There are a lot of things to love about summer; the warm weather, destination vacations, seasonal fruit, blockbuster movies, and of course the change of pace and color when it comes to your wardrobe. Instead of matching the gray skies of winter, we tend to dress brighter and add more colors and accessories to our every day outfits. You want to show off that glowing tan skin and be as adventurous with your outfit as you are with your weekend plans. It’s only natural that summer gives us all a pick-me-up in our bodies, minds and souls.
While we still have about a month until the official first day of summer, I know I’ve been moving things around in my closet to make room for all of those summer must-haves I shared with you last week. But let’s face it- we can’t all afford to fill our closets with the latest and greatest summer trends. Sometimes, we have to work with what we’ve got! Luckily, in summer there are a few trends that never go out of style. All you need is to know what spin to put on it to make last summer’s most worn dress brand new again!
Turquoise jewelry, white sun dresses, wide brimmed hats and straw wedge sandals always fit right into whatever else is trending for the summer season. But to get some more ideas on what pieces to resurface from the summer of 2010 I decided to look back at my old magazines from exactly a year ago. In the June 2010 issue of Elle I found two trend pages that proved my point that not all trends come and go with the season and year.
Look #1: From Crochet to Lace
Look #2: From Floral Patterns to Floral Prints
Hopefully this little blast to the past summer trends will inspire you to re-think your current clothing and see how you can make it fit in 2011. If you have the crochet, don’t be afraid to wear it, just make it lighter! And don’t get rid of all of your bold graphic patterns, but be on the lookout for floral prints that have a softer side to show off. Do you have any other static summer styles that we missed?
