Summertime weather makes style versatility is a must. That means some days sleeveless blouses are the way to go, while chilly nights may require more coverage. Summer is the occasion to experiment with different trends and unique pieces.
Here are some of the most popular tops for the season:
Give them the shoulder
Remember the days of one-shoulder-exposed workout tops? That 80’s trend is back this summer, but in a more wearable way. This look can easily transition from day to night by pairing one-sleeve tops with shorts during the former and pants or leggings during the latter. Want to take it a step further? You can rock a blouse that leaves both shoulders bare, either with or without straps. The off-the-shoulder top is one of the trendiest for 2017, according to Harper’s Bazaar, as long as you don’t go down the “Flashdance” athletic wear route!
Bank the tanks
One trend that will never go out of style for the summer are tank tops. Add more of these pieces to your wardrobe this season, and don’t be afraid to incorporate a little extra detail to really stand out! Ruffles and styles that add a touch of sheerness were all over the runway this year, Cosmopolitan shared, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box to amp up your look. Patterns are always a good option when you pair them with basic bottoms or even experiment with a print-on-print outfit.
“Copy festival style and try a boho tunic.”
Looking for an item to wear with those fashionable gladiator sandals that are back in style? Take a clue from festival trends and pair them with a tunic top. These blouses are not only extremely versatile but comfortable and can be found in funky and fun prints that are sure to add some zest to your chic style. Tunic tops can be worn with shorts, jeans, linen pants or skirts skirts or as a dress – making them a trendy choice that will make you look boho fabulous.
Surprise them in peplum
Just because it’s warm doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice fit. Peplum tops accentuate the smallest part of your waist but can be worn loose or tight depending on the occasion. Try a long-sleeve version for work or a tank top style peplum for a night out. These styles also pair perfectly with statement jewelry, so add your necklaces and bracelets to complete the look.
No more heavy coats for winter. Summer ushers in stylish tops in a variety of styles that will leave you looking on trend.
