I Think These 30 Pieces Will Make You Look Like a Fashion Person

summer fashion shopping guide



Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

If pressed to think of a more perfect season than summer for shopping, I, well, could not. I'll tell you why: Summer is all about the cheerful, fun, and sometimes OTT. It's about letting go, going bold with color, showing more skin, and just having a grand old time, which is exactly what I had in mind when putting together this summer shopping guide for your pleasure. Think neon hues that'll score you many compliments and tie-dye bucket hats that feel extra relevant—I've even thrown in some retro prints for you, just because. If these products don't make your week, hopefully, they at least put a smile on your face and help you curate the ultimate warm-weather wardrobe. I promise you'll be looking like a fashion person in no time!
