Affordable Summer 2013 Fashion Trends

For my Fashion Styling and Photography class, we had to do a blog shoot for one of our assignments. Our theme was picking out popular fashion trends that are being worn and sold in stores right now. For this class, five of us worked in a group and produced photo shoots every so often. I cannot wait to post the formal shoots we did in class! The model for this shoot was Nicole Clancy and the photographer was Jessica Vlachos. 

Neon, Neon, and more Neon!:

For the past few seasons, neon has been extremely prominent in apparel and accessories. For this summer season, it will continue to be popular and used in new and exciting ways. If you love neon, you can easily pair neon colors and accessories together through a print, like in this picture. If you are not comfortable using all neon in your outfit, neon can easily be paired with neutral colors. The statement is just as powerful as all the neon colors put together.

Pastel, Floral, and Mixing Prints:

For this spring and summer season, pastel colors have been featured in almost every aspect of apparel and home decor. Turquoise, light blue, and a mint green are the most popular pastel colors and are featured in almost every retail store. There are several types of floral prints out right now, some being realistic and others more abstract. Mixing and matching prints are also trending, but must be thought out before executed. Looking for a common color or theme within the prints can help pull it together. For this outfit, it is the mint green featured in the bag and the mint green in the shoe.

This summer maxi dresses will be available in a variety of styles, prints, fabrics, and colors. Hi-Low maxi dresses will be the most popular out of all the styles, that will be offered this summer. Statement choker necklaces can easily be paired with most strapless maxi dresses as an added accessory, but be careful to not go overboard. In some cases, less is more. Tribal prints will also be popular this summer for apparel and accessories. If you are looking to try out a more country or western feel, tribal prints may give you the look you are trying to achieve.
