Summer Trends

Here at Urban Chic, we’re SO lucky to have two amazing buyers who, in addition to selecting the best-of-the-best items for our store and making us covet EVERY SINGLE THING, also have the uncanny ability to weed through the trends each season and pick the pieces that not only are so right now but are true classics with staying power. So what’s better than being totally on-trend this summer?  Spending your hard-earned bucks on a great piece that won’t be relegated to the Goodwill pile come Labor Day!

The Trend: High-Waisted Bottoms

Look at you, you smart and classy shopper, hitting this summer’s high-waisted trend on the nose with these versatile Diane von Furstenberg shorts that you’ll reach for again and again.

Diane von Furstenberg, Simca Shorts in Chalk, $175; Joie, Delanna Tank in Coffee, $128; Anzell, Beaded Necklace, $28; Judy, Thick Belt, $15; Alternative Apparel, Stevie Wrap in Black, $40.

The Trend: Groovy ’70s

I’m stoked that my very favorite fashion decade is in the spotlight this season, and what could be more ’70s than a DVF wrap dress? I’m swooning over the maxi length and cool leopard print.

Diane von Furstenberg, Abigail Camo Dress, $595; Urban Expressions, Mirla Bag in Tan, $83; Anzell, Tree Stone Necklace, $16; Judy, Wedges, $45.

The Trend: Bright colors

Is there anything that compliments a perfect summer tan better than bright neon colors?  I wouldn’t know, given that my skin lies somewhere on the color spectrum between “alabaster” and “eggshell,” but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate how awesome this dress would look on you lucky bronzed babes.

Judith March, Aztec Strapless Dress, $113; Kiki Beach; Necklace, $213; Urban Expressions, Rod Clutch, $66.

Another smile-inducing brightly colored dress for summer!

Beth Bowley, Graphic Floral Tunic, $230; Opera, Necklace, $18.

The Trend: Crochet

If you want to rock this trend without looking like a doily, try a crochet-look dress (in black!) from MM Couture.
