Summer isn't just about sundresses and bikinis (not all about them, at least). We tapped the top distributors from your favorite brands—Shore Trendz, Wanderlux, Riah Fashions and Belcorva—to weigh in on the hottest trends of the season. They talked about serious Venice vibes, a new way to wear your pearls, and a pant style we haven't seen in over a decade. Read on for their industry insight on the styles you should be paying attention to, ahead.
We've waxed poetic about our obsession with tie dye, but the summer trend is leaning further into its West Coast roots. "We are loving a California cool vibe for the warmer months, including upbeat and casual trends such as Hawaiian shirts, bucket hats, racer back tank tops, and anything tie-dye". Polish off the look with denim cut-offs and old-school sneakers like Vans to really capture the SoCal aesthetic. "The beautiful print technique feels fresh in sophisticated silhouettes such as dresses and skirts." In other words, you don't have to go full-hippie to participate.
