Since each season lasts for months on end, having more than one "wave" of trends is a given. For example, summer hasn't even officially started yet, but we've all been wearing summer trends like Nike socks, anklets, and sweatshorts for weeks now. If you're bored with your wardrobe for the upcoming season before it even starts, you're not alone, and we're here with some ideas for what trends to buy next.
The early summer trends were mostly geared toward comfortable stay-at-home wardrobes, and while that's still the case for many of the second-wave trends, you'll also find ones that are perfect for venturing out in the world a little more, as things start to gradually open back up.
Below, you'll find sandals, dresses, accessories, and loungewear that'll freshen up your summer wardrobe in an instant. See how some of Instagram's chicest ladies are wearing the trends and shop them for yourself below.
Chunky Gold Rings
While anklets aren't going anywhere, if you want an even fresher jewelry trend to try, pile on the chunky gold rings. Whatever outfit you're wearing will instantly look a whole lot chicer.
Juicy orange hues are a great way to embrace summer, even if you're just staying indoors. If you love pink but want something fresher, this is the color for you this season.
If you're tired of the oversize-tee trend but miss the comfort of it, next up is camp shirts. Whether tucked or untucked, buttoned or unbuttoned over a tank or swimsuit, you'll look like the cool girl you are in a camp shirt.
These stretchy cotton boxers are the loungewear trend that's quickly emerging on Instagram. Perfect for days when you're staying inside and it's just too hot for pants.
While hardly a new trend, Birkenstocks are everywhere right now (especially this year, since comfort is key). If you want to invest in a new pair, you won't regret it—you'll wear them constantly.
We've lost track of just how many pretty backless dresses are on the market right now, so good luck choosing just one. Our favorite styles are nice and loose.
