Summertime is when the heat is at it's peak, but don't worry. We're here to give you some trends that will keep you stylish and cool, and you can shop at your local thriftstore now.
Slouchy suiting is already spot-on for summer. A skin-baring top and flip-flops make the look more relaxed and breathable. It can be daring and darling at once. Team roomy trousers with a matching blazer to scale it up.
THE RESURGENCE of 2000
With noughties style having a resurgence (2000 trends), the denim maxi styled with a simple white tee or tank is a great, modern way to tap into the trend. The denim mixed is so eco-chic, and a body suit is very universal. It will be the perfect pick-me-up for Summer.
Crop it like it's hot
It's all about the cropped blazer this season for a polished take on nostalgia. We love one worn as a top with edgy jeans for a night out. Once you find a statement blazer, you'll be giving us a Material Girl meets Working Girl crossover—we're so here for it. Plus, pairing a cropped top with eco-friendly jeans with the right detail will have you living for the moment. Try updating a plain pair of jeans with one of the ideas below.
Nuthin' but net
You may typically wear a netted dress waterside, but why not have a city moment by styling one with a cropped shirt layered atop for dinner? We love the counterbalance of this form-fitting silhouette beneath a structured white shirt. Anything with raw hems add to the contemporary nature of this cropped silhouette.
BEAT THE HEAT IN A CABANA
Shirt, that is. The tension of a crop top with the menswear-inspired top and jorts is too good. We're here for a classic tropical print, but how fresh is this color combo? The iconic 501 fit never fails, even if you trim into jorts yourself.
When giving the season's bubble hem a try, hand-smocked voluminous dresses paired with socks and casual tennis shoes are a favorite way to interpret the trend this summer. For a more breathable shoe option, go with sleek, comfy sandals. Looking for tactile cotton-blend fabrics at the thrift store feels so intricate yet airy. Color accents steer casual tennis shoes into summer territory.
Amplify the effect of basics with a supersized tote bag—the result is relaxed with poise. Style an ultra-roomy tote with Monday through Friday workwear, then pack it for a weekend retreat at the beach. Options are truly endless when it comes to a tank top, dress, or good crewneck tee.
Dial up the mood on a chilly coastal day in a relaxed, all-white look. The intricacy of this crochet cardigan is so enchanting. Why not stick with a crochet theme?
Light up the room in a pop of color with dynamic details. Find something with beautiful gathering so it looks thoughtful and unlike any other thing in your wardrobe. Wavy hoop earrings could add an elegant movement to this look.
A nautical knit is quintessentially summer—a half-zip is the perfect silhouette. This sweater has the perfect boxy fit. Crisp and cool, the poplin boxer short is a summer MVP.
shout out to the cutouts
While beachy in vibe, the cut-out dress look can be equally appealing in the city. Level up the summery feel of this alluring dress with details like a bright sandal or jewelry. Honestly, how good would you entire ensemble look?
A sweetheart top brings a darling touch to utilitarian cargo pants for a so-fresh update on summer whites. This knitted top brings the drama, from the sculptural design features to the knuckle-grazing sleeves. Contrast stitching adds depth to this tonal summer look.
how low can you go
Low-rise pants have officially returned, from jeans to trousers and casual chinos. The vibe is relaxed and right on for summer. This pre-loved striped Chanel top strikes a '90s nautical tone flawlessly. Pro tip: Size up in a menswear-inspired chino for that effortless slouch.
Nothing says summer like woven accessories and a vibrant cotton poplin dress. Without question, your local thriftstores could be carrying the perfect straw bags. Adding a sleek clog will convert this outfit into a modern boho style.
The summer urge to show skin is real. Rethink your approach with a micro top and side-slashed jeans. Three cheers for a top with built-in jewelry. These jeans are too cool, from the faded wash to the slouchy legs and side slashes.
Flat minimalist sandals temper the formality of a romantic dress for daytime. Between the tied waist and full pleated skirt, this linen blend midi is giving old-world elegance. String sandals are just the thing to add to a summer dress that masters summertime minimalism.
blue jean baby
A baby tee or tank is key in the heat—baggy jeans and a boxy blazer are excellent counterbalances. Black and white is our new obsession. Shopping basics at your local thriftstore is one of the well-priced favorites for modern staples.
The fluidity of pleats feels breezy and elegant with white trousers—so polished for dinner or the office. We love a good linen pant in the South. The straw hat adds a a bit of flare to the white linen.
