These Summer Trends Feel Past Their Prime, so We're Wearing These 5 Instead

It's been a long time coming, but summer is finally here! Now it's time to talk about our favorite topic: trends. This summer feels a little special. After months of cycling through a familiar formula of sweatshirts and lounge pants, the time has finally arrived to show off our best reemergence 'fits. (That includes all the cute dresses, tops, and heels your heart desires.) To get you in the proper sartorial mood, we're counting down the trends we're putting on the back burner and the (affordable) ones that we're eager to dive into this season. From the IG-popular cottagecore revival to billowy maxi dresses, the trends we're gravitating toward right now capture a relaxed, easygoing approach that favors loose shapes in place of ultra-fitted, tight styles. There are a few more summer trends to get through, so get comfortable and keep scrolling to shop them all.

Tailored suiting will always and forever be a fashion constant, but this summer, the hype for ultra-structured pieces has given way to loose silhouettes with soft, romantic details like ruffles and Victorian collars. Take those airy milkmaid dresses we've been seeing everywhere: They have that throw-it-on-and-go appeal that takes the guesswork out of styling.

Shorts are a controversial topic for me, so count me thrilled that tight biker shorts are just about reaching the end of their life span. They never worked that well for my thicker thighs, so I'm all for adopting wide-leg shorts that let my lower half breathe. Pair them with a racerback tank and a loose button-down shirt for fashion-forward styling.

As we explained before, soft, romantic details are having a moment, and you can thank the cottagecore craze for that. It's all about looking like you've stepped out of a country garden getaway complete with lightweight fabrics, sweet collars, and big billowy sleeves.

Chances are you own a boilersuit or two, but this season, consider putting them on pause in favor of a less structured alternative. The latter was a big trend a few years ago, but it's been gradually cooling off among the fashion set. We're keen on a more laid-back silhouette that feels appropriate for an easygoing summer.

Also in the mix of pieces that are on the back burner this season are slip dresses. I admittedly own a whole collection of them, to the point where I have slip-dress fatigue. Sure, the style is a closet staple, but recently, fewer clingy styles are catching my eye. This one-shoulder dress and buckle-belt dress are on point for the billowy dress trend that's been popping up lately, and better yet, they're both under $40.

3 Colors You Shouldn't Wear to a Wedding (Plus 3 You Should)

According to a celebrity stylist and bridal expert.

3 Colors You Shouldn't Wear to a Wedding (Plus 3 You Should)

And just like that, wedding season is upon us again. After what seems like ages, our inboxes are suddenly being flooded with wedding invites and I don't know about you, but it definitely feels as though there are more weddings and wedding-related events this year than in previous years. As we're all re-emerging into the world again, wedding guest attire is something we could all afford to brush up on right now. Let's be honest, it's never been simple to put together the perfect ensemble since there are so many factors to consider like the time of day, venue, dress code, and so many more details.

To shed light on one aspect—which colors to wear to a wedding—we're deferring to the experts. Today, we're tapping Micaela Erlanger, celebrity stylist, bridal fashion expert, and a regular Who What Wear contributing voice to let us in on the do's and don'ts when it comes to picking out a color palette. While there are more colors in the "okay" bucket than we're highlighting here, we're keeping things streamlined and naming three color families that are flawless wedding guest choices for any kind of nuptials. On the flip side, Erlanger is also noting which three hues to avoid wearing (and for good reason).

Continue on to find out the colors to wear and to skip and of course, peruse our shopping picks for the former.

"Remember, this is the bride's special color for the day. Let them shine."

"There is nothing like some shine to say I’m here to celebrate. Metallics make for a beautiful choice whether in silver, gold, gunmetal, or a rose hue."

"This color is too strong and harsh and could distract in photos. Ultimately taking the attention away from the guests of honor and the couple."

"Soft, romantic, and foolproof!"

"Neon already hurts my eyes. Remember you are at a wedding, not a club."

"As the saying goes, the bride needs something blue on their wedding day, who says and who says it can’t be a guest's dress."
