The 2019 Fashion-Girl Summer Wardrobe

What, exactly, are the must-buy pieces you’ll spot in fashion girls’ summer wardrobes this season? As an editor with a constant eye on the latest outfits among the fashion set and new arrivals at retailers, I have some predictions. While summer hasn’t arrived yet, there are already some key trends that have emerged on the fashion scene that are set to be big for the season ahead.

For starters, there is a shoe trend that is about to take over. We’re seeing a version of the popular strappy heels in a flat-sandal silhouette that is more practical for vacation wardrobes than its taller counterparts. Other essential accessories like large sunglasses and silk headbands are replacing last year’s trends like tiny sunglasses and bucket hats. Go on for the full list of this summer’s must-own trends, as well as my edit of pieces to add to your wardrobe now.

Fringe Skirts

Pretty fringed things have already taken Instagram by storm and will continue to be a huge trend for the summer ahead.

Barely There Flats

Strappy heels have been everywhere this spring. For summer, the style set will be embracing flat-sandal versions.


Scarves fall into the rising grandma trends we're seeing everywhere on the fashion scene.

Pearl Anklets

Baroque pearls are an established trend at this point, but now we're seeing an updated take with anklets.

Large Sunglasses

Last year was all about tiny sunglasses. This summer, though, fashion girls will be wearing big acetate versions instead.

Denim Bermuda Shorts

We always have our eye on the latest denim trends. Right now that means Bermuda shorts.

Suit Sets

Suiting is the trend that has taken over the fashion world, and for summer, insiders will be wearing skirt and short suit versions.
