Wherever your summer travels may take you… near or far… we have the scoop on the top summer trends!
Barely-There Sandal Heels
Strappy and minimal, the barely-there shoe trend is a throwback to the late 90s/ early 2000s in the best way. Channel your inner Carrie Bradshaw by pairing this trend with a simple strappy dress, or modernize it for 2019 with some distressed mom jeans and a basic tee. We love this neutral pair from Banana Republic.
The best way to wear a scarf in 2019 is in your hair! A skinny silhouette and a bold print or bright color wrapped around a ponytail can be the finishing touch to amp up a casual, neutral outfit. This one from Francesca’s will add a little pop of fun to your wardrobe this summer!
No cakey powder bronzer from the ‘90s here! The key to the updated bronzed look is to recreate the light tan that you have after spending a full day exploring a new city or lounging on a tropical beach. For an updated approach to bronzer, try Chantecaille’s Radiance Gel Bronzer (available at BlueMercury)which offers a touch of sun and subtle luminosity to any complexion. It’s a cross between a gel and a creamy fluid that is weightless and undetectable, yet smoothing and long-lasting.
The mixed print trend is a great way to introduce a bold print you’ve been wanting to add to your wardrobe. Have you been eyeing the animal print trend, but aren’t ready to take it on full force? Mixing animal prints with florals, like this dress from Soft Surroundings, creates an unexpected and interesting combination that is more subtle and soft than the full-on leopard or zebra look.
A ‘90s throwback that’s flattering, architectural, and so versatile, it works perfectly with everything from pencil skirts to mom jeans. We love the revival of the basic white tank, especially in knit form! Add this staple piece from LOFT to your closet and you’ll be amazed at the amount of outfits you can create.
Woven basket bags, which were once just a beach or market day staple, are a trend that won’t be going out of style any time soon. They have evolved as a wearable accessory appropriate for both a trip to the farmer’s market to a day perusing city streets. This one from J. Jill is an affordable version that will instantly turn your outfit into a quintessential summer look.
The modern neon trend has taken on a much more sophisticated approach than in it’s glory days of the past in the ‘80s and ‘90s. Throw on this neon pink belt on an all-white outfit to take your spring basics to electric new levels.
