The 5 Latest Trends That'll Keep You Cool This Summer

Warm weather is in full swing but the temperatures aren’t the only thing getting hotter. This summer’s latest trends feature fresh silhouettes and crisp colors that will have you beating the heat all season long. From flowing maxi dress to oh-so chic cut-outs, these styles will make you feel as cool as you look.

If you’ve been on the hunt for the newest, fashionable staples to add to your wardrobe, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a roundup of the latest trends that’ll keep you looking stylish, even during the dog days of summer.

Mickey and Jenny white dress

The L.W.D.

Swap out your dark denims for a light and airy Little White Dress. Look for one (or a couple!) made with fresh fabric and a classic silhouette that will allow you to take it from day to night. Perfect for summer weddings, date nights, or just about any other occasion, you’ll be able to style your LWD many different ways. The Little White Dress is always on trend, so we can promise that this summer staple won’t ever go out of style.

Cold Shoulder Top

Cold Shoulders

Shrug off the heat this summer and bare your shoulders in a peak-a-boo, cut-out top. This carefree style is one of the latest trends to hit runways and retailers alike. With contemporary silhouettes, these drapey tops are a subtle way to show some skin and can be dressed either up or down for a casual, but elegant, look.

Karen Zambos Maxi

Must-Have Maxis

As comfortable as it is stylish, a breezy maxi dress is the ultimate hot weather fashion staple. Look for one with a flowy silhouette in a bold print or bright fabric. If you’re going for that boho vibe but don’t want to look like a 70’s flower child, choose a maxi dress with modern details such as sharp slits and clean ties. Once you find the perfect one, it’ll be hard to resist slipping into it every single day.

Peak-a-boo Backs

Not much beats the feeling of a cool breeze on your back during a mid-July heatwave. That’s why we can’t get enough of these slightly-daring, peak-a-boo backs. Business in the front with a little party in the back, these dramatic cut-outs and skin-showing styles are simple but chic. So let your back come out of hiding this season and try on one of summer’s latest trends.

Indigenous wrap dress

That's a Wrap

Season to season, this timeless style always seems to be a hot one. A classic wrap dress in a contemporary color or pattern is ultra flattering while still being effortless. If you’re packing for your summer getaway, a soft, jersey wrap dress is your ideal fashion companion and will have you looking sophisticated through the day and night.

We love these latest trends and know they have a lasting place in your wardrobe. We promise you’ll be loving each one of these stylish pieces this summer, and for many after.

And, as always, don’t forget to accessorize –  we suggest with an icy glass of sweet sangria!

Love and Karma
