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
Gabriella Off Shoulder Gingham Bustier 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.
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.
Sadie Embroidered Denim Jacket
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.
Deep-V Silk 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.
Suede Patch Vest
Exude boho style with vibrant crochet pieces in favor of basic stripes.
Boyfit Selvedge Jeans
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.
