The dream of laying poolside in a tropical location with a fruity drink in my hand is something I think about on a daily basis. Finally, that time has come! I don’t know about you, but I couldn’t be more excited about it being summertime!
Bright colorful prints, easy dresses and shorts that show just enough leg have been dancing in my head for months. The care-free summer days ahead need the perfect outfits to go with them! So whether you are packing for a tropical destination or a weekend around town, the summer trends will have you all set to beat the heat. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
Fun in the Sunnies!
One of the easiest ways to bump up your summer wardrobe is with a cute pair of fashion sunglasses. Think reflective lenses in bright colors and interesting shapes like these or even these! There is no reason your eye protection can’t be fun.

Maxi in midi dresses have become a summer staple in the last few years. The best way to update this style, is to look for dresses with the high slit like this one. They add just a little bit of sexiness when you’re walking but still have all the coverage with a longer hemline.
Florals are always a fun and classic summer print. Look for styles with oversized floral prints to stand out. If you’re really ready to rock this tropical trend, grab a pair of palazzo pants in a floral pattern!
I love a good vintage look for the summer season! To bring the look into current times go for pieces in a classic polkadot with interesting modern details. Think of slits and cut outs. This dress is the perfect mix of old fashioned and current styles! All you need is a red lip and you’re ready to go!
