3 Summer Fashion Must-Haves!

Written by Mike Dolzer. Published: July 29 2016


With an abundance of warm weather and casual attitudes, Summer is the perfect time to make your fashion fun. Here at Young Hollywood, we’ve made a list of the top three things we are loving to wear for the sweetest and sunniest season of the year!


1. Glow Threads T-Shirts

If you really want to make an entrance, Glow Threads T-Shirts are the way to go. The fabric of these innovative tops is illustrated by lights and lasers, adding a flashy and fun vibe to your nighttime wardrobe. Each shirt comes with a glow pen and keychain light, so you’re ready to become the most popular human canvas at the club. Like Snapchat on a shirt, each drawing done by a glow pen only lasts for 60 seconds, making it so you can refresh your image all night long. Many of the shirts are also decked out with cool interactive designs, like mazes or tic-tac-toe boards, to make your shirt more than just an article of clothing but a unique activity for you to connect with others. The company’s most popular shirt (and our personal favorite) has the words “Panda Panda Panda” beneath a cartoon panda wearing a hat, a reference to Desiigner’s hit single. CEO Sancho Van Ryan told us, “The first time people see these shirts is really really special to us.” In addition to the signature shirts, this hot company also offers other fun accessories, such as an LED mohawk and slotted shades! They even have an exciting top secret project in the works that involves hats, shoes, and the ability to program them in real-time with an app! Glow Threads truly makes you the light of the party!


2. Printed Shorts

Spice up the summer by sporting printed shorts! Essentially a mural on your pants, these shorts add a zest to whatever you’re wearing. While many designs feature a floral look, there are a variety of styles you can rock, including animal prints, stripes, and intricate geometric patterns. Getting a pleated pair or one with small ruffles is just another way to make your wardrobe more noticeable. If you’re not convinced yet, we dare you to look up pineapple printed shorts. We know you can’t resist their perfect balance of fashion and fruit. Printed shorts are whimsical while still being attractive and trendy -- it’s no wonder they’re getting so much love this summer!


3. White Kicks

“Damn Daniel, back at it again with the white Vans!” The line that launched two teens into internet stardom is also influencing one of this Summer’s most-talked-about trends. White kicks are a fresh way to revamp your shoe game without being gaudy. While the bright sneakers are eye-catching, they aren’t eye-nauseating, and we love the crisp look they give to any outfit.


Whether it’s glowing shirts or a bold white shoe, this Summer is more about standing out than fitting in. We can’t wait to try all of these strong looks ourselves!
