32 Summer Basics That Are Also Low-Key Trendy

Trendy basics for summer



As far as my wardrobe goes, I'm a lot more fun in the summer. In the winter, I wear a lot of neutrals and sweaters, whereas during the summer, I fill my wardrobe with color, pretty prints, and lots of trends. But that's not to say that I don't also shop for basics when it's warm out—I just try to keep them interesting.

For this fun (keyword) shopping roundup, I found 32 pieces that are versatile enough to pass as basics but that are also low-key trendy, including a linen blazer, a pair of balloon jeans, and a bright-colored button-down, among other items.

I don't know about you, but I'm currently feeling an urge to shop that I haven't felt in a while. As making plans has become a thing again, I've started thinking about outfits to wear to places besides the grocery store and for mirror selfies. So with that, scroll to shop the low-key trendy basics that I'd wear out in the world all summer long.
