It may seem fashion trends extend coast to coast with the spotlight on celebrities and street style stars from NYC to LA, but evidence shows a lag in trends expanding to the in between. Be a trendsetter in your city and adopt these Summer 2015 fashion trends!
When it was rumored clogs were making its return, people vowed it wouldn’t be a fashion trend they will flirt. But like Birkenstocks, the momentum set by the Prada and Derek Lam runway shows for the clog trend picked up the pace straight into the closets of celebrities and street style stars. A versatile shoe, the clog shoe can work with a dress for date night or give height to a casual daytime dress as seen on The Blonde Saladl. Just remember to keep it in a basic or neutral hue, as it should complement an outfit, not compete for the spotlight.
As a lady’s everyday necessities continue to grow, taking it back to your school days with the backpack trend feels like a no brainer. There is no doubt Michelle Tanner’s book bag has gotten bigger since she has started her popular fashion label, The Row. Worn as the final touch to her laid back style, Mary Kate Olsen chose a textured bag from her signature brand and you can get a similar one here in a color perfect for that summer into fall transition. Don’t limit yourself there! Christine from Fash n Chips, proves the backpack trend is not just reserved for a casual look and can be taken professional, while Marc Jacobs dares you to wear it with your evening’s best. Just choose a bag with ornate details in a shiny fabric.
Going strong since 2013, the crop top shows no signs of stopping, and luckily this season’s runway showed many variations of the crop top trend. Whether you choose the Taylor Swift approach mirrored on the Donna Karan Runway or have no fear of showing the belly button like Zina Charkoplia of Fashion Vibe this look is becoming appropriate for everyone no matter their size or occupation. Choose a crop top next time in replace of the standard tank and jeans, but remember – sex sells only when done modestly.
