SUMMER TREND REPORT

BY ASHLEY TOKARUK

Tie-Dye

Arts & crafts, but make it fashion. Catwalks for Stella McCartney, Prada, and R13 all flooded with the beachy, boho vibes of tie-dye. The fusion of colours is playful and nostalgic, making this the perfect pattern for summer. Be bold and rock a denim two-piece, or keep it simple with a simple but bright slip dress. Either way, this tie-dye wave is one to ride.

Feathers 

Unless you live under a rock, you spent the last week being bombarded by Met Gala pictures on Instagram and all other popular media outlets, and so you likely already know how hard this feather trend has hit. This fierce feature makes a bold statement regardless of how you integrate it into your ‘fit — earrings, sleeves, or full frontal coat. You can’t not feel like a diva when you’re feathered, so don’t fear it just go for it.

Beige

This classic, neutral tone is making a statement and has taken the spotlight on runways of Salvatore Ferragamo, Burberry, and Tom Ford this summer. Stunning as a solid or easy to pair with other colours, the versatility of this tone gives you endless options when styling yourself for a day in the office, or a night out on the town. Be creative with this colour, guaranteed it will all look good.

Lace

Be it a bodysuit topped with a full-length lace skirt or a tank trimmed with lace, you’ll be feeling feminine and flirty this summer if you’re taking tips from designers such as Off-White, Burberry, and Alexander Wang. The material being airy and light makes it an amazing embellishment to any outfit in the summer heat.
