International Trends For Warm Weather Ahead


Sayonara, winter! As we look forward to the return of warm weather, here’s a roundup of the some of hottest trends from across the pond – plus a couple of local love-trends, too!


The Button-Down

Undone, tied at the waist, off the shoulder or buttoned up from top to bottom…the button-down shirt is a wardrobe staple for good reason. We’re spotting this versatile piece more and more as springtime nears.

Cowboy Boots

Giddy up! The cowboy boot has announced itself as the perfect spring accessory. Metallic finishes offer a fresh take on the classic boot – bonus points for studs and embroidery details.



The Slip Dress Rules

If you’re so fed up with winter layers that you’re ready to strip off entirely, perhaps give this trend a whirl first. Incorporating underwear as outerwear might just be the sassy savior of the average summer outfit.International trends for warm weather

Flare Suit

The revival of the 70s silhouette has sashayed into menswear, with flouncy flares making an appearance in both day and night looks the world over.



Whether the understated hint or the outfit headliner, the mesh obsesh is strong. If you’ve ever wanted to show off your new lingerie without being totally exposed, this is the trend for you.

Monochromatic White

Head to toe white ensembles can often feel more clinical than cute, but when pulled off successfully, monochromatic white feels like the ultimate warm weather uniform.

Mustang Sunglasses

Behold, the frames that will keep you safe from the sun from spring through to summer. Originally made for women, mustang style frames were wholeheartedly embraced by Kurt Cobain and have stirred up 90s nostalgia ever since.

As things heat up, you don’t have to part with knits entirely. Grandma’s crochet is not to be disregarded this coming summer. Actually, anything Jane Birkin wore extensively is not to be disregarded, period.

Tea Dresses

The demure tea dress might induce eye rolling for the more tomboyish amongst us, but we’re all for countering the traditional femininity of this style with chunky boots and sneakers.

  1. I live in Texas, so have no mystery when it comes to cowboy boots, but I am loving those white mustang glasses. They really remind me of the 60’s.
