In our opinion, summertime is the best time of year to experiment with different trends since you’re not bogged down with heavy layers.  Here’s a list of our top Summer Trends to try this season:

1. The Maxi Skirt

You can’t go wrong with a simple tank and maxi skirt, paired with a tote, simple jewelry, or a floppy hat.  For a more polished summer look, choose a chiffon or pleated maxi instead of basic jersey.  Maxis are a great summer trend because they’re super comfortable but also stylish.  Check out how Rachel Bilson nails this look and styles her floor-length maxi with a simple white tank for an effortless look.

2. A Simple Shift

simple shift dress is a great summertime work option.  You can pair it with a statement necklace for a polished look, dress it up with heels and dangle earrings, or dress it down with sandals and a wristlet.  Shift dresses are a great transitional wardrobe staple because you can also wear them with tights in the winter.

 3. Nautical Stripes


Nautical Stripes Street Style


Nautical stripes were all the rage this year and we understand why.   They’re a classic staple that always looks fresh and modern.  Experiment with different combinations like an oversized white tee and striped shorts.  Conversely, wear a striped tee or tank with simple shorts or denim.

4. A Flowy Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses will take you seamlessly from poolside to an evening out on the town.  They’re even more versatile than maxi skirts because you don’t need to think about a top to pair them with.  Maxi dresses make enough of a statement on their own, so stick with minimal jewelry like a stack of bangles, a single statement necklace, or layered long necklaces.

5. The Stylish Cover-Up


 The Stylish Swim Cover-Up

Every woman needs a stylish cover up to throw on poolside or at the beach.  We like both printed and solid versions, but just make sure it’s made from a lightweight fabric for maximum comfort.  For bold printed swimsuits, wear a simple, sheer cover-up and tote your essentials in a straw or raffia beach bag.


6. The Spaghetti Strap Tank

Spaghetti strap tops are the ultimate way to show off tan shoulders in the summer!  Pair yours with a pair of white skinnies for an effortless summer look.

7. A Flared Mini Skirt

8. The Chambray Shirt

Chambray shirts are an all-season staple.  Pair a classic chambray shirt with printed shorts for a fun summertime twist.  Alternatively, color block light chambray with dark or black denim and heels for a more dressed up look.

9. Anchor Print

10. Peekaboo Bandeau

 Peekaboo Bandeau Sheer Blouse

We’re big fans of pairing a sheer blouse with a lacey bandeau or delicate bralette peeking out from underneath, and there’s no better time than summer to experiment with this trend.  As usual, if you’re trying a riskier look on top, keep it simple on the bottom with skinny jeans and sandals.
