It’s officially summer in less than a week (insert sun, smile, and dance emoji here!), and I hasten to say my virtual cart is already expanding by the minute. It’s time to get summer-ready, my friends. Luckily, this season’s trends are nothing short of spectacular—from uplifting bright and bold colors to the coolest seashell jewelry that makes us want to bolt to the beach ASAP. To make your summer shopping that much easier (so you can have more precious time scouring for shells on the beach), I’ve rounded up the best summer trends worth investing in this season.
Nothing exudes summer like saturated bright and bold hues. Wear contrasting colors together for a vibrant head-turning look.
This beachy summer trend has been blowing up our Instagram feed—and we can't get enough. Swap your hoops for asymmetric shell earrings or layer on multiple shell necklaces for a statement look.
The beaded bag trend shows no signs of slowing down. And finally, there are some more affordable options on the market now… just in time for summer. So set aside your heavy leather purse and try these beaded beauties instead.
Clear PVC shoes are a summer must-have. They're versatile (you can wear with everything from denim to dresses because they don't have a color to clash with), they're super stylish, and as an added bonus, they show off your sun-kissed skin beautifully.
This simple embroidery technique has been seen on everything from sundresses to spaghetti-strap tops and swimwear. Comfortable, stretchy, and utterly adorable.
Rainbow Stripes (and Straps)
Swap your nautical stripes for vibrant rainbow hues instead. From dresses to trousers and strappy sandals, they're the easiest way to add some oomph to your outfit on warm summer days.
