5 top fashion trends for spring/summer

1. The Suit Look

The suit look has been around for hundreds of years, but it has recently increased popularity due to celebrities dressing up in this fashion on the red carpet. It is simple yet elegant, making it ideal for both formal and informal wear. Today's suiting styles are more fitted upfront with tapered-down sides that help accentuate your curves while slowly breaking away into a wide bottom half which becomes wider towards the end, creating a slender effect. This style works for all body types and can be worn during any season by playing with color, fabric weight, and even adding some pattern!

2. Tie-dye

Tie-dye was once banned because of its association with hippies back in the 60s. Today, it has been transfigured into a beautiful woven pattern on tops and dresses that contrasts with the bright color of the fabric below. While this look is not usually considered office-appropriate, more and more companies are allowing their employees to express themselves through fashion which is why you'll see many people of all ages rock tie-dye at work or during formal events.

3. The One Shoulder Trend

A few years before this trend came from the red carpet, it quickly became an everyday outfit favorite for most women because it highlights your best physical attribute: Your shoulders! Not only does this look show off your toned arms, but it also adds a certain sexiness to any dress, top, or jumpsuit that you pair it with. To get in on this look, pair a strapless dress or top with skirts that fall high above the knee or right below it. While the shoulders are typically left bare in most cases, you can always add some jewelry to spice up things.

4. The Cuffed Pants Look

Pants have been around for centuries, but only recently have women started cinching them at the ankle or calf with fabric bands, causing them to break away from their usual straight-legged position. This style is ideal when paired with flats, boots, and heels because it instantly slims you down while elongating your legs. Make sure to wear fitted shirts with these pants to create an hourglass effect that will help compliment your feminine curves.

6. Fringe benefits

During the winter, many designers sought to relive the fabled Roaring Twenties, on the hopeful note that we’d soon see a celebratory mood break out as Covid-19 subsided.

While the coronavirus unfortunately remains very much with us and we’re yet to begin partying with the abandon of Jay Gatsby, Prohibition-era styling continues this season with diaphanous fringed frocks shaking and shimmying at houses including Christian Dior, JW Anderson, Alaïa, Burberry, Jil Sander, Rodarte, Versace, Dries Van Noten, Oscar de la Renta and Balmain.

2. Biker chic

Around the same time the flappers were jiving in flimsy frocks, a far more rugged style staple was being created in New York City. The Schott Perfecto leather jacket was designed in the 1920s to meet the needs of early motorcyclists, with a sizeable collar for wind protection, a doubled-over front and an asymmetric zip closure, decentralised to be more comfortable when the chest lay low on a motorbike’s petrol tank.

This summer, labels including Tom Ford, Prada, Balenciaga, Celine, Alexander McQueen, Simone Rocha, Acne, Ports 1961, Tod’s, Dior and Dolce & Gabbana all presented jackets owing a debt to this classic – though we don’t recommend wearing one of these luxe renditions for a high-speed spin on your Ducati. Combine instead with something delicate and sheer (another prominent trend this season) for the ideal pretty/biker chic juxtaposition.
