Here Are the Trends I Want to Wear This Summer

Fashion trends for summer



With summer just around the corner, right now, all I can think about are the cool trends on the horizon and the pieces I want to add to my closet. Last summer, I didn’t get around to wearing much more than loungewear sets and house shoes, so I really want to make up for it this time around. Optimism is mounting for a reopening world, so I’m already thinking about possible vacations and everything I want to pack in my suitcase plus some fashion trends for summer I’ll be wearing no matter where I am.

I’m eyeing trends plucked from the S/S 21 runways such as the oversize button-downs that made a major statement at Valentino and The Row. Also topping my list are Instagram-famous trends including matching shorts sets and fun, colorful rings. Of course, it wouldn’t be a summer wardrobe without some of the biggest swimwear trends of the season. Ahead, discover all of the trends I want to wear this summer.

Prediction: Shorts sets are about to be everywhere this summer.

Style these with the matching top, unbuttoned with a bandeau.
