Nothing excites a fashion enthusiast like the mention of summer and for many good reasons. You see, while it is still possible to look cool during the cold season, it is the sunshine that brings out the best outfits fully. What’s more, summer means more opportunities to go out and meet people and it is thus the best chance to look great in the latest fashion trends. 2018 promises to dazzle if the fashion weeks are anything to go by and you should get ready to rock the latest fashion styles. Whether you love the trends or you like sticking to the more traditional summer outfits, there must be something you can learn from the latest trends.
Below are some of the summer trends already creating a buzz in the fashion industry. Take a look and see what you can borrow from these trends:
- Polka Dots
Now polka dots have been around for some time but they always make a comeback like all classics. You see, it is easy to get a great look with polka dots because it is one of the most versatile patterns you will find in the fashion industry. A polka-dot ensemble not only gives your outfit some warmth but shows you are ready to have fun this summer. You can choose from the large polka-dot ensemble including a polka-dot maxi dress, polka-dot city bag, and polka-dot tote, polka-dot wrap and many other items.
- Floral Patterns
Okay, you must be thinking there is nothing new with florals in summer but when was the last time you went to the stores for a new floral dress or any other floral pattern outfit? This season you will find big and bright all-over prints and many other variations which will make you look great everywhere you turn up this summer.
- Pastel Colors
To say that there is a Pastel colors attack in 2018 is an understatement. They are everywhere from the fashion catwalks to the streets and for a good reason. Delicate sugared almond shades are in and in a big way. To put it simply, pastels are a lovely, soft option for warmer temperatures and you can play around with these colors to pull off any look you want. From lilac, pink, lemon or duck egg blue you have an array of colors to choose from and the choice is yours.
- Check Prints
Check are dominating the fashion events and you will see them in a big way everywhere. You see, this is one of those classic styles that will always make a comeback in a fresh way. While the print was traditionally exclusive to blazers and trousers, you will find it on asymmetrical tops and breezy skirts and you can mix it up with anything else you like as long as the colors blend well.
It was not something many people expected to make a comeback during the fashion week but it did and in a big way. Fringing is not getting a sophisticated, empowered appeal and you can see it on more items including boots.
- Bold Colors
You can expect to see more bold colors this summer and the best thing is that they are always easy to wear. Summer is a season of fun and there is no better way to channel the spirit of the season than with outstanding colors. You can borrow from the fashion weeks and rock vibrant, bold shades which can suit every outfit you want to wear.
Sheer was one of the headlining trends in most fashion weeks and you can expect to find more transparent clothing in the stores. From sheer coats, dresses, and skirts, cycling shorts to full briefs there is a sheer outfit for everyone and for every occasion. If you want to make heads turn this summer, get ready to go bold with sheer trends.
Who thought something that goes against the grain would add such an edge to an outfit? Asymmetry looks were big in most fashion shows and most stores already have interesting clothing that you should try out. It is a great way to give an edge to your favorite outfit.
- Double Denim
That denim will never go out of fashion is not in doubt but one thing that you have to recognize is the dynamic of this summer favorite. This summer, the double denim is the in-thing. Doubling up is the way to go if you want to rock your denim in a fresh way and you have some incredible inspiration from the fashion shows.

Maybe you are thinking of the ever-present and boring shorts threw away after summer only to come back next summer. Well, the fashion show had an interesting take on summer shorts and you will love the reincarnation of this ever-practical look. From Saint Laurent’s high-waisted leather shorts to Louis Vuitton’s silky boxer style there is a lot you can do with shorts to make a fashion statement.
