From New York to Paris—10 Summer Looks Fashion People Are Wearing Now

We're halfway through summer, and my Insta scrolling is at an all-time high—this is mainly due to the fact that I’m obsessed with seeing summer fashion looks from around the world. Whether it’s Copenhagen, New York City, or Rome, it’s always fun to discover the cool locales in which the fashion crowd is spending their lazy summer days and, most importantly, what they are wearing there.

With plenty of chic outfit inspiration saved on my Insta folders, today I wanted to share some of my favorite summer looks I’ve spotted on the cool crowd this season. From minimalist separates to head-turning hues and trending silhouettes, keep scrolling for plenty of sartorial eye candy, and then shop the looks for yourself.
