Just because something is trending doesn’t necessarily mean you have to hop on board, but with so many adorable (and easy) clothes, jewelry and accessories to choose from this summer, there are bound to be a few looks you’re willing to embrace. From bold buttons to tiny sunnies to polka-dot everything, these are all the trends you’re about to see at every weekend barbecue on the block.
17 Fashion Trends That Are Going to Be Huge This Summer
Soft Woven Bags
Last summer it seemed like everyone and their mother was sporting a structured basket bag. This year, it’s time to loosen up. Flexible net bags are the new "it" style, just like the one Coterie member Tiffany Jais is sporting here.
These are not the rainbow braided anklets you wore in high school. The 2018 version is chic, simple and sophisticated. Wear them with equally dainty kitten heels, slip-on mules or barely there sandals.
We first spotted this cheery print over on the runways at Gucci, Chloé and Peter Pilotto back in 2016. And now it's finally ready to hit the streets. Seriously, how adorable is Coterie member Grace Atwood?
Yves Saint Laurent made them a must-have in 1970. Then they were out. Then the preppy set brought them back to life in the early 2000s. Then they went into hibernation. Well, time to dig those lace-up wedges out of your closet because the quintessential summer shoe is making yet another a comeback.
Give a nod to classic '50s style with a line of bold "look at me" buttons down the front of your dress, like Coterie member Krystal Bick. An off-the-shoulder neckline or hip-hugging silhouette brings this throwback into the present day.
These adorable little handbags first popped up in late 2015 as super-cute (though impractical) accessories to tote around. Since then, they've evolved into perfectly petite crossbodies that are actually big enough to fit the essentials—phone, keys, credit card, lip balm.
Coterie member Katie Sturino knows that wearing one of the season's trendiest patterns is even more fun when you double up on a dress and shoes.
We will gladly ride this comfortable shoe trend all the way to the bitter end, thank you very much. Choose kicks in light colors and pair them with girly pieces, like a flowing midi dress. (Thanks for the inspo, Babba Canales.)
