Top 5 Summer Style Essentials

Every season has its style staples, and Summer 2016 is no different! Each year, some trends change and some all-stars stay the same. We’re breaking down our top five summer style essentials for guys and girls to make putting together your new favorite look a breeze. Keep reading for our picks, and let us know what you’re loving this summer in the comments below.

GIRLS: Flowy silhouettes are a break-out hit this summer. Cold-shoulder dresses and tops are everywhere, and we love how versatile they are. Dressed up or down, the cold-shoulder look will keep you cool, literally and figuratively. Soft shorts are also huge this year – they’re one of our top picks thanks to their comfort factor & fun prints. Shortalls are also making a huge comeback this summer with updated fits, like crisscrossed open backs or a sturdier, standard overall look. Two trends that have returned from last year are the crop bralette and the hi-rise shortie. We don’t see these style essentials going away anytime soon, so get familiar with our latest collection filled with eyelet details and denim destruction.

Summer has arrived. We've picked out our top five summer must-have style essentials.

1. SHORTALLS like the AEO Shortall
2. CROP BRALETTES  like the First Essentials Eyelet Bralette
3. COLD SHOULDER DRESSES  like the Floral Cold Shoulder Dress
4. SOFT SHORTS  like the Tie Dye Soft Runner Short
5. HI-RISE SHORTIES  like the Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie

GUYS: Get out your graphic tees. Updated patterns and prints, especially with southwestern feel, are popping up on our graphics t-shirt this summer. Likewise, trend button-down t-shirts NEED a spot in your closet. Print button-downs can be more casual than your standard white button-down shirt & perfect for a night out. Flex shorts in every color will carry you through any summer activity and complement your printed shirts perfectly. One of our favorite shoes this year is the slip-on sneaker, since they have an edgier feel than lace-ups & are super easy to pull on and go. Keep a lightweight hoodie around for when nights get chilly, especially in a cool indigo wash.
