Each year, summer comes and goes, and so do the fashion trends. Shades, shorts, and sandals are always in when the warm weather arrives, but a closer look at seasonal style reveals unique trends to try each year. This summer, try one (or all) of these hot fashion trends this summer.

Neon/Bright and Bold

If the idea of neon gives you bad ’90s nightmares, try this trend by starting small. Accessorize your outfit with a vivid necklace, bright nail polish, or a fluorescent purse. Want to amp up your look? Have fun with neon colours like lime green, hot pink, or electric purple.

Polish: Revlon Nail Art Neon in Atomic Pink, $9

Printed Pants or Shorts

A printed pant or short should not be feared; pair it with a basic top, and you’re ready for some fun in the sun. Try floral, Aztec, stripes, Hawaiian, animal, checker, or watercolour prints for an effortless look.

Pencil Skirts

Try this sexy and sophisticated trend with a hemline that hits just above the knee, at the knee, or below the knee. For extra style points, try a printed pencil skirt or pair it with a fluorescent top.

Transparent Heels & Accessories

Reveal a little more of yourself with transparent heels and accessories. Lucite clutches, plastic bangles, and transparent heels are a simple way to add edge to your outfit. Incorporate one of these items into your summer style, and you’ll be anything but invisible.

Low Heels

This summer, low heels are practical and stylish. Give your feet a break from sky-high stilettos and try this trend in sandals, Mary Janes, pumps, slingbacks, or wedges.
