I feel like we see this trend cycle through every few months. Just last year, patchwork pants were everywhere. But now, color blocked patched tanks are everywhere! I should warn you, it feels like this trend won’t stay around long so don’t go too crazy with your purchases! Still, it could be a fun buy if you’ve adored patchwork trends in the past and if you want something new to spruce up your wardrobe.

2. Sorbet tones

Sorbet tones perfectly match the carefree summer vibes you’ll want to channel this new season. Somehow everything is better in these light pastels. Be on the lookout for T-shirts, wrap tops, and swimsuits in these palettes, including: light orange, light blue, and light brown.

3. Backless tops

Backless tops are cute and classy for this summer, especially for dates or girls night out! Black and white backless tops are especially in fashion. Pair it with high-waisted light washed jeans or patterned pants and you’ve got yourself the sizzling fit to die for!

4. Halter tops

This is the ultimate summer trend. Already turning up but it’ll be everywhere in a month. Halter tops go perfectly with flared pants, tennis skirts, and midi skirts. Also, it’ll be fun to buy some patterned tanks to add a pop of excitement to your closet.

5. Fabric shorts

Fabric shorts can keep you cool and stylish this summer. I’ve seen a lot of people opt for matching sweat shorts and tops but fabric shorts are more than a lounge wear trend. The best part: you can stick to a comfy sweat shorts as PJs.

6. Front button up shirts

Yes, you read that right! I never would’ve guessed that business casual would be the new casual. You can find button up shirts in fun prints, neutral colors, and floral patterns. Look out for silk and satin options. If you’re looking for printed ones, check out your local vintage or thrift store!

7. Cut out dress

Cut out dresses are beautiful, elegant, and just the right amount of scandalous for any occasion! I love this trend because of how simple yet stunning these dresses look. There are so many different ways you can style these dresses: with heels, sandals, boots, and gold jewelry.

8. Checkerboard prints

You knew this one was coming! Though you wouldn’t expect it, this print is extremely versatile, especially when combined with pastels and bright colors that you’ll be seeing this summer. Find them on cropped tank tops, flared pants, cardigans…and much more.
