Alexander Wang once said, ”Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.” This is certainly the case for summer, when every day feels like Saturday — and our style reflects it. Think: bold prints, bright colours and bare skin. Much like the sun, summer fashion is where your personality (and your shoes) should truly shine.

From festival fashion to beach days to holidays around the globe, it’s all about being outside and thinking outside the box. Carefree and carpe diem are the new black. Designers and brands are tuned into this wavelength as well; for summer 2017 fashion trends, they have cranked up the creativity so you can not only be yourself, but be your best self.

Here are our top funkiest, freakiest, most fabulous fashions trends for summer 2017.

The Man Romper.

Gentlemen, can you imagine what it would look like if your shirt and shorts shacked up? Enter: the man romper. This junior jumpsuit, popularized by the Kickstarter for male onesie brand RompHim, has been covered by every outlet from Esquire to The Washington Post. In fact, celebrities are now starting beef over who wore the look first.

Next to Nothing.

When it comes to fabric this summer, less is more. From Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid at the Met Gala, to these girls going clubbing in nothing but black tape, it seems modesty is no longer in vogue — literally! Vogue put together this handy guide on six ways to rock mesh for summer 2017. If mesh is too much, you can also try Topshop’s transparent jeans for size.

Unicorn Frappuccino Fashion.

Not long ago, to compare something to a unicorn was to say it was rare and special. No longer. The unicorn trend has gone from magical to mainstream in a legendary way. From Starbucks’ Frappuccino to food to fashion, the rainbow aesthetic has come to dominate the cultural zeitgeist.

 

Vox points the finger at Millennial nostalgia and the children’s television series My Little Pony. No matter its origin, designers from Alexander McQueen to Vivienne Westwood to Christian Louboutin have jumped on the unicorn bandwagon. Not sure where to start? Go full unicorn with our Drummond Fairy Dust platform sneakers.

Statement Pieces.

Summer fashion is known for being loud. For 2017, the message your clothing carries should speak volumes. In an era of political turmoil and divisiveness, celebrities, designers and fashionistas alike have taken their outrage to their outfits. Whether it’s a graphic tee like Christian Dior’s “We Should All Be Feminists” shirt to Emma Watson’s GLAAD pin at the MTV Movie and TV Awards to mental health on Teen Vogue’s Instagram, sometimes it’s the little details that make the big points.

 

Matchy matchy.

Whether it’s with your partner or your partner-in-crime, coordinated has never been cooler. And that doesn’t mean you have to be identical — make it look easy and effortless. Check out Miley Cyrus and her sister wearing these matching overalls or this spread from Teen Vogue showing some models seriously winning at twinning.
