Now that the warm weather has arrived, it is time to pack away those turtlenecks and say hello to short floaty skirts. That’s right, summer is officially here, and indie chic clothing is the top trend for this summer in women’s clothing. For those of you who don’t know, indie chic is a fashion that draws on bohemian and hippie influences and has been popular since 2004. This 60’s-inspired style revolves around a more earthy and natural look and has been made famous by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. The upcoming 2013 summer fashion trends include high-waisted shorts, crop tops, statement necklaces, floral prints, etc.
Below are five chic indie trends for the summer 2013 season:
1.) Mismatched Prints
Also known as power clashing consists of a mixture of colorful, tie-dye, or floral patterns. You can quickly wear bright patterned tops with either high-waisted shorts or floaty skirts. The trick to mastering the mismatched look is to make sure the sizes of the patterns are different so that the clashing looks intentional.
2.) Ankle Strap Wedge Heels
While last summer season was all about the gladiator sandal, you should try bright, colorful wedge heels this season. To stay on the chic indie trend, go with a fuchsia print wedge, which will go great with a pair of cut-off shorts and an off-the-shoulder top.
3.) Floppy Hats
The floppy hat may look like an Easter Bonnet, but nowadays, indie online stores offer a wide selection of floppy hats. That will have you looking more runway ready. This new trend will also help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
, the chic indie trend is all about accessorizing your everyday outfit. You can mix-and-match with colorful anklets, bracelets, and necklaces. You can try wearing dangly earrings which you can pair with a colorful headband. The key to success is to make sure your accessories are a noticeable part of your wardrobe.
The key to wearing make-up if you are trying to master the chic indie trend is to look very natural, which is perfect for the warm summer months ahead. You can try a few make-up trends are a skin primer, tinted moisturizer, and a creamy blush.
These are just a few indie fashion trends to try this summer. What is great about this fashion trend is that you can bring out your own individuality.
