The heat is on – and it’s time to get your vacay wardrobe sorted, stat. From shoulder-baring sun dresses to all-out tropical extras, here are five of the biggest summer fashion trends to jump on right now.
1. Plunge Swimsuits
Water babes, listen up. Whether you’re posing by the poolside or making a splash in the sea, plunging swimsuits are more than mega right now. Featuring cool cut-outs and low, scooped backs, these skin-baring styles have got us hooked this summer, so steal all the stares with classic black and white, plus dreamy mermaid greens.
2. Embroidered Florals
Orchid Flower Maxi Dress, £49 | Nautical Embroidered Bikini Top, £17 | Nautical Embroidered Bikini Briefs, £16 | Flower Embellished Bikini Top, £22 | Flower Embellished Bikini Briefs, £18 | Ciara Embroidered Shorts, £32 | Ciara Embroidered Skirt, £39
Our biggest fashion crush of SS17? Embroidery, obvs. Feel your best summer self with in-bloom bikinis and cute cover-ups, before floating off to the rooftop bar in a sand-grazing maxi dress with pow-wow petals.
3. Tropical Everything
Hawaiian Print Maxi Dress, £39 | Tropical Statement Necklace, £25 | Hawaiian Print Bikini Crop Top, £22 | Hawaiian Print Bikini Briefs, £16 | Hawaiian Print Shorts, £22 | Tropical Garden Flip Flops, £8
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – tropical prints are hotter than ever for SS17. Take it straight from passport to paradise with palm-print maxi dresses, crop-top bikinis and beach essentials, or go bananas over the trend with swishy statement necklaces. Tropi-cool.
4. Off-Shoulder Styles
Shoulders are getting some serious screen time this summer, with a whole host of tan-friendly types filling up our wardrobes fast. Want a new way to show off that golden glow? Go for ruffled Bardot necklines and out-there embroideries, and get that beach babe vibe down with wind-blown boho waves.
5. Easy Espadrilles
Wanna go casj-cool without having to resort to your trainers in plus 30 degree heat? We hear you. Made with natural jute soles, espadrilles are the ultimate summer sole-mates (right after sandals, ofc), with lace styles and glam glitter designs upping the ante for your next sun-kissed vacay.
