This summer’s trends range from bold stripes to flares and from statement sleeves to kimono tops – here’s a summary of the styles that are currently making their mark in fashion history.

RufflesΒ 

Ruffles are in! They can be a great addition to blouses, skirts and dresses. Because they are a standout element to an outfit, you won’t even need to think about putting on accessories like statement necklaces or belts. Switch your basics with blouses, tees or skirts that have ruffled sleeves or frills – no one would doubt that they are downright chic.
