Summer style is all about being light, airy, and unburdened by the layers (literal and metaphysical) that typically accompany fall fashion. As lovely as that is, it can still be a challenge to strike the balance of being just the right amount of casual while still remaining stylish.

We touched base with our resident stylist extraordinaire, Banana Republic's Marissa Webb, who shared her top picks to try this summer, no matter what your personal style is. Keep scrolling to see her picks for the five items every stylish girl will be wearing this summer, and to shop them now!

Fringe, fringe, fringe. Pull out your favourite fringe pieces in anything. Accessories, skirts, tops… Fringe is everywhere right now, and you can probably find some great pieces hidden in your mother's, father's, or grandparents' closet.

The gladiator sandal is an ongoing trend that has longevity. The best part is that depending on your style, there's an option for everyone—from classic to full-force fashion-forward.

The maxi skirt is back, and it's great for the weekend or week. Plus, it's easy to style!

We are back to beautiful, flowy wide-leg pants in all different patterns and colours. I also love them in the midi length.

Flare-leg denim is in. Try the high-waisted version to really get into the '70s trend.
