Some of the hottest trends for summer—slip dresses, silk fabrics, chambray ensembles, fashionable layers, and edgy fringes—have emerged in the season’s most popular color: blue. From navy and cobalt to denim and slate, designer brands, such as Alice & Olivia, Tory Burch, and Theory, have incorporated various shades of blue into their seasonal collections. Among those collections are looks highlighting summer’s top trends, which are both notably versatile and minimalistic, altering the way women define casual and dressy. For instance, who knew a slip dress could transform so effortlessly by simply swapping sneakers for heels?
As we all know, shopping can sometimes be a challenge, especially when there are multiple ways to wear a particular trend. However, our experts at Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant can help you navigate these new fashions with finesse. Plus, with our Sweet Summer Sale happening now, you can snag these looks for 70% off.
Check out these five wearable trends in summer’s most popular color, available exclusively at Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant!
Of the many lingerie-as-outerwear trends steadily on the rise, the slip dress is the most loved. Combining both comfort and sexiness, the versatile 90s-inspried style can be worn both casually or elegantly. For a fun day date, layer a basic tee underneath and add a pair of white sneakers. For a girl’s night on the town, opt for heels and a clutch to create a polished, feminine flair.
Following the same lingerie-to-outerwear trend, silk has been the fabric of choice for many designers this season, and this silk midi-skirt from Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant mimics the cut of the classic half-slip. Don’t think that silk is merely for a formal affair, though; the fabric can be paired with a casual top for a laid-back look or with another flowing silk piece for a more refined ensemble.
Borrowing from the bohemian vibes of the 1970s, chambray is making a sophisticated comeback. Lightweight and breathable, this chambray combination is the perfect summertime look for any casual occasion. And this Gwynn’s favorite is now 70% off during our Sweet Summer Sale!
There’s no denying that bare shoulders are all the craze this season, however, if strapless styles aren’t your thing, try layering a tailored white button-down top underneath to provide modesty, professionalism, or just an alternate get-up in your wardrobe. If you’re unsure about how to layer with ease, let our style experts at Gwynn’s of Mount Pleasant help you piece together the right separates to perfect this look.
Deconstructed and intentional, frayed hems are making a bold comeback this season in both apparel and shoes. From the unfinished bottoms of jeans and tops to the edges of heels and sandals, this distressed raw finish has become the look of the year—so go ahead and let you frayed ends show both this season and into fall!
