It’s always fun to participate in fashion week and then see how customers respond to the trends set forth by designers. Stores are fully stocked with the runway’s hottest designs but some styles items are destined to make their way into every trendsetter’s closet.
Stripes are so big that some retailers attempted to make a national holiday devoted to horizontal love. The east-west and north-south lines can be found on an assortment of items ranging from pants to dresses to tops and skirts. Nailing this trend is exceedingly simple and doesn’t even require a large budget. Here is a Topshot shirt dress ($80) or this Proenza Schouler knit dress ($2250) that is Cannes ready.
Flouncy sleeves are another one of those styles that is dominating Summer looks. Roksanda is leading the headlines with her signature bell sleeve. A less expensive option is this blush dress from Chelsea28.
This past Winter we saw a parade of velvet shoes. For Summer, plush has morphed into smooth and shiny. We love how satin has been redefined into a casual slide. Here is a Prada version that has a big satin bow and Pedro Garcia‘s version is even more causal tops our list of Summer must-haves. Steve Madden, of course, has a version that can get you the look for (much) less.
Nordstrom is the perfect destination to shop these trends and everything you need for Summer. The store has all the most cutting edge designer pieces and inexpensive options too. The best part is Nordstrom’s first-rate customer service, which includes free shipping both ways. After all, Summer is supposed to be stress free?
