We don’t know about you, but it’s getting hot in here! And by hot, we mean how hot are these clothes? We love, love, love a good print/texture, and in the summer, this means cute prints like polka dots, stripes, gingham and shirring in pretty pastel and lightweight fabrics like poplin, voile and gauze. Combined with the new take in 2018 with cutouts, cold shoulders and tie-front bows, you’ve got a fresh look on these warm weather staples.

1) Polka Dots

Keeping it simple with monochrome colours like black and white, like @spynovard who styles it simple with jeans and the latest round straw bag that’s been making its rounds everywhere (pun intended!) on the ‘Gram.

2) Stripes

Let’s do stripes the multicoloured way! Have fun with the summer version of stripes – a mix of warm and cool tones like aqua blue, fuschias, reds. These striped beauties would totally help you match your surroundings when you’re at your next vacay in Bali or Cabo.

3) Gingham

We like the cute & sexy look and gingham one-pieces with cutouts definitely brings that out. Play it up with cool seasonal accessories like white booties or a very on-trend straw bag with pompoms, like these Southern & Cali bloggers.

4) Smocking

We love the blue hues of this smocked top that Lauren is wearing, making it look like washed and distressed denim fabric but smocked! This definitely ups the cool girl vibe. Also, doesn’t smocking just the easiest thing to wear?fashion-trends-for-summer-2018-smocking
