It is the perfect time to prepare our outfits for the upcoming vacations, special occasions or hangings with family and friends. These are the top 20 must-have fashion outfits for your summer 2016 closet. There are many easy-to-style and fit-all trends that you will love! Let’s begin exploring them.
1. The Off-shoulder
The off-shoulder trend is not new in the history of fashion, but it is definitely one of the most feminine and sensual trends for this summer. It means being a true lady, yet sexy, since you are revealing your skin, but in a rather unexpected and graceful way.
Personally, it is one of my fave trends for this summer that allows you to enhance your feminine allure. You can easily style the perfect outfit by adding some delicate necklaces. The ones shown in the photos below are from Happiness Boutique – feel free to check them out.
You can experiment as much as you’d like because the off-shoulder is going to stay for the whole summer and if I were you I would hurry up in front of the mirror to see how to rock this style!
2. Ripped or Patchwork Jeans
If you are the creative type that likes pop art and cartoons this summer is the perfect moment for you to indulge into some pop art patchwork jeans. The good part is that you can always grab an old pair of jeans and stick the patches that you want
in order to be able to create a unique pair of jeans. The same goes for the ripped jeans. This outfit is really easy to style by throwing on a plain t-shirt and add some accessories like a long necklace or a set of bracelets.
We all know what the platform shoes are, but what are the flatforms?
They are the comfortable version of the platforms, which are great and practical because we can be stylish and comfy at the same time!
We’ve seen the rompers before so if you already own one please bring it out of your closet!
Rompers are very sleek and chic outfit that you can wear during the day or night out with friends. They come in so many different patterns, colors and materials therefore you can choose the appropriate one for the occasion.
5. Palazzo pants
As we speak about chic I can’t miss to mention the comeback of the palazzo pants, which are those very loose, elegant and draped pants that are a perfect for the hot summer days and nights.
If you are tired of the skinny pants then don’t be afraid to put on some palazzo pants with high heels. Let your garments be of a flowy cut, the less the fabric touches your skin, the better!
6. Tassel Earrings
To complete your outfit from above (the palazzo pants) you can add some tassel earrings, which are also very trendy this summer. These earrings really make a conversation piece because they look unusual, yet elegant. If you like the style you can check the ones from Happiness Boutique.
The espadrilles are still very trendy this summer so if you neglected them last year, but repeatedly told yourself “Oh, this outfit is perfect to match with a pair of espadrilles”, then you need to go shopping!
These flats are very easy to style with dresses, rompers, jeans and many other pieces of clothing that are on fire this summer.
8. A-line Skirt
It is is all about the A-line skirt, the trend from the 70’s that can fit most of your occasions.
There are many A-line shaped skirts out there you just need to find the one that suits your body and responds to your taste. Plus, it is good for all those ladies who want to give the illusion of having long legs.
9. Lace Up Pointed Toe Flats
These pointed lace up flats are huge right now! They can be combined with anything because you can achieve the casual, but at the same time girly and going-out look so don’t hesitate to purchase one pair.
10. Velvet Chokers
The wrap velvet looks simple, but will definitely give your wear a character.
11. Deep V-cuts
The deep cut is great for the summer time because it allows your body to stay airy.
Since there is much going on with this top you don’t need to accessorize, which makes it a very easy to style outfit.
12. Denim Dresses
Denim dresses are so cute and girly. It is also one of my favorite trends for this season because I simply throw on my dress with a pair of espadrilles and tah-daah!
If you are one of those girls that turns her dressing up into messing up the whole house, then be wiser and wear more dresses.
13. Straw Hats
During the summer we have to protect our skin from the strong UV rays so you can complete your summer outfit by adding a straw hat to your wardrobe.
The straw or floppy hats are a very practical and cute accessories that make your outfit more interesting and at the same time you stay fresh.
14. Bathing Suits
Well, the bathing suits are not the everyday outfit for the summer, but definitely one that you will need at some point. This summer the trend among the bathing suits is quite strappy.
This lightweight kimono can be styled in so many ways, but it is definitely a must have for the summer, especially if you love layering.
Now we can enjoy some feminine ruffles as part of our summer outfits.
Even though it is just a detail from our clothing, it is enough to make a staple piece and catch people’s eyes. Plus, the flowy blouse allows your body to stay cool.
17. Lace up Bra
If you like deep décolletés then I suggest that you purchase a lace bra and show it off under a patterned or plain collar shirt. It looks sexy, but not in a trashy way.
To top off your outfit you can accessorize with layered or delicate necklaces.
Tip: during the very hot summer days it is better to wear a bra without padding because you will escape the stifling heat that could irritate your skin.
18. Collar Shirt
Try to choose loose button up shirts because for once you will be able to pair it up with a nice lace bra or a necklace, and second, you will let your body to feel the summer breeze.
19. High Waisted Shorts
The high waisted shorts still have their fame this summer. You can check out these from Happiness Boutique if you like.
If you are one of those people that is indecisive about what goes well with what, then I recommend this type of outfit because you simply know that you throw on two pieces that are meant for each other.
20. Boho Dresses
Last but not least, the boho inspired dresses are a must. This is the perfect throw on for an effortless summer look.
Again, we can see the tassel detail on this dress.
Overall, there are many interesting styles for this summer so dive in the world of fashion. As you can see many of the styles are intertwined and you can use them in combination. It is better to choose light and pastel colors to stay nice and cooler.
