It really feels like summer is already here, which is a great excuse to get your wardrobe ready. So what hot trends are coming our way?
I got together with wardrobe stylists Kyle Kagamida, Kim Smith and Therese Wahl and makeup stylist Rene to narrow down the list. Here are our picks for this summer’s top fashion trends.
Denim on denim for men
“Although denim on denim is usually frowned upon because it can look hideous, when done right, there’s something really sexy about a guy who can pull off this look,” says Kagamida.
“For the men’s double-duty denim look you can’t go wrong with a sporty jacket, which I love to pair with a perfectly cut denim shirt,” Smith says. “Denim is a season-less staple. Just reinterpret it this season by layering up!”
“Being that we live in Hawaii, the Boho trend can be reinterpreted each season,” says Wahl. “I love this shibori hand-dyed jumpsuit paired with a soft crochet vest with a casual beach style in mind. This season, don’t be afraid to add layers of beaded necklaces and even a non-matching scarf to the mix. Bold leather accessories on a soft Boho look will add unexpected charm and dimension.”
70s inspired by Bianca Jagger / White on white
“Lanvin, Giambattista and Celine showcased great looks inspired by Bianca Jagger’s bold style this season. It is somewhat androgynous, yet at the same time, very feminine and sexy,” says Kagamida.
“This look is a palette cleanser — all-white is a major trend this season,” notes Smith. “A classic low-cut white jacket simply paired with a gold chain necklace and a mid-length skirt gives the look a sexy, subtle 70s vibe.”
“The shoe of the season is a flat for every occasion — and these certainly add a pop of color to the popular monochromatic white on white trend,” says Smith.
“Lavender, pink and cobalt pastels are big this season and add color to any ensemble,” notes Smith. “Even Burberry Prorsum chose bright pastels for intensity and a bit of drama for their Spring/Summer 2015 collection.”
“Pastels are fresh in beauty this season,” says Rene. “A watermelon or peach lip is so on point. Paired with a clean eyeshadow luster, you’ll look sun-kissed and well-rested.”
I loved working with and picking the brains of these fashion experts. Thank you to:
