6 Must-Try Summer Fashion Trends to Refresh Your Wardrobe

Summer fashion is a rotation of staples. Bikinis, denim cutoffs and tank tops are all obvious examples. The summer style is a blank slate of outfits. A white tank top with blue denim shorts or a crisp, white shirt dress, are classic and reliable essentials. While these essentials are perfect for hot summer days at the beach or in the city, this is also the time to try out the latest trends.

Summer fashion trends mix everything from nostalgia to preppy, offering us a variety of choices for the season. Consider, for instance, the comeback of the prep look seen on the runways at Miu Miu, Dries Van Noten and Tory Burch, where polo shirts were the main focus, just like in the late 2000s. Or the return of the capri pant, a polarizing nostalgic trend featured on the Tory Burch, and Coperni runways.

Take a look at this season’s runway trends before you start shopping for your summer wardrobe. You can then pull off these looks in the real world as the warmer months begin.

The classic white summer dress is enjoying a moment. This season, the white dress has become more structured and crisp with tailored and shirting details. It was seen on the runways for brands such as Christopher Esber and Acne Studios. A white dress is just a blank canvas. For styling, choose accessories in red or black that will add some edge to a breezy outfit.

The 2020s are not slowing down on the nostalgia trend. Capris, the awkwardly-lengthed bottoms that were popular in the late 2000s but which many people loved and hated, are the latest fashion trend to dominate. This season, designers like Ferragamo, Tory Burch and others have embraced the trend with stylish and elevated capris. They can be worn anywhere from the office to the park and even casually. To wear capris throughout the summer with ease, keep styling simple. After all, they are quite a bit to take in. Pair them with slingback mid heel pumps, a T-shirt, or a fitted blazer.

The polo shirt, a signature of sportswear and a must-have for this summer, is a product from brands such as Miu Miu or Loewe. The versatility of the classic staple is reflected in the oversized striped versions, embellished with flowers, ombre details and logos. Styles are also as diverse: Designers paired their iterations with wide-leg pants, barely-there hot trousers and bubble-hem skits.

Slingback Spotlight

Fashion trends this year are a little more feminine. When it comes to shoes, slingbacks are the way to go. The classic ’90s look is not only a great summer look, but it also gives off a workwear vibe. Consider a pair slingbacks flats that can be worn with a maxi-dress, a beach cover up, or even slingback platforms for a party night.

Brands such as Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton bet on the style with elegant, oversized versions which can be worn with denim or a suit. This summer, a double denim outfit with oversized silhouettes is the perfect match for a western hat.

Raffia bags have been a summer staple for years, particularly when it comes down to the beach. Designers are making them more suitable for city life with handbags that can be used as a picnic bag, or a carry-all. Take Bottega Veneta for example. They showed large-tote versions of their signature intrecciato bags with spillover shirts, trinkets, and other items that demonstrated just how errand-proof these styles could be.
