The 11 Biggest Trends for Teens this Summer

From prickly motifs to unicorn everything, the biggest fashion trends this summer can’t be missed! If you’re a seasoned fashionista, you probably already have at least half of these top fashion picks in your closet.

1. White Dresses

It must have been all those instagram fashion blogger shots on the beach in crisp white dresses that made us fall in love with this look. Or perhaps it was the graduation looks trends on Pinterest. Either way, we are loving white dresses this summer, whether they are long and flowy or short and skater style. In fact, Forever21 has a section devoted to nothing but you guessed it, White Dresses.

2. Off-the-Shoulder style tops

Everything was cold shoulder last year through the fall, this spring and summer everything is off the shoulder, from swimsuits to dresses, we can’t get enough of that ruffle-y goodness.

8. Cactus motifs

Don’t get me wrong, we still love our flamingos and pineapples, but this year, motifs took on another partner in crime, in the form of a giant desert succulent. Who know prickly could be so cute??

9. Gingham Style

Nothing says summertime like a traditional picnic blanket print, right? Gingham print is showing up in some crazy places outside of parties and BBQs

10. Metallics, Glitter and Highlights.

From rainbow highlighter makeup trends to shoe trends, there is no shortage of glitzy metallics or highlight glow. Pick an accessory, any accessory, and it’s sparkling with the latest metallic color. From chrome nails to silver sneakers, we spotted it and we are LOVING it.  Makeup brand to try: Lime Crime

 

11. 80’s Forever!!

The 90’s trend was Aiiight, but now we turn our attention to the 80’s, which are totally gnarly again thanks to Eleven and her crew in the upside down (aka Stranger Things). From Mom Jeans 80s style sneakers (Vans old skools and Adidas), hi-cut swimsuits to MTV sweatshirts, the 80s are alive. Don’t be surprised if you see crimped hair and scrunchies..oh wait…We’ve already predicted those trends: Scrunchies and Crimped Hair
