Summer Trends You Have to Try!

As the trend wheel turns some hot 90's trends are coming back in to style and other trends that are sticking around for another summer! Chicago fashionista Sara from Styled Like Sara showcases her summer style and some fun summer trends that are on the comeback!  

If you were born in the early 90's then you remember the choker phase. The most popular chokers were the plastic, lace-looking, chokers you could get at Limited Too in a pack of 4. You were really cutting edge if you wore more then one choker and the bracelets to match. Well chokers have made a serious comeback, but this time thicker chokers, and layered chokers are all the rage! Chicago fashionista and blogger Sara mentions that, "... chokers can add so much detail, edge and appeal to a simple outfit, whether you are going out or hanging out for the day." No doubt chokers are here to stay for the summer and possibly fall!

As athleisure is coming to the forefront of fashion some older activewear is coming back and making the list of top summer trends. Bomber jackets are on the rise. Starting as jackets for the men and women of the US Air Force, then working its way into the music industry fashion, and now to mainstream fashion the bomber jacket adds depth and edge to any outfit. This trend is not only topping the list of women's fashion trends but mens as well! Sara points out that bomber jackets are perfect for spring and summer because they are light and can be dressed up or down for whatever the occasion!
