Spring is almost over…can you believe it? And with summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your warm weather wardrobe.
So, to celebrate the coming of all those fabulous hot summer nights and lazy days at the beach, mountains or lakes, I’ve put together a list of my top 10 summer fashion trends to keep you looking cool. First up we have…
Any kind of skirt is a big favorite in my book, but I’m really lovin’ the mid-calf length midi skirt that will be all the rage the summer. So, it’s time to put away those maxi skirts ladies. But that’s okay…with as cute as these look, you’ll be lovin’ the style just as much too.

Stripes have always been a classy fashion trend and a fabulous choice, in my opinion. But these bold stripes are definitely très chic and I can’t wait to add some to my closet. Among the other options, take a look at this lovely Kate Spade dress via Atlantic-Pacific. I’ve been eyeing one for myself all year.

Overalls have been seen all over the runways this year and I couldn’t be more excited! Confession…I kept some of these since the last time they were in fashion. But don’t worry, until recently…I only wore them around the house 😉 But now I’ll be back on-trend wearing, in my opinion, one of the most comfortable items for summer.
So, if you’re like me and you adore overalls, be sure to get some capri and short versions so you can be stylish, comfortable and cool as well!
Not to name any names or be unkind in any way, because this is not that kind of blog, but unless you’re extremely lucky…I’d give these kind of shoes a second thought if you’re in your late stages of pregnancy. Ankle swelling and the heat of the season mixed with clear straps do not make for a pretty picture. Just sayin’.
Ahh…the sixties. I kind of think our love affair with this era has never really faded. Maybe it’s been an on-again, off-again kind of fling. But this summer, it’s back on full force. So tease up those beehives and break out the funky glasses, we’re heading back in time!
To me, this is the funniest trend because we’ve always been told never to mix patterns. But hey…when in Rome, do as the Romans do, right? The key to wearing mismatched prints is to make sure the sizes of the patterns are different so the clashing looks like you did it on purpose.

I always think of Easter when I wear pastels…especially a full outfit of pastels like shown below. But the look is hot, hot, hot for summer. So hop on board Easter bunny…summer fashion is taking you for a spin!
And last but not least, the look of minimalism is a big trend this summer. So one day go big with your mismatched and graphic prints, then the next go basic with soft muted tones and simple accessories and you’re good to go!
And there you have it, 10 of my favorite hot summer fashion trends to keep you looking cool this summer. Hope you enjoyed them!
And thanks for stopping by!
