Where has the summer gone?

Every year I find it crazy how quickly the trends move into the next season when we’re only halfway through the current one.  This year is no exception, summer is still in bloom but the A/W13 season is already upon us! But let’s not get too hasty, there are still some great items and looks out there for the summer season which we shouldn’t let pass us by! I’ve picked a few of my favourite items from the boohoo website to show you lovely people what’s still trending.

Summer Days

I love pastel shades, lighter colours always make me feel summery and a lot cooler! You can never go wrong with your basic denim shorts and crop tops; you can mix and match them with anything. The ripped design on the shorts just adds that extra effect and is a popular timeless feature. Shorts are great for any season; you can always add a pair of tights or leggings underneath for when it starts to get a bit chilly! I’m a firm believer in heels in any outfit, casual or dressy. So when I saw these wedges, I immediately thought comfort and character. These chunky wedges with the loose-knit oversized jumper will emphasise your casual look yet give you the ultimate summer street style.

I had to include this playsuit into the summer mix because I think the colours are gorgeous. It’s really feminine, pretty and you can mix and match it with any of these accessories for the perfect botanical look.

Summer Nights

For the evening, I picked this lace embellished dipped hem dress. I absolutely love the detail and with lace proving to be a prominent pick for the summer, I doubt it will fade out as we move into A/W13. I matched the dress with simple black accessories to help draw out the lace feature - anything too extreme could overshadow the dress and make the outfit too busy.

The great thing about still buying for summer now is that you can always wear the basics next year! Trends come back around so you could always specialise in a little D.I.Y. to update your outfits. I re-worked my old denim shorts and jumpers by adding a few studs and lace and have had people come up to me asking where I had bought them from!

What were your favourite trends this summer? Are there any which could see carrying into the next season?
