With summer approaching quickly, students share what they love about the upcoming fashion trends.

As a world fashion and lifestyle magazine, Vogue is published in 23 countries and keeps fashionistas up-to-date with the hottest trends.

When in doubt this summer, make it pink, smother it with flowers and wear it with flat sandals, according to Vogue.

One may also expect to see a lot of geometric shapes, bright colors and interesting cutouts.

“I’m looking forward to all the cute, slightly heeled sandals and tank tops,” said public relations junior Angela Austin.

Summer style is taking beloved classics and shaking them up for a fresh new look in 2014.

Showing skin is “in” this summer, as can be seen through the growing popularity of cutout dresses and crop tops.

Half-shirts are cute, but only when paired with more modest bottoms such as the trendy high-waisted shorts and skirts.

According to Cosmopolitan magazine, high-waisted shorts are “a classic and go with everything.”

“Crop tops and shorts with fray that are high-waisted are my summer must-haves,” said broadcast journalism senior Lauren Leal.

On the more conservative end of the fashion spectrum, maxi dresses are taking the University by storm because of their effortless appeal and comfort.

When it comes to summer essentials, communications senior Kaci Nicole said maxi dresses rank high on her list.

The seasonal trends offer a little something for everyone, including communications freshman Daisy Hernandez, who said her style is “chill country, a little western with a twist.”

Bags are all the rage this summer, as people begin to recognize that being practical and prepared can be still be super stylish.

“I have to have a cute bag for summer to keep my sunscreen and other products in,” said communications junior Jocelyn Quintanilla.

It seems as though this summer’s fashion trends are all about spicing up the classics. Everyone has a favorite style, but making it your own and setting it apart from the rest of the crowd is “in.”
