Who else is ready to ditch the loungewear more often and get dressed up again? Need a wardrobe update but not sure what to wear or where to start?
I am with you. Most of us haven’t been getting dressed up in almost a year – and I am ready! That is why I am so excited to share seven summer trends to swap your loungewear for in 2021.
Stripes are the print of the summer and I’m seeing them everywhere, from bold ones to tiny stripes. It’s a classic and timeless pattern and so chic.
Beach Outfits and Bikinis
Something flowy is perfect for both lunch dates with friends and as an easy coverup over any swimsuit.
I wore this seafoam green cut-out maxi dress to Palm Beach on my recent vacation with girlfriends. It was perfect for the tropical weather!
I love a pretty feminine bikini and this black lace is a timeless style. It comes in white and red too and a few different styles in the top, including a halter.
I bought this Prada raffia bag for myself as a birthday present in St. Barts. It’s the perfect size for a little carry all to the beach or as an everyday bag.
Little White Dresses
If you have been following me a while, then you know I love dresses. It’s my favorite outfit because it’s one and done – and it’s so girly and feminine!
The little white dress is everywhere this summer. Dress it up with or pair of heels or wedges or wear some low-key footwear – like sneakers or slides. Mini, midi or maxi – they are all the rage this season!
Sadly this white one I wore in Palm Beach is sold out! But I linked some similar to this – which would all look good dressed down too.
Pastel colors are such a beautiful way of embracing color for the summer. It’s a fun way of being creative and looking chic at the same time.
This flowy lavender dress with pockets would be perfect for a wedding, baby shower or fancy Sunday brunch. It’s sold out in this color but available in about 5 other colors. I’m wearing an xxs, I’m 5’2″.
They are all over the place – on tops and dresses and I’m so here for it! It’s such a feminine style and looks good on everyone.
I love a puffy sleeve top tucked into jeans. Casual and versatile – you can wear tops like this to lunch with friends or even to the office. This pink eyelet top and white jeans are from Express and are currently on major sale! (The top runs big size down. I’m wearing an xxs.)
The Chloe pink flats have been one of my favorites to wear this summer – an easy way to add a pop of color to any outfit!
Give me all the soft girly vibes with this trend! It’s one of my all-time favorites to wear because I feel so pretty in them!
I will never grow tired of a pretty floral pattern – it’s just timeless and so easy to style.
I am seeing this feminine pattern on everything from tops and jackets to flirty dresses and skirts. I am linking some of my favorites here – Click on any of the images below to shop.
Two of my favorite florals this season are the two dresses below. I wore both this spring with a little denim jacket and sneakers. I also took them both to palm beach and wore them out to dinner with friends. I added wedges to dress them up.
The red floral is only $68 – it’s a great price for a dress that you can wear year-round. (Would look great for Valentine’s day too!)
The purple floral is only $20! It’s one of my favorite bargains I have found lately and comes in all these fun styles!
Midi and Maxi Dresses
I keep my midi and maxi dresses in my closet all through spring, summer, and into fall. That’s the beauty of these dresses. I throw on a jean jacket and booties with them when the weather gets cooler.
