Summer is *almost* here, and you guys already know I am getting my wardrobe READY. Spring and summer are my absolute favorite seasons to dress for since there are so many fun colors, patterns, and exciting new trends rolling around.
I for one however, know how daunting it can be when shopping and trying to decide which trends are worth giving a try and which you should save your $$ on. Today with South Moon Under, i’m breaking down the trends that are worth trying out and will give you a wardrobe thats perfect for any summer adventures in your calendar! These looks will take you from the beach, to the boardwalk, to the city, to the graduation party you will inevitably have to attend to for a family friend you haven’t seen in 15 years (lol). There’s a little something for every event. Check them out below and let me know your favorite summer trend!
First up for my favorite summer trends, we have matching sets. Matching sets or co-ords like some brands like to call them, are a total game changer. As someone who has a hard time deciding on any one outfit, I love sets. They totally take the guess work out of matching (which we all know can take forever on those “I have nothing to wear days”), and are really cute.
While the set i’m wearing here is pretty casual, it can easy be dressed up with some heels and jewelry, but just as easily dressed down with a sandal and sunglasses. I like picking up a few matching sets every summer because they obviously look great together, but can be paired with other pieces you already have in your closet as well! It’s really a win win.

The second trend i’m an totally here for this summer is BELL SLEEVES. I’ve always been pro big sleeves, shoulders, puffy sleeves, etc. and i’m loving how easily they transition into summer fashion. Bell sleeves are great for a few reasons:
The bell sleeve tie top I am wearing here is one of my favorites for the summer. This look is fun since it can be worn alone, or worn layered. You could pair this with jeans and a top, or by itself with a maxi skirt! The possibilities are endless. Pick one of these tops up in a neutral color and you’ll be shocked by how often you wear it.

I’ve never met a maxi dress I didn’t like! While I used to think I couldn’t wear maxi dresses since i’m on the shorter side at 5’4, i’ve recently decided to embrace my height and wear them anyway! Personally, fashion rules and standards were met to be broken and it’s more fun to wear what you want! Confidence is KEY. A few tips for my fellow shorter girls when buying maxi dresses:
Maxi dresses are awesome because they can be worn casually for a walk in the city or dressed up for a party or event! The length automatically makes them a bit “dressy” which I personally love since they make it look like you put some thought into your outfit even if you didn’t. They are definitely a trend you need to try this summer.

& that’s it! While there are so many spring trends i’m itching to try out (we’re talking tie dye, graphic band t’s, white on white, animal print swimsuits), these are a few that I can’t go without. I really believe that fashion and style should be easy and honestly, as long as you’re wearing something you like, you’re going to look great. My favorite outfits are the ones you can tell are a reflection of the person wearing them. Have fun with it and don’t be afraid to try something new, you might just love it!
