Summer Trends: As Seen in the LA Fashion District

It’s summertime and it sure has been a hot one!

Sure we’re a little late with the summer fashion trends but better late than never, am I right?! Ahead are five summer items almost every fashion-forward fashionista/o has been spotted wearing in the LA Fashion District.

1. Tie-Dye to stay fly

Now to be honest, I was a little afraid of tie-dye at first…but now I’m all for it. A bright color tie-dye T-shirt is my weekend staple! Shirts aren’t all though…a tie-dye hat? Bag? Socks? Tie-dye it up for summer!

2. Bermuda Shorts…because short shorts are out

If you’re a fan of the bike shorts, you’ll be a fan of the bermuda shorts. They are definitely a staple for summer.

3. Matching Sets for a quick outfit

It’s hot and the last thing you want to do is think of a full outfit…enter the matching sets trend! I personally am here for this trend. Who isn’t a fan of a quick, easy, yet still fashionable outfit?!

4. Bright colors for the win

Summer is about living life and having fun! Bright colors are for sure a trend I hope stays forever. I don’t know about you, but bright colors instantly put me in a better mood. #BrightColorsForever

5. Hello shoulder bags

Now you might already be on this trend, but the shoulder bag has definitely made it’s way up this summer. Don’t have one to rock? Check out the Santee Alley for some super cute and affordable options 😉

 

And although some trends of Summer 2019 might not make their way into our closets this year, I 100% promise you’ll be seeing them all over your social media feeds. Happy summer, stay cool and until next time!
