Topshop Trends That Will Make You Sizzle This Summer

This summer is all about bold prints, cute pastels and lots of denim. Topshop never fails to deliver when it comes to unique style, and this season really breaks the mould.
Printed T-shirts are massive right now, and I love them! Couple them with a pair of bright leggings and some retro sunglasses to create a casual, yet quirky look . Bold skater skirts combined with patterned crop-tops ooze 1950s glam and are great for those hot summer days.

Ankle socks are a must for the more experimental fashionista , these lace trim lilac socks above would work great with some comfy plimsoles and a patterned skirt. Denim is your best friend this summer, shirts can be worn with leggings, or tied into crop tops and paired with shorts to create a fun festival look. The denim shirt above has a faded look, finished off perfectly with colourful studs.
Maxi Skirts are also a must. They are simple, and so comfortable to wear. Topshop sell a range, from sheer pastel colours, to striking paisley. I recently bought a plain black maxi skirt for £18, as it goes with almost anything, from the icon tank tee further up the page, to an edgy animal print bralet.
For a special summery occasion, it’s all about the sheer look. I absolutely love this empire maxi dress below in bold coral. Classy and cute, this outfit wouldn’t be complete without gold jewellery and some chunky wedges to make your legs look even longer.

The style for this season is diverse, but one message is clear- the brighter, the better. So embrace those prints and don’t be ashamed to try something new! The website has a massive sale on at the moment, so head over there and treat yourself!
