Dear Summer, if we blink we gon’ miss you!
It’s mid-July and summer is literally blazing its way through our hourglass, considering that if we sneeze too hard, fall will begin creeping around the corner again. And for the sake of our fashion sense, we need to get it together or else we won’t get an opportunity to try those beloved summer styles seen on our favorite celebrities thus far.
But don’t fret, we’ve got you covered with the superstar trends you must try before summer reaches its expiration date.
The top 5 trends that earned an A+ style grade are *drumroll please!* Stripes, Bralettes and Crop Tops, Denim Overalls, Prints on Prints, and Athletic Gear.
Let’s kick our list off with Stripes:
Bold stripes may intimidate many, but when it comes to celebrities – they ain’t got no worries! Caught on the beautiful booties of Beyoncé, Khloé Kardashian, and Nicole Richie, stripes are ever classic and a wardrobe must. Stripes can be worn in almost any way, whether it be in the form of an accessory or used as a bold accent to a neutral piece.
Bralette and Crop Tops:
Showing a little skin is a must this scorching summer and celebs like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have been baring it all and doing it and doing it well, might we add. The rock star songstresses may have rock hard abs to match, but if worn correctly, we all can wear this look too. Rock your bralette and crop-tops with high-waist skirts or with the next item on our summer trend roster – denim overalls.
Some of us may remember those Osh Kosh overalls we were forced to wear as kids, but there is nothing juvenile about this casual trend. Denim overalls are making a return from the ’90s and they’ve been spied on RiRi’s gal pal Melissa Forde and Selena Gomez. You too can shop the look as on-trend retailers ASOS and Forever 21 have caught on to this comeback trend.
Prints On Prints:
Another trend many shy away from is the prints on prints look, which is a favorite of style sibling duo Beyoncé and Solange, and has also been seen on Bey’s homegirl Gwyneth Paltrow. The print on print look works for all, as long as you follow these simple rules: balance the size of the print to your figure size and when in doubt, keep accessories minimal.
An additional part of the ’90s trend resurgence is athletic wear, which has been previously been spotted on Jourdan Dunn, trendsetter Rihanna, and Angela Simmons. These celebs prove that jerseys aren’t only reserved for the court. Designer brands and retail chains alike are cashing in on the look too, including DKNY, H&M and Dimepiece.
You better get started on styling in these celebrity trends before summer is over!
