If you want to look effortlessly chic this summer, update your wardrobe by integrating these five fashion trends. Creating buzz since spring, these styles are easy, comfortable and with a little imagination, can help you create a look all your own.

Shirt Dresses

A shirt dress is an easy piece that can transition from desk to drinks with an edit of accessories. To keep the style fresh for summer, it’s all in the details – look for asymmetrical hemlines, vibrant hues and geometric prints that highlight the dress’ classic button-down tailoring and collar.


This one-piece top and bottom garment is another perfect transitional day to night piece. For the most impact, accentuate a monochromatic jumpsuit in a neutral hue like black, khaki or navy by layering on colorful belts, necklaces and pairing it with block heels.

High-Waist Shorts

Shorts that hit at your natural waistline are a chic way to beat the heat this summer and can elongate the look of your legs. For a fresh approach, try on a pair in a luxurious fabric like silk, tailored with cuffs, or in a light wash distressed denim.


Not only comfortable and easy to slide your foot into – hence the name – this sandal style is the chicest option for summer this year. For maximum style impact, opt for slides in animal prints, gold hardware details, or rich, textured leather.

Bucket Bags

A bag shaped like a bucket with a drawstring cinched opening is the casual yet chic approach for work or weekend. Rich leather in neutral shades or vibrant color blocking accentuates the shape of this must-have summer accessory.
