Denim is one of the staples in every person’s wardrobe. Denim comes in many forms, from jackets, to pants, to skirts and dresses. They are very easy to pair with many things, making it one of the most versatile fabrics in fashion. Whether it’s pairing denim on denim (a denim skirt with a denim shirt) or making your denim item your statement piece, there are many ways to stay on this very popular trend, and one of the easiest to try for this summer. It even ties in with the ‘70s revival for this summer.
The ‘70s Revival
The ‘70s was one of the most fun eras in fashion. It was very experimental, with men and women playing with androgyny. This trend takes inspiration “from” the hippie scene, disco, and the later revival of mod in the ‘70s. Bold prints, flares, peasant blouses, mini, and a-line skirts are a must for this trend. Not only can your clothes channel this trend but your hair as well. For women, give yourself some thick wavy curls and add a bit of volume to the crown of your head. If you have layers, channel your inner Farrah Fawcett and curl out your layers to give you that iconic look. For men, you can be a little daring and style your hair a la Ziggy Stardust or flip it back with a part in the middle and you are ready to go.

Bold Prints, Suits, & Sandals
This summer is all about the bold prints. Stripes, geometric, jacquard, and flower prints are a must for this season and many retailers out there are already embracing this trend, making it very easy to sport. Don’t be afraid to mix flowers with jacquard prints or stripes. The mixing of prints make a bold statement and gives a very unique feel to your outfit, but it is an art that needs practice in order to master.
The prints come in a variety of pieces. From printed joggers, pants, and culottes, to amazing tailored suits, bomber jackets, and board shorts. Dressing up and dressing down prints is as easy as putting on a simple T-shirt and jeans. For this summer, you can pair up your printed suit with your favorite sandals to give that casual and relaxed look to your suit. There are many options out there for amazing sandals like jelly sandals or harness sandals, and classics like the Teva or Birkenstocks.
