With summer just a few short weeks away, we have been stocking up on some of our favorite pieces for the season. Fringe bikinis, beach pants and anything/everything crocheted are some of the items we cannot live without this summer. Keep reading to find out how you, too, can stay in style this summer in some of our favorite trends:
Our obsession with fringe took off this spring, and it’s not being halted by the summer season. While we love fringe dresses, rompers and accessories, one of our favorite fringed items is a bikini. Fringe takes any bathing suit from basic to adorable. Choose a fringe bandeau top for a little extra summer spunk, or how about a fringed halter bikini (which might we add, is extremely flattering). Whatever your bathing suit style of choice is, add some fringe and you’ll be the ultimate boho beach babe this summer.
Beach pants are an absolute necessity for the summertime heat. They are light, flowy and adorably chic! And while these pants serve as the perfect beach cover-up, this style is ideal for almost any occasion, whether that be lounging with friends, kicking back by a bonfire, heading to the movies or strolling in the park. Pictured above are some of our favorites. The Victoria’s Secret linen beach pant is casual and laidback, while the pattern of the Billabong Bright Bayou adds a little extra style. We adore this style and think that it’s a must have for every girl this summer.
The two of us love anything and everything crocheted for summer 2014. Whether your item of choice is a maxi cardigan, an itty-bitty sundress, a pair of short shorts, or a cute crop top, if it’s crocheted, then it’s absolutely summer-worthy. Crocheted items are perfect for the sunny weather because they are light and give off a relaxed, beachy vibe. For extra style points, choose a colored crocheted piece instead of a traditional nude. Above are some incredibly affordable yet completely adorable crocheted pieces that we love. Who knew that lookin’ cute and keepin’ a college gal’s budget could be so effortless?
Here’s to hoping that you all have a fantastic (and stylish) summer!
