Ruffled dress

It’s no secret that the ruffled dress has been making waves in the local fashion scene. It’s the ideal combination of dainty and sultry since the sheer fabric hugs the figure delicately, and it also gives a subtle peek of the skin. Meanwhile, the ruffles would often find themselves cascading down the seams, neckline, and the hem, adding a nice touch of hyper feminine detail. It’s a bit dressy for the day, but you can definitely wear this to the beach or a night out with your friends. Make sure to keep your look simple for a clean and cohesive finish.

Bermuda shorts

Just like the low-rise denim jeans and the mini-skirt, the Bermuda shorts were a staple back in the 90s, too. Often worn with tank tops or cropped graphic tees, this piece is pretty ideal for the summer as it gives you the perfect length that imitates the midi skirt and the classic look of denim. Wear this piece with a simple white tee and white sneakers for an easy outfit, or an oversized graphic tee for the ultimate rugged look.

Neon dressing

We have to say, we’re pretty surprised to see this palette coming back after their era from 2010 to 2012. It was often used in rave culture, but the new iteration has a subtle twist as designers use silhouettes like slinky dresses, crop tops, and even in their selection of shoes. With neons, you can go safe by wearing it with denim jeans or a pair of black or white trousers. But if you want to go bold, feel free to mix and match your neons like blue and orange or pink and purple.

Metallica era

When we tell you fashion swings like a pendulum, this is a perfect example. We went from sheer maxis to mini metallics—giving the same vibe of breathable detail. This is often styles with intimates underneath for an alluring touch or metallic tops worn down with denims. Either way, it’s the best piece to wear that will leave a head-turning effect.

In roses

Whether it’s a choker or it’s a part of the piece, roses are a must to add to your summer wardrobe. It’s the new it-girl of accessories because of its versatility in giving a feminine look or an edgy vibe. It’s often seen on dresses, but you can add the dainty motif by simply wearing a choker or a rosette pin.
