Ultra Violet as the ultimate colour of summer 2018


In case you didn’t know, Ultra Violet is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018, and it’s defined as a ‘dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade’ which ‘communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking’. Needless to say, it was immediately embraced in the fashion industry, and designer houses like Versace, Marni, and Peter Pilotto were more than happy to incorporate it into their latest collections. 
Rocking a head-to-toe purple outfit is never a bad idea, but if that’s too much for you, there’s always an option of matching it with metallic shades like silver, neutrals like beige, or even bold colours like mustard yellow and deep red. You won’t make a mistake whichever you choose!

ES: En caso de que se lo hayan perdido, Ultra Violet es el color del año según Pantone y está definido como 'un púrpura dramático y provocador' que 'comunica originalidad, ingenuidad y pensamiento visionario'. De más está decir que la industria de la moda lo adoptó inmediatamente y firmas como Versace, Marni y Peter Pilotto estuvieron más que felices de incorporarlo en sus colecciones. 
Puedes probar con un head-to-toes outfit o combinarlo con prendas metálicas como el plateado, con neutros como el beige o incluso con colores un poco más llamativos como el rojo y el mostaza ¡Elige uno de estos para un asierto seguro!

The timeless stripes will surely steal the show…


On the other hand, if you prefer timeless prints that will never go out of style, you’ll love to hear that stripes will be a major hit this summer. These could be seen everywhere during the fashion month, and literally, everyone wore stripes – from runway models and fashion designers to spectators and lovers of high street fashion. Of course, everyone knows that vertical stripes are probably the best possible choice as these can visually elongate your body and make you appear slimmer and taller. However, if horizontal ones are still your number one choice, you should definitely rock them fearlessly.

… As well as fabulous boho fringe


Bohemian chic is another trend that will make a huge comeback this year, and we believe that you’ll enjoy it to the max – especially if you’re a fan of fringe. It’s the main feature typical of this style, which is exactly why a lot of prominent designers incorporated it into their collections these days. Fringed maxi dresses will undoubtedly be an absolute must-have this summer, so make sure you get one as soon as possible. The same goes for fringed accessories like handbags and shoulder bags, which can refresh your whole outfit and take it to a whole new level within seconds. If you decide to go for a full-on fringed outfit, just don’t forget to pick pair of gorgeous Avarca sandals that can tone down your overall combo and help you accomplish your ultimate chic look. Once that’s done, you’re ready to go!

ES: El bohemian chic es otra de las tendecias que regresará este año y la cual creemos que disfrutarás al máximo - especialmente si eres fan de los flecos - ya que muchos diseñadores los incorporaron a sus colecciones. Los maxi dresses son, sin dudas, un must-have para este verano al igual que accesorios como bolsos y mochilas que le darán el toque perfecto a tu outfit. Si en cambio decides ir por un look total fringe, puedes combinarlo con un par de sandalias nude para un look ultra chic. 


Polka dots? Why not!


Similarly to timeless stripes, polka dots will never go out of style either – these are extremely popular in the fashion industry these days, and reasons for that are more than good. First of all, polka dots can look really elegant and sophisticated, which is why a lot of ladies pick them for important occasions like their best friends’ weddings or important family gatherings. These are perfect for the business environment as well, and that’s what makes them great for corporate events, too. As for the colours, black and white are definitely one of the most worn combos, but matching any other shades will also work. You can even go for Ultra Violet polka dots and merge these two trends into your fabulous summer look everyone will be envious of!

As you can see, there are a lot of amazing trends fashionistas from all over the globe can’t wait to keep up with this summer. If you’re one of them, too, just be sure to stick to our tips and incorporate Ultra Violet, stripes, fringe, and polka dots into your everyday combos, and you’ll come up with your outfits like a true pro!

ES: Al igual que el estampado a rayas, los lunares tampoco pasarán de moda y estos días, en especial, son extremadamente populares por varias razones. Primero, dependiendo de cómo los lleves pueden hacerte lucir más elegante y sofisticada, lo que los hace perfectos para eventos familiares y de negocios. En cuanto a colores, el blanco y negro es la mejor combinación aunque experimentar con otras combinaciones también funciona. Incluso puedes probar con Ultra Violet y mezlcar tendencias como una verdadera fashionista. 

Así que si eres de las que les gusta estar al tanto de todas las trends no olvides tener en cuenta el color del año, las rayas, los flecos y los lunares en tus próximos outfits.
