It has been a tumultuous year and a half for many. (By many I mean everyone). It seemed as though the world was devoid of color. Now that life is accelerating toward normalcy, the celebration of fashion is at an all-time high. This summer, fashion is back and better than ever. Here are our picks for what you’ll see trending on the streets this season.
Another silhouette we are seeing everywhere this summer season? Halterneck tanks. The classic lines accentuate any figure.
When life gives you lemons, wear them! This linen-rayon button-down is the perfect piece to throw over your bikini or tuck into a skirt. Furthermore, fresh fruit prints have been seen plastered on every clothing piece possible this summer, so join in on the fun.
Three criteria for trendy summer pants: wide leg, printed, and filled with color. These Zara pants will have heads turning wherever you wear them. (Note the accompanying halterneck top!)
Hang up your denim hot pants to dry this summer, and swap them out for the much more practical, (more formal?) oversized alternative. These flattering mom shorts are the way to go on the beach, out to brunch, or at work, dress code permitting.
Extra! Extra! Fashion is back! Maxi skirts are back! Marry your maxi with a great white sneak or cowgirl boot for a modern take. This gingham number from Free People gets it right.
Cowgirl boots are the seasonally confused underdog of the summer. Pair a cherry red or white pair with anything in your summer wardrobe. These summer staples look best with your best frilly dress. Think Shirley Temple meets Dolly Parton.
Orange really is the new black, according to these lace-up sandals. These ballerina-esque kicks are sure to wow -and are more versatile than you might think.
We have Yeezy to thank for this next footwear sensation; the ugly-cute foam slide. These Vogue-approved slippers are sure to be seen everywhere this summer.
We promised this summer would be a colorful one! Anything chunky, plastic-y, and fun will pass this trend test. Susan Alexandra is one accessory designer who has been a trailblazer for this trend. Most importantly, all of the brand’s pieces are made by hand in NYC.
Fashion is back, and so are trucker hats. Take a page out of Paris Hilton’s book and don a trucker hat this summer. Throw one of these bad boys over your beach hair and become an instant Coolgirl. Surely you’ll want to pick one from the trucker hat pioneer, Von Dutch.
Dig up those old canvas bags you’d get with your subscriptions to your favorite publications! Not only are these bags practical, they’re on fire this summer, and store so much.
Fashion is back, so happy summer and happy styling!
