If this year’s summer fashion had a personality, it would be bold, spirited, expressive and optimistic. Case in point: the season’s most-coveted colors – hot pink, neon green and bright orange – say “look at me” and channel a cheerful vibe. Our favorite way to wear them? On a monochromatic power pantsuit, just like Viola Davis’ custom Lafayette 148 New York suit in a sunny shade of lemon or Sara Paulson’s orange jacket-pleated skirt-pants ensemble by Burberry.
If it’s not color that’s drawing attention, then it’s the sparkle, shimmer and shine from sequins, rhinestones, lurex, and more, all meant to be worn whenever inspiration strikes, day or night.
It would not be summer without fashion that displays skin and shows off curves. Skirts are not just short, they’re micro-minis, while the peekaboo trend is still going strong via cut-outs on jumpsuits, catsuits, body-skimming dresses and tops.
