Ahram Online highlights the trends that will influence your wardrobe choices this summer


Below are some of the latest trends to take you through the summer in style.

The 80s are back with a bang

Although the eighties’ trends were always the least favoured by the majority, who look back at them with a bit of dismay, fashion experts have decided it is time to have a fresh take on the decade, and bring back its most iconic looks: broad padded shoulders, bold metallic colours and big jackets.

The off-shoulder/one-shoulder trend

Tops and dresses with off-shoulder or one-shoulder cuts are one of the main looks lingering from past seasons, and there are endless ways to style this look.

##

##

Fifty shades of pink

Although the colour palette governing this summer’s fashion choices is generally bold, hues of pink with all its shades stood out, flooding the runway.

##

##

Florals

Whether embroided on shirts and jackets or covering the whole fabric, florals are still big this season, with collections being awash with flowers in all forms.

##

##

Slogan shirts and tops

The very unconventional trend of flashing a slogan or expressive words on clothes has dominated many designs this season, partly due to the wave of political polarization in many places around the world.

##

##

Sheer fabrics

Models have been spotted trotting down the runway in what has become a summer staple: sheer fabrics.

##

Ruffles and bell sleeves

You cannot go wrong this season with ruffles that have been trending for a while and evolved this season. Another essential this summer are shirts and tops with bell sleeves, or drop shoulders.

##

##

Stripes

Bold and wide stripes have been all over recently, in every form you can imagine.

##

##

White dresses

Nothing says summer like a fresh white dress, so refresh your supply of crisp warm-weather options with picks of your choice; you will find an abundance this season.

##

##

Deconstructed shirts

Shirts are an essential this summer in many forms: ruffled, embroidered, over-sized sleeves and peek-a-boo cut-outs.
