5 Summer Trends You Won't Regret in 10 Years

Trends come and go (and come back again), but some things will truly stand the test of time. Why is it that I look at my outfits from 2010 and cringe, but I see 60-year-old photos of Jackie Kennedy's style and want to dress just like her? Because she stuck to the classics. Experimenting with trends is definitely fun, but certain pieces have much more staying power. 

For all of you classic dressers out there, I've rounded up a handful of my favorite trends that I believe will still look chic in 10 years (and beyond). For instance, monochrome dressing is such an easy way to look put-together without really trying. Just grab a few pieces in the same color, and you're good to go. Scroll down to shop the other classic summer clothing trends I love, along with outfit ideas courtesy of IG's coolest ladies. 

1. Monochrome 

Don't overlook H&M's selection of affordably-priced swimwear. 

A light, breezy skirt is great to have on-hand during sweltering summer months. 

These $30 slide sandals will go with everything in your closet. The best part? Nordstrom reviewers confirm that they're super comfortable. 

To be honest, yellow hasn't always been a color I sought out, but Grece's outfit above has convinced me to start trying it. 

2. Frilly White Blouses

Eyelets will always be chic for summer. 

Sweetheart neckline? Puff sleeves? Check and check. 

This adorable Mango collared top is a cute option if you love the IG-famous Miu Miu version. 

This is bound to be a top seller at Nordstrom thanks to its cute ruffles and on-trend square neckline. 

Hurry: This won't be on sale forever. 

3. Matching Sets

The beauty of buying a matching set is that the pieces can easily be mixed-and-matched with other things in your closet. 

Nothing says summer like an off-the-shoulder blouse. 

4. Oversize T-Shirts

You simply can't beat the price on the H&M tee, so you might as well stock up. 

Madewell has truly perfected the semi-sheer tee. 

5. One-Piece Swimsuits

I love this eye-catching bright blue color. 

When boring striped or polka dots just won't do. 

Let's retire the notion that one-pieces are dowdy, shall we?

I love the '90s-inspired thin straps on this perfect suit.
