Whether you’re planning a trip this summer or want to attend more social gatherings as the weather gets warmer, you’ll want to make sure you look your best. Several of the trends of the summer are a nod to the styles we enjoyed in the late 1990s and early 2000s and will give you a sense of nostalgia while you’re getting dressed for a special occasion. You can also express your style with vivid colors and accessories that will bring your entire outfit together. Here are some of the fashion trends you should look out for this summer.


Brands like Prada and Chanel are debuting mini skirts that were popular during the 2000s. If you remember going on spring break and watching your favorite videos on MTV’s TRL, you likely recall this trend. These skirts are available in khaki and silkier materials that hug your curves. You can wear a belt with the miniskirt as well; leather belts are ideal for khaki skirts and chain belts look great with silk skirts. This trend is a fashionable way to show off your legs this summer, and the skirts look great with tank tops or crop tops, which are also on-trend for summer.


Fringe dresses, tops, and skirts are all the rage this summer and instantly make your outfit more visually appealing. This style is reminiscent of the flapper dresses that were popular in the 1920s. Fringe clothing has a celebratory feel to it, and designers are debuting fringe pieces as a way to boost the moods of consumers as we’re coming out of the pandemic. You can find fringe clothing in a variety of colors but many of the formal pieces are in metallic shades. Gold and bronze fringe dresses are ideal for people with warm skin tones; platinum and silver look great on individuals with cooler skin tones.

Elaborate Jewelry

Remember watching awards shows and fashion events in the early 2000s and seeing your favorite celebrities wearing jewelry pieces like body chains, belly chains, and arm cuffs? Well, these jewelry pieces are making a comeback this summer. Whether you’re into gold, silver, or rose gold jewelry, you can find chains that fit over your torso or stomach to add the perfect finishing touch to your look. Arm cuffs are essentially bracelets that fit at the top of the arm instead of on the wrist. You can find cuffs in your favorite metal, and there are neon, tortoiseshell, and cloth versions of arm cuffs available as well. 

Another great trend this summer is photo jewelry which is a wonderful way to remind you of the wonderful places you have traveled to with family or friends. Jewelry is a fun and easy way to express yourself and wear what makes you happy. Take the time to find jewelry that you love.

Biker Chic

If you want to feel like you’re taking a walk on the wild side this summer, you can start by getting in on the biker chic trend. Oversized leather jackets, distressed leather boots, and distressed jeans and shorts make this trend stand out. You can also wear biker shorts with your favorite leather jacket as an ode to the edgier styles that were prevalent in the 1990s and 2000s. Black is the signature color for this trend, but you can show off your fashion sensibilities and sunny disposition with leather jackets in white, gold, or neon colors.

Black and White

Few things are more stunning in the summer than an all-white outfit. The white will stand out against sun-kissed or tanned skin and is an easy fashion choice for people with naturally darker complexions. White sundresses, short sets, and business suits are completely on trend for the summer season, and you can wear metallic jewelry to bring the entire outfit together.

Black and white outfits are also trendy for summer. Stripes and polka dots in black and white are evident in many summer pieces including rompers, sundresses, and swimsuits. This color combination looks great on all skin tones.
