Top Colours and Materials to Wear This Summer

By 12th August 2014April 11th, 2017No Comments

Colour blocking is big this season, but which shades should you wear? You might also be curious about which types of fabrics you should put on to stay in fashion. Of course, you can always opt for your favourite colours and materials no matter what kind of outfit you end up wearing. But if you can’t make up your mind and really want to be on trend this year, the following colours and materials are the best ones to wear.

Red, White and Blue Are in This Season

You don’t have to wear all three colours at once. In fact, you probably shouldn’t unless you want to end up looking like an American flag. Plus, it’s encouraged to wear one shade from head to toe this year. Just pick the one that most flatters you. The men on the runways this season are rocking white suits, while the women are pairing white slip dresses with tailored jackets in the same colour. Of course, white T-shirts are classics and look good with just about anything.

If you prefer to wear blue, you really can’t go wrong with any of the many shades. Royal blue happens to be a favourite this summer, but cobalt and azure are also popular. If red is more your thing, you have just as many options. One of the most well-liked colors is cherry red–but you should choose something based on what looks good with your skin tone and the rest of your clothing. For example, if you have beige, caramel or brown skin, a shade of red with hints of orange in it should work well. If you are fair skinned, choose a cool red with a hint of plum instead.

Frills, Pleats and Sheer Fabric Are Recommended Choices for Summer

The material your clothing is made of is just about as important as the colour it incorporates. This summer, for instance, sheer fabrics are in, which is great news when you need to cool off. Both men and women have been seen wearing sheer clothing. Wearing a sheer jacket over a T-shirt or tank top is a good place to start, as is tossing a sheer dress or coverup over a bathing suit on holiday.

When you need to choose a skirt or dress that will please the fashion police, go with frills or pleats. Luckily, it’s pretty easy to find such materials when browsing apparel in most of the shops this summer. If you want to be really trendy, choose a shirt dress that has pleats or frills, maybe with a belt around the waist, since this look is in lately. Pair it with sporty sneakers for an even more fashionable result. Of course, men can take advantage of this fashion trend, too, since pleated trousers and shirts are easy to find.

If you’re not really comfortable wearing any of these colours or materials, but you want to look stylish, you can always let your accessories represent the trends. For example, if red is not exactly your best colour, just add a red scarf or bag to your outfit. The same advice applies if you’re not brave enough to step out in sheer clothing this summer.
