Fruit Print
Along with the retro shades came fruit print clothing. Without a doubt, the Summer of 2018 was a tribute to vintage looks. The most popular fruit print was the cherry print, which alone was one of summer of 2018’s hottest trends.  A variety of stores carried different tops and dresses adorned with this classic print along with banana, orange and lemon printed clothing just waiting to be styled.

How to Style White Pants

by

With summer quickly approaching, it’s finally time to break out the white pants! How to style white pants is a skill that comes in handy during warm weather. While the infamous ban on white after Labor Day is not followed as strictly by fashionistas anymore, white pants are still most commonly worn during the summertime as a basic staple. Do you have a cute top or accessory in mind, but you’re unsure about how to style it with white? The opportunities are endless, and we’ve got you covered with several outfit ideas. Check out our favorites right here!

 

Prints

Choosing how to style white pants during the summer is a task made easy with bold tops. Printed tops like this Lilly Pulitzer one make any pair of white pants stand out. Since white matches almost everything, it’s an easy combination and makes the colors in the piece pop more than would a pair of blue jeans.

Neon

Neon colors will pop against the white jeans, as well! The contrast between this pink Brighton The Day tank and the white jeans places more focus on the top. Blue jeans or other colored pants may overshadow the color, but white pants will leave you looking classy and fun.

Denim

Mixing and matching different types of denim is another fun way to style white pants. While blue denim on denim is a popular look, pairing a classic blue denim jacket with white pants will give equal attention to both pieces.

Navy

For a more classy, professional look during the summer, pair a navy top with white jeans. Wearing navy to professional events can be a struggle, since it doesn’t match with black, but navy paired with white is the perfect alternative.

Patterns

Patterns, especially gingham and stripes, look perfect with white jeans. The white in the striped or gingham top is enhanced by the white pants, so they are an ideal match. A gingham navy blue top, like the one pictured, can get overlooked when styled with blue jeans, but white jeans show off the details in the top and in any accessories included.

Classic Look

With so many cute looks in mind, choosing just ways to style gingham is difficult!  Preppy looks, one of the most classic, often include gingham patterns.

Independent Spirit Awards

For this event, the dresses ranged in all different colors and styles. Patterns and textures were popular elements of most of the stars’ dresses, especially Amanda Seyfried’s and Saoirse Ronan’s. Seyfried, wearing a graceful white dress with lace detailing, opted for a simple ponytail and nude heels to complete the look.There are several cutouts on the front of the dress and a high-low element on the sides but the dress is every bit as elegant as Seyfried. While Ronan’s dress is much brighter, the floral pattern and beaded neckline adds character. The statement earrings she paired it match perfectly as do her gold heels.

The Oscars

Haute Couture gowns thrived at the Oscars this year. From lace to floral print designs, some of the most beautiful gowns were worn to this event on March 4. Allison Williams and Mira Sorvino both wore nude dresses, which was a popular color at this awards show. While the colors of their dresses are fair, the detailing is exquisite. Williams’ dress is complete with a beaded bodice, and Sorvino’s dress is covered in fabric flowers for extra elegance. Simple jewelry and accessories were worn by both to avoid taking away from the gowns.
