottest trends. Spotlight presents to you some top fashion trends for summer 2013!
Splash of Colours
Summer is undoubtedly the season of colours. Bold neon colours have been hot on the fashion scene for quite some time now but not everyone feels comfortable pulling off these shades. Nonetheless, we say forget the pastels and open your arms to bright and happy shades of lemon yellow, cobalt blue, fuchsia pink and emerald green that are perfect for this summer. These shades are not as bold as neon nor are they as soft as pastels, but bright enough to add personality to your entire look!
Oversized shades are IN! These sunglasses have become trendy for those with large AND small faces. From Nargis Fakhri’s bumblebee shades to Bipasha’s catwoman frames, choose a pair in funky colour and find the shades that suit you best and beat the glare of the sun!
With so many styles to choose from, shorts are a must for the summer season. Whether you have long legs or short, are skinny or curvy, there’s sure to be a style to suit you. My favourite? Denim micros from Cotton On!
Personally, I am a sucker for high platforms and wedges. This summer opt for something crazy in the shoe department. Bright and bold patterns, decorative designs, prints and metallic colors are apt for the spring/summer season.
Above are my favorite wedges for the upcoming summer:
1. TOPSHOP WHAMM Espadrille Leather Wedges
2. ALDO Rinks Floral Wedge Sandals
3. ASOS HANDLE Wedges
4. Senso Diffusion Santana Shoe in Pink Patent
5.BOTTEGA VENETA Karung and metallic leather sandals
6. Isabel Marant Zora leather wedge sandals
7. OSCAR DE LA RENTA Dakota wedge sandals
Handbags are indispensable accessories for women. This summer, I would go for woven handbags. When it comes to bags, I say opt for fabrics with a distinct texture. They are stylish and very different!
Now that summer is here, it’s time to get all the funky accessories out! Above are just a few of the jazzy accessories that have been catching my eye lately. These are trendy, delicate, feminine and are of sorbet hued colors. You Like?
The great thing about any color in the orange family is that it instantly adds warmth, whether your skin is pale or dark. If you’re unsure, try either a pink-ish coral or a lighter peach — both universally flattering, and easy transitions into the orange trend. Perfect for the summer, aint’t it?
So tell me girls – what’s your fashion mantra for Summer 2013 ?
