5 Sizzling Summer Fashion Trends for Teens
Hot days call for cool style, and summer 2017 is crushing hard on carefree combos full of flair. From beach bashes to 4th of July festivities and graduation celebrations, there's a trendy sunny day look for every occasion on your calendar. Here are some quick and easy #OOTD (outfit of the day) inspo to help you pump up your pics.
Make a splash in a one-piece swimsuit. Go for a sassy graphic that declares your mermaid off duty status. Try side cutouts for a more bold take on this classic cut, or give a shiny metallic hue a major moment in the sand. Bonus points for rocking your one-piece as a bodysuit by throwing on some frayed denim shorts, sporty slide sandals and a baseball cap. Did someone say pool party?
When you're getting ready for a hang sesh with your squad, opt for a girlie vibe with a contemporary edge. Maxi skirts are here to stay, and they feel new this season with a high waist. Balance the daring look of a colorful crop top with the sweetness supplied by a flowing, floral-print maxi. A peek of your midriff looks playful and the long skirt keeps you comfortably covered. It's trends on trends when you slip on gladiator sandals, oversized sunnies and loads of bangle bracelets.
The It Neckline
Off-the-shoulder styles are everything this season. Whether you choose a dress or a top, bare shoulders will give your look all the summer feels. Wanna go boho? Wear your favorite off-the-shoulder shirt with cutoff jean shorts and peep toe booties. Now throw on round sunglasses in a bright hue. A floral crown adds the perfect festival finish. If seriously chic is your thing, pair an off-the-shoulder dress with espadrille wedges. Top things off with a floppy hat and head to a picnic in the park.
White Done Right
A timeless summer trend, the color white looks clean and crisp, and all-white outfits are style superheroes. You'll be barbecue-ready in a tie-front tank top with cropped jeans and flip-flops. For an outdoor wedding or graduation party, a sundress with nude pumps looks effortless and breezy. On a side note, monochromatic looks love contrasting accessories, so give your ensemble rock star status with hot pink statement earrings, mirrored aviators or a bright blue clutch.
Say hello to your new uniform: the shirt dress. This timeless piece is winning summer because it's a total chameleon. Catch fireworks in the casually cute look of a sleeveless chambray design. A chevron-striped style is spunky and ready for a shopping spree with the girls. And a belted solid color version easily transitions from office internship to lake house lounging. That's right, this multitasker doubles as a swimsuit cover-up. Just ditch the belt, swap ballet flats for thong sandals, and prepare for fun in the sun.
