I already told you about my biggest summer fashion pet-peeves — the little (or not-so-little) fashion DON’Ts that pop up every summer — but there are also certain summer fashion trends that I’m happy to see when the warm weather rolls in.
Here are the 12 summer fashion trends I’m loving right now:
Bold Lipstick 1 of 12
Bright Toes 2 of 12Nailpolish overall can be brighter and bolder in the summer, but the toes are especially easy to pop with neon.
Buy Sephora by OPI Neon Lights, $24.50
Flowy Skirts (High/Low Hem Lines) 3 of 12
Sun Dresses 4 of 12They're lightweight, easy, and undeniably summery. Pair them with a sandal, a heel, or even a pair of flip flops, and you'll always be comfortable. And there's something so nice about dresses without having to worry about things like tights or cardigans.
Buy Anthropologie, $129.95
Hats/Scarfs 5 of 12
Retro Swimsuits 6 of 12I'm all for women rocking a bikini — yes, even mothers — but for those of us who prefer to cover-up our post-baby tummies, I love the classic retro swimsuit look.
Colorful Accessories 7 of 12Shoes, handbags, belts — all opportunities to add a pop of summery color.

Flats/Slip-On Shoes 8 of 12Of course I love sandals and flip-flops, but for those of us with ugly feet (ahem) lightweight flats are a must.
Buy: Madewell, $98
Maxi Dresses 9 of 12A summer-time staple, flattering on all body types.

Polka Dots 10 of 12
Tunics 11 of 12Lightweight tunics and kurtas are perfect for breezy summer nights.

Sunglasses 12 of 12Sunglasses can be such a fun accessory, especially in retro shapes and fun colors.
