In a world today where fashion trends are constantly changing with the seasons, it is important to know what the upcoming trends are. For summer, everyone wants light, airy and, of course, trendy clothes. There are multiple new trends that are out and have been leaked for the summer season of fashion trends. 

Tie-dye prints are the top prints this season. Whether it is a cute light tank top or funky pants, the color options are endless, especially with tie-dye. It is a statement print that you can pair with any color, from standard blue jeans to even white jeans. There are also many accessories that will follow, such as sneakers, scarfs and even bags. It is a bold print and color, but do not be scared to go out of your comfort zone and try something new.

Next on the list is fringe, fringe and lots of fringe. They are the perfect ‘fun’ accent to any pair of clothing. The loose tassels flow in the breezy, warm summer months. It is the perfect dress up or dress down accessory to any piece of clothing, from bikini tops/bottoms to bags.

You can even rock the good old biker shorts, like Kim Kardashian. They are in style and going fast. It is the newest trend and you can dress up and dress down this look with a pair of cute heels or even sneakers. They also come in different textures such as spandex and leather.

This is not a new trend, but it is extremely popular this season. Animal prints are back and better than ever.  Any animal prints work: zebra, cheetah, giraffe, snake, you name the animal and you can most definitely find the perfect pair of clothing to match your style or mood for that day.

Block prints and mixing and matching is up next. This is an extremely popular trend. There are color schemes that work together with different patterns and colors in a clothing piece. This is a trendy look and extremely bohemian. It looks great paired with a pair of boyfriend jeans.

Neon colors are also a big summer trend. Any neon color makes you pop and looks great on everyone. Neon green, neon pink, neon orange ... you name it, you can pair with the colors that you like the best and be bold.

Off-the-shoulder was so last season, so a compromise has been made: half-on, half-off. This is an extremely popular trend with shirts and dresses. It is a classy compromise to the typical off-the-shoulder top. This is a go-to look for dresses and gowns if you are going to an event or perfect for a summer wedding.

Feathers, feathers and more feathers. They are a fun accent to any top or pair of jeans. You can pair it with literally anything you want. It is a simple and elegant look if you wear it correctly. Step out of your comfort zone and keep up with the trends. You never know what you might end up loving.
