If the runways were any indication, we’re in for a pretty great year of fashion. This summer season, give trends like tribal and bohemian a try, mixed in with wardrobe classics like shirtdresses, fun flats and sneakers. And of course, don’t forget color: There’s no better time to “Live in Color” than this summer – a season of fashion trends defined by how we mix, match and play with a repertoire of colors.
Here, celebrity fashion stylist, Ilaria Urbinati – whose clients include Nina Dobrev, Bradley Cooper, Ty Burrell and Lizzy Caplan – provides the essential items you need to be chic and colorful when it’s toasty outside.
Blue & White is the New Black & White
“I love this look in art inspired prints, stripes and color block dresses. Complement the blues in this look with AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses in Honey.”
“The pantone color ‘Marsala’ has been dubbed the “color of the moment” because this rich, full red looks great on everything from a fun dress to a lipstick to a funky scarf. Rock your AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses in Gemstone Green to make your eyes pop and contrast against the deep mahogany and red tones.”
Floral on Fleek
“Floral is here to stay, and I love putting a spin on this feminine trend by incorporating an upbeat, 70’s-themed, psychedelic look. Try a flowy floral blouse in dark browns, harvest golds, avocado greens and dusty turquoises. Pair with Brilliant Blue AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses for a far out look.”
“Want that worldly vacation feel even while staying put? “Global Soul”-themed pieces make a fashion statement when they show up in bold prints and vibrant colors like oranges, reds, greens and blues. This trend pairs perfectly with bright global-inspired jewelry and vibrant AIR OPTIX® COLORS contact lenses.”
“Continuing with the 70’s vibe, boho is back on trend, but in a more girly way than the last time it was in style. Think peasant blouses, colorful embroidery, boho prints, eyelets and printed cottons as well as gladiator sandals and fringe which scream laid back summer style – a perfect uniform for this summer’s music festivals.”
“I love the California girl trend. This look is less groovy 70’s and more minimal laid back. Neutrals, whites, tans and clean lines in suede and leather and linen make this look far and away the biggest trend for spring and summer and one that will carry over easily into the fall.”
