After a long, cold winter filled with bland long-sleeved pants and shirts, summer is finally here! And since warm weather is approaching, it is also time to expose your summer wardrobe to bright colors and shorts. 

Clothing trends come as quickly as they leave. To get you ahead of the trend, here are the most popular summer clothes according to Pinterest and TikTok. 

1. Levi 501 Shorts

Levi’s is a company best known for their good quality/fit jeans. Recently, a specific pair of shorts has started trending, just in time for summer! The Levi 501s come in over 16 colors. Though $80 is a bit pricey for a pair of shorts, they are a good investment since they have a tight fit and don’t wear out easily. Style these with a cute tank top or graphic oversized T-shirt. 

2. Tankinis

Tankinis were trending in the late 1990s, and this year they are coming back! A tankini is a bathing suit that has a “tank” as the top. Although it is cute, some people are complaining about this kind of suit being brought back. Some are all for having a “tankini” summer, while others think those kinds of bathing suits only look good when you’re younger. Either way, tankinnis are IN, and bikinis are OUT for Summer 2024.

3. Asymmetrical Tops

Asymmetrical tops have been a trend for a couple of seasons, but now that summer is here, it is a perfect time to wear yours. As you can tell by the name, an asymmetrical top is purposefully designed to have an irregular neckline, which makes it so unique and fun to wear. The best thing about this top is that it is slim-fitted. That means it doesn’t matter if you have an hourglass, pear-shaped, or athletic figure, the top molds with your shape, creating a personalized look. This top can be styled with pretty much any bottom: jeans, skirts, shorts, etc.

4. Blue 

Mixing blues has become a popular trend ever since the “coastal granddaughter” style developed on Tiktok. Blue pairs with pretty much any color, but mixing different shades of it with each other gives a beachy, oceanic kind of vibe. Blue is a beautiful color to wear during the summer since it stands out stunningly against a tan. Some blue tints that go together are Tufts Blue and Violet Blue, Teal Blue and Tiffany Blue, True Blue and Turquoise, and St. Patrick’s Blue and Star Command Blue. 

5. Printed Tees

Printed tees have always been around, which is a good thing because they are comfortable and easy to style. The fun thing about them is that each graphic tee is different in some way, there is never one that looks the same. Pairing a graphic tee with jeans, leggings, and shorts, or even wear it over your bathing suit. `


Coastal Granddaughter

Coastal Granddaughter is a style that began trending in Summer 2023. This aesthetic captures the essence of the Eastern Coast beach lifestyle. To dress like a “coastal granddaughter” this summer, having light-toned colors like beige, blues, creams, and whites in your wardrobe are must-haves. Pair loose capris with untucked button-ups, warm-knit sweaters, and striped shirts.
