Classic Summer Trends Making a Comeback

Keeping it simple has always been a good fashion mantra, along with ‘quality never goes out of style’. Bearing these in mind, we think its advice that many should take on board when buying for the summer, especially if you want those summer fashion purchases to see you through to next year too. So what classic summer trends should you be considering this season? And what’s the best way to save money on these purchases?

Well, when it comes to money, the first thing you should consider is using the online voucher codes to save. Shopping in person is all very well if you want something there and then, but it also means you miss out on exclusive online discounts, sometimes up to 20% off new season items. In terms of classic summer trends, you don’t get more classic than Gap voucher codes – they can save you money on all those clean lines, preppy cuts and attractive colour palettes that will suit most wardrobes, and even if your personal style is slightly more eclectic then you can still benefit from those great quality denim and cotton pieces that you can dress up or down as you wish. But what about these classic summer trends then? Well, bearing Gap in mind, we’ve chosen to highlight a few key styles, taking inspiration from their own range…

Americana

Get the classic stars and stripes influence without going overboard – think casual but stylish baggy tees and vests, subtle designs, and all paired with the classic denim.

Linen

Linen in is this year, and we’re not just talking shirts and pants. Hop on board the linen train with maxi dresses, blazers and the softest of soft shorts too – all perfect for a comfortable, stylish summer.

White

It’s seems like an obvious choice for warmer weather, but how many of us are actually brave enough to buy white items that we can wear every day? Not too many at a guess. Maybe this is the year to go with the flow and feel light and airy with a loose-fitting white garment.

There’s nothing boring about sticking to classic designs – when everyone else is throwing out their own wardrobe items because there’s not in keeping with current trends, you’ll have plenty of great quality pieces to fall back on, season after season. Whatever your budget, there’s bound to be great quality, great value items available, especially if you search for online savings before you buy your classic summer garments.

Vierra White Sports Watch

For reviews.

The story of Vierra watches begins with two college friends, Eric and Jeremy, who live their lives inspired by the phrase, “Time is always ticking, so do what excites you.” The brand that they created was meant to inspire others to live a more adventurous existence and enjoy all that life has to offer. This particular line of watches that Eric and Jeremy started is meant to be the perfect accessory for whatever road you travel.

The White/Gold Vierra silicone watch is the epitome of both trend and durability. White watches were originally thought to be only for Spring and Summer wear, but in today’s fashion scene they are a color for all year round. The crisp white silicone will give you a contrast to any outfit that you own and be a durable companion on your life’s adventures. The gold-tone bezel and linear numeral markers are simplistic and modern enough to be able to cross over the “completely casual” line to be worn with a dressier look. It also contains a quality Miyota Japanese movement with a low-drain battery and is safe to wear while swimming and surfing.

Silicone watches have been an ongoing trend and is popular with both women and men alike. The Vierra White/Gold watch is substantial enough in size to be able to be worn by a man, but is not so overwhelming that it cannot be worn by a woman and with the price of $59, a very popular range to be afforded by all. However, if white is not your style, then they also have a black/yellow and black/blue version for the same price.

The best part of wearing white? It’s like a blank canvas, dress it up with a pop of color or pizzaz with a bright pair of Shourouk earrings or a fun print on a canvas bag. Or go full on, white on white by playing it up with different textures and materials.

White as snow sweaters are a fabulous way to show off your style. Lauren Ralph Lauren Long-Sleeve Cable-Knit Crew-Neck Sweater is a great white option. We love the cable knit texture and gold buttons for added interest. And again, don’t be coy about adding bursts of color to the ivory ensemble with some choice accessories – just check out these designer charm bracelets on sale for a few ideas.

Women’s Fashion Advice – How To Survive The Cold In Style

They say the best way to keep warm during below zero temperatures is to layer. The first step is to keep your body heat in. Take a tip from dancers who always use thick tights to keep their muscles warm. Make sure to wear something light but that’s fitted. We recommend tights, leggings, and much of what Under Armor has to offer.

Your next layer needs to help block out the wind and still keep you comfy and cozy. We love big chunky sweaters like Lauren Ralph Lauren’s Long-Sleeve Ombre Cable-Knit Turtleneck for those freezing winter days. These extra large knits look great with a skirt but when it’s Polar Vortex cold make sure to layer pants over your tights or leggings. If you can’t afford the RL look right now, check out Brand Boudoir for equally fashionable yet discounted winter tops.

Another amazing trick to keep heat in is doubling up on your socks. There are few things worse on a fridgid winter day than cold feet. Adding an extra pair before slipping on your boots may make all the difference!

Lastly, you need a great all weather coat. A coat lined with goose feathers will help you brave the sub-zero temperatures. Add your favorite winter accessories; scarf, gloves, and hat and you’re ready to take on the streets (or at least the 15 feet between your car and your front door).
