Summer wardrobe: biker shorts and aviator’s costume

Femininity is the main trend of the summer months of the season.Even such “courageous” elements of the wardrobe, as overalls, this year have become tender. Not to mention the main element – a dress, to have in your arsenal which is obliged by every fashionista. 


Dresses are definitely favorites of this summer. And any – borrowed, it seems, from all the decades of the last century: both the 80’s are short in sport style, and the 70’s are glam, and 60’s are A-shaped, and 50 are romantic with a thin belt of crepe de chine in black and white peas.

Moreover, designers have encroached on the century before last, the Empire style – an overstated waist and sleeve-buffers. True, unlike that time, the current Empire dresses are so short that even the most modern girls deprived of complexes may not dare to wear them without a bottom.

What could be the bottom to the dress? Of course, the main trend this year – tights!

“Volumetric top – short dresses with high waist in Empire style should be worn either with leggings or with narrow jeans,” confirms Svetlana Putintseva, merchandiser of the Mango store. – The colors of dresses are summer and joyful: banana-yellow, purple, orange, apple, fuchsia. The dresses are made of cotton and linen, it is actually applied to the print fabric. Romanticism is added to their sleeves-lanterns. A-shaped dress will fit any figure – the waist can be emphasized by a girdle, and the shortcomings hide behind a free form. ”

Mango: dresses from 1999 to 5139 rubles.
Monton: dress black in white small peas, 3500 rub.
Meh: a dress with a smell, 3982 rubles. 


Shorts – a convenient opportunity to demonstrate beautiful legs and the results spent in the fitness club time. By the way, with shorts are well combined golfs and all the same leggings. Shorts in the summer are indispensable thing, and this summer also hypermodern. The choice of shape – for every taste and condition of the figure. You can wear a micro-shorts, not unlike panties, you can put on the shorts of the colonizer in the current safari style, for those who are used to being in the forefront of fashion, shorts with ribbons at the bottom, which can be tied to a bow, or even more original variant – cyclist shorts.

“Biker shorts are the most recent novelty of the season,” says Svetlana Zubova, a merchant of the Promod store. – They are short – one third of the hips, the lungs – made of cotton and unusual – from the bottom they are attached, so that they look like flashlights. Due to the fact that they are voluminous and visually increase the hips, such shorts will suit, perhaps, only to graceful girls with even legs. The colors presented in our store are white and lemon. The latter can also be safely called the color of the season – it is now very fashionable. ”

Promod: cyclist shorts up to 1500 rubles.
Motivi: safari shorts, 1820 rubles.


From working clothes, overalls suddenly turned into a trendy outfit. Surprisingly, this trend was not remembered for very long – the peak of its popularity fell on the 70s, on the disco style boom.

Today, overalls are presented for different tastes – fitting for female cats, ethno-vortexes for wearing with panama and sandals, suits of aviators from canvas, playful and tender girl’s coties for girls and transparent guipure for fatal temptresses.

“Even last year, overalls were not among the fashion trends, on the catwalks, they appeared in the shows spring-summer 2007,” says Irina Shiryaeva, director of the Motivi store. – This summer they are presented both in the classical version – with shorts, and in a new reading – with a skirt. And the latter – this is not a sarafan: the back of the overalls remains open, there is only a breastplate and little breasts from above. You can wear them with shirts, with T-shirts, with tops – this thing is universal and everyday. But if you put on a denim overall with shoes with high heels and romantic T-shirts or blouses, you get a very sexy image. ”

Motivi, overalls white cotton: 2790 rubles, denim: 3290 rubles.
Promod, cotton overall, 1699 rub. 


Fashion 80’s, starting his parade procession in the spring, on the home stretch has not yet emerged. The silhouette of the “triangle bottom up” is still relevant, which means a three-dimensional and often multilayered top: bellows are worn on wrestling, short boleros for long topics-tunics.

“In the summer, the sleeves will be very fashionable and the open neckline is open. This applies primarily to the so-called elongated (earlier under this word meant t-shirts opening the stomach) tops that are worn with very wide belts and elk or narrow jeans, – says Marina Romanova, merchandiser of the Mango store. – Another important thing of the season – a short, under the breast bolero, which is worn on these same topics. ”

Mango: tops from 779 rubles, bolero 1199 rubles. 


The more the body is exposed, the more active the girls begin to embroider it with different trinkets. Summer accessories – massive, bright, catchy – emphasize the fragility of the girl’s wrists and the smoothness of the neck. Gypsy motifs are still in fashion – screaming monist, multi-tiered bracelets. Popular style of a baby doll – a bow with butterflies and berries, cute naive earrings (small), toy rings. Ornaments on the hair are the brightest trend of the summer. These are the rims returned from the eighties and bandages that hold the hair on.

“The hit of the summer season – a headband – will complement any outfit and make it more stylish,” Svetlana Vikhoreva, head of Merchandising Department at Marmalato, is sure. – It will complete the chosen image and give you the charm. Knitted, woven, knitted, plain and patterned, decorated with paillettes, thin and wide – the choice today is very large. ”

MARMALATO: bandages for hair, price from 70 rubles.
Colors Beauty: a bandage for hair from 199 rubles. 

In general, modern fashion, which incorporates the elements of the last century, is still much more complicated than the time parodied by it. We are given a wonderful opportunity to experiment, mixing times and styles. The main thing is to know the measure and, as was said at the beginning, to remain feminine.
