I'm Someone Who Keeps Up With Trends, and I Can't Wait to Try These 6

I pride myself on being my friends' go-to person when they're wondering what's trending right now. I love to keep up with trends on social media, here at Who What Wear, via other fashion media outlets, and, of course, through my fashionable friends and work colleagues. The thing about trends is that they come and go, but if there is ever a time to give trends a shot, summer is it. With this season being full of events, long-awaited vacations, beach weekends, weddings, parties, and everything in between, there are so many fashion opportunities I'm starting to lose count.

While I mentioned that trends can be fleeting, there are certain trends that stand the test of time and resurface every couple of fashion cycles. This summer, I'm noticing six trends that I think are worth trying. Bold and beautiful dresses, all things crochet, woven hats, fun prints, maxi hemlines, and three-piece swimwear looks made the cut when I was narrowing down the trends that I absolutely can't wait to try.

Keep scrolling to see what items I'm eyeing to pull off these trends. 

Bold, Beautiful Dresses

This summer, I am fully embracing saturated colors, especially when it comes to my dresses. I am a big fan of dresses and plan to wear them all season long, and I think a really great dress with bold colors and a strong silhouette will be a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Style yours with flat sandals or heels.

All Things Crochet

I'm declaring summer 2022 the season of crochet. Some may say this trend is outdated, but I love it and plan to wear it everywhere this season. I love a good crochet dress or pair of pants as a cover-up over a swimsuit.

Woven Hats

I'm what you call a hat person. I love a good hat. Baseball caps, trucker hats, wide-brim hats, cowboy hats… I could go on and on. I love the coastal-grandma, Euro-summer vibe, and a chic woven hat really takes any look to the next level.

Three-Piece Swimwear

I'm a strong believer that swim looks should be just as stylish as any other look. This summer, I have some of the most exciting travel plans I've ever had, and I'm stepping it up when it comes to my swim looks. Three-pieces make you look a little more elevated.

Maxi Hemlines

All hail maxi skirts and dresses. I really can't get enough of them. You can wear them on a date, to the park, while traveling, when going to work, literally everywhere and anywhere. Style this classic silhouette with flats, sneakers, or heels.

Fun Prints

I love a solid color just as much as the next person, but there's something about a really fabulous print. Summer is the time to be a little bolder, so I recommend trying something printed for an event or for a destination trip.
