It’s officially summer of 2015 which means a ton of new trends to be on the lookout for! This year is full of throwback 70’s styles, festival looks, boho-chic, and so much more! I have been loving looking at all of the different pieces my favorite stores have right now, as well as how people have putting them all together. Since there’s so many different trends, I picked my five favorites that I have been seeing everywhere to share with you!

1. T-shirt Dresses

I have noticed that there are so many T-shirt dresses in stores right now! They are so effortlessly chic, and can easily be dressed up or down. Wearing a T-shirt dress is also exactly like wearing socially-acceptable pajamas (can you say win-win?!) Here are some of my favorites I have found!

2. Cold-Shoulder Rompers, Dresses, and Blouses

I personally have a cold-shoulder romper, and I absolutely love it! They are perfect for those days that aren’t exactly cool enough to wear pants, or hot enough to wear a tank-top dress. There’s also so many different prints and styles to choose from!

3. 70’s Inspired Pieces

The 70’s are definitely making a comeback this summer, and all of the looks I’ve seen from this era are gorgeous! I love how all of the pieces are flowy and floral – it’s perfect for this summer heat we’ve been having!

4. Jumpsuits

Gone are the days where jumpsuits are strictly reserved for the professional world. They are making a big impact this summer, and look so chic on anyone. Jumpsuits are perfect for a nice dinner out with friends, or can be worn with a pair of strappy sandals for a more casual look, making them so versatile for the summer!

5. Sheer Clothes

Whether they are for a swimsuit coverup, or worn over more opaque, tighter-fitting clothes, sheer pieces are showing up everywhere this summer. They are perfect for lounging by the pool, or wearing on a particularly hot summer day.

These five trends are not the only ones this summer, but they are definitely some of my favorites! They perfectly embody the meaning of summer: laid-back time meant for fun with family and friends! I hope you find your perfect style for this summer, and make it the best one yet.

    I love everything listed on this post! The off the shoulder trend is great, but I have yet to really sport it. My favorite is the t-shirt dress. Who doesn’t like to be comfy AND chic;)?
