With each new season comes a lineup of new and inspiring fashion trends. Whether you spot them on the runway or on your favorite Instagram account, trying out new styles (and making them uniquely yours) is one of the most exciting things about the changing seasons. With that said, switching up your look for the summer months shouldn’t put a damper on your warm-weather plans — in fact, it should be part of the fun!
That’s why we’re breaking down a few of our favorite summer trends (think: prairie dresses, bold florals, animal prints, and strappy sandals) and giving you the keys to make them your own. With the help of Prime Wardrobe, we’ve expertly styled our favorite trend-focused looks for summer. The best part? You can order up to eight pieces at once, only pay for what you keep, and free returns makes it easier than ever to land your ultimate look. Mixing up your closet has never been easier.
Once summer rolls around, it’s likely your schedule will be full of after-work drink plans and dinners with friends, so having a repertoire of outfits that transition seamlessly from day to night is crucial. A silky slip dress like this gorgeous charcoal-blue option with a set of simple gold hoops is a classic, sophisticated look that can go from work to play, no edits required. Paired with a chunky dad sneaker for maximum comfort and a contrasting yellow buckled mini-bag, you’ll be ready for wherever the day may take you.
Whether you’re heading to a museum date or simply a brunch with friends, a ruched mini dress is a hassle-free piece that’s so easy to wear. In a bold and bright floral print, this bell-sleeved dress from Prime Wardrobe is ideal for both day and night. We completed the outfit with a pair of strappy heeled sandals, cat-eye sunnies, and a woven mini-bag — all in black — to keep the dress the focal point of the look. This outfit’s one you’re sure to keep on repeat.
Prairie dresses are one of the best summer trends we simply can’t get enough of. They’re sweet and ruffly, come in a variety of lengths, styles, and prints, and are super easy to dress up or down depending on your mood. One of our current favorites is this option in a contrasting zebra print that adds just the right amount of edge. Paired with a kitten-heeled statement shoe like this pointed white boot, you’ll add a little height while maintaining that laid-back, casual feel. Add a pop of color and an ultra-modern touch with a bright crossbody bag that ties the whole look together.
A little playful and a little rebellious, animal prints are a timeless trend that can be tailored to truly any wardrobe. We’re loving an animal print focal piece — in this case, a leopard-print slip skirt — paired with edgy accessories like pointed red ankle boots and a DIY-inspired patchwork mini-bag. Paired with a minimal white tee (this one’s a little cropped to show off the waist), this look is totally effortless, yet full of fun summer energy. Just throw on a roomy denim jacket when the sun goes down.
