Although we love the latest summer fashion trends, here are some of the trends that surely wouldn’t work when it’s toasty outside.
8 Latest Summer Fashion Trends That Don’t Actually Work
1. Waist Cinchers/Corsets
Who wants to hold their breath all the time anyway? Corset belts and waist cinchers have been on the fashion radar since last fall but have received lots of love this summer. But it’s quite a task to beat the heat with such tight laces around your abdomen!
2. Sheer Tops/ Skirts/ Dresses
Raising the hotness level with sheer when the temperature has taken a super hike doesn’t really make for the most summer friendly pairings. Sheer skirts and dresses always require to wear something underneath it and then it gets too hot to handle the heat!
3. Bomber Jackets
Ditching those extra layers and keeping it casual and comfy is how we step into summer. But bomber jackets really create a conflict with the top most ingredient of summer. This 90s effortless outwear style is too much trouble to try this summer, at least during the heated daytime.
4. Skinny Booties / Tie Up Boots
These shoes have been raved about a lot in the fall but definitely not a practical trend to carry forward into summer. The pains of wearing skin tight denim and layering up don’t agree with the hot and humid days.
5. Clear Transparent Pumps
A standout piece, clear transparent pumps were seen dominating the streets of New York and Paris Fashion Week and also our Instagram feeds. But I’m sure nobody would dare to wear those in this scorching heat. It would literally feel like a sauna for the feet. Nah! Ain’t nobody wants stinky feet. Keep them to yourself, Kim Kardashian!
6. Leather Outfits
One of the most versatile fall pieces still continues to be on point this summer. But do we really want to wrap leather around ourselves in the heat? Leather mini skirt is, okay but leather tops and dresses? No thanks!
7. Layered Chokers
Chokers are having a moment of popularity and can be styled with anything regardless of the outfit you choose to create. However, it can make you feel suffocated when you layer them in the summers. Plus Shilpa says she even wants to take them off before she reaches the destination of the night!
8. Skintight Bodysuits
Bodysuits in nude, black and white are a wardrobe building essential. You can create many looks with one. But it does carry some drawbacks along with its fame. A tight bodysuit might not be the most enjoyable piece of clothing to beat the heat! Especially the full sleeved ones Forever 21 wants us to but this year!
So, these are the latest summer fashion trends which are not very summer friendly! Really we wonder how they even got popular in the first place. Designers, what are you thinking! Is there any other outfit apart from these which is trendy but hard to wear in the scorching heat? Do let us know by tweeting @shilpa1ahuja.
