If you want to be up-to-date with the latest fashion trends and look hot, hot, hot while you’re out and about, here are our top 10 2016 summer fashion trends to try this year.
Remember, if you’re not 100% sure if a trend suits you or if you’re not completely in love with one of these summer fashion trends, then don’t invest in an expensive piece, rather choose a cheaper option that you won’t mind passing on to someone else when you get tired of it.
Although the latest fashion trends might be everywhere in the shops and on fashionistas, you still might not like them, and that’s okay! Just because it’s made our 2016 summer fashion trends list, doesn’t mean you’ll love it. Pick and choose what works for you to create your own special style
Inspired by the seventies, it’s the fashion trend that’s everywhere this summer. You’ll find the fringed look gracing everything from tops and jackets to bags and necklaces. We say it’s fun, it’s feminine, it’s fabulous — bring it on!
2 SOLID STRIPES
Stand out from the crowd by swapping your skinny stripes for more solid ones. You’ll find them on tops, dresses and skirts in a range of different colours, but black and white is always a winning combination.
3 THE BUCKET BAG
You can NEVER have too many fabulous bags, and a bucket bag is the latest trend to try. It’s definitely a super-trendy summer must-have for 2016. Plus, it’ll take you into winter, too!
4 OFF THE SHOULDER
Ultra-flattering, flirty and so feminine, this is one of our favourite summer fashion trends that you should have no problem embracing — it takes a simple top to new heights, whether you dress it up or down.
5 ORIENTAL STYLE BELT
These wide waist belts are so fabulous, we’re thinking of buying one in every colour. They’re perfect for nipping in your waist and they go with just about everything — think jackets, dresses or skirts.
6 MILITARY INSPIRED
Build your look around khaki and olive greens to rock the military trend. Add a touch of gold or bronze and mix with camel and denim for an effortlessly stylish look.
7 CROP TOPS
Yes, they’re still around, and they’re probably going to be one of the most popular fashion trends for a while, so at least you know you’ll get good use out of a crop. Wear them with high-waisted bottoms if you’d rather not show any skin.
8 THE GLADIATOR
Make sure your summer sandal is a gladiator — go as high as you dare. Choose a metallic shade for a touch of glam, and don’t forget to treat your feet to an at-home pedi!
9 CROP TOP BIKINI
If you like the athletic look, you’ll love this new swimwear trend. Plus it’s a very supportive style if you’ve got a big bust.
10 THE KIMONO
When you need an elegant cover-up, but it’s too hot for a jersey or jacket, a kimono or kaftan will be your fashion hero. Choose a neutral colour with some sparkly embellishments so it will go with everything.
