8 Must Have Summer Trends

What I’m Snatching Up to Complete My Summer Wardrobe

I’m typically more of a fall fashion kind of girl; I love my sweaters and boots. But this year, I can’t stop shopping all of the spring and summer goodies! Maybe it’s because it has been the looooooongest winter of all time. But my money is on the fact that the summer trends are just so damn good this year! Step aside florals…

Here Are My 8 Must Have Summer Trends

8 Must Have Summer Trends, gingham trend, gingham for grown-ups

All Things Gingham

I’ve always felt that gingham was a bit too youthful of a print, but this season’s gingham tops, shoes, dresses and jumpsuits prove that gingham has grown up. I’m loving these PJsthis topthese slides and this swim suit.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, target has the best shoes, spring shoe trends

All the Target Shoes…

I seriously have a problem. I think I have purchased most of the shoes that I’ve linked here. Target is seriously killing it with their shoe game. This may be my favorite of the 8 must have summer trends. And not only are they cute, but the quality and comfort can be counted on. My flip flops will be left on the shelf this summer. Standouts that I own are these wedgesthese espadrilles and these chic sandals.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, must have spring bags and designer dupes

Affordable Summer Bags

Last year the Cult Gaia bamboo bag paved the way for some serious dupes as well as tons of other on-trend bags at pretty unbelievable prices! I chatted in this post about how I love the ability of taking advantage of a trend, especially a seasonal trend, without breaking the bank. And Amazon is hands-down my go-to for trendy and fun summer bags.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, blue and white stripes, camo print, print mixing

Blue + White Stripes and Camo

Blue and white stripes is hardly a new and novel trend, but I love pairing stripes with other prints like camo in my spring and summer wardrobe. Add fresh white denim and you have an easy outfit that can take you from day to night. You’ve seen this camo field jacket before and it really is such a fun layering piece with jeans, shorts and dresses. And I’m dying over this skirt and this top.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, tie front tops

Tie Front Tops

I picked up a more structured tie front top last spring and it’s a trend that carried over into fall and is back this summer! I love the extra detail it gives a basic tee. Loving the ruffle sleeves on this affordable option.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, Free People

Anything From Free People

Maybe this isn’t a trend, Free People is one of my favorite brands, particularly in the summer months. Most of their pieces have a boho feel that’s perfect for the season. Their pieces are super versatile as well, meaning that you can wear them to the beach and out to dinner which is a win in my book.

8 Must Have Summer Trends, exposed button fly jeans

Exposed Button Fly

Another favorite of these 8 must have summer trends is the exposed button fly. This makes my 90’s self so happy! It’s detail that’s popping up on everything from skinny jeans to shorts and denim skirts. It’s another trend that is super cute paired with a tie front top! I just ordered these shorts and have and love these jeans.

So there you have it, my top 8 must have summer trends to shop now…
