Summer Fashion Trends: Summer Instagram Looks

What’s the one thing we all look forward to in the summertime?

We can finally show off our best summer outfits over on Instagram!

When it comes to creating unique content for the ‘gram, we already know that there’s a ton of stuff that’s going to impact how our photos turn out, from finding a cool spot to take pictures to getting the best lighting. But honestly, when you’ve got a really good outfit on… none of that other stuff matters.

Because all eyes are on YOU.

Haven’t been keeping up with the latest fashion trends? Here’s a list of the top summer fashion trends that you should know about before heading into your next #OOTD sesh!

1. Statement earrings

What’s the ultimate prop for your next #OOTD shoot? Statement earrings.

If you don’t already own a pair… well, you need to get your hands on a pair of bold dangling earrings or even hoops ASAP. Bold earrings are a pretty big deal this summer. When in doubt, just remember that the general rule of thumb for this summer when it comes to summer fashion trends is – the bigger, the better.

There’s a lot that you can do with a pair of bold earrings – it’s one of the easiest ways to take an outfit (that’s already pretty cute) to the next level.

But the best part is the versatility. They can be the perfect accessory to complement an outfit but even on their own – they make a pretty big statement.

2. Oversized sunglasses

What’s the #1 prop you need to get your hands on this summer to step up your Insta-game?

A pair of oversized sunglasses.

A gigantic pair of sunglasses is the real MVP when it comes to summer fashion trends. Seriously, it’s the one thing that never goes out of style.

And for some reason, oversized sunglasses seem to be universally flattering.

Feature a pair of oversized sunglasses in your next #OOTD shoot to send out fashionista vibes without even really trying.

3. White sneakers

Here’s another staple piece that you need to get your hands on ASAP, because it’s definitely not going out of style anytime soon – white sneakers.

There’s plenty to admire about a pair of fresh, white kicks!

It’s really no secret that sneakers have dominated the world of street fashion, becoming the epitome of street style in the rawest form.

We can also appreciate the versatility you get from a pair of white sneakers. Because they go with everything. They work well for a super casual look (white t-shirt and jeans) or you can even pair them with long trousers and a blazer over top. The outfit combos are endless!

4. Denim everything

Some people love denim. Others? Not so much.

But if you don’t already own a ton of denim… now would be a great time to stock up.

With the current forecast for summer fashion trends, it’s pretty obvious that the denim craze is about to get a lot more serious. This summer, we’re going to be seeing denim jackets, denim shirts, denim skirts, denim accessories – denim everything!

5. Neon green

Content feed looking a little bland?

Here’s a little secret.

Add a pop of color to your feed in an instant by coordinating an outfit that features a bold, vivid hue for an #OOTD post. When it comes to current summer fashion trends, the main theme is pretty much all about being BOLD.

So which color should you get your hands on ASAP? Neon green.

Honestly, don’t knock it until you try it! With the right fit and cut, this color can surprisingly be quite flattering!

6. Slip dresses

If you’re not a fan of the scorching weather, you’ll be happy to hear that you can keep cool this summer while staying on top of the latest summer fashion trends. This season, the ‘barely-there’ aesthetic is a major vibe when it comes to outfit inspiration.

From perforated and mesh fabrics, to casual satin slip dresses, we’re going to be seeing a lot of lighter, airy fabrics all over the place. Layer a white t-shirt underneath a slip dress to create a trendier look!

Bonus tip: Personalized accessories are "definitely in," which allow people to add their name (or initials) to products like iPhone caseshandbags, and AirPods cases. Celebrities like Sofia Villarroel, Kaia Gerber have even been caught monogramming their initials/names on various items.
