These Are The Micro Trends To Get You Through Summer

Say goodbye to oversized knits and sweatpants.

Style

Summer is finally here and we're seeing the latest in this season's biggest trends exploding everywhere. Excitedly exiting the cold and gloomy winter months, fashion girls everywhere are taking advantage of the coolest new and re-emerging styles for the warm weather season. With there being much anticipation to finally be outside after a year and a half, I've seen so many new and refreshing styles to add to my closet in anticipation of a stylish summer like never before.


Breaking free from oversized knits and sweatpants, I'm longing to engage in wild prints, bright colors and enticing looks as I just want to have fun with my outfits again.

From psychedelic prints to wide leg denim jeans, this summer is all about breaking out and going bold even if it's an occasion that calls for a cute yet casual moment. With there being so many styles worth talking about, scroll to find both classic and trendy items worth adding to your summer wardrobe below.

1.The Designer Shoulder Bag

Every stylish girl needs a designer shoulder bag in her life and Coach is the perfect starter brand. As the company makes a major comeback, their newly released styles are modern with a vintage flair. For a designer bag with an affordable price tag, this Coach pillow bag is a go-to bag for summer.

2."Boy" Shorts

Oversized shorts made their first appearance early last year during the first round of quarantine but now that we're back outside, pair them with chunky socks, sneakers and a cute crop top and you've got a comfy cool girl look for a casual summer day. For an easy on the go look, add a dainty hoop earring along with stackable rings and layered necklaces for a feminine touch.

3.The 90’s Jean

High-waist denim is a classic style that is here to stay but it's the wide leg trend that is making its way back into our lives this summer. The wider the leg, the more stylish the silhouette. From white to blue denim, add a variety of washes to your closet this season.

4.The Updated Maxi

A maxi dress should be on top of every wish list this summer but it's the style of dress that matters most. This year's asymmetrical trend is adding major appeal to all types of clothing styles and this dress is one of my faves so far! Casually paired with a flat or high-heeled sandal, this is a perfect look to compliment a beautiful warm sunny day.

5.The Oversized Button Down

Always essential no matter the season, an oversized button down is a stylishly lightweight addition everyone needs in our wardrobe. Easily tossed over a casual look, a classic white button down is a girl's best friend. What I love about a button down is the variety of colors, prints and lengths to add to your wardrobe mix.

6.Oversized Blazer

Another must-have in your closet is an oversized blazer. For summer, I strongly suggest a lightweight soft light pastel or brightly colored option paired with a stylish crop top. A blazer is a must-have every season, but it's the color that matters most this time of year.

7.A Matching Set

One of my favorite trends this season, big bold prints are the micro trend we never knew we needed. There's something about this head to toe print-heavy look that genuinely makes me happy. Keep an eye on matching sets in different colors, prints and materials for a variety of looks to choose from.

8.Abstract Prints

Transitioning from tie dye to water colors, this season's newest color mix is the abstract multicolored print. There's no question when adding a standout swim piece to your wardrobe this summer created but when in a retro-inspired multicolored print, it's a match made in paradise. Playful prints are huge this summer, so adding a few pieces to your wardrobe this season for a modern yet vintage is a psychedelic trip you won't regret.

9.Colorful Sunglasses

Colorful frames are having a major comeback this season. It's been a while since I've had the urge to match my sunglasses with my outfit but I'm on the hunt for a range of vibrant shades that will effortlessly brighten up my everyday life. We're adding color to our wardrobes from our head to our toes this season.

10.Platform Slides

My favorite shoe style for summer, the platform thong sandal is the chicest look of them all. I can't get enough of the elevated look, and how it takes an everyday casual look to new heights. With a variety of colors to choose from, these sandals can be worn with pretty much anything.

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
