Sorry, But It's Urgent: These 5 Trends Must Get Into My Closet

After two years of barely doing any shopping, I may or may not be in the middle of a revenge-buying period. With warm weather on the horizon, I have been keeping my eye on the summer trends to see what grabs my attention most. The truth is I have become somewhat akin to a puppy that runs to and loves just about everything. It doesn’t help that as a fashion editor, I am exposed to the gamut of what’s available at the moment—there are so many options.

If I had to narrow it down, I would focus most on certain updated basics like denim Bermuda shorts and then throw in some whimsical trends like the latest party heels (think transparent styles with embellishments) and bold, printed short-sleeve button-down shirts. (These give me elevated-Hawaiian-shirt vibes.) I’m also very much feeling the Coastal Grandma look, so I can’t forget some chic summer hats. Keep scrolling to shop the five trends I want in my closet stat.
