No matter how much we try to wrap our minds around the color combo we should wear or matching fabrics / prints, there's a shortcut to a good, up-to-date outfit that all of us should know.
Simply put, they will lift that burden off your shoulders by creating the astonishing pieces which make up the trend. All you need to do therefore is decide and buy (and thank God we're here to help you with the latter #jk ).
But even so, the offer is still impressive and overwhelming. After all, unless you're Theresa Roemer, you probably update your wardrobe on a budget (FYI, Theresa Roemer's closet is estimated at almost $12.9 million - my jaw dropped as well, don't worry).
Say for a seasonal closet update you could afford a few good pieces, but let's see from what we're picking this summer:
- Neon explosion - kind of self explanatory, right? Yes, this trend is back. Better get your tan ready for these eye-catching colors. For these, you should check out Valentino, Marni, Jacquemus, Boss, Christopher Kane, VB, Moschino (obviously) and even Tom Ford.
- Short suits, ladies and gentleman. No more of the old school suit (it is summer after all). Now you can send those #bossy vibes without breaking a sweat, as Givenchy, Max Mara, Bottega Veneta, Dior, Chloe, Tod's, Ferragamo and many other might say.
- Remember Natasha from Sex and the City? You know, Big's wife. Vanilla woman. She was onto this blank slate trend. And so are we. Get on that white and off-white. Alexander McQueen, Miu Miu, Altuzarra, Loewe, Louis Vuitton, Isabel Marant already did.
- Not only we're doing short suits this summer, but those fierce ladies might want to add some waistcoats to it as well (throwback to the 70s). YSL, Celine, Paco Rabanne, Emporio Armani, Etro, Fila, Hermes strongly sustain this vibe. As do we.
- The sexy cut-out-and-keep. Too hard to memorize? It's easy actually: just get a piece that it's cut-out and exposes some skin (we need to make up for the first half of 2020 somehow, right? #gohardorgohome). Fetch yourself a cut-out cleavage from Balmain, JW Anderson, Gucci, Missoni, Oscar de la Renta, Rick Owens, Versace and let us know how that went.
- Trench it up! If we could say that there's an "upside" to global warming (although, there's not; let's stop polluting, how about that?), that might be your barely worn trench. I, for one, will post this article and go out into the rain wearing my Michael Kors trench. If you're not into MK, browse through Burberry, Balenciaga, Alberta Ferretti, Alexander Wang, Fendi, Lemaire.
- Denim's never going out of style somehow. But get some refined, 70s style denim. Even Chanel got on board with it, as did Celine, Givenchy, Brandon Maxwell, Dior, Lanvin/
- Bring the tropics to us if we can't go there! This should be a movement. Remember why Google Images was invented? For THE dress. J-Lo did us good in that tropical Versace with more cleavage than actual dress (but we are forever grateful for that). How could we start this list, if not with Versace and continue with D&G, Missoni, Valentino, DSquared2, Fendi, Ermanno Scervino?
- You thought a cut-out was bold? A "nothing under that see-through" definitely is and the following aren't afraid to flaunt that: Gucci, No21, Mugler, Loewe, Acne Studios, Ashish.
- Shirts are in. I guess every brand has its shirts so, get whatever you like as long as you bring back the 70s. Easy peasy.
- Rustic raffia, you guys! (I don't know about you, but my all time favorite furniture assembly would be the outdoor raffia set - AND NOW I CAN WEAR IT? YASSS). Thank you, Dior, Simone Rocha, Oscar de la Renta, Issey Miyake, D&G, Chanel... you made my dream come true!
Ladies and gents, we hope we brought some light into your wardrobe with these main trending items this spring/summer. If not, stay tuned as more relevant fashion info will come soon.
xo, Go for Brands.
