Summer Fashion Essentials.

You can feel the summer is in the air and the excitement that’s buzzing around for the December vacation. This summer it is time to shine and stand out from the crowd. These are the must-have items for your wardrobe this summer:

 

  • Canary yellow -anything:

At the Balenciaga’s collection show, we can see a big take on especially canary yellow, from head-to-toe designs. The outfit was layered over a long-sleeved top in the same shade and accessorized with matching platform Balenciaga crocs. Pop a yellow dress in your vacation bag and you’ll make a statement wherever you go!

  • Trendy Fringe handbag:

Be fringing ready this summer. Fringing is swishing across necklines, hemlines, shoes …you name it. We are especially in love with the fringes appearing on bags. It got its start with Cult Gaia. (the bag brand with all the power) and if Cult Gaia makes it, you should have it. Shape and size of the bag doesn’t matter, if there’s fringing you’re on the right track. If you have an old bag laying around I would say it is about time to fringe it up and make it an A-list trendy bag.

  • Belt bag

This is a trend that especially made waves in the 80’s and 90’s. The moon bag or as we know it the “fannypack”. Bright in all colours and shapes the shops are full of them. And this is so clever. When you want to go for a stroll by the beach, go for a road trip and don’t want to take to many items, this is ideal for that. Just enough space for your essentials. Not only is it worn around your waist but also diagonally from your shoulder to your waist. This is the perfect item to spice up your outfit.

  • Platform Sandals

The higher the sole the better the sandal. High soles from toe to the ankle are back and it sure is here to stay for a while. The perfect summer sandal for that special white dress for a cocktail or two at the seaside. From a variety of colours to choose from especially: black, white, rose gold, gold and brown makes it even more difficult to decide which pair to choose from. The straps can be crossover or 2 separate segments usually made from a strong material such as leather.

  • Flat top Visors

These visors are a favourite when it comes to Victoria Beckham. The frame shape is so flattering, and this classic style works for every season. The uniqueness of these glasses lays in the straight line of the top part, also the rounding on the bottom. There is little to no space where the two glasses collide, which makes it a very interesting item to own. Be sure to rock out with these awesome glasses this summer!
