Summer Sizzling Hot Fashion Trends
Yes, we Phoenicians are definitely feeling the heat by now. But we’re not sweatin’ it! That just means its time to debut our summer fashions! This season, it’s all about the summer dress for the ladies. But with so many styles in vogue, you could rock a different frock every day of the week and still be on-trend. From floral patters to apron and baby doll styles, bold hues and pastel tones, all kinds of summer dresses made their way to the runway — and to local shops near you — this season. The SHOPS Gainey Village shares our top five favorite dress trends for summer 2018:
The Shirtdress — Oh how we love the shirtdress. Generally found in soft hues (there’s nothing like a crisp white) and comfortable fabrics, this look can be dressed up with a lightweight scarf and open-toe booties for a “cool” evening or worn with Converse Chucks and a fedora for a trip to the farmers’ market. However you wear this look, stock up on the shirtdress — we hope this style is back for good.
Florals — Last year’s tropical patterns are being replaced by a garden of soft floral patterns, and we’re diggin’ it. Pastel hues, “botanical” patterns and more are all the rage.
The Baby Doll Dress — This summer, treat yourself to the joys of your childhood past with a dress that features frilly hems, bows, girly patterns and maybe even ruffles.
The Oversized Dress — With bell sleeves, wide A-line hems or both, has there even been a dress so figure forgiving as the oversized dress? Let’s just pause for a moment of thanks. This style is often complemented by lightweight, breathable fabrics… So not only can you revel in the fact that you don’t have to hold in your tummy all day in a restricting dress, you can also breathe easy in this heat. Literally.
Checks, Plaids and Polka Dots, oh my! — Simple patterns are back and oh-so-fashionable on a cool summer dress. Find your favorite pattern and make it your signature style for summer.
