Top Fashion Trends This Summer

Nothing says summer quite like animal print, the ideal tie-dye dress, puff shoulder tops, neon tights, and of course, souvenir accessories.

Animal Print

Find your wild side this summer in animal print. In fact, a good animal print is a year-round staple. Pulling off anything animal print may seem pretty daunting. If you’re one of those people who would rather stay far away from prints that seem too exhausting then now is the time for you to break out of your comfort zone. In our opinion, anyone can pull off a great animal print. For a more subtle look, pair an animal printed t-shirt with a great denim jeans or incorporate animal printed accessories into your look. If your willing to go bold, get yourself a great maxi dress and pair that with a similar print sandal.  


Tie-Dye has been trending in the fashion industry for decades now. This trend is perfect for summer as it embraces colour and personality. Pair a tie-dye crop top with a mini pencil skirt for the beach or go bold with a tie-dye kimono or dress. Tie-dye is such a fun way to stay trendy.


Neon is another trend that was big this season, and it’s here to stay. Outshine everyone with all the different ways to rock this trend in the coming months. Neon is a '80s throwback and a super cool trend to try. Pair a bright neon crop top and pencil skirt if you’re eager to make a statement. If you’re not committed to the full neon look, you can try some cute neon accessories and stay right on trend. 

Puff Shoulders

Puff shoulders may seem like an old-fashioned trend that your great grandmother used to look good in. Reworked designs have made its way into the fashion industry and has fashionistas flocking to stores. We think puff shoulders are flattering, architectural, and works perfectly with everything from pencil skirts to mom jeans. Try it for yourself if you’re after something subtle yet exciting.

Souvenir Jewelry and Accessories

We’re seeing this trend grow with each season and includes everything from hair clips to headbands to headscarves. Barrettes, scrunchies, and bows are just that little something extra you need for your summer looks. Feel free to have fun with your accessories this season by layering and pairing different textures. Life is too short not to put a bow on it. This trend can really tie together a look.

So stay on trend now, you don’t want to have major FOMO.
