#1 trend: Two-pieces

Two-pieces already celebrated a big comeback last summer and they’re making just as much of a fashion statement this year too, which to be honest isn’t really surprising when you think how incredibly versatile this trend is. 

But two-pieces don’t just have to consist of a pair of trousers and a matching jacket/blazer. They come in a wide variety of options such as a combination of skirt and top, shorts and jacket or as a set comprising a dress and blazer. You only need to make sure that both garments are made of the same fabric and if possible, also have the same colour or pattern. That’s it!

I discovered both of my two-piece looks at Samsøe & Samsøe at BIKINI BERLIN. Both outfits are made up of a pair of trousers with the matching jacket/blazer. To give the looks a sporty, casual touch, I combine them with sleek white sneakers. This makes them ideal for everyday wear and means they don’t look in the least bit snobbish or overdressed, which is very important to me. But if you want a more dressed-up look, if you’re going to a restaurant or a club for example, you can simply swap the comfy sneakers for high heels or sandals and there you have it: the perfect evening outfit. You can’t get much simpler than that!

And the best thing is that your outfit is put together within seconds because you don’t have to think about possible styling combinations. Just add a shirt, a blouse or a top and you’re ready to go. Apart from your shoes, of course!

 
 

#2 trend: Eye-popping colours & floral patterns

It’s not only blooming everywhere outside, florals in all possible variations are also appearing on dresses, skirts, trousers and blouses. Floral prints and patterns are very much on trend again this season. And the best thing about them? They’re really easy to combine and look good with (almost) everything, even in combination with other patterns such as stripes. By the way: they really come into their own with contrasting materials like rough and ready denim or – currently also very fashionable – vinyl.

As far as the colour palette is concerned, it’s going to be bright this summer! Vibrant colours are setting the tone and playing an important role, especially yellow! Yellow not only elevates our mood, but also attracts admiring glances. And of course there are also a number of different styling variations here: if you prefer a more understated look, you can add an individual highlight by choosing one yellow item like a blouse or bag. Or as a contrast, you can also go for the all-over look. But whatever you decide on, the trend colour is a great fashion statement and a must-have for every wardrobe this summer.

I opted for a bright yellow skirt with a delicate floral pattern and a biker-look leather jacket. For me, the perfect contrast between cute and cool. You can find both at Samsøe & Samsøe.

 
 

#3 trend: Raffia bags

One accessory trend is a real must-have this spring/summer: bags made of natural materials like raffia or bamboo in all conceivable shapes and sizes. And they’re not just perfect for a beach holiday, but also for the city as they add a summery, laid-back vibe to every outfit.

There are so many different straw baskets and raffia bags to choose from: whether small or large, as shoulder bags or also as baskets, in minimal designs or brightly coloured with embroidery, pompoms or leather details. But you can also find chic models with a chain strap. My model is a clutch adorned with buttons and tassels made of elegant raffia straw by Scotch & Soda. I love it, don’t you?!
