Despite the fact I wear white year-round (the Labor Day rule is null), summer is the season where white, specifically denim, really shines. Nothing says summer more than a pair of perfectly fitting, relaxed white denim paired with striped tanks, femme blouses, or even your swimsuit top.

Bright colors have always had a place in summer fashion, but this summer I’m gravitating towards sunny yellow for everything from full-on-outfits to delicate accessories. Plus, this color gets better as we get tanner. With so many different shades of yellow, you’re sure to find something you love. Click here, here, and here for my favorite yellow pieces for the season.
This is probably the best material anyone can wear in the summer. It’s lightweight, it breathes well, it cuts back on sweating, and it pretty much looks good no matter the silhouette. Most brands buy heavily into this fabric for the summer, so there’s plenty of brands to shop and styles to discover made in this summer-ready material.

Swimwear as Tops
As mentioned with white denim, a big trend this summer is having your swimwear work overtime as a top to wear with jeans, shorts, skirts, and more. What could be more summer than that? Not ready to wear a bikini top masquerading as a shirt? This also goes for one-piece swimwear so you can participate in the trend and feel comfortable and covered.

What goes around comes around, and Bermuda shorts are back in the fashion spotlight. This long-short trend is overtaking cut-off denim shorts as the bottoms trend for the season. It’s easy to wear these shorts casually or dress them up. They can be worn with sneakers, sandals, and heels, making this the most versatile trend for summer. Not sure how to rock the Bermuda short?

The great thing about all of these trends is whether you’re staying around the house this summer or taking small adventures out, each of these trends can cater to your activities.
