2010 Summer Trend Report

Here in Atlanta, it’s already starting to feel like summer—80+ degree temps, sun-soaked days and shorter sleeves and hemlines to match. As cities nationwide gear up for the year’s most carefree, fun-filled season, it’s time to revamp your wardrobe with the hottest looks for the red-hot months ahead. Here’s your pür and simple guide to three top trends you won’t want to miss.

Tribal Prints
This summer, designers from Gucci to Diane von Furstenberg show a taste for the exotic with bold tribal and ethnic print dresses of all shapes and styles. A visual tour de force, this boho-chic look plays well with strappy gladiators and scant accessories that won’t steal its thunder.

Boyfriend Blazers
It’s not often that we’re told to shop a size up, but this summer, that’s exactly what fashionistas are saying, at least when it comes to the boyfriend blazer. Purposefully oversized (implying that it was borrowed from that certain someone), this look works best with rolled up sleeves, shorts and leggings or capris.

The One-Piece
When a look most of us had written off as a fad suddenly resurfaces, we can’t help but take notice. Such is the case of the playsuit/jumpsuit, which enjoyed considerable runway time this season courtesy of Roberto Cavalli, Etro and company. Wear it with a wide, solid color belt for instant bombshell appeal.
