The sun is (occasionally) out, garden parties are back in the diary and our big coat collections have been once again relegated to hibernation under the bed. In other words, summer is finally here. Whether you’re planning summer in the city or A Great Escape, now’s the time to implement a little wardrobe refresh. And so to help you, we’ve curated a handy download on the summer fashion trends bound to be big this season.
After a couple of pandemic-hindered years, a sense of freedom is back in the air, and that’s certainly reflected in fashion’s happy new mood. The season’s colour palette is bright, with vibrant, spirit-lifting hues but you can also expect to see (and want to wear) a whole spate of joy-inducing trends, from quirky denim pieces to statement-making dresses, fun, art-inspired sweaters to nostalgic, floaty florals.
Below, we share the six Liberty buying team-approved summer fashion trends to inspire your outfit curation this season.
The Summer Dress
Discover the floaty floral world of summer dresses as they make their return this year, brighter and bolder than ever. If you’re looking for the perfect garden party dress, Rixo's Montenegro Dress, £275, is the dress to look out for, alongside flowy florals from byTiMo's and Stine Goya's summer dress collections.
Pops of Colour
Happy hues dominated the SS22 catwalk. From vibrant fuchsia to cobalt blue, the summer streets will be painted in a spectrum of mood-boosting hues, so dive in at the deep end with colour enthusiasts like La DoubleJ, Dries Van Noten and House of Sunny. For a hot summer day, look to House of Sunny's Good Vibrations Playsuit, £100, to keep you cool while adding a pop of colour to your daytime look.
The Occasion Dress
With wedding and garden party season upon us, an occasion dress is a must-have for the eventful weeks to come. Don’t be afraid to go all out on the evening dresses because glitz and glam are making a stealth return. Don’t know where to look? The Vampire’s Wife and Ganni are great places to start!
Denim with a Twist
Since the birth of youth rebellion, denim has been a recurring favourite in fashion and now the staple fabric is being taken to the next level with new styles, colours and patterns. Look to Aligne's Febe Barrel-Leg Jeans, £75, for your new favourite pair of jeans, or try Loewe’s Paula’s Ibiza for colour-filled denim with bright summery prints.
Bright colours are in but that doesn’t mean you have to avoid all your classic neutrals. Brown is going to be a key colour in the upcoming months and whether it’s a classic Barbour light-weight jacket or Paloma Wool's Renzo Circle Aperture Jumper, £150, the earthier the better when it comes to your summer layers.
The Statement Sweater
Behold the statement sweater - a lightweight knit full of colourful quirky patterns and the perfect layer over your summer dress. Whether you're off to the beach or shopping in the city, a knit is the perfect colourful cover up to bring along with you. Opt for Acne Studios Graphic Detail Jumper, £350, and your style won’t go unnoticed.
