1. Off the Shoulder Everything

Off The Shoulder Silk Shirt || Christine Off The Shoulder Stripe Top || Black Off The Shoulder Top || Off The Shoulder Chambray Set || Santorini Off The Shoulder Top

Off the shoulder is just so feminine & chic! I absolutely adore this super popular trend! This summer, I think this will pair great dressed down with jeans and espadrilles or dressed up (in top or dress form) with statement piece jewels, dainty strapped sandals or platform wedges! Seriously, you can't go wrong with this style. I personally like the tops that have a wide "off the shoulder strap" for added support! Don't forget, pair with a nude strapless bra or bralette to make sure all is hidden & you can really show off those shoulders.

2. White Leather Handbags

Small Street Cedar Harmony Tote || Filly Stag Satchel || Perforated Faux Leather Backpack || Pebbled Leather Hobo Bag || Regan Feed Crossbody Bag

White leather handbags are perfection for summer. I love mine year round but I really enjoy pairing it with my summer outfits. What I love about white is that it literally goes with anything & everything. It adds a "crispness" to any outfit. One of those things everyone needs in their closet this season! Backpacks are super in & functional. Ya'll should snag one up!

3. Platform Sandals

Day-lee Platform Wedge Sandal || Lavii Platform Sandal || Cece Platform Sandal || Ava 2.0 Platform Wedge Sandal || Hayden Platform Sandal

Platform sandals. My inner 90's child is actually beaming. These are back! & better then ever. Without the super cheap looking suede prints either. ;) Aren't these sandals just to die? I absolutely love platforms in general because well... lets face it- I'm really short. But these just bring a whole new meaning to sexy & cute!

4. Floral Dresses

Floral Print Silk Maxi Dress || Floral Print High Neck Skater Dress || Floral Print Sheath Dress || Floral Print Strap Detail Maxi Dress || Short Sleeve Swing Dress

Floral dresses are just one of those things that will just never go out of style. Mini, maxi, midi... any which way you want it. They are so angelic, ethereal, feminine, pretty. I just love floral prints for bridal showers, weddings (as a guest, but make sure you steer more towards pastels or bolder prints- not white! ;)), baby showers, garden parties, backyard bbqs (think casual fabrics & knits!) the list can go on. I need to keep adding them to my closet. They are the perfect summer grab & go piece.

5. Flare Jeans

Stretch Denim Flare Jeans || Ferris Flare Jeans || Mia White Flare Jeans || High Rise Flare Jeans || Ginger High Rise Flare Jeans

Again, I am so glad this piece is coming back in style! Flare jeans are absolutely perfect for shorties like me, who need some added "height" & longevity to their torso. I seriously believe flare jeans can make anyone "slimmed down" & elongated if paired with the right pieces! Anyone wearing flare jeans, pair with heels or platforms to add even more height & to take your flare "above ground" so to speak. Also, I think they look best paired with minimal up top (super lounged out tee or tank), because they have so much spunk on the bottom! Yay for flare jeans! White washed denim is all the rage this summer... keep in mind when picking out your flares.

6. Fringe Anything

Fringe Ankle Bootie || Fringe Trim V-Neck Poncho || Suede Fringe Mini Dress || Fringe Open Faux Suede Top || Linen Fringe Tank

Well this is a given. Fringe is in. In full force. Fringe anything can go A LONG way. Fringe purse, fringe top, fringe moto jacket, fringed shorts... you get the picture. All fabrics, shapes, sizes... it is seriously so hot right now & everyone looks so hot in it! Want minimalist fringe style? Get a slightly fringed tank like the one shown above & wear this with denim & white sneakers. It just adds a little flair to an otherwise dull outfit!

7. Choker Necklaces

Crescent Moon Leather Choker || Bow & Arrow Open Choker || Shooting Star Open Tassel Choker || Hinge Station Choker || Circle Bead Leather Choker || Faux Leather Choker

GOSH. You guys! All of the trends are coming back. I remember when I was like 10-12 years old, wearing a lace up top with flared jeans, platform sandals, & a choker. I should've just kept all of my old clothes...;). But really! Chokers are SO cute these days! Forget the mesh, although they can be pulled off... by the rare runway model.. & go for the leather, lace, or studded chokers that are on the market right now. Pair it with a white v neck tee, & denim cut offs, or with a maxi dress & strappy sandals. I've already started my collection!

8. Espadrilles

Espadrille Sneaker || Roselle Espadrille || Violette Espadrille Flat || Platform Espadrille || Espadrille Platform Sandal || Halogen Studded Espadrille Flat || Blue Espadrille Platform Sandal

Espadrilles are super comfy, cute, & easy to wear! Plus there are endless options and opportunities for fabrics & colors! Pretty much there is an espadrille for everyone. Plus you can choose one thats flat, scrappy, or with added height. I love the flat-form ones right now, with canvas prints. Also I am obsessed with the Rebecca Minkoff studded espadrille's but those aren't on sale just yet ;) (see these in the sidebar of my blog or in the "Shop" section of my blog), get one's just like it on sale at Nordstrom above! (see the Halogen Studded Espadrille Flat link).

9. Denim Skirts

Mid Denim Button Front Mini Skirt || Button Front A-Line Denim Skirt || Stripe A-Line Denim Skirt || Bianca Button Front Denim Skirt || Released Hem Denim Skirt

I know everyone may be skeptical about the denim skirt trend, because I know for me, it seems hard to pull off. I think midi is better then mini, & A-line is better then tight fitting. It just needs to fit you correctly & I think it can look super cute! I just got one the other week (blog post to come soon), that I plan to pair with an off the shoulder crop top & white sneakers. They can be super cute, & they make for an easy out for ice cream outfit this summer!

10. Ruffled Bikinis

Cutout One Piece Swimsuit || Embroidered Ruffle Bandeau || Crochet Ruffled Bikini || Ruffle Lace Triangle Bikini || Off The Shoulder Ruffle Bikini || Eyelet Ruffle Bikini

Again, these speak for themselves! So many cute, feminine ruffled bikinis out on the market right now! Crochet, eyelet, off the shoulder, one piece, etc. They are just so cute & pretty! I personally love pastels & prints this summer for swimwear. Oh & one pieces! I think they look great for so many body types & can also be super sexy & chic! Happy shopping my friends! Xx
