The unofficial start of summer is about to kick off with a weekend of fun festivities. There are endless ways to celebrate our patriotic holiday weekend, meaning there are an infinite number of ways to dress for them! Before you start your weekend, take a peek at these 2018 Summer Fashion Trends from Carlisle. You’ll find everything you need from cool, casual pieces, to refined and formal choices, to cheery patriotic colors. All that you want to be perfectly styled for this holiday weekend is here.
Here are the 2018 Summer Fashion Trends
White is a versatile summer staple and the perfect hue for our patriotic soirees. White is a flawless choice for either casual or elegant get-togethers. All white outfits can be effortless-looking and breezy for a daytime barbecue or rooftop party. Or, white can be striking and super chic for nighttime functions. Keep things casual with espadrilles or pair your white with a bright jacket or a bold bag. Dress up in white with bell-sleeves or ruffles for a feminine touch. The sky’s the limit with possibilities for your white weekend wear.
Summer dresses are a flattering, carefree choice for any of your Memorial Day plans. Summer dresses are effortless and comfortable, yet you’ll always be dressed up and ready for anything. Dresses are always a fantastic choice because they can be happily worn for any occasion. It’s finally dress season! Pair your flowy dress with a straw bucket bag and sandals for a casual picnic look or go dressy with heels for a cocktail hour.
Silk or linen pants not only look great for oceanside appearances and outdoor parties, but the breezy fabric is perfect for keeping cool in the heat. From cropped to wide-leg varieties, there is a style for everyone to be comfortable in. These bottoms are easy to pack for a getaway and a breeze to slip on for a day of Memorial Day celebrations while staying perfectly put together. Keep it simple yet stylish with an off the shoulder blouse, sandals and a Bermuda hat.
It’s fun to be festive, and it’s the reason why we celebrate, right? Without going over-the-top in all red, white, and blue, it’s easy to honor the holiday with a nod to the colors of the flag. Add classic gingham print pants or a ruffled blouse for a touch of Americana. Gingham is perfect for picnic attire. Try adding poppy or sky blue hues to your weekend wardrobe. Stripes are plentiful this season and for good reason. Dedicated stripes are an easy way to add a patriotic or even nautical vibe to your weekend wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to add stripes, because many pieces that feature stripes are beautifully placed to be flattering! Vertical stripes are especially flattering and lengthening. Stripes are a classic way to salute the flag while remaining elegantly styled for the season whether you’re at a beach bonfire or a swanky evening celebration.
