Summer 2008 Fashion Trends (USA and Europe)?

Question by Mia: Summer 2008 Fashion Trends (USA and Europe)?
Can somebody give me some fashion trends? I usually dress very conservative (sweaters, button down shirts, loafers) but its summer time and I want to let loose…I just don’t want to be tacky! I’m going to be traveling to Europe and I don’t want to look like a fashion wreck.

Also, it would be nice if you provided a link so I can do some online shopping!

If it helps, I’m a 16 year old girl with very light skin and dark brown hair. (Its hard to find colors that match well.)

PS I will give those ten points =)
