3 Summer Fashion Trends to Take Note of This Year

The warmer weather has arrived and it’s finally time to pack away your big coat. Summer is here, and that means festivals, beer gardens, and summer fashion!

As is the way every year, there are some hot new must have items to hit the shops and track down if you want to update your wardrobe for the season and rock the hottest looks.

So what are this year’s main trends that you need to be aware of? We’re here to run you through the main three we’ve been seeing absolutely everywhere so you can stay bang on trend!


We love jumpsuits because they just take all of the stress out of planning an outfit! Some even have pockets, which just makes for the perfect outfit.

A one piece outfit just has a way of making you look put together, and the great thing about jumpsuits is they can be dressed up or down so easily. Pair with heels and a blazer and you’re night out ready, or trainers and a denim jacket for everyday outings.

One brand that is killing jumpsuits at the moment is Missy Empire! They’ve got such a great selection of both super casual and uber-sparkly and dressy numbers on offer.

Waist cinchers

Love them or hate them, waist cinchers are back in fashion. But right now the ‘in’ way to wear them tends to be over a t-shirt or dress, rather than as underwear. This is a very Marmite trend, with someone people loving it and others shunning it completely!

Popularized by the Kardashians, this style was seen a lot on runways for SS17 too, and now all the fashion bloggers are rocking the look!

Embrace waist cinchers as the finishing touch to any outfit, and you’ll be bang on trend this summer.


This great blend of styles has been rising in popularity in recent years and it looks like it’s definitely here to stay in 2017. Dare we say that this particular trend may be becoming something of a classic, what with its re-occurrence for the past few years in a row?

Athleisure combines active wear with business wear to form the new ‘smart casual’ as a go-to for many of us these days. And why wouldn’t we embrace it? It’s both practical, stylish, and comfortable. That makes it a definite win in our book!

These days there is no problem combining smart trousers and a shirt with trainers, or even tracksuit pants with heels, and we love it.

Athleisure is a look that we see the Kardashian clan rocking pretty much daily, and if they say it’s cool, we’re definitely on board.

We hope this has given you some inspiration to update your wardrobe for summer! If you’re wondering whether some of the trends you’ve been seeing a lot of are here to stay or not, check out this great Metro post which sorts out the classics from the fads!
