The Top Trending Looks for This Summer

As we head out of winter and towards the brighter, summer days on the horizon, it brings with it the perfect opportunity to reassess the current trends that are soaring in popularity right now and how you can incorporate them into your day-to-day style and aesthetic. This article will highlight some of the most popular trends that are tipped to sweep the nation this summer and offer tips on how you can nail these looks with ease.

Matcha nails

Whether you prefer to do your nails in the comfort of your own home or are partial to a trip to the nail salon to get them done professionally, treating yourself to a new set of nails is one of the easiest ways to latch onto up-and-coming trends in the world of fashion. One of the hottest trends rising in popularity right now is matcha nails.

The matcha manicure sees nails painted in beautifully soft shades of green that perfectly match a comforting cup of matcha tea. Pair your nails with a bright, floral patterned summer dress in bright oranges and fuchsias to achieve the ultimate summer aesthetic.

Short shorts

It wouldn’t be a summer wardrobe without a pair of shorts, and right now, short shorts are back in fashion! You won’t want to wear these until the warmer weather has well and truly arrived here in the UK, but once it does, when it comes to shorts – the shorter the better! Runways during the most recent fashion weeks across the globe were awash with models sporting skimpy shorts, paired with tailored coats, oversized blazers, and knee-high boots.

Highlighted skin 

When it comes to make-up this summer, less is more. Dewy skin and sun-kissed cheeks are at the forefront of everyone’s mind in the world of fashion. You can perfectly nail this look by opting to use a new highlighter to brighten up your complexion by applying it to the tip of your nose, under your eyes and across your cheekbones. Highlighter can draw focus towards your most beautiful features and make them pop when you are in front of a camera.

Honey blonde hair

Thanks to megastars such as Rhianna, honey blonde hair is back on the rise and it’s one of the most popular colours with hair stylists across the country right now. It’s ideally suited for the summer months to brighten up your look and bring that sun-kissed aesthetic to your everyday style. This radiant hair colour will work best on light brown to dark blonde natural hair and will have you feeling refreshed and ready for those long summer evenings in the sun.

The Scandinavian hairline

For women with natural blonde hair, the Scandinavian hairline – a face-framing trend – is the perfect cut to breathe new life into your hairstyle. This involves bleaching your scalp white blonde with the aim for the hairline to be a brighter shade of blonde than the rest of the head. Many celebrities such as Matilda Djerf are opting for this gorgeous hairstyle this summer, so it’s not hard to see why this trend is rising in popularity right now.
