Sick of Summer Fashion Already? Try these Updates
One of the major issues with strong trends is their longevity. The excitement and hype wanes fast leaving us with a wardrobe of ‘been-there-done-that’ pieces. A good way of beating this is by adopting the trends when they are still young. This will give you more bang for your buck and ensures that you are ahead of the trend. Well, with about 2 months of summer to go, it may be a good time to start adopt these fall trends that are bound to be on everyone’s wishlist.
1 || Soft Wide-Legged Denim
Think palazzo pants but in denim… What differentiates these jeans from season’s past is their combination of shape and movement. Wide leg pants have generally been stiff, and soft denim has been almost always in a baggy boyfriend cut. Update your look with a pair of high-waisted, wide-legged, soft wash denim.
2 || Sparkly Shoes
Not just for evening, these sparkly shoes, perfect for Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz are the next big thing. In slippers, sandals and high-heeled pumps this is the trend to pick up now. Don’t stick with traditional glitter in silver and gold, the hottest pieces are actually in sorbet shades of pink, blue and mint.
3 || Cowboy Details
After a few seasons this trend has finally stuck. Cowboy boots, turquoise jewelry and tan leather accents will all be big for fall, and you know what that means…wear it first! Not too sure how to do it, start off with a sombrero hat (as seen at Dior) instead of a basic floppy hat at the beach.
4 || Animal Print
It’s true that traditional leopard print has been trending for a while thanks to Danish fashion brand Ganni, you can still make it your own by picking up a colorful version of the trend. With the strong Eighties influence for Fall 2018 bright pops of color in animal print are a solid bet.
5 || Color Combinations
As mentioned above Eighties fashion is a particularly strong trend for Fall. With that direction comes some original color combinations that have been missing for a few seasons now, drowned out by all the pastels and red and pink combinations. Think deep purples matched to burnt oranges. Teals and mustards and of course the Eighties trademark turquoise and burgundy combo.
