With the idea of going back outside lurking closely over your shoulder, we think it’s finally time to get ready for the comeback of the year: “Hello, summer! We missed you!”
And with cities around the world slowly opening back up to normal life (whatever that means in today’s world), one thing’s for sure: last season’s wardrobe (or last, last season, given the circumstances) just won’t cut it.
That’s why we’ve picked our top 12 favorite styling ideas for this summer.
1. Bold shoulders are back
Eighties not-so-babies will be familiar with the trend - and excited to hear that it’s back stronger than ever. From mutton sleeves to capes and intricate detailing, big shoulders call the shots this season.

2. Comfort is key
After a year spent in sweatpants, it’s no surprise that people are trying to keep the comfy momentum going with loose fitting and baggy trousers. Denim is classic for a reason!

3. Steal from your boyfriend
Another 80’s takeaway, oversized jackets are making their own special comeback. With silhouettes meant to cinch in your waist and make your legs look longer, they can easily be dressed down for an effortless look, or up for a more refined moment.

4. Socks + sandals
And no, we don’t mean your gym socks. This former fashion taboo is still as divisive as ever, but more brands are embracing it with an elevated feel.

5. (Second) Skin deep
A basic that is anything but basic, second-skin tops are versatile in every way. The perfect piece to wear on its own or layer - and with so many variations and price points - you’ll be spoiled for choice.

6. Head scarfs
Another chic nod to the past, head scarfs are popping up here and there as the perfect accessory to tie an outfit together without going too far. From florals to patterns, solid colors, and lettering, there’s a head scarf out there waiting for you to grab it and go.

7. Bare some skin
Temperatures rise, the heat gets hotter, and the hemlines get shorter. Mini dresses, skirts, and body-revealing clothing is taking center stage after a year of oversized, co-ord sweatsuits.

8. In love with the blues
Make any outfit pop with a touch of blue that’ll stand out no matter how you wear it. From bags to shoes, bucket hats, and beyond, going for a shade of blue to liven up any dark-tone outfit is a game changer.

9. Sparkle and shine
Shine bright like a diamond...even in the middle of the day! Stop saving that sparkly number for a nighttime event and give it new life by wearing it out and about in the daytime. It’s your time to shine!

Effortless, chic, and so easy to slip on, jumpsuits are calling for their moment. Bright or neutral, casual or formal, keep one of these in your closet for the next time you’re looking to romp around.
