IADT's Summer Fashion Trends: The Heat Is On!

May 27, 2011 IADT San Antonio, IADT General, Fashion Design 0 Comments

The mercury is rising and the air is getting heavy – sure signs that summer is on the doorstep! But even in the steamy days of summer, you can be comfortable but stay in step with the latest trends.

To beat the heat and still look great, consider the following pairings:

•A long maxi sundress with oversized Jackie O sunglasses and sandals;
•White crops or linen shorts paired with a brightly colored tank top and great accessories;
•A sundress – always a South Texas favorite – for the day, and a cool jumpsuit paired with heels for the evenings.

Avoid wearing anything that may be too tight or constricting as well as heavy fabrics, such as polyester, wool or nylon – stick with natural fabrics that “breathe.”

Summing it up for summer: the perfect outfit for South Texas is a brightly colored lightweight romper, decked out with chunky wooden accessories and wedge heels and topped off with an oversized brimmed hat.
