Summer Trends We’re Psyched About

Dressing for cooler weather can be exciting, but are we alone in feeling like we lose a little creative liberty? After all this dressing-for-practicality business, we’re ready to have some fun! Here are a few summer trends we’re beyond excited about.

Quiet Luxury

Quiet luxury means you’re wearing pieces that look expensive but don’t actually come with a high price tag. The silhouettes are timeless, the color palettes are neutral, and the accessories are refined. Think: crisp white shirts, button-front midi skirts, trousers with clean lines, carefully crafted leather bags, minimal metal earrings, and simple band rings.

Girlcore fashion is here, and it is unapologetically feminine. It’s time to reclaim lace, the color pink, skirts, frills, and lots of bows. Because, contrary to popular belief, you can wear a pink frilly dress and bows in your hair and still be a boss.

We Like Big Bags

If you’re always on the go, you’ll love the mega-bag trend. After all, the only way to keep it all together – shoes, extra clothes, technology, and your current read – is to throw it all in an oversized bag! This summer is about finding a bag big enough to fit it all.

Totally ’80s

By now, we’re familiar with the fact that all fashion trends everything comes back around. This summer, we’re throwin’ it back to the drama of the 1980s. Think: cowboy boots, lots of leather punk accessories, shiny draped disco tops, high-waisted denim, and a whole lot of patterns being worn at once.

Drop-Waist Dresses

Dare we say, this may be paying homage to a resurgence of Y2K low-rise everything. While we’ll continue to see low-rise jeans, shorts, and capris (seriously, what year is it?), drop-waist dresses will be huge this summer, and we aren’t mad about it. Creating the illusion of a long torso and accentuated hourglass figure is a fun way to play with your silhouette.

A Silky Trench

Obsessed is an understatement. We did not anticipate luxurious outerwear on our 2024 Bingo card, yet here we are. Not only is this the perfect layer for a cool summer evening breeze, but it’s unbelievably simple to style. Consider this your sign to add this functional and elegant piece to your cart.

It’s So Preppy in Here

Blazers and V-neck sweaters over collared shirts, pastels, loafers, and pearls – it’s all happening. If you’ve got a little prep in your step this summer, you’ll be thriving. You can’t go wrong with khakis, crisp button-downs, and polo tees.

Shorty Shorts

Mini-shorts have been all over the runway, and we have a feeling they’ll be all over the streets this summer. Dress them up or down – the important part is that you dress them at all! There’s not much to work with, but that is part of the fun!

Our Pick: Nasty Gal Premium Tailored Bead Embellished Booty Shorts ($94, shop here)
