Not all summer fashion trends put comfort, versatility or practicality first. However, these six practical summertime staples are sure to enhance any wardrobe and are easy to style.

Most women automatically know whether they will buy into a new trend or riot without needing to experiment with it. Not only that, shopping can be a chore for some who do find it tiresome to go to malls. Good thing there are online stores that can make shopping way easier. If crop tops and micro shorts are on your hate list, you might feel left out from the crowd. Don’t worry though. These six chic trends are ideal for all shapes and sizes and best of all, are practical additions to your wardrobe that you will want to wear time and time again.

Slip Dress

The modern slip dress is a throwback to the classic style made popular in the 1990s. Slip dresses are typically made out of a thin and airy fabric, making them ideal companions for the high temperatures of summer. Choose a slip dress in a neutral shade so you can instantly spruce it up for dressy occasions after a casual day of shopping.

Slouchy Biker Jacket

The biker jacket style has been a major trend for the past few years. However, this year it got a serious makeover. Look for biker jackets with a slouchy and relaxed fit in a pastel shade of blue, pink, or cream. This closet essential is perfect for breezy nights and pairs well with virtually any outfit.

Sheer Details

Sheer panels are all the rage for summer tops, light sweaters, and jackets. This trend is a little sporty, but can be dressed up with ease when you choose the right piece. Look for tops in black or white, both popular colors this season, and consider choosing a fitted style over an oversized one for the most versatility.

Relaxed Trousers

Trousers may not seem like a summertime staple, but designers have opted for a more relaxed fit with a lightweight material that is reminiscent of a casual day on the boardwalk. This new style is sire to become your go-to pair of pants for an easy and undeniably chic look. Shades of brown, beige and camel are on-trend and are easy colors to incorporate into your wardrobe.

Bold Floral Patterns

Floral patterns are back this year and are bigger- and more colorful than ever before. This bold pattern is available in every type of clothing imaginable. From printed cardigans to maxi dresses, you can rest assured knowing that the options are truly endless. To keep it simple, choose a fitted top or skirt with a floral pattern and pair it with basic neutrals.

Sheer Lace

Lace is always in style, but it takes center stage this summer. Sheer lace tops, dresses, and cardigans are soft and feminine additions to any wardrobe. However, wearing a sheer dress or top solo isn’t exactly practical, which is why you may want to layer with solid-colored camisoles.

If you want to flaunt the latest trends without sacrificing your comfort, you will love these six versatile summer styles. They can easily be dressed up or down and are practical transitional pieces that you will continue to reach for into autumn.
