#SummerBloggerChallenge | Summer Fashion Trends


Hi girls and welcome back to the Summer Blogger Challenge! This week it's all about summer trends. I've decided to write about 3 of my favourite summer fashion trends and I've also picked my top two items that are in stores at the moment from each trend. I'll be talking about two must have prints, denim shorts and kimonos..... I hope you like my picks!




               Vero Moda shorts - €24.95                                            Boohoo playsuit - €16


Various different prints hit the shops every summer but this year the tropical and fruit prints have been extremely popular so far. After all, nothing screams Summer more than a bold tropical or fruit print! These shorts from Vero Moda are a gorgeous example of the tropical print.... The coral colour is beautiful for the summer and it seems to be very popular at the moment. As the shorts are quite eye catching, I'd let them be the focal point of the outfit and pair it with a simple white t-shirt, nude sandals and dainty gold jewellery. 
How cute is this pineapple playsuit? And it's only €16! Bargain or what?! It's perfect for throwing over a bikini if you're going away on holidays but if not then you could pop on a black leather jacket, a black floppy hat and a pair of black ankle boots and you'll have a great summery yet appropriate outfit for the Irish/Uk summer. 


Zara denim shorts - €27.95                                        Topshop denim shorts

Denim shorts are always a key piece in my summer wardrobe. I always bring them away on holidays as they're just so handy because they go with everything so I know I'll always get lots of wear out of them. Pair them with a crop top and a pair of sandals and you can create an effortless, casual look or if you want a dressier look you could replace the sandals with a pair of wedges and add a statement necklace. You can also pop on a pair of tights underneath them and you'll be set for the lovely, rainy weather ;-)
I love these high waisted shorts from Topshop - the light wash is perfect for the summer and they're also perfect for crop tops (I wouldn't want to be shown' off too much of my midriff now! Ha ha!). I love the look of crochet on denim shorts - It's so elegant and chic looking! I actually have a pair quite similar to these. I wore them in my holiday style diary post if you're interested to see how I styled them. 




River Island kimono - €37                                          Warehouse kimono - €47

And last but not least is the beloved Kimono! They're perfect for festivals, covering up at the pool/beach or even just for an everyday look. When paired with a pair of black or denim shorts, a slogan tee and a long chain they make for a great festival look or pair them with a pair of jeans when the weather is a bit chilly - perfect for us Irish gals with our unpredictable weather! Celeb's such as Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner are also fans of this trend too. What do you think of the kimono?


That's it for my favourite summer trends! What do you think of these trends? And what trends will you be wearing this summer?


Love,
Cliona xx

  4. Denim shorts are quickly becoming one of my favourite items in my wardrobe. I attempt to rock them in Winter too (with tights of course) but I can only stand having my legs turn into icicles for so long.
