Summer is the time when you can finally explore fashion trends. While winter compels you to garb everything under a comfy sweater or an overcoat, the rainy season impels you to adorn those practical but unfashionable rain boots. Now that the summer is here, revamp your wardrobe with these summer essentials:
1. Cropped Tops:
Crop tops are making it big these days. They look best with high-waist pants or a midi skirt. Culottes and crop tops also make a good combination. Since crop tops make a fashion statement in themselves, it is important to not make the look too busy. If you are wearing a printed crop top, match it with a simple, single colored pant or skirt. However, we will recommend buying plain, solid colored tops as they can be paired with almost anything.
2. Printed Shorts:
Unsurprisingly, printed shorts are also making a comeback this season. Print on print is in vogue, but it’s one of the most difficult trends to pull off. If you do not understand prints, you will probably end up looking like a spray-painted wall. We suggest going for summery prints like floral and stripes. Pair these with a solid colored long top to balance out the proportion. Throw in a light baggy jacket to get an ultra-casual look. If you want to look super stylish, invest in baroque print shorts. These shorts look exceedingly hot with graphic tees.
3. Lace dresses:
Lace has been the biggest trend this past season. However, should you invest in a summery lace dress? No. While lace most certainly makes you look feminine, it is also a fabric that is best suited to spring or winter. A lace dress might make you look beautiful, but it will also make you sweat whole day long. During summers, stay away from lace. However, if you are hung up on lace, we recommend investing in a lace top and mixing it with a breezy maxi skirt.

4. Backless dresses:
Summer is the time to put your sexy back on full display. Backless dresses should be the first thing you pick to wear to a summer party. Crochet dresses look really cute when matched with a contrasting bright chemise. Likewise, yellow chiffon backless dresses will always remain a summer staple.
5. Off-shoulder tops:
Tops with shoulder cut-outs were in vogue last season. This summer season, the focus is on off-shoulder tops. Off-shoulder tops with balloon sleeves are making it really big. From jeans to skirts, these tops can be paired with anything, and they will look ultra chic and sexy.
6. Lingerie tops:
If there is one trend that has ruled the red carpet this past season, it is lingerie clothing. From Britney Spears to Zoe Saldana, every Hollywood starlet has played with this peek-a-boo trend. If you wish to jump in, pair your lingerie with a buttoned down long jacket and high-waist pants. The right way to wear this trend is to expose only a part of your lingerie and not the whole of it.
