We’re diving headfirst into summer and into one of the biggest trends of the season: under-the-sea inspired fashions! There must have been something in the water (ha!) because it seemed like every big designer was diving to the bottom of the ocean for inspiration this season, from the oversized shark tooth pendants at Givenchy to Chanel’s chic seashell clutches to Alexander McQueen’s coral-covered wedges. Make like a mermaid (our fave gal Ariel, perhaps?) in oceanic aquas, shimmering metallic maxis, shell-shaped purses, scale-like sequins and coral cuffs. You’ll definitely make a splash this summer with these chic, sophisticated sea-inspired styles!
Ariel never had to be concerned with her outfit choice before she made the move to dry land. Since us land dwellers do, how about a pretty teal dress or shiny gold number? These gorgeous hues are extremely reminiscent of an underwater haven. This Warehouse Mesh High Low Dress ($90.45 from asos.com) is light and airy with fluid lines to take you to the water, while this turquoise Crochet Bodice Dress (24.80 from forerver21.com) will remind you of the beautiful coral habitats that many fish call home. If these two dresses are too casual for your taste, this gold TFNC Dress In Scalloped Sequin ($76.54 from asos.com) is an elegant evening choice, still hitting the trend with its glistening, seashell-inspired style. Wearing one of these fun frocks, someone might just want to kiss the girl!
