Parisian designer Jacquemus has his Spring 2018 ready-to-wear collection to thank for his summertime notoriety. High-end and budget-friendly brands alike are sinking their teeth into his runway staples to deliver the pieces his audience loves at prices more people can afford. Here are just a few of the iconic Jacquemus trends that are outshining the rest this summer.

Straw Hats

Don’t leave home without this summer’s shadiest alternative to sunscreen! Debuting Paris Fashion Week for Jacquemus’ Spring ‘18 Ready-to-Wear collection, this beach essential has since found its way into summer suitcases all over the world. The hat’s versatile utility makes it the perfect accomplice for a day in the sand, or as a tasteful accessory for an even tastier night out. Styles, sizes and fabrics vary so make sure to find one—or two— that best suits your occasion.

Bathing Suits as Outerwear

Buying clothes that are multifunctional is the perfect way to combat buyers remorse. Compliment your favourite one-piece suit with a flowy midi skirt to achieve a casually feminine look. A strappy sandal–preferably heeled–and flashy jewellery are the perfect accessories to escalate the vibe from country club to night on the town.

Polka Dots

Jacquemus is bringing palm-sized polka dots back into our wardrobes this season. Bathing suits, wrap dresses and blouses all stand a chance at being influenced by this designer’s vision of a particularly well-rounded summer—but be sure to reach for dotted pieces in a modern silhouette. Items like A-line skirts and sweetheart dresses look especially flattering in this pattern!

Stripes

It’s rare that a designer championed for the rebirth of polka dots is also responsible for our stripy obsession. A paradoxical pattern wizard, Jacquemus featured draping fabrics of thin stripes in his Spring ‘18 Ready-to-Wear collection. When styling with stripes this summer, consider “less is more”. Thinner stripes elude to a slimmer overall waistline, while fashioning multiple striped items at once (i.e., top, bottom, and accessories) may lead the eye astray.
