WE ARE FULLY FOLLOWING behind new trends, but many of them raise a lot of questions: how suitable is it for life? How and with what to wear crop tops, hairy sneakers, plush jackets and transparent everything? This time we figure out what the designers are proposing to wear this summer.

Dress with puff sleeves, bag
and gloves to match, sandals with thin straps
Shrimps designers suggest an easily reproducible image for a celebration in the open air. Puff sleeves do not leave the catwalk (we observed this trend last year) and now adorn dresses in the spirit of neo-romanticism and blouses with rows of small buttons. Gloves are a bit theatrical, especially lace, but if you want to focus on something other than jewelry or shoes, this is perfect.
Floral dress, loafers and baguette
A midi dress with an emphasis on the waist is the most successful silhouette for the city: with a lax dress code, you can easily walk into the office in such a way (just throw a light linen jacket over it), and it will look appropriate at a party. The easiest way to achieve a retro effect is with the help of textures - bags or accessories with imitation of crocodile skin - and recognizable accessories like glasses with rectangular frames.
Floor-length dress, sports sandals and panama
The perfect set for every day - especially if you don't want to spend time getting ready in the morning - a maxi-length dress, comfortable hiker sandals and a Panama hat. Optionally - socks if the morning is chilly, and a basket or backpack instead of a baguette bag: they will fit both a gym uniform and a pair of ping-pong rackets. A loose-fitting dress will not let you down on a trip either - you can wear a swimsuit under it if you have a long day at the beach ahead.
Jacket-robe, top and skirt in linen style, string bag
Lingerie-style skirts have replaced slip dresses and are ready to pretend to be the main summer outfit. We love the simple blend of a skirt and top in smooth fabric like the Vestiaire Collective, which looks as boudoir as possible with a robe and roomy leopard-print tote bag. If the day is long, sandals with thin straps can be replaced with your favorite sneakers or comfortable slippers like birkenstock.
Sheer dress, crop top and cycling shorts
A safe option for those who do not dare to wear cycling shorts and crop tops in the city of solo - just throw a light dress of a suitable degree of transparency over it, as in the lookbook of the Moscow brand fy: r. To complicate the two-layer look, we advise you not to limit yourself to minimalistic accessories - you can choose sandals with decor and earrings with crystals.
Panama with ribbons, off the shoulder dress and wedge espadrilles
This spring, another burst of interest among designers in panamas has turned utilitarian hats into sophisticated models with wide ribbons and ribbons. In the city and in nature, it is even more comfortable in these - you do not have to worry that the next gust of wind will take your hat away. You can see a variation on the combination of such a headdress with a dress at Mirstores: a simple dress with a dropped shoulder line, a knitted bag and comfortable wedge or flat espadrilles.
Linen top, leather shorts
and a silk scarf
By the end of summer, your favorite cycling shorts can get sore, and then they want to change to something less athletic. For example, leather Bermuda shorts like those released by Bottega Veneta. In autumn, it is enough to add a fringed jacket and Cossacks to them to feel like in the Wild West. Mules will allow you to dashingly dance in this way all night, and closer to autumn they can be replaced with sneakers or brogues that are not afraid of rain and puddles.
Corset and straight jeans
Corsets are of the same interest to designers this summer as sporty cropped bras, lingerie-style tops and light shirts with puff sleeves.And we are glad: such a model is the best way to refresh your everyday look. Just put on your favorite jeans or denim shorts, and change your usual white T-shirt to a corset. Life hack: if you are confused by the abundance of a naked body, feel free to wear a corset over a silk blouse or all the same white T-shirt.
