I know what’s happening, you’re sitting there, having just read the title of this post and your thinking to yourself “What the hell, isn’t it coming into winter in Australia? What are you doing?”. Well, I’m going on holiday to Europe for all of June and July (yes, I’ll be away for two months! Don’t ask me how were paying for it.). We will be going to Paris, Greece, Turkey and the UK. We will be sailing, flying, driving and doing loads of swimming, partying and catching up with friends and family. I am just so incredibly excited. So, this is why I’m writing about the summer trends. I’ve been looking at inspiration for when we are away. I’m not usually one to follow trends as I just do me, and if I like it, I wear it. In saying this though, summer is really not my thing. I’m a coat and boots and jumpers type of girl. I tend to struggle with style during the summer, but I really want to get some awesome blog photos, push my boundaries and enjoy fashion whilst we’re away.
So this is my interpretation of what’s on trend this European summer!
Bold Mix Prints

Mixing bold detailed prints is a thing right now. Go bold, go bright and clash to your hearts content. Throw out the rulebook where it tells you how to wear your prints and go for it. I recommend accessorising simply and have fun with it!

Does denim ever go out of style? And everybody needs a good pair of denim shorts in their life but I think this years interpretation of it is about throwing it back to the oldschool, think early 80’s all the way to the 2000’s. Think patches, double denim, mom styles, Britney and Justin.
I love denim, and ever since I discovered TopShop denim, I’m even into jeans again. Mom jeans can be worn on cooler days but a good pair of shorts and a denim shirt work wonders too.

Stripes are back! But no longer are we talking only sailor stripes, think pinstripes, mixed stripes and tailored stripes. I will also add in that the Bardot (or off the shoulder) style is back in a big way too. Stripes are a good way to mix prints or go a super colourful print like the first picture from the Salvatore Ferragamo runway.
I’m loving the stripe. I want that playsuit above. Stripes are also great for investment pieces as they are always stylish and always look sophisticated.
