38 Trendy Updates I'm Shopping to Wear With My Basics This Summer

Trendy shopping for summer



If, like me, all you bought over the course of the past two years were basics, and you're ready to spice things up a bit, now is the perfect time to do so. Loungewear purchases are decreasing as people are buying more things to wear out in the world.

Since you probably have enough basics, I put together a handy list of 38 fun, trendy summer items to wear with all of those white T-shirts, jeans, slip skirts, shorts, button-downs, and simple sneakers. These pieces are guaranteed to bring color, personality, and compliments to your summer outfits, and there are options for every budget. Accessories, cool tops, miniskirts, shoes, and more abound, so let's get to it before the exceptionally fun pieces sell out, shall we?

If you see me this summer, I'll probably be wearing this shirt.

This stopped me in my tracks, for obvious reasons.

This is quickly becoming Ganni's It print for S/S 22.

If it's by Completedworks, there's a 100% chance I'm going to want it.

A celeb favorite, updated with a fun splash of purple.

I'd be surprised if this doesn't sell out.

I could plan a vacation around this perfect hat.

I predict these will be quite popular this summer.

And suddenly I need a pink mini skort.

You don't actually need to be sporty to wear these.

You can't go wrong with vegan leather.

These printed pants are so modern and fresh.

I'm daydreaming about fun summer occasions to wear this to.

Yes, I'm biased, but these sandals are beautiful (and available at Nordstrom).

So these are kind of a basic too, but I like them, and they have trendy elements, so in the roundup they go.

People will stop you in the streets to ask where you got these—trust me.

A cutout minidress is very summer 2022.

I'd reach for this again and again when I don't know what to wear.

This is just undeniably pretty.

Not your average beach hat, and that's why I love it.

The stripes (and the color) make this dress so cool.

It's still all about a simple slide sandal. 

Oversize button-ups are perfect for summer 2022.
