there are so many trends that are incredible for this summer! the summer trends for 2020 are very wearable ones that can be styled to fit so many different aesthetics!

i personally am not a huge fan of jumping on trends but it is good to try something new and maybe mix in some more trendy items that you love to your wardrobe!

summer trends for 2020 | tie dye



tie dye is probably the biggest summer trend for 2020! there are so many different color and style options so that everyone can find something they love!

this trend is being seen in everything, and i mean everything! there are tie dye scrunchies, bags, shorts, shoes, headbands, dresses, and so much more!

another smaller trend within this is ‘watercolor’ fashion. this is essentially a muted version of tie dye that has a more girly and feminine look! (an example of this would be the dress above)

some of the best places to find affordable tie dye include red dress boutique, tilly’s, & amazon


summer trends for 2020 | tropical prints



this trend is so fitting for summer with the beautiful tropical designs that come in all different types of colors and patterns!

there are more muted options or there are vibrant and colorful choices!

this trend can be easily worn with basics since it is a pattern with a lot going on. this trend is also one that will never go out of style as it is such a summery look that is a classic!

some of the best stores to shop this trend are shein, lulus, & target (check this out for some of my target faves!)


summer trends for 2020 | straw bags



straw bags are something that we are seeing everyone for this summer season! they come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and styles so that you can find one that suits your needs!

there are designs that are fully straw as well as ones that just have a small straw detailing!

there are also in-between versions which mix straw with another material like leather!

these bags are so summery and would look stunning with the tropical prints above for a nice beach day or even a vacation to hawaii!

the best places to shop for this trend are target, DSW, and amazon!


summer trends for 2020 | exaggerated sleeves



the trend of exaggerated sleeves (such as puff sleeves) has been going on for a while and is definitely here to stay for summer!

this is such a feminine style that is also very classic and could be worn so many different ways! exaggerated sleeves are so easy to dress up or down!

these types of tops come in everything from beautiful floral patterns to great basics that can be worn for decades to come!

exaggerated sleeve tops can really be found anywhere at this point but some of my favorite places to find this style of top at affordable prices are abercrombie & fitch, target, amazon, and shein


summer trends for 2020 | crochet



crochet is such a big trend for this summer season that is also a classic and can be worn for any summer!

this style gives off such a summery vibe and would be absolutely perfect for the beach or for a nice summer trip!

there are so many different types of crochet so you are bound to find something that you love with all the choices out there!

some of the best places to shop for the summer trend of crochet are forever 21, lulus, and asos!


summer trends for 2020 | smocking



designs with smocking and ruching are very in style for this summer and are also very flattering on so many different body types!

the most popular version of this right now is a smocked tank top and there are tons of different colors and patterns available in this style!

these types of tops are very comfortable since they are stretchy which helps them fit not only tons of body types, but also many bust sizes.

the best places to find smocked items for summer are nordstrom, windsor, kohls


summer trends for 2020 | one shoulder tops



this style sort of goes into the category of exaggerated sleeves since one shoulder tops draw a lot of attention to your shirt.

one shoulder tops are great for those hot summer days when you need something that will keep you feeling cool while still looking fashionable and in style!

there are tons of options in this style with everything from tighter fitting choices or more boho and baggy ones to even glamorous tops!

some of the best places for one shoulder tops are american eagle, lulus, & revolve!


summer trends for 2020 | midi skirts & dresses



midi skirts and dresses are such a great, modest, summer trend that can be worn at any age while still looking cute and stylish!

midi length dresses and skirts are also so flattering and are perfect for short girls in search of a long dress that doesn’t drag on the floor.

these can also be easily dresses up or down for various occasions or events in the summertime!

midi skirts are another trends that so many brands are currently selling but the best places to find midi skirts & dresses are gap, express, & revolve!


summer trends for 2020 | espadrille sandals



espadrille sandals have been in style for quite a while now but don’t seem to be going anywhere!

i believe it was steve madden that started this trend with the kimmie sandals

everyone loved them so other brands started to make similar versions, many at more affordable prices!

espadrilles can be dressed up or down and can be worn in so many different ways! they are very comfortable while still looking summery and cute!

the best places to shop for affordable espadrilles are amazon, DSW, and target (my fave espadrilles here)


summer trends for 2020 | gold jewelry



gold jewelry is a big trend for summer 2020! it can be worn on any skin tone and there are tons of options in every price point!

to be more specific here, i am talking yellow gold and even more specifically yellow gold chain design jewelry (an example of this would be bracelet in the second picture)

this trend is a classic that will never go out of style and can be worn forever!

my favorite affordable jewelry comes from LC Lauren Conrad, target, & charming charlie
