Summer Outfit Inspiration

Summer Outfit Inspiration

This summer, many new trends have popped up on the major fashion runways and have now trickled down to everyday life. We are seeing things such as the frequent use of yellow in outfits, as seen in runway shows such as Coach, Creatures of Comfort, and others. Since it’s the start of my favorite season, I decided to share some of my favorite trends for this time of year.

Evolving from the yellow color trend I mentioned earlier, Niagara blue has had widespread exposure as well. This blue is relaxing, soft, and versatile enough to match with many different shades from the color palette. I am a huge fan of this color trend, especially because it works well with my pale skin and brings out my blue eyes. Altuzarra, Alexander McQueen, and DKNY are a few designers who have been using this color throughout their collections. Since I love this color so much, I was enticed to buy this dress from Urban Outfitters. Even though it is a slightly lighter blue than Niagara, it still works. It has an open back detail with delicate string sleeves to add a sophisticated yet girly touch to the dress. In exploring this color, I found a beautiful wrap dress with a similar color tone from Revolve. Along with my outfit, I paired my orange silk lace-up shoes, adding an interesting color mix to the outfit. I found a similar pair on WeWoreWhat that comes in a vibrant pink, which is another huge color trend for the season. I paired my outfit with the popular sailor hat that’s been around for some time now, I found a fabulous similar hat online at Anthropologie that comes in a soft gray color. I also gave the outfit some layering by adding a nude undershirt.

My overall inspiration for this outfit was something related to what’s currently on the runways but enhanced with my own style. It’s important to remember to be influenced by current trends, yet not allow them to overwhelm our own individual creativity. As my favorite designer, Karl Lagerfeld, once stated, “Trendy is the last stage before tacky.”
