Outfits for summer should be both fun and practical. It could be as simple as pairing the Bermudas of your favorite celeb with a linen shirt, or slipping on a breezy dress. Summer dressing is easy when you mix classic wardrobe staples and new trends. You can still maintain your style by mixing these two styles. If you’re looking for some style inspiration or fashion advice for the summer months, we asked top stylists to share their favorite clothing, shoes, and accessories.

Shea Daspin, a New York-based fashion designer, is all about the embellishments this summer. She said that daytime sparkles are at the top of her list. “Nothing says I’m still living! Daspin said that a daily celebration is to add sparkles wherever you can. “I like Laser Kitten and Doll Chunk Accessories. I also love Tarina Tarantino. I love clothing with rhinestones and sequins. Also, anything lame or hologrammed. Amy Lynn, Collina Stroda, LaQuan Smith, and others have upped the ante.”

The Y2K trend has been resurging in recent years. But according to celebrity style expert Cindy Conroy this summer, platform heels will be the hottest thing. Conroy says that platform heels are a great option for both tall and short girls. They instantly lengthen and tone your legs. “[Summer] has all been about the platform and I am so into it!” “I need it, because I am a small girl.”

Lindsey Dupuis, celebrity stylist and InStyle contributor, said she has been (im-)patiently awaiting the return of the silk scarf since her catholic high school days. She would wrap this accessory around a ponytail. Dupuis admitted that the look allowed her to express herself when dress codes were strict. Personalize them to suit you, whether they are woven into your braid, your ponytail, your purse or around your neck.

Choose Pastels

Liz Teich, also known as the “New York Stylist”, is a stylist who loves crop tops. Teich told InStyle that crop tops can be worn by women of any age and body type if they are done correctly. With a high waisted pant or skirt it gives more shape and the sliver is the perfect amount to show without being too revealing. Low-waisted pants and skirts will also be popular if you are daring. “I’ve been recommending crop tops and matching sets to my clients this season for an elevated look.”

Grace Thomas, founder of personal wardrobe styling company Builtgracefully and expert on the coastal grandmother trend, has it all figured out for summer. Thomas said, “Think Diane Keaton from Something’s Gotta Give.” This style is simple-chic, looks good on everyone and is made up of monochromatic, light neutral tones, linen fabrics and breezy pieces. This style is best embodied by ivory linen trousers with a white T-shirt or tank top, and an oversize white button down.

Try Regencycore

Regencycore, thanks to Bridgerton’s return, is still a popular escapist style that fashionistas such as Thomas love. Thomas said that she was thinking of statement sleeves, dresses featuring feminine details, bows and corset tops. You can rock a dress with pearls, or add just a touch of this trend with a corset and Levi’s cutoff shorts.
