Every year fashion trends are set and decided for all seasons, however because of Covid-19, 2020 has been such a weird year for everyone, we might have become a bit clueless about what’s on-trend and what isn’t. As the warmer temperatures rise it’s time to check what summer trends are on our radar.

Yes, we’ve been lazing around in sweatpants, leggings and baggy clothes and have adapted the new loungewear trend to suit the ‘staying at home’ lockdown regulation. But as the world reopens it’s now time to ditch the baggy pants and hoodies and be on-trend with the latest summer fashion.

Here are 5 essential summer must-haves to look out for on your next shopping trip. 

Any kind of a mini dress in summer works. This summer the cute baby doll dress has made a comeback with adorable designs and fun colours. On the red carpet, musician Lizzo wore an orange one-shoulder, ruffled and tiered baby doll dress by fashion designer Valentino. The orange shade complimented her skin beautifully and the ruffles accentuated her figure. The volume gives a sense of playfulness and she kept her accessories and jewellery to a minimum. It’s an exciting choice for an event such as a beach wedding and it is best paired with white sneakers or strappy sandals.

A summer classic and all-time favourite, a maxi dress is a definite to have in your closet. Whether you prefer a minimal or daring choice of design and print these long dresses will get you all the compliments wherever you go. They have a breezy feel and flow as you walk giving you that summer vibe plus they are perfect for any body shape. Pair it with strappy sandals or plain white sneakers, for a formal event you can wear platform heel or a wedge sandal.

The puffed sleeve trend has been coming and going since the ’80s and this season it’s made yet another comeback. Designers have been very creative in reinventing this trend by incorporating new textures for a fresher and updated look. Puffed sleeves take a simple dress or top from ordinary straight to extraordinary. The sleeves add height and dimension with an extra luxe look and feel. This trend was strongly visible at the Spring/Summer 2020 runway shows and would be the perfect addition to your wardrobe this summer. It’s wearable for any occasion and suitable for day or night.

Top off any outfit this summer with a bucket hat to achieve that cool and casual feel to your outfit. Adding a bucket hat as an accessory to your outfit makes you look extra fabulous bringing the summer mood while keeping you protected from the sun. Bucket hats can go with any outfit from dresses to jeans. Choose bright solid colours as to not take away from your outfit, and when going for a printed bucket hat opt for paisley-like pattern instead of a flower one.

Whether you are fanatical for trends or more toward classic pieces, the strappy sandal is undoubtedly the ‘It’ shoe of summer and an absolute must-have. These minimalist shoes can be styled with just about anything, from work dresses to printed pant suits to wedding-guest dresses, jumpsuits and everything in between. So don’t be shy, grab a bold, brightly coloured pair and start having some wardrobe fun!
