Five Must Have Summer Outfit Trends

Even though the official start of summer is still a few weeks away, some of us are already feeling that summer vibe. The sun is shining, the pools are open, and to a certain degree, school is out. Now’s the time to take a deep dive into our closets and see what we really have to keep us feeling stylish and cool during these hot months. While there are tons of trends to choose from, below are some of our favorite, and very wearable, summer outfit trends. What are some things you’re seeing and loving this season?

1. Bright colors

Bright colors are still holding strong, and we’re having so much fun mixing and matching them with our favorite closet staples. Go as bold as you want with this summer trend. The below outfit is styled with a bold pink tee, white bottoms, white sneakers, and topping off with a denim jacket. But, if it’s too hot, feel free to skip the jacket, the outfit will totally stand on its own. If you’re not ready to make a huge bold statement, start small with a colorful bracelet, shoes, or handbag.

2. Linen

Linen is something else we’re seeing a lot of this summer. It’s perfect for this time of year because it’s a light and breezy fabric. Also, linen pants are a great alternative to shorts but will still keep you cool. Below, a bright yellow tee (see the previous trend) is paired with some airy linen pants. Finally, this look is finished off with some fun accessories and a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes.

3. Blue and White

Next up on the summer trends list is blue and white. That’s because it’s hard to walk into a store without seeing this color combination. It’s everywhere! Blue and white stripes, floral patterns, ditsy florals, or even just the classic combination of a white tee with denim bottoms. You can’t go wrong with blue and white this summer. The outfit below is a simple white tee with a blue striped skirt. The bold color trend is once again pulled into this look with some orange earrings and colorful bracelets. Lastly, to keep this look casual, it’s finished off with some comfy white sneakers.

This is a trend that’s been sticking around, the ditsy floral. This is a great pattern that is pretty flattering on everyone. Not to mention it’s good for pattern mixing. The look below is styled using a ditsy floral top and white bottoms however this would also look wonderful with a white top and a ditsy floral skirt or shorts. Also, you can skip the denim jacket if it’s too hot, and the neutral wedges finish off this look perfectly.

5. High-Waisted Shorts

A carry-over from the high-waisted pants of winter are the super trending high-waisted shorts of summer. Not only do they help keep even some of your shorter shirts tucked in and looking neat, but they can be very flattering. Also, they help hold everything together and typically rest at the slimmest part of your waiting, creating a nice silhouette. The below outfit is styled with a bold yellow tank against some chambray high-waisted shorts and metallic sandals.

Bonus: Sundress

If you’ve followed Alison and GYPO for any amount of time, then you know that she is not a big fan of dresses, however, she has become a huge fan of the one-and-done pieces, especially for summer and we couldn’t agree more! During the craziness of the summer months, dresses make getting ready even easier. Now all you have to do is throw on a cute sundress and a few accessories, and you’re ready to go in minutes. Below a solid dress is styled with metallic sandals, and some fun orange earrings add an additional pop of color.
