If you’re about to buy your summer wardrobe, you’ll need to know what the hottest trends are this season. Read on to discover the top trends for summer 2012 and how to wear them.

Lace is truly ace this summer, and is all over dresses, belts and bags. If you want to tap into the trend, the key is not to overdo it, as top to toe lace can end up looking more cheap than chic. Choose a dress with lace detailing around the neckline or hemline. A lace belt with a floral maxi dress and sparkly accessories ties in with the current boho trend, or you could try wearing a lace cuff instead of a bangle for a subtle nod.

The sailor girl look is ideal because there are so many different clothes you can choose from – all of which look timelessly elegant. For daytime, choose fitted navy shorts with espadrilles or modest wedges, and wear with a crisp white tee and red accessories. Alternatively, you could opt for a knee length sundress with nautical stripes and straw hat. In the evening, choose palazzo pants in cream or navy, and wear with a silky cream cami and chunky gold Chanel-style jewellery, finished off with delicate strappy sandals.

Sportswear has been consistently reinvented over the last few decades, and in the last couple of years, the sports luxe style has given classic clothes a sporty twist. Tie in with this summer’s 1920’s theme by wearing a drop waist tennis-style dress with pleated skirt in a pastel shade. For a super sexy look, you could try a clubbing dress with contrasting cut out weaved panels that will flash just enough flesh.

Acid brights are all over the high street, so incorporate a glimpse of electric pink or neon orange with a racerback vest under a loose, off-the-shoulder sweatshirt. Team with baggy pants or short shorts to finish the look.

If you love to keep things feminine, layering is ideal for you. Choose a Firetrap maxi dress and add a couple of belts, a crocheted waistcoat and plenty of beads and bangles. Summer waistcoats are all over the high street and work with shorts, skirts or jeans. They’re great for giving a waist to any A-line dresses that you may own as well. To tie in with the boho look, combine layers with wooden accessories and leather sandals.
