It’s the first official day of summer, and we’re ready to have some fun in the sun. What we don’t have time for? Anything that keeps us pent-up indoors, including online-shopping or hitting the stores to find a new-season wardrobe. Fortunately, starting the summer off in style is easier than you think. Make the most of your time OOO with these 3 essential summer fashion trends you may already have in your closet.
This year’s take on fashion-forward frills is effortlessly feminine without being precious, thanks to the underlying structure of these fluttery pieces. The beauty of the trend is there’s a bound to be a version that’s right for anyone, whether it’s a tee with a ruffled hemline, a tank with flutter sleeves, or a billowy tiered maxi dress.
The embroidered trend goes hand-in-hand with airy fabrics and draped shapes—ideal components for a carefree summer look. Live la vie bohème and accessorize your detailed piece with a woven bag and tassel earrings, or temper its free-spirited vibe with ultra-fresh white distressed denim in a modern silhouette. We’re opting for a cropped straight leg.
We know we’re not reinventing the wheel here, folks, but you can—and should—keep those spring florals in your rotation all summer long. This is especially true since last season brought brighter, bolder blossoms than we’ve seen in previous springs. Their vivid shades pop beautifully against our favorite warm-weather staples: perfectly faded light wash jeans and natural-hued linen shorts.
