Summer 2005 Fashion Trends

By Kenia Morales

If you are like me and many women, the warm weather motivates you to do or try new things. It may even inspire you to get creative with your wardrobe. Before hitting the shopping malls, check out this list to find out what's hot for summer 2005.

  • Cropped pants - If you see pants that are too long to classify as shorts and too short to qualify as regular length pants, those are referred as capris or cropped pants. They fit anywhere from just below the knee to inches above the ankle.

  • Natural hair - Good news for ladies with curly or wavy hair. Curls are in; all you have to do is wash your hair, apply some gel or mousse, and blow dry with a diffuser. For defined curls utilize hair rollers.

  • Color crazy - Bright colors are big this summer. Some of the most popular are kiwi, turquoise, coral, fuchsia, mango, yellow, aqua, melon, violet and others. All shades of pink are also hot this summer. And white remains a staple for your summer wardrobe.

  • Knee length skirts - These are available in many different styles from pleated to form fitting.

  • Cuffed pants - Many of the cuffed pants are also cropped.

  • Tunics - They not only give you a different look; they are also cool and comfortable.

  • Prints, embroidery, patterns, and stripes, are all fashionable this summer. Be brave and buy a blouse with bold patterns or floral prints.

  • Fabrics - Silk is big this year. Cottons of course are always popular for summer. Do not be surprised to see clothing enhanced with lots of lace, jewels, beads, and rhinestones.

  • Accessorize - You will find anything from drop earrings to beaded and wooded jewelry. Other popular accessories are brooches, creative belt buckles, pendants, neck silk scarfs, and much more. Just be careful you do not over-accessorize.

  • Shoes - Comfort and color are chic for 2005. I have never seen such a variety of thong sandals. Mules, flip flops, flats, and moccasins are also popular. Wedges are great for the ladies that like to wear higher shoes.
