1. Summer Stripes


Rosie Assoulin, SS 2017

Summer stripes are one of the easiest trends to style. They can function as a graphic element that works similarly to color-blocking. Don't forget the additional height you get when you know how to style it! Don't be afraid to mix your stripes, too.


It's a versatile print that can be worn a number of ways. Check out Coco's monocromatic take on the stripes and Jae Nelle's festive interpretation!

2. Athleisure

Versace, SS 2017

Don't fret wearing sporty pieces in the middle of summer! Get creative with your lightweight bomber jackets and snapback caps. As Vince says, you might have some athleisure gems stowed away in your gym bag! Just style them with the right pieces and you're totally on the right track.


Bomber jackets in lighweight colors are perfect for jersey skirts just like what Vince did. Or maybe take Kath's technique and use a similarly-colored jacket paired with a separate to make it look like a sporty suit.

3. Florals

Gucci, SS 2017

Abandon your belief that flowers are too romantic! While it's true that florals for spring aren't groundbreaking, Isha and Vince note that the print is refreshing when done in big and bold patterns or has a tropical vibe.


Don't believe us? Check out how stylists Jigs and Keith mixed bold floral prints to create a new look altogether!

4. Shirting

Victoria Beckham, SS 2017

Deconstructed shirts are still on trend this summer! You just have to be more creative in layering them. And as Isha and Vince said, a versatile white button-down is a must-have in every wardrobe. Coincidentally, you can achieve the trend with just that!



Take cues from Hillary and Krista's creative interpretations of the said trend! They played with prints and varied hem lengths.

5. Denim

Contrary to popular belief, denim is definitely hot for summer. Undone and frayed hems are all the rage which you can totally DIY!


Don't be scared to wear denim on denim, as we learned from Francis' and Abraham's creations!

But apart from these summer trends, we learned a whole lot more from Isha and Vince. According to them, if you're interested in making it big in the fashion industry as a fashion stylist, heed this piece of advice: experiment, get creative, and find your personal style so you can stand out!
