Google is making its mark in the fashion world with Think with Google's first ever fashion trends report. As the most popular search engine, it only makes sense that it would be the ideal source for what's hot and what's not in the world of fashion.
Based on 6 billion queries and monthly volume from the beginning of 2012 up until February of this year, here are the the pieces that Google says we should expect will heat up the upcoming Summer season!!
THE TULLE SKIRT
Moving from the west to the east coast, the tulle skirt has steadily gained popularity over that past few years. Black and white versions came out on top, but were closely followed by red, pink and blue tulle. Offering a major does of femininity to your style, try wearing this skirt with a crop-top. If your midsection has you shying away from this option, tuck in a blouse in a floral print or solid. High-heels are ideal, but a pretty flat will work for those already blessed with natural height.
Concentrated mostly in the Southeast, jogger pants are taking street style by storm. Fashionistas are mixing them in a variety of combinations that are fun, stylish and bold. Although it may seem odd to wear a sport-inspired pant with heels, the resulting look is extremely chic!! Invest in a neutral pair to get the most from these simple pants, or opt for a leather pair for something a bit more sexy and rebellious.
It comes as no surprise that midi skirts made the list of up-and-coming trends for spring/summer 2015. A symbol of femininity, this cut gives distinguished flair to any outfit. Growing out of the U.K., there is already an overwhelming list of options to pick from. Floral prints and artistic ones are ideal for the warm-weather season, but pastel shades, reminiscent of waves, are even more stylish. To get your desired look, focus on interesting accessories: shoes and bags in colors that attract attention, plus hats and statement jewelry.
Denim is the fabric choice for 2015, and the proof lies in its search engine popularity. The denim dress, in particular, had year over year growth of 198%! Simplify your look, and opt for a loose-fitting design that subtly highlights your waist. Denim dresses are extremely versatile and can easily be integrated to created various looks from day to night. Complement your dress with unique accessories and you will be overwhelmed with compliments yourself.
Perhaps the ease and versatility of the t-shirt dress is why this item saw a 229% search growth!! This dress truly flatters any silhouette, and can be worn to be sporty-chic or more elegant-glam when paired with high heels and an oversized clutch.
While these items are the top searches according to Google, we always suggest you take this info as inspiration and incorporate it into your own personal style. Pick a midi-skirt over a tulle, or combine these two trends into one. Not feeling the jogger-pants-outside-of-the-gym look?? Opt instead for a casual, striped t-shirt dress with cool sneakers.
