Right now, I’m ready to add some new pieces to my closet for summer, and some cool trends recently caught my eye. What I love most about them is that they’re actually centered on basic closet staples but with interesting details that make them feel modern. They're the perfect blend of comfortable and cool. I’m seeing basics like tank tops finished with ribbing and collared button-downs finished in breathable linen. Perhaps one of my favorites? T-shirts that have been updated with muscle-tee silhouettes and padded shoulders that transform the essential piece into something special.
Ahead, I’m highlighting seven of the most comfortable summer trends sitting in my shopping cart now that also happen to be super chic. While these are already starting to bubble up now, they will continue to be popular in the coming months. Go on to see how fashion girls are already wearing them now, and then shop my edit.
Swimsuits as tops? I'm very on board and honestly can't wait to try this out for myself. I love the idea of pairing one with a suit like in the photo here, but I would also wear one with a linen skirt or pants like the Matteau wrap top is styled below.
Yep, "ugly" shoes are back—this time returning as chunky slides with thick soles and buckled straps. I'll admit that I haven't been a huge fan in the past but have a pair sitting in my cart right now. I promise these comfortable sandals will be everywhere.
Tube tops are the ultimate throwback piece that is officially here to stay. I think they're the perfect foundational layering piece to wear underneath a linen blazer or simply pair with jeans and mules.
Linen is the breathable fabric that is practically made for summer. Right now, I'm seeing it everywhere but especially in collared button-down tops. Style yours with just a few buttons secured at the waist.
