Your ultimate guide to 2024 summer fashion

Linen! Sundresses! Sandals! With sooo many summer essentials, how's a girl to start on her vacay wardrobe refresh?

If you're feeling a bit stuck on what to add to your must-wear lookbook this szn, we're here to help. Here's what's on tap (and on trend) this summer...

Gingham PJ shorts


Comfy, bedtime chic turned into a full, everyday fit? It's the perfect cozy-day vibe we absolutely need—and works for coffee dates with your BFFs or a quick errand run. Plus, these babies come in so many colors, making the outfit combos endless.

Gingham shorts + an oversized crewneck + a beach sunset = the perfect fit to a perfect end of a summer day.

Cowboy boots


Giddy up, GF: Cowboy boots have totally come back in style and are all over Instagram. (Remember the pair everyone owned as a kid and wore to country concerts? Yup. Dust those off pls.) A long skirt paired with these country-chic boots makes for the perfect beginning to your coastal cowgirl wardrobe.

Button downs


Not only do these serve as the ideal beach cover-up on a warm day, but a simple yet colorful button-down is the perf extra layer if the nighttime temps are a bit chilly. And, once again, another ode to the coastal-granddaughter aesthetic that's literally all over TikTok. 

Colorful Adidas


These super trendy sneakers are another 2024 staple that have totally made a comeback from 2016. (Remember the Adidas Superstars?) This time, girls all over our FYPs are sporting these kicks in so many bright colors—including hot pink, mint green and even variations of cheetah print. (Which ofc, have all been TikTok-approved.) 

Drop-waist dresses


A flattering and feminine style, drop-waist dresses are a summer staple and so gorg! Whether you're hosting a Sunday brunch with your besties or are going out to dinner with the fam, this dress can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. (Another wardrobe essential with multiple functions? Check.)
