Sea, salt, and sand — summer is almost here! Everyone is looking forward to those golden tans (but no tan lines!) and we’re all keeping an eye on what trends will rock the beach walk this year! In case you want to dig out some retro outfits that are still very much in (like that ‘80s style mini dress) or you’re looking for a little shopping before your vacation, we’ve got you covered!
Here’s a list of 5 summer trends you should stay on top of this year (with your own twist to them highly encouraged!):
1. Reusable water bottles
There’s nothing like a reusable water bottle on a hot summer day! It serves as the perfect protector while also being incredibly fashionable — and this summer they’re all the rage! Choose your favorite drink and match it to any outfit for an added boost of style.
Plus, you’ll be reducing your carbon footprint with every sip!
2. Bucket hats
In case you’re not a fan of big hats, this year another popular must-have for the summer are bucket hats! You might even have one at home, buried in your closet from years ago, waiting for its new chance to shine. Or you just get a new one in one of the many colors and designs currently on the market.
3. Neon colors
Neon is absolutely a must-have of the summer! Whether it’s just an accessory, such as a bright neon bag, or a clothing piece like neon pants or a light summer jacket, you’ll definitely be on top of trends. Since neon is very bright, and already the centerpiece of any outfit, make sure the rest of your choices aren’t as bold.
4. Subtle glam
We always wanna feel glamorous, but during the summer, subtle glam is the way to go! Choose a minimalist ring, sparkly earrings, or our Leaf Crystal to guide you through the day.
With just a pop of bling, you’ll feel red carpet ready!
5. White clothes
White is the new black! Especially plain white T’s — they go perfectly with absolutely anything whether it’s jean shorts or your favorite flowery skirts. You just can’t go wrong with white this year, no matter how you choose to style your outfit. Not to mention this color is perfect for those hot summer days as it doesn’t attract heat.
6. Outdoor-friendly yoga mats
If last year taught us anything, it’s that working out isn’t confined to a gym. Doing a quick morning yoga flow or high-intensity training is one of the quickest ways to feel back in touch with your body. Combine that with a sea view or a fresh breath of mountain air and you’ll reap all the benefits of calmness.
What do you need for a great outdoor session? A quality yoga mat!
7. Fun hair ties
You can’t go wrong with a fun scrunchie! They’re everywhere now, and everyone wants one — what better time to get a few? The hot summer days will make you crave a ponytail all the time, and when you have a fun hair tie, ribbon, or scrunchie that you can style… you might just spend the whole summer with your hair up!
Naturally, fashion is always in the eyes of the beholder and you should never wear something you don’t feel comfortable in or personally like, just because it’s trendy. Better yet, don’t be afraid to put your own touch on these summer trends to make them your own. Use the inspiration to become a trendsetter within trends through your own unique style.
