Summer’s Must Have’s

The summer might be halfway over (to our dismay) but this season’s trends are steadfast. This summer’s best brought back color into our lives and a nostalgic sense of playfulness that evoked a time of yesteryear. Here are some of the best trends to come out of this season. Are they here to stay?

Undeniably, the most resounding hairstyle of the summer and potentially the year is the ever-so-versatile and practical claw clip look. It’s practical, adorable, easy to do, and perfect for any occasion.

Another recurring hairstyle of the summer and one we will see into fall is the ever-so-romantic tousled-down do’s complemented by mini braids. Think Gabriella Wilde in Endless Love (2014).

Silk scarves have to be one of the more timeless, effortless, and versatile wardrobe staples. This summer, untie the scarf top and wrap it around your head instead. This is the chicest accessory and will complement everything from your bikini and linen button-down to your LBD. Try one like this, by Malaika Apparel:

Canary yellow has fluttered around like a canary this summer, flying itself into every piece it can this season. Swimwear is no exception! This delicious scrunch one-piece is sure to complement every skin tone and silhouette. Wear it to brunch and venture to the pool or shore afterward in this colorful number by Reina Olga.

Your one piece needs a skirt to go with it, of course! Knit patterns are all the rage this summer. Take a page out of the 1970s book and get your hands on this reimagined trend before it’s too late. This Mika skirt from Dodo Bar Or is the perfect poster child.

No, believe it or not, this ring did not come from one of those bubbles out of a Walmart toy vending machine. Instead, it is one of the million rings of the summer. The bigger, brighter, and more edible-looking, the better.

This one from La Manso, a chunky ring trailblazer, is a great place to start – that is if you haven’t already.

Compliment the mule you have in a rocks glass in your hand with mules on your feet. These baby blue ones by Ferragamo are *chef’s kiss*. Slip these on with your chicest wide-leg jeans or a with your best cocktail dress – to stay on theme, of course.

Vogue said it best in the latest August issue, “The New Bags (and boots and belts and baubles) are graphic, oversized, textured, lucky, and perhaps strangest of all: perfectly useful.” As told by these Khaite sandals that check most of the above boxes. Perfectly comfortable, flattering, on the nose, and available in three transitional shades.

Our hearts swell for these woody logo-print canvas slides by Chloe. Picture these at a farmer’s market in upstate in New York, or on the streets of picturesque Positano. Wherever they transport you, these slides are everything.

Soak up the sun and the remaining time to rock the summer’s best! Unless of course, they’re here to stay…
