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?
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.
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.
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. 😐
