2018 Summer Trends I Love
My brother-in-law’s mother (yes, take a second to process that) is always asking me what the latest fashion trends are. She knows I have a lifestyle blog and that I like clothes, so it’s really sweet that she always asks. But I often feel unprepared to give her a good answer. “Um…florals? I always like wearing florals.”
I follow a lot of fellow bloggers and subscribe to far too many women’s magazines, so I often find myself taking screenshots or photos of things/trends I find. I keep them in my “To Blog About” notes section on my iPhone. Sometimes they never see the day of light, but this time they are! Here are a few of the summer trends I’m loving so far. Which one is your favorite?
Romper | Bralette Swimsuit Top | Off the Shoulder Top | Maxi Dress | Slide Sandal | Crop Top | Jumpsuit
Knot Front Details
One of the more feminine fashion accents you’ll find me wearing often are bows. I like that the tie-knot or front-knot trend encompasses bows, but with a little edge. It’s a bow but then it shows a little skin. You know, to let the boobs breath a little.
Foldover Clutch | Smocked Tank | Flats | Mini Skirt | One-piece Swimsuit | Shell | Tank Top | Midi Dress | Slide Sandal
Gingham has been around forever, and I feel like it’s always “trendy”, but even more so this summer. J Crew has some really great gingham pieces, so check them out if you haven’t yet. If you’re worried about looking like a picnic tablecloth, choose a color other than red.
One-Shoulder Dress | One-Shoulder Top | Ruffle Dress | Swimsuit Top | Midi Wrap Dress | Wrap Dress | Asymmetrical Top
I’m not sure if this is what this look is official called, but I’m calling it “asymmetrical neckline”. It’s not one-shoulder, and it’s no off-the-shoulder, but instead it’s somewhere in-between. My neck/chest is one of the few areas I actually like about myself (#skinnyneck), so this trend is one I’ll be wearing this summer. One I won’t be wearing? Crop tops. 😐
