12 epic summer fashion trends to know about 


Whether you're wearing these looks to safely celebrate a lift on lockdown, or for a quick mirror selfie to keep the Instagram feed ticking before heading straight back into those trusty training suit bottoms, this is a judgement-free zone.



1. WAIST FLOSS

Remember a few years ago when we all tried (and many failed) to master the floss? Well thankfully this season's incarnation is much easier to get to grips with, as it requires far less physical coordination and little more than a bare-midriff and some thin straps of fabric to succeed.

2. MONOCHROME

One of the biggest colour trends of the SS21 runways was, in fact, a lack of colour altogether. Black and white pieces were everywhere, and lend themselves perfectly to that feeling of renewal as we kick off our fresh new loungewear-free (eek) aesthetic.

3. OPEN BACKS

One of the sexiest trends of this spring, bare backs are the perfect way to show a little (or a lot of) skin for those who tend to prefer keeping their legs/décolletage/waist under wraps. Opt for a subtle, billowing fabric for a more tentative take, or go full-throttle via strapped, form-fitting pieces.

4. SHEER GOWNS

A trend that can be interpreted in many ways depending on the situation we find ourselves in, the sheer gown is the perfect throw-over piece as you leave the beach for the day (okay, we're dreaming) but works equally well over a slip dress for an at-home date night or even as a v. sexy pyjama alternative for a particularly special *night in*.
Spotted at: (L-R) Valentino, Alberta Ferretti and Dior - as well as, Chanel, Emporio Armani, Sportmax and Miu Miu





5. BRALETTES

This trend has reappeared for the last couple of seasons, but summer 2021's incarnation sees more variety in its offering. Wear yours alone with shorts on holiday (fingers crossed those happen at some point), with high-waisted trousers for a dinner or as a layer over the top of dresses, shirts or tops for a more contemporary aesthetic.
