From matching sets to dreamy white dresses, below I’m sharing some of my chicest affordable finds that hit on some of summer 2022’s biggest trends. Enjoy!

Halter Necks



Sleek and minimalist—halter-neck silhouettes are trending this summer. Whether you opt for a top or dress, they make for an alluring Insta-worthy look.

Matching Sets



We love a zero-effort outfit that looks instantly put together, and there's nothing as easy (or as cute) as a chic matching set. They'll make getting dressed a breeze this summer.

Modern Pearls



Modern pearls in varying shapes and sizes continue to be a favorite among the fashion set this summer. This season sees modern and fresh takes on the gemstone such as oversize sculptural variations, layered strands, and pearls mixed with other metals and beads.

Relaxed Pants



This summer, opt for loose and relaxed trousers that pair easily with any top in your wardrobe. They exude an effortless elegance and are altogether on-trend.

Strapless Silhouettes

Lean into the Y2K trend, and get yourself a chic strapless top or dress—the perfect stylish option for that sweltering summer heat.

Mini Hemlines



Minis are having a major moment this summer. Pair one with a breezy oversize button-down and flatform sandals for a fashion-forward 'fit.




Summer is the perfect time to add a pop of color to your look. Go for this season's biggest color trend: orange.

Flatform Sandals



There are so many great sandal trends to try this summer, but a pair of cushy flatforms will unquestionably add a trendy touch to your look.

Little White Dresses



It's not summer without a little white dress. Whether you go for a breezy white cotton frock or an easy linen dress, you can never go wrong with the summery style.
