5 Trends in Women's Spring and Summer Clothes
When women's summer clothes arrive, they're as welcome as tree blossoms and green grass. In spring and summer, everything seems to come to life, including women's wardrobes. Racks of gray sweaters and black coats are swept away by saturated colors, vibrant prints, and flouncy, playful silhouettes. But deciding what to wear once that warm weather hits can be tough; spring and summer style changes each year, after all. With this in mind, we've gathered five trendy pieces of women's summer clothes for you to rock until fall's chill returns.
1. Printed Shorts
Summer and spring fashion should be fun, and printed shorts certainly fit that bill. Their bright colors and patterns give an eye-catching twist to your staple casual daytime outfit. An easy yet stylish way to balance out the colors, patterns, and graphics on these shorts is to pair them with a neutral-colored top—a light or waffle-weave sweater on chilly summer nights or a blouse-blazer combo at work, for instance. Finish the look with some flats or chunky heels.
2. Cropped Tops
The beauty of these pieces is their versatility. You'll regularly see crop tops with open shoulders, plunging necklines, or accents like flowy fronts and knots of excess fabric. And if you don't feel like showing off too much tummy, it's easy to either find tops with a lower crop or pair a top with high-waisted skirts or jeans. Pairing a cropped top with a high-waisted skirt won't just help cover up a bit more; combining those two items with some strappy gladiator sandals gives a relaxed, comfortable, and breathable summer look.
3. Bomber Jackets
While the classic look for this throwback item is leather with a pair of aviators, the piece's recent surge in popularity has also given its wearers some softer, chicer style options. Satin bombers are particularly snazzy choices for the occasional cool spell in spring, and it's not uncommon to see bomber jackets with flourishes like intricate embroidery or varsity-jacket-inspired designs. Combining your bomber jacket with something as simple as a plain white T-shirt, some distressed jeans, and a pair of boots gives you an effortlessly cool, chic look.
4. Graphic Tees
Expressing your personality through style usually involves a decent amount of subtlety. That's not the case with the graphic tees, which put your likes, tastes, and beliefs front and center. If you're wondering how to wear a graphic T-shirt beyond classic denim (never a bad idea, by the way), they can look just as good dressed up with a skirt, blazer, and a good pair of heels.
5. Boyfriend Jeans
They're a welcome break from the staple skinny pairs in your closet, and they make a must-have addition to your warm-weather wardrobe. Like bomber jackets before them, these baggy, comfortable jeans look great with embroidered designs. They're also frequently made with distressed rips and torn-out segments. Jeans are a casual-outfit staple, so don't shy away from going all in when deciding how to wear boyfriend jeans. To do so, pair your jeans with some tennis shoes and a track jacket for a relaxed athleisure look.
