As the temperatures warm from the runway to the red carpet, we’re getting inspired by the season’s hottest trends. Whether it’s bold printed shorts, as seen on Barbara Bui’s catwalk, or a dramatic backless dress like Kate Mara wears above, these chic five trends are guaranteed to have you looking hot this summer.
Gams your best asset? Flaunt what you’ve got by drawing the eye to your legs with a bright, eye-catching set of printed shorts. Balanced with a relaxed and solid blouse, as seen on the runway at Barbara Bui and on Solange Knowles, these styles simply can’t be ignored.
We see you, Carven and Eva Mendes! Like the old schoolyard game, these playful styles are coming out of hiding this season.
Leather, for summer? Yes! Take a page from Proenza Schouler and Emmy Rossum: The cold weather fabric can work just as well when the mercury rises-as long as you keep your silhouette airy and colors light.
Show as little (or as much) skin as you’d like-the secret to scoring chic looks like Balenciaga and Elizabeth Banks’s is all in the proportions. An A-line skirt is a demure addition to a denim halter, or pair a mini and boxier blouse if you dare.
Business in the front, party in the back. Nothing gets things started like Azzaro and Kate Mara’s dramatic cutouts. Talk about a big reveal!
