Summer 2017 is right around the corner, and people are preparing to pull out their shorts and sunglasses. With the summer fast approaching, many brand new trends and fads are anticipated to emerge. So, what should we expect?

Last year’s trends give some insight as to what will be “in” this year.

As for clothes, it looks like bright colors and floral patterns are making a comeback. The unsteady weather of the winter and spring leaves the summer open with warmth and summer clothes. Each year, we tend to see a tribute to the 80’s and 90’s. This means outrageous statement pieces and bohemian touches. Don’t be surprised if you see some flashy and vibrant looks every once in awhile.

Last year, the big trend was chokers, but the New York Fashion week this year leads us to see fun sunglasses as an emerging style. No, those big vintage grandpa glasses aren’t prescription, they’re a new style. And don’t be alarmed to see subtle fishnets return.

Additionally, the most unexpected approaching trend is mullets. That’s right, many guys in the high school are beginning to turn back in time and transform themselves to young Patrick Swayzes and John Stamoses. Some are even taking it far enough to bleach the bottoms of their hair. This tribute to the ‘80s could be either a blessing or a curse.

But clothing and style aren’t the only big thing for summer ‘17. The movie theaters are going to be packed, as well.

Movies like Wonder Woman, Cars 3, and Spiderman: Homecoming will most likely be hitting theaters with a bang. Everyone is excited to file into the cool theaters with popcorn rather than feel the thick heat outside. Despicable Me 3, War for the Planet of the Apes, and many more upcoming films are set to open as well.

In the field of technology, the brand new game is cup pong. It is available on Game Pigeon, which also created the popular 8-Ball game, and is being played by many teens. All it takes to play this game is one swipe. And for other apps, it doesn’t look like Snapchat and Instagram will be getting any less popular this summer.

As for food, the big trend to look at during the summer is acai bowls. Acai bowls are smoothies full of the fruit acai in a bowl and covered with desired toppings. Many not only seems to enjoy their taste but also enjoy the way they look. People are already seeing loads of pictures all over social media of these delicious and healthy treats.

These were just a few trends expected to be seen in summer 2017. So, pull out your summer clothes and enjoy the warm weather because before you know it, it’ll be gone.
