It's officially boat/garden party season! (Can I get a whoop whoop!!!)
Sunshine shindigs on the sea or by the docks are a great way to enjoy the summer but you can't just rock up, you have to look the part too. Let's inspire you a little with trends from the past and present.
FABRIC AND FIT
Fabric and fit matter even more in summer. Roasting like a Sunday chicken should not be an option so you want breathable fabrics like cotton, denim, linen and Rayon.
Along with wise fabric choices, you also want loose and flowing fits. Tighter fits will create less space for your skin to breathe and practically no space for that fresh summer air.
SHOES AND MOCCASINS
Switch up your trainers and boots for some slip on shoes, moccasins or boat shoes. For the ladies, espadrilles, mules and sandals.
HATS, BAGS AND SUNNIES
Sunnies are a must for summer. Every high street and high end store will have them and this year's sunnies trend pays homage to the 90's. Get yourself a pair of these and you'll be the trendiest cat of the party.
Then you have the straw trend that just keeps on giving. The trend has overflowed into hats as well as bags, with many designers experimenting with shapes and textures.
While I wouldn't suggest wearing dark colours like black or navy blue, we're mindful that fashion is fashion and sometimes black just works. However, if you want to avoid absorbing all of the sun's rays and reduce the amount of sweat by the bucket load, we suggest light colours and neutral tones.
This includes white, cream, tan,light grey, lighter shades of blue (for that nautical vibe) or more vibrant colours such as mustard, the family of pinks, nature greens,yellow and metallic rose gold.
Don't forget bold and daring prints that will add more texture and movement to your outfits.
So that's it from me, I'm off to stunt these trends on a boat off the coast of Spain somewhere! Share your own outfit ideas and boat parties with us on our social media platform by tagging us or using #trenditfashionblog
