Fashion People Told Me 23 Pieces They're Buying for Summer

I always like to get insight into what fashion people are buying before they're actually wearing the pieces, so I went straight to the source to find out exactly what insiders are planning to add to their carts right now. Specifically, I had summer in mind and wanted to get a preview of all of the cool finds that are primed for their vacations and new-season wardrobes, so I asked them to spill the details on the finds they're currently eyeing.

Ahead, take a look at the exact items the fashion set has on their radar for the coming season. From the designer heels that are set to reach cult status to the cutout dress primed for wedding season to the swimsuit trend that is about to break, there are so many stunning items to know about. Here, see what made the cut, starting with some picks from my personal summer shopping list.
