I won't bore you with a Miranda Priestly quote, but there's so much more to summer prints than florals. I certainly am a proponent of the classic pattern, but I decided to check in on everyone's favorite brands to see which trends they're advocating for this summer. Not to pat myself on the back, but I think I hit the jackpot.
For starters, gingham is having quite a moment in the spotlight right now. Slap it on a bikini, slip dress, shorts, or headband, and it's bound to sell like crazy. Many of my favorite gingham pieces also tap into other trends like puff sleeves and '90s-esque thin straps, so it's really like killing two birds with one stone. The tie-dye trend also shows no sign of slowing down, perhaps driven in part by its popularity on TikTok.
