It’s officially Summer *cue the air horns* and I’m excited to be collaborating with Pretty Little Things to share 3 trends I’m looking forward to this season. Summer is THE best time to try out a fun trend, if for no other reason than your social calendar will probably be packed and you’ll want to make your own little style statement everywhere you go. I’m not a trendy person per se, but I DO like dabbling with them from time to time. 3 trends that I’m looking forward to playing with are black + white prints, neon accents, and clear accessories.
Black + White Prints
Wearing prints is nothing new, but when I look in my closet, I tend to always go for color (usually a floral or stripe). When I saw this Dalmation Print Midi Dress I knew I had to have it; the length is perfect for my height, and the material is “breathable”, so even though the sleeves are long I can wear it on cooler Summer nights (and it’ll transition easily into Fall with a moto jacket when the time comes). The cut also helps to give the illusion of a smaller waist which is a bonus for me since I’m thicker in the middle.
Neon is one of THE biggest trends around right now, and it’s one that you can wear in so many ways. I loved the flouncy sleeves on this Chiffon Peplum Blouse, and while it is low cut and can be a little more revealing if you want, you can also adjust it so that it can be worn in a slightly more conservative setting. Ripped medium wash denim was an easy pairing, but I also want to wear it with a pencil skirt and some leather pants (in the Fall).
Clear handbags started becoming popular about a year ago, and the trend is still going strong. I’ve been moving away from always carrying a large tote when I go (#photoglife) and my mission has been to build up my handbag collection. I was OBSESSED when I saw this Clear Circle Handle Mini Handbag when I saw it; it’s big enough to wear I can still carry a few things with me but the shape is so interesting and cute, so it’ll joosh up any outfit you pair it with.
It has such a cool girl vibe so I had to pair it with Rounded Retro Lens Sunnies (that I’ve been wanting FOR-EV-ER).
Trends can seem intimidating but they don’t have to be if you do it on your own terms. Regardless of your personal style, you can find so many cute trends to try with Pretty Little Things. Click here to shop their new arrivals!
