8 style trends to add to your summer wardrobe


Ride through the summer heatwave in style with these popular fashion trends.

While the high summer heat has us already dreaming of colder temperatures, we still have a long way to go. Stay cool and look cool during the long heatwaves with summer’s most popular style trends.

From bold colors to playful prints to Paris-inspired pieces, sunbathing has never looked so good. Many warm weather styles have been introduced this season to keep the summer fun going.

Beat the heat by adding some of these must-try trends to your current wardrobe rotation. Here are the eight popular summer styles we’re sweating over.

retro prints

This season sparked a reboot of the ’70s prints. From psychedelic florals to colorful geometric patterns, bold patterns have brought a new groove to summer wear.

silk scarves

The hottest summer accessory of 2022 is a silk scarf. The seemingly simple scarf can be worn in many ways, including in the hair, around the neck and on a handbag. Many brands have released their own version that doubles as a top.

Crocheted knitwear

Crochet knit is getting a lot of heat this year. Perfect for summer’s ‘beach’ aesthetic, open-weave knits are lightweight and breathable, making extreme temperatures much more bearable.

coastal chic

referenced from ell, Marie Claire, InStyle and more than the “coastal grandmother” trend, this look defines understated luxury. Think Bermuda shorts, canvas sets, striped button-ups, the perfect pair of denim, comfortable shoes and a simple bag.

Pleats & Gathers

Textures are important at any time of the year, but especially this summer. Pleats are classic yet sophisticated. You can opt for a beautiful, event-worthy dress or a midi-length skirt that you can wear every day. Gathers help bring shape and depth to a garment. Look for ruffles in handbags and pants for a touch of texture.


Show a little skin in this popular summer trend. Cut-out styles seen last summer are back this year in bolder hues and interesting placements. From sporty basics to monochromatic jumpsuits, there’s a style for anyone wanting to try the negative space trend.

Everything white

If bold colors and playful prints aren’t your thing, opt for something fresher and cleaner like an all-white ensemble. This summer trend plays squarely with the coastal core look, but you can still dress it up with a white suit or a white tank top and maxi skirt.

Bold bags

A statement bag is an essential piece in any summer wardrobe. The saturated accessories to be seen this summer are playful and fun and come in many bright colors like yellow, lime green and fuchsia. There are countless shapes, sizes and price points to choose from when looking for a must-have bag.
