5 Fashion Trends For Summer 2019 That Have Me Raving

Summer has arrived


It's been harder and harder to go to class these days, and it's all thanks to the beautiful summer-like weather that's blessing the entire month of April. With good weather comes new summer fashion trends that will soon be all over Instagram. Old favorites and new silhouettes are taking the world by storm; here are just a few that I've been loving.

1. Earthy Reds and Beautiful Browns


Terra-cotta, brick red, and other beautiful warm tones dominated the runway this season. All the big brands, like Balenciaga, Valentino and Versace featured garments in the family of these tones. What were once a strictly autumn and winter shades, these bold colors are here to make an impact this season. It adds a nostalgic and antique angle to the usual summery dresses and accessories.

2. Bicycle Shorts


Oh, bicycle shorts. Once something worn strictly by athletes, they are now a hot item for brands from Forever21 to Chanel. Kim Kardashian, among other huge celebs, has been photographed wearing these kinds of bottoms. They're form-fitting, often shiny, and best paired with big sweatshirts and chunky shoes. Would you wear these out in public?

3. Combat Ready Wear


This kind of style made its debut with high-waisted cargo pants and more famously, Off-White's long belt. For summer, this utility-inspired trend walked down the runway along with cropped tan tanks and strapped backpacks. It's a look Kim Possible would be proud of, and it seems that a lot of people across the globe are already adding pieces of this trend to their wardrobe.

4. Chunky Shoes


We're all familiar with Balenciaga's Triple S sneakers; they made headlines for months because of their nod to the 'dad shoe' and for their hefty price tag. But this summer, more affordable alternatives are all the rage. Brands like Fila and Reebok have amazingly chunky shoes for less than $70 a pair. They give a particular silhouette that nods back to the 90s. It's a part of my wardrobe people love to hate, but they go perfect with shorts and oversized tops.

5. Tie-Dye


The 60s are back with bright and colorful tie-dye dresses, tops and pants. The wide-legged pant has been back in style for a while and paired with a good tie-dyed crop top, you'll be at the edge of fashion this season. The best part about this trend is you can create your own pieces at home; with a little bit of water, dye from Joann Fabrics and about 24 hours, you'll have the cutest in-trend tops for summer.

10 Outfits Every College Girl Wears To Class At Least Once

You can thank me later.

It's happened on more than one occasion.

The occasion of being called out more than once for dressing down for class and by "down" I mean some of the haters we hate to love claiming that they can't see the shorts we're wearing under the oversized band tee on our way to class.

Contrary to popular belief, yes I'm not oblivious to how my choice of outfits for class tends to shift on the more comfortable side and yes, I am aware that it looks like I'm not wearing pants, I like it that way.

Every girl in college wears what they feel is comfortable enough to wear in a 2-hour lecture and these are my ideas of comfort.

1. The infamous oversized tee with Nike shorts.

I'll say it right now, I have a variety of assorted Soffee and Nike shorts that I pair with almost every oversized tee I own and it's my go-to for those 8 AM math lectures.

2. Oversized tee with leggings and riding boots.

Once the first red, yellow and orange leaf is found on campus grounds, you know you're about to see a swarm of college girls, like me, sporting riding boots in every shade of brown. Jeans optional.

3. Oversized tee with leggings and rain boots.

Once the first rainfall hits campus, you better believe you'll see this same 'fit paired with Hunter boots in almost every color.

4. The "I'm going to the gym right after class, I SWEAR" look.

Whether or not I have plans to go to the gym after class or not, I'm probably in my gym gear 4 times of the week and I'm not ashamed by it.

5. Jeans.

I've always had a hate/hate relationship with wearing jeans when I absolutely do not have to and here's why: they make my derriere completely disappear. When (and if) you catch me wearing jeans in lecture hall it's probably because someone paid me a large sum of money to do so.

6. Your boyfriend's flannel paired with... you guessed it, your favorite pair of leggings.

This is probably one of the many flannels I've stolen from my boyfriend and certainly not the last one. Paired with another favorite standard black leggings, you can't go wrong with this outfit to snooze in.

7. The baseball hat and quarter zip ensemble.

One of my all times favorites, you can't go wrong with a zipper up 3x too big for your body and a baseball hat you honestly forgot where you got it from. We also can't forget our infamous black leggings.

8. Your "walk of shame" outfit.

Now, this doesn't mean you roll up to Intro to Psychology wearing what you wore to the lacrosse mixer the night before, no. This is more of the outfit you so quickly had to throw on in a span of two minutes because you left so and so's apartment downtown an hour too late.

9. A v-neck.

Another one of my favorites.

10. Dresses (or anything even relatively formal).

Disclaimer: I personally would never come to class wearing this but gigantic kudos to cute a** girls that do decide to wear this because you look good.
