Style Your Summer Outfit With See-Through Flats

One of the coolest ways to make your outfit look on-trend this summer is with a pair ballet flats or Mary-Janes in see-through fabrics such as mesh, net, or cut-out fabrics. The see-through style may be divisive but there's no denying their peak trendiness this season, thanks to brands such as Alaïa, Khaite, and The Row whose shoes are already going viral.

Drop It Low

Whether you love it or hate it, there is no denying low-rise silhouettes are back—as spotted on practically every fashion person this summer. This season, wear the trend in relaxed silhouettes and wider-leg styles in easy-going fabrics such as linen for a look that screams summer 2023 (as opposed to Christina Aguilera circa 2001).

Wide stretchy headbands are the unexpectedly cool must-have accessory trend of the season—and the secret to every cool-girl summer outfit. When paired with big and bold '80s-inspired earrings (another huge 2023 accessory trend)—the combo feels fresh and exciting.

Lean Into Classic Black and White



Fashion people have been leaning into understated, and elegant white and black outfits this summer that exude luxe Sofia-Richie-in-the-South-of-France-vibes. Whether you go for a head-to-toe white look broken up with black accessories, or opt for a chic contrast trim top or dress, the color combo looks seriously chic and trend-forward.

It's all about the mermaidcore aesthetic this season, and if you're looking for an easy way to add the trend to your outfit then go for sea-inspired jewelry or accessories.



Pretty 3D florals are having a major moment this year. The popular runway trend continues to be a hit among the fashion set on everything from chokers to belts and dresses. The charming appliqué will continue its dominance into fall so there's no doubt now is a great time to add one to your outfit for a trend-forward look.
