You may be looking at your closet and summer pieces of years past, and feeling uninspired. It’s normal to look at your box of summer clothes that have been in the closet for the last year, and not know what can be repurposed and what is no longer on-trend. You may feel out of touch this season, and not even know where to start. Luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of the summer’s hottest on-trend looks, and you might just find that a lot of what you already own is ready to have its moment to shine. As the seasons shift and the temperature picks up, summer is also the perfect time to try new styles and express yourself. So what’s hot this summer? (Well, besides the weather of course!) Here are ten pieces that will help you be your most fashionable self this summer!
1. Flowy Dresses
When the temperature is beastly, a breezy dress is the only cure-all. In this case, the flowier the better. Finding a dress that hardly touches your body, and that can catch a breeze and allow for airflow. The beautiful thing about this style is that it makes a statement all on its own, and makes you look fully put together even though you simply threw on one article of clothing. Add a ponytail, a straw bag, and some strappy sandals and you have the perfect boho look. If you’re going for more casual vibes, a white sneaker is a great way to make a summer maxi dress perfect for every occasion.
2. Two-piece Sets
Matching top and bottom sets are the moments this summer. Much like the maxi dress, it’s a great way of looking put together all while putting very little effort into the outfit. Whether it is a crop top paired with shorts, a mini skirt, a maxi skirt, or pants, finding a two-piece set with a fun print or seasonal pattern makes the ultimate cute look. Whether you are galavanting the dinner cruise during your summer vacation or simply grabbing drinks with the girls on a rooftop bar, you are sure to be a show stopper anywhere you go.
3. High-necklined Tanks
A sleek look for summer is choosing a tight little high-necked tank to tuck into a pair of fun pants. Paired with wide-leg pants, cargo pants, or a trouser, this tucked-in tank look is sure to give you a sleek look especially when paired with gold layered jewelry. Whether it’s a white ribbed cotton-blend tank or a fun colored uniquely cut high-necked tank, this look is sure to be a summer staple. With a slicked-back bun and gold hoops, a simple tank can become a fashion moment.
4. Bright Pieces
This is the summer of color, in fact in almost all cases, the brighter the piece, the better. Summer is a time where expressing yourself through neon and electric colors is something you can absolutely get away with. Whether it’s a chartreuse color, a red-orange, an electric blue, or a highlighter yellow, choosing a piece as simple as a camisole in a fun color makes the perfect summer fashion look. Be bold this summer and choose colors that are fun, tropical, and feminine.
5. Staple Accessories
Investing in quality accessories can totally complete the whole outfit. Find what you use most in your daily life, and elevate the look to something that is fashionable and on-trend. Many people choose to do this with their handbags, but often styles with handbags change far too often. One way fashion influencers are traveling light, yet letting each part of their outfit make a statement is in their wallets. Quality fashionable wallets are a great way to not only add a stylish touch to something you use every day but to also ditch the bag and go with the minimal look on a night out with the girls.
6. All White Outfits
All white just screams summer. Find a pair of linen white pants, and maybe a slouchy white shirt that you can tuck in or cropped blouse, and your summer uniform is complete. This is perfect for the minimalist queen as much as it is for the girl who loves to make a statement. Depending on how you style it, your all-white ensemble can either go the casual route or is perfect for a summer dinner date night.
7. Crochet Tops
The 60s and 70s fashion moments are back, baby! Along with hair scarfs and wide-leg pants, crochet tops are having their moment. Luckily for you, there are lots of versatile options which means you can go as funky or as understated as you please. Some women are choosing fun statement pieces that look like crocheted quilts, and others are simply going more for a simple sweater tank moment. Either way, just know that knits are in.
