This summer is all about elegance and femininity. Designers keep experimenting with trends and, finally, spring florals have been replaced with bright shades, light airy fabrics and asymmetrical seductive necklines. Whether it’s stripes, ruffles, voluminous sleeves or pink accessories that you’re choosing this summer, we’ve found the top six affordable looks that you won’t want to miss...
Ruffles are everywhere this summer and a must have if you want to look bang on trend. An elegant sleeveless top with asymmetric ruffle is suitable for both the office and an evening out with friends. Wear this satin top (£22) by Dorothy Perkins with slacks or pencil skirt for a smart office look, or dress up with motley trousers.
Voluminous sleeves have conquered London and New York Fashion Weeks this year. Prominent sleeves are bold, exciting and add volume to any outfit. It’s a trend that should not be ignored, and you can find this wonderful feminine top (£24) in our New Look store.
Stripes are a big trend of the summer. Designer’s trousers, suits, and shoes are all lined by a multi-coloured stripe, attracting attention with bold colours. Matalan’s striped one shoulder top (£14) combines three main trends of the season: stripes, ruffle and asymmetry.
Pink is the colour of the season, designers say. Don’t be afraid to go pastel or bold, you can pick any shade of pink you like – whether it’s pale pink or fuchsia. This Pink Bandeau Bow Dress (£50) found in store at Next not only creates a dynamic look, but also makes you look like you just came from top designer’s catwalk.
Christian Dior and Stella McCartney have made a casual t-shirt trendy by using a slogan that represents your politic stance, way of life, religion or just an element of humour. Even children’s collections are full of nice t-shirts with slogans, like this one from H&M store.
Sometimes, symmetrical clothes are just boring. Broken lines and asymmetry create a strong, dramatic that is almost impossible to get wrong. Remember, stripes are trendy too, so this River Island one shoulder stripe top (£30) is essential for your summer wardrobe.
