Fashion trends for the summer

We’re currently in that familiar mid-summer time of short college classes, store sales, heat waves, and hurricanes. It’s the time to of cutoff shorts, to let the beach towels fly and to always have sunscreen and deodorant on hand.
While this season has become popular for the sun and vacation and trying new diets, for the typical college fashionmonger, the trends are equally important. And for college students in particular, the summertime can be difficult to keep up-to-date with the latest trends because of classes and work.
So, below are a few on- going fashion trends that can hopefully add flavor to your closet.
Hats, futuristic or vintage sunglasses and statement earrings are in for ladies fashion. For example, pair a Baker Boy hat or wide-brimmed hat, vintage sunglasses, with shoulder-grazing earrings for a trendy look and an outfit that is sure to be a summer favorite.
As the one of the most versatile clothing articles, denim hasn’t completely lost its style in this new age. For the latest trends, try a denim dress with your favorite pair of shoes and accessories for a look that can be worn anywhere. Also, denim overalls are back in, as are denim skirts. Try them with a neutral top for a comfortable, modern look.
Women’s rompers and jumpsuits are at a popularity high, proving a minimal look for a stylish outfit. Depending on the style and color, a jumpsuit could read professional or casual. With just a belt, necklace, sandals and sunglasses with a hat if preferred, you’re ready to either soak up the summer vibes or take photos with filters.
One of the joys of rompers and jumpsuits is that they flatter all body shapes, especially those with belted styles.
As for shoes: platforms, block heel sandals, ankle ties, and slides are in.
For men: hats and shoes are the way to go. If you’re the type who’s still into fedoras, trilby and the Indiana Jones can both be worn for various occasions.
Straw hats are a good, traditional fail-safe to fall back to, providing a range of styles from beach vibes to jazz. The standard baseball cap or snapback flat bills are in style year-round.
As for shoes: canvas sneaker and sandals are great for casual wear. Boat shoes can provide either a prepster look, while wool runners provide a good fit for an array of activity including the gym. Oxfords, suede, and loafers  are great for office or professional settings.
