Three Trends To Try Now Before They Expire
Summer is full of fun-loving, trend-setting looks that, come September, will have decidedly jumped the shark. It seems every season there is a smattering of trends that, while decidedly of-the-moment in June, rapidly decline into late-summer don’ts. So while the getting’s good, it’s best to try our top-three hot-now, but-soon-to-be-dismissed styles — before it’s simply to late.
People magazine’s top look to try now is the floral crown that wove it’s way into the locks of countless music-fest ladies and accompanied one Ms. Ashley Green down the red carpet. A youthful and springy accessory to be sure… but dangerously teetering towards wood-nymph.
Palettes come and palettes go, but some are more apt to stand the test of time. One hue that we suspect won’t make it’s way onto the multi-seasonal show-stopping list is this summer’s big-winner: mint green. Reminiscent of mint chocolates and mint ice-cream, it’s not the most flattering hue on the bottom and can go geriatric-chic in .05. Wear it now while you can.
Sunglasses are always a big winner in the warmer weather, keeping those delicate peepers safe while still making a statement — and the biggest statement to be made in 2013 is a pair with multicolored reflective lenses. We don’t see this take on tie-dye lasting into Fall when the look goes from fun and flirty to sophisticated and urban. So make that rainbow arrayed statement now.
