It’s becoming that warm, sunny summer weather, and it’s time to bring out the summer fashion! As we move from jeans to jean shorts, it’s time to start preparing fashion for summer 2024. Clothing stores and websites have put in the inside scoop on upcoming trends and what will be popular.

The first item of clothing is linen button-up shirts. These loose flowy shirts are a staple for an outfit on the beach. Linen button-up shirts have been a classic piece for years, but have been resurfacing in mainstream popularity these past couple of months. The most popular way to style linen button-up shirts would be with a colorful tank top and denim bottoms, though they have also been paired as bathing suit cover-ups. These shirts are very breathable and lightweight for the summertime. Whether you decide to wear them as a beach cover-up or with a pair of jean shorts, they will certainly be a main piece in your wardrobe this summer.

To go along with linen button-up shirts would be a pair of wide-leg pants. This style of clothing is very broad and can come in many different styles. Wide-leg pants have been in style for a while now and don’t plan on going anywhere. These pants enhance your waistline with the fitted waistband, which creates a flattering, curvy effect. This article of clothing was popular in the mid-1970s and is making a fast comeback. A perfect way to style wide-leg pants is with a tank top or bodysuit. Wide-leg pants are a perfect, cool staple piece to wear this summer.

A main accessory for this summer is supersized tote bags. These sizable bags are a great way to carry multiple things at once while still being fashionable. Many of these bags are created to be sustainable for the environment, and they also hold a tight grip on the 2024 fashion world. Tote bags aren’t just trendy, they are a mainstay in the fashion industry. This accessory is a great addition to the rest of your beach attire. The way to style this depends on the colors of the bag and clothes. If you were wearing a dull-colored outfit, you could spice the outfit up with a colorful oversized bag. If your outfit consisted of color, you could wear a more nonchalant bag. Tote bags are an easy D-I-Y project that anyone can do! If you decide to make your own or purchase a supersized tote bag, it will definitely be a useful piece this summer.

A more unique style is the handkerchief hemline. This hemline was popular in the early 1900s but is making a fast comeback with a modern twist. While this comes in shirts and dresses, it can also be styled in multiple different ways. The handkerchief hemline is an asymmetrical, ruffled look, that gives a more sophisticated style. It is extremely flattering to any person. Even the most designer brands are embracing this fun hemline! This style is considered the go-to for dresses this summer, as it gives a light, fun look to any dress. The handkerchief hem gets its title from the way the fabric of the dress falls in the shape of a handkerchief.

Overall, summertime fashion will see bold colors mix with trendy styles to create the perfect outfits for all to enjoy. As the school year comes to an end, now is the perfect time to spice up your summer and wardrobe!
