As Vibrant as Possible
Summer is the most exciting time for fashion and new colours. We’ve put away our winter clothes and are ready for brighter days and even brighter wardrobes. This summer is all about bold, saturated colours. Lime greens, hot oranges, and radiant yellows abound, as do primary blues and ceruleans. If you like it colourful, summer 2022 was made for you. And, if you’re wondering how these colours can match your compression garments, colour-blocking is still en vogue. You can combine them with compression garments in either muted or bright colors.
Maxi Dresses and Pleated Skirts
Now we know this summer’s colours, but what styles are in? Maxi dresses are a fashion staple every year, and this summer is no different. Their light and airy fabrics are particularly suitable for hot days, and they work perfectly with sandals, espadrilles, or something dressier. This summer, pleated skirts are making a comeback. We’ll see them in both midi and maxi-length. Choose from single-colour and printed styles, and dress them up or down, depending on the occasion.
Wearing your garments on hot summer days can be challenging, but it’s more comfortable when you wear light clothes such as maxi dresses or wide skirts. You can find more information about how to keep cool here.
Don’t Forget Accessories
Curious about what accessories to wear this summer? Accessories can turn a good outfit into a great one, or turn a day outfit into a night one. And, if you’re not feeling your most confident, the right accessories can help lift your mood. So, try one (or all) of these accessory ideas and have fun with fashion.
Hair clips with logo prints are eye-catching and work with every outfit. They‘re uncomplicated, inexpensive, and turn an everyday outfit into something special. Wear them with a low bun or with loose hair. The only rule here is: more is more. Belts in every style such as discrete or wide waist belts are a dominating trend this year. They’re worn and combined in every possible way: over knitted dresses or your favorite blazer - it’s all up to you!
