The Top Summer Trends

Off-Shoulder Top

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.

V-Neck Shoe

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.

Slip Dress

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.

Multicolored Crochet

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.

Rattan Bag

Woven rattan bags shaped as structured, boxy minis go perfectly in line with summer's vacation vibes over the saddle crossbody.
