The weather’s warming up, and we’re dreaming of icy lemonade, days at the beach and poolside BBQs. Summer is here at last, and with it comes fun new fashion trends to keep you cool and chic as the mercury rises.
Read on for tips on refreshing your summer wardrobe!
Breezy boho-chic pieces are especially wearable in warm weather, as they tend to have a relaxed fit for bonus airflow. Look for on-trend detailing, like embroidery, tassels, bell sleeves or crochet, or bring out your inner boho goddess with florals, patchwork prints or paisley. Heading to a music festival this summer? Choose an embroidered shift dress in a lightweight, breathable fabric, like linen, cotton or chambray, and add strappy sandals and a straw circle bag to sway to the rhythm on a warm afternoon.
Stylist Tip: Not ready to go full-on flower child? Dip your toe into this trend with boho-flair accessories, like gladiator sandals and natural stone jewelry.
Perennially preppy? You’re in luck; posh is popular this season! Stripes, dots, gingham and plaid should all be on your summer checklist. Loosen up a tailored, preppy-chic look by adding in an unexpected twist or two, like a checked top that ties at the waist or wide-legged linen polka dot pants. For a neighborhood BBQ, pair colored denim with a sun-washed, striped top, and add wedges for a polished look that still feels effortless and summery.
Stylist Tip: Don’t shy away from red, white and blue on Independence Day and beyond! Pair your tried-and-true dark wash denim with a scarlet-and-white printed top to stay sophisticated yet festive watching fireworks.
Want instant vacation vibes without the jet lag? Don lush tropical prints, and accessorize with a spritz of plumeria perfume. Look out for palm leaves, big, bold florals, tie-dye and conversational prints. An ever-flattering wrap dress in a botanical print makes the perfect match for crocheted sandals and delicate jewelry for dinner al fresco on a balmy night.
It’s just not summer without bold colors that brighten your wardrobe and lift your mood. We’re loving juicy shades like tangerine, fruit-punch fuchsia and lemon drop. If you’re more cool-toned, lean on cobalt, grass green and amethyst to energize your wardrobe. Make the colors pop by wearing a blouse in your favorite shade with crisp white denim. You can further ground your look by layering on a dark wash denim jacket; cuff the sleeves for a cool-girl twist.
Rompers and Jumpsuits
Rompers and jumpsuits make a major fashion splash; they’re easy one-and-done looks for those days when it’s too hot to fathom pawing through your closet to find a coordinating outfit. Mix and match the season’s trends by choosing a romper or jumpsuit in a tropical print, a preppy pattern or a fun color, and then just add stacked heel sandals! Bonus: a cute knit romper can double as a cover-up for a pool party.
Choose your favorites from this season’s must-haves to remix your warm-weather essentials, and you’ll be ready for all the fun events that summer throws your way!
