Covid is finally lifting, the summer breeze is back, and it’s the perfect time to pack your bag and head to the beach! If you’re anything like us, your wardrobe needs major updates after being stuck at home for so long. Wondering what to wear this summer? Don’t worry we’re here to bring you the top summer trends of 2022.
Low Waists are Back!
High waisted jeans and skirts were trending for so long, it was just a matter of time before low waists came back in fashion. It’s the rule of time that history repeats itself, the fashion world is no exception. All trends have a natural cycle of coming back after some time. So, time to retire those mom jeans and show off your midriff this summer with a low waisted maxi skirt! It’s also the perfect accessory to cover up after a swim at the beach.
You don’t have to pretend to be the “cool girl” anymore, embrace your hyper femininity. Pink is back, and hopefully here to stay! This summer feminine colors such as pink, lavender, and pastel tones are back. What’s even better, they come hand in hand with feminine textures and materials such as silks, ruffles, and lace.
Crochet / Knit Anything
From dresses, tops to bucket hats, crochet and knit textiles are the must-haves for this summer. They give off an effortless and comfortable ambiance while keeping your outfit cute and trendy. Although you can find these fun and quirky pieces at stores, you can also make your own! A dress may take too much time, but if you dedicate few hours to the task you can make yourself a small crop top or bikini top for the beach. Another plus to making your own crochet/knit top is that it will be one of a kind, and can be a fun conversation starter.
Net crochet dresses and tops are also amazing choices for beachwear. The “net” design is more revealing than the typical crochet design but it will definitely add a bohemian touch to your outfit.
Cut-outs have been slowly climbing into high fashion’s radar for a while now, and this summer it has officially become a wardrobe staple. Many dresses can be found with a tight form-fitting bodice and cutouts near the waist, back, or chest. Instagram and TikTok influencers have led this new trend, and it is generally associated with trendy terms such as “hot girl summer”.
Although it is always fun to try new trends, remember to only wear what you are comfortable with. If you’re not comfortable with showing too much skin opt for something with smaller or less cut-outs. For instance, a maxi dress with an asymmetrical neck cut out.
