Summer has officially arrived, and to celebrate, we're reviewing 5 of our favorite trends to try this season. From the timeless elegance of maxi skirts to retro-inspired 1970s fashion, there's a little something for everyone.
Paint it Black:
While summer is often associated with bright and vibrant colors, black is making a bold statement this season. A little black dress is a timeless classic that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Combine a black maxi dress with statement jewelry for an evening look. A simple black tank top can lay the foundation for an endless number of outfits. Black is versatile, always flattering, and effortlessly chic.
Fit & Flare Minis:
We're all in on this trend. One of the most universally flattering silhouettes, the classic fit & flare is just that: Fitted at the waist, with a skirt that flares out. We lean towards lightweight fabrics for breathability and comfort, making them perfect for warmer weather. Pair your fit and flare mini dress with sandals or sneakers for a casual daytime look, or dress it up with heels and statement accessories for a night out on the town.

All About Lace:
Delicate lace details add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. Incorporate lace into your summer wardrobe through tops, dresses, or even accessories. Opt for a lace-trimmed camisole paired with high-waisted shorts for a cute and casual look, or choose a lace dress for a more formal event. The beauty of lace lies in its versatility, allowing you to create a range of outfits that seamlessly transition from day to night.

The popularity of shows like Daisy Jones and the Six have helped 1970s music and fashion make a major comeback this summer. Think colorful prints, flowy silhouettes, and bohemian accessories. Embrace your inner flower child and incorporate these retro elements into your everyday looks. Try pairing a flowy boho tie front blouse with vintage jeans, accessorize with oversized hoop earrings, or layer a lightweight kimono over your swimsuit.
Wyatt Kimono Top, $60
Las Palmas Kimono, $52
Perhaps driven by the continued interest in 1990s minimalism and early aughts fashion, maxi skirts are having a moment. This ankle-length style comes in a variety of prints, colors, and fabrics, making it easy to find one that suits your taste. For a bohemian-inspired look, opt for a flowy maxi skirt with a low rise and a ruffled hemline. If you prefer a more sophisticated approach, choose a solid-colored maxi skirt with a wrap waist. Maxi skirts are perfect for both casual outings and more formal occasions.
