We know it’s only February and it may be icy outside, but it’s never to early to start planning your summer wardrobe ready for that much-needed trip to the Caribbean or that yearly jaunt to Ibiza. So, it’s time for a fashion update, and by this we mean throwing away those off-coloured denim shorts which, let’s face it, have seen their fair share of sunlight and finally saying goodbye to those comfy pair of sandals which you refuse to part with despite their well-worn appearance. Not sure where to start? Thankfully, Holiday Hypermarket is here to help and has listed the key trends to look forward to this summer.
Check-in Trendy with a Flared Jumpsuit
It’s safe to say that 2015 has seen designers taking inspiration from the flare-wearing, floral-flaunting 1970s. Dig out your wide leg trousers and your fedora hat because this trend is going nowhere with seventies throwbacks already hitting the runway and setting the trend forecast for summer 2015. The flared jumpsuit is a must-pack this year from floral prints to vivid colours and denim, this elegant one piece is the perfect replacement for the cocktail dress.
Look Fabulous in Fringe
The fringe trend is all over the runway this year, and as we head into summer were only going to see more of it, so we suggest you embrace it! Long associated with the 1920s flapper girl and the bohemians, fringe is no longer a strictly for festivals staple. Through the years the style seems to have adapted, looking great over chic skirts, cocktail dresses and even gowns. Are you going on a beach holiday? Then the fringe bikini is an essential, not only is it a cool way to wear the trend, but it also appears to minimise your hips as the fringing detail draws attention to your upper half.
Show off your Sun-tanned Skin in White Lace
White lace is all the rage this summer – and we’re not talking about bridal wear! If you’re already dreaming of warmer weather and longer days this chic and delicate look screams summer. Throughout fashion month lacing appeared in various forms from dresses to corsets and blouses, so you’re sure to find something that works for you. Besides, white lace will look great against sunkissed skin.
Rock the Grecian Gladiator Sandal
Are you forever looking for a pair of flat super chic sandals that you can wear with your favourite summer dress? Well, the good news is the gladiator sandal is back. Hooray! We think most of you will agree that the sun plays havoc on our feet leaving them dry and often swollen, so why make matters worse by wearing too-tight-for-your-ankles shoes or worse platforms which you can barely manage to walk in? Try the gladiator shoe, this sandal is every traveller’s best friend with its stylish and comfortable shape. Plus, the style will look great with both denim shorts and a summer dress, so you won’t have to limit your wardrobe choices.
Cool-off in Khaki
We all know what khaki means, it suggests the military look is here and it’s about time. From army-inspired to modern safari, expect khaki to take on a much more feminine look this year. Most of us tend to associate the style with autumn and winter, but it turns out khaki is in the spotlight for spring/summer this year and is set to take over the high street.
So, what are you waiting for? Shop early this year with our summer holiday clothing trends and don’t forget to book your summer 2015 holiday.
