Ever notice how you often rock a trend before your friends, and by the time they do you’ve moved on? That’s because you’re a bona fide trendsetter, and as such it’s your sartorial responsibility to stay two well-heeled steps ahead of pack. As we move into summer there are a few on-the-rise trends you should embrace so we’ve compiled a simple cheat sheet. Ahead, find out what to store and the must-have pieces you should replace them with, stat.
The Top Summer Trends
Nineties-inspired crop tops are great staples to pair with high-waisted bottoms, but we suggest upgrading to the elevated and equally sexy off-the-shoulder top, which will continue its reign well into summer.
It seems like everyone and their mother has a lace-up ghillie flat (Thanks, Aquazzura). Give the ubiquitous trend a break and try this runway-inspired V-neck pointed shoe, which also helps elongate your legs.
Embroidered Denim Jacket
We can wax poetic about the bomber jacket but balmy days ahead are making us want to don a denim topper endlessly. Opt for one with embroidery or patches for a touch of interest and charm.
Sporty, ribbed dresses served as a go-to basic for spring layers, but a slinky slip dress is a sexier, chicer version of a versatile frock.
Exude boho style with vibrant crochet pieces in favor of basic stripes.
Folded Cropped Jeans
Kick-flare jeans dominated skinnies last season. To refresh the cropped jean trend choose a folded-leg pair.
Woven rattan bags shaped as structured, boxy minis go perfectly in line with summer's vacation vibes over the saddle crossbody.
