As a professional shopper, I have developed a well-trained eye when it comes to being able to quickly scan the store racks or, in this case, scroll through the best online stores for the standout pieces of the season. Because of this, my return rate is pretty low unless I’m ordering multiple sizes to find the best fit. The summer trends are aplenty this year, which means I have many more tabs open than usual at the moment, and that’s saying a lot.
Some of the top summer trends I can’t shut up about span everything from cool dresses (think cutouts, Scandi-girl florals, and voluminous sleeves) to chic tops (think tie-front pieces, striped knits, and standout button-downs) and ’90s-inspired pieces (hello, flowy matching sets). Ahead, I’m rounding up 30 summer pieces that you’ll wear on heavy rotation this season. I guarantee that some will still be in your closet for years to come, especially the elevated basics, tote bags, and sandals.
