While we're still on the brink of spring, I'm mentally already fast-forwarding to summer. Don't get me wrong—I love to layer up in coats and boots but I pretty much live for warm-weather style, so summer is where my wardrobe really shines. After all, I grew up in Arizona and live in L.A., so feel like I've become somewhat of an expert when it comes to dressing for summer. So which trends are on my radar and which pieces do I think will be huge in a few months?
Looking to the runways and fashion insiders, it's clear that there are a number of trends that will be big this summer. From tropical prints and bold colors to chain heels and exposed bras (and plenty more), there are some major summer trends destined for all of our wardrobes once the warm weather hits. Ahead, see the eight summer trends I'm predicting are about to blow up and shop my edit.
With bold jungle prints spotted on the S/S 20 runways including Versace, the tropical prints are poised to be everywhere this summer. We'll be seeing it as a strong trend in swimwear as well as vacation clothing.
So many styling options.
The perfect one-piece.
Nouveau Aviator Sunglasses
Sure, aviator sunglasses have been around forever, but this summer, we'll be seeing updated takes on the classic. Bottega Veneta's sleek hexagonal pair have already been popular with celebs like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, but we're also seeing other brands coming out with their own take on the reinvented aviator.
We can thank Bottega Veneta for putting this trend on the map.
This shape feels very forward.
We're already seeing bra tops emerge as a huge trend for 2020, but it will only be picking up steam as we get closer to summer. My favorite way to style them? Underneath a blazer, as seen here from Staud.
Pull this off for the evening with a satin set like this.
A must-buy, in my opinion.
Heels With Chains
Chain-embellished heels are the shoe trend that will dominate 2020. Last summer, everyone was pairing anklets with heels so think of this as a new way breathing life into that trend.
Wow, these are truly a work of art.
For a night out.
Such a great price point.
Get ready for big punches of color with lots of hues that scream fun. I'm especially drawn to bold pinks as well as sunny shades like yellow and orange.
Suiting is one of the biggest trends of 2020, period, so you better believe that there will be a way everyone will wear suits this summer. Look no further than the short suit. This summer, style yours with a bra top and chain heels.
Get ready to say goodbye to your ordinary tees and hello to padded-shoulder versions. The rising micro-trend is already huge on the street style scene but will be everywhere by summer.
This cult top keeps selling out.
A cool take on the big-bag trend.
This visor is epic.
I love the leather details.
