It's not just us—the "ugly" trends of summer 2018 are quite possibly the best summer trends yet. In our opinion, there's no better time to experiment with eclectic style choices and go a little outside of your sartorial comfort zone than during summer. From beach days to rooftop hangs, you're about to spend your fair share of time outside over the next few months. So have fun with your summer style and add one (or all) of these "ugly" fashion trends to your warm-weather wardrobe.
Some of these It summer items may shock you. Neon yellow? Yes, we're getting behind it. If you're still not quite convinced, the best way to test out unexpected trends is to pick one and mix it into your classic outfits. But if you're ready to dive head-first into the ugly-pretty look, team items like a Hawaiian-print shirt with a bucket hat for maximum effect. Go on to see and shop every "ugly" summer fashion trend that'll make you forget "pretty" was even a thing.
Whether or not you're ready for it, blindingly bright neon shades are saturating everything from delicate slip skirts to swimwear this summer. Electric yellow is our pick of the "ugly" color trend.
Once a staple of tourists who took their vacationing very seriously, the Hawaiian-print shirt has resurfaced among the fashion crowd. Let this kitschy summer trend saturate your off-duty outfits.
We're calling it: "Baggy" jeans are the summer fashion trend that might once and for all eclipse skinny jeans. The looser, more relaxed fit is actually pretty ideal for summer days we might add.
Forget Teva's and Birkenstocks, as there's a new ugly-chic sandal trend this summer, and it comes down to just one detail: the toe ring. With endless options to choose from, there's a toe-hugging style for everyone this season.
It wouldn't really be summer if an ugly-pretty hat trend wasn't in order. While straw hats will always be a beachside staple, it's the unlikely bucket hat that you'll see everyone wearing this summer.
