Summer season is the time to buy new clothes representing the latest trends in women’s fashion.
Monochromatic is in. If you think that black and white has seen better days, think again. Designers known for their fantastic sense of fashion are giving high marks to this minimalist trend. The trend sometimes takes on a novel twist, however, with the usual completely black dress swapped for a more brilliant edition of the monochromatic style. Sometimes a single shade is used but is employed on a dress of more than one grain/texture to enhance the general concept. Fashion designers opine that the minimalist look works best on women if the clothes are patterned and structured flawlessly. A fit body to round off the look is a definite advantage.
Showing skin is also in. Cut-outs and sheer material call attention to the body in a timeless way. Some clothes disclose the midriff every now and then. Some styles are simply subtly suggestive. They demonstrate one’s femininity in spite of the reveal. The use of a sheer blouse made of fine organza is an example—soft and feminine, but bound to be draw attention.
Flower prints are also in the forefront of women’s fashion. You can count roses, daisies, daffodils, gerberas and passion flowers to pop out of a lot of clothes this summer. Fashion mimics a garden this summer – full of vivid, striking colourful blooms. Moreover, you see the flowers not merely as floral prints but as adornments in bracelets, embellishments in trendy shorts, styles in bags, prints in sunspecs, and shapes of brooches, rings, and other accessories.
Blue is the new black in today’s women’s fashion. This colour is summer’s conspicuous colour. This singular colour runs a gamut of shades – cobalt-blue, cornflower-blue, and aquamarine-blue. Freshness now sparkles. The colour is seen on shirts, shoes, ballet-flats, chain-bracelets, and even in tie-dyes.
Clever prints of various types are in vogue in women’s fashion. You see all kinds – from the ubiquitous animal print, representations of myths and legends, beautiful and unusual scenery, to unfamiliar postage-stamps. Some are exotic; some are simply clever. Some hark back to the 60’s with their ultra-graphic popular-art prints of audacious principal colours.
Costume-like fringes are hot. They are plush, swanky, and ritzy. And they are made of material only fashion geniuses would associate with fringes – silk, raffia, leather, and metallic. It is one attention-calling detail that women are falling all over themselves to include in their clothes and accessories. Fringes are everywhere – in totes, boots, body-bags, shawls, and even in enormous dangling earrings and bracelets.
Women’s fashion pays homage to ruffles. Ruffles add volume and grab attention, especially if they are on your hemlines and go swaying as you sashay your way into a party. It is one detail that demonstrates feminine sensuality and allure. You also find this element in things other than party clothes – in swimsuits, as well as in bags.
Geometric shapes are in. You see them in the form of stripes – fine level ones, as well as bold gigantic ones. Nobody cares if parallel stripes make you look wide. Large, bold, and wide – you make your fashion statement this way these days. Stripes are even seen in BOTH shirts and bottoms, to ensure utmost startled attention.
