Let’s Get Stylish with Fashion Trends for Spring and Summer

Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

In my opinion part of making a “comeback” is making sure that I am not in the typical “mom” uniform of yoga pants everyday. To keep informed, I enjoy checking out fashion magazines as well as some great style and fashion bloggers around the web. Here are some of my favorite fashion trends for spring and summer.

Bermuda Shorts

Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

I LOVE that this trend is back. Who needs short-shorts? Maybe those women on the Nair commercials and girls ages 21 and younger, but in my opinion we “women of a certain age” should NOT wear short shorts. I am loving bright colors and patterns for my bermuda shorts too.

Black and White

Spring and Summer Fashion Trends

This is one of my favorite trends, that never really goes out of style. I love that back and white is so easy to dress up or down and always looks classic.

Bold Stripes

This trend does not necessarily flatter every body type, but you can also add bold stripes with accessories like bags, shoes, scarves, etc.

Lace and Crochet

I love this trend. Another one that you can dress up or down, but it tends to add a bit of class to any outfit.

Color Trends

According to, these are the color trends for 2013. As a woman who formerly wore WAY too much black, I am branching out and wearing more color. Give these a try too. What other trends do you love this year? Share them in a comment.

    Love the black and white striped top. Bermuda shorts are very flattering on most body types, which is nice.

  7. I love the lace looks. HOpe you will link this up tomorrow for our Verizon Style Hop!

  8. Ashley S says:

    I am so glad that bermuda shorts are still in style. My legs are not my best asset and bermuda shorts still look flattering on me!

  9. Dede says:

    I am at that point in life where I’m not always sure what I should be wearing at my age. Love that walking shorts are back. No one needs to see my thighs.

  10. Krissy H says:

    I LOVE that ‘long’ shorts and ‘black and white’ are back! (Personally I think they both should be a classic fashion statement ALWAYS and forever)..Though I must be shopping at the wrong places, because all I see are ‘short shorts’ for sale everywhere!

  11. I love Bermuda Shorts! I do NOT have the legs for short shorts. So I love the style of Bermuda Shorts! I can totally rock those! And I am absolutely in love with lace and crochet!

  12. i dont think i own any bermuda shorts, but i am willing to give it a try!

  13. I am glad to see the short shorts might be disappearing. Even if you are 21 let’s leave a few things to the imagination. I need to work on adding more color into my wardrobe, black and navy blue are staples for me.

  14. I love black and white styles too. And I agree shorty shorts are awful!

  15. Jenna Wood says:

    I was against lace at first, but I’m really coming to love subtle peeks of lace; it really adds a feminine touch.

  16. I love the bold stripes! That dress looks great, but I need to lose the belly to look good in that one. πŸ™‚ I also like Bermuda Shorts…and agree with you on the shorty shorts on older women.

  17. Jadey Sam says:

    I am a late bloomer! I also wore a lot of black a few years back but when I was turned 30 I decided it’s time to be more adventurous and wear more colors so that’s what I am trying to do now :)!

    • Jenn says:

      I am an even later bloomer just adding more color in my 40’s. Good for you to get started earlier.

  18. I love those striped bermuda shorts you featured in the bold stripes section, and totally dig the B&W trend right now. I too need to work on more color this summer. I tend to stick with black tops and denim shorts. Yawn! This summer, I vow to do more colors and patterns!
