Summer Trends to Follow (or Not)...

Hello all! I've been gone a long time getting our Etsy store up and running and then had the fantastic opportunity to travel around the country for a month! In my travels, I had the chance to  scour the nation for three trends I noticed (and loved) and thought I'd share! Though we're already halfway through the summer, it doesn't mean we can't keep our fingers on the pulse of some fabulous summer trends!

The sheer trend has been strong for the last few years and seems like it's going to continue unabated - not that I'm complaining! Whether it's a full sheer dress, a sheer overlay or sheer cutouts, peekaboo skin is in! The trends are also out on the runways, here are a few versions seen during the Spring collections.

 Christopher Kane
Dion Lee

Here at Street Scene, we certainly get our fair share of sheer items in. Here are my current three favorites:

 1960's White Sheer Lattice and Flower Embellishment Overlay with White Mini Dress
 1960's Brown Mini Tent Dress with Brown Sheer Overlay with Gold Lattice Detail
Late 1940's/Early 1950's Black Sheer Textured Day Dress

The second trend that's floating around is flounced and ruffled detailing! Whether a full dress flounce, flounced necklines or embellishments, they're a fun and feminine way to update an outfit!

JW Anderson

Though the vintage versions we have aren't as statement-making, we've definitely got some great, wearable options for summer!
Late 1960's Blue Floral Print Wiggle Dress with Ruffle Neck and Cuffs
Late 1960's/Early 1970's Cream Prairie Dress with Embroidered Bust and Ruffled Neckline and Hem
 Late 1970's Pink Tiered Flounced Maxi Disco Dress

Finally, my most favorite trend (and one that I've been wearing for years - it's so chic!) is graphic black and white. This combination will never go out of style, but it's having a real moment right now in the fashion world. Here are some examples seen on the runways:

 Alexander Wang
 Michael Kors
 Diane Von Furstenburg

Our black and white options range from day wear, chic work/party wear and one crazy statement suit!

 1980's does 1940's Chic Draped Crepe Dress
 1970's Black and White Striped Textured Maxi Skirt
This 1960's number has all of the trends in one! It's black and white flocked circles are super graphic, the sleeves are sheer and have ruffles at the cuffs! It would be a bit much to wear this all in one outfit, but worn separately, you can really have fun with your style!

As I said before, the summer's almost halfway over, so it's time to get over here and rock some really fabulous trends. I'm back and stationary for a while, so get ready for some more posts from me!

Happy Tuesday!
