From Barbie pink to mermaid waves, these 12 trends will keep you on top of your fashion game this summer.
Pink like Barbie
Although the Barbie movie won’t hit the theaters until summer 2023, the short trailer and leaked movie stills have already stirred up a perfect pink storm. Get on the pink trend with Triangl’s newly released cutout one piece and this adorable miniature backpack by FIORUCCI.

Blue Sky Inn has collaborated with Simple Gallery, the fashion-forward boutique situated in the heart of Mykono town, for an upgraded look of the brand’s popular waiter set in a limited edition print. The unisex matching set supports the ethos of inclusivity as well as sustainability, as championed by Blue Sky Inn as well as Simple Gallery. The set is exclusively available at the Simple Gallery, 30 , Kalogera Str., Mykonos 84600.
Beach Bags in Natural Tones
Go for an upgraded beach look this summer by ditching your Dior totes and opt for these ultra chic totes in natural tones: you can’t go wrong with the Micro Riviera in canvas by Marina Raphael and the Ili shoulder bag by Cult Gaia.
Cute Phone Accessories
Don’t forget to dress your phone with the cutest accessories this summer too — CASETiFY X String Ting have just dropped 13 Zodiac cases and an exclusive design Ting featuring fluffy clouds and sky-blue beads. Frankies Bikinis and Wildflower Cases are also set to drop their new collaboration on July 26, with the collection featuring exclusive prints (Malibu High and City of Angels) on a range of swimwear pieces and phone cases.
Jewel-Tone Dresses with Wrapping Details
It’s all about the details this summer, with flowy long dresses winning over micro minis. With added femininity and drama, these jewel-toned pieces with wrapping details by Maya Mariell and London’s favorite cult label Rat & Boa will have heads turning all summer long. In addition, Rat & Boa has recently furthered its sustainability footsteps and brought on a team to engaged with experts and NGOs and speak with its suppliers to become more socially and environmentally responsible.
Reimagined Pearls and Dainty Charms
Pearl jewelries and miniature, dainty charms are amongst the biggest trends this summer. Karo Koru’s Tutti Frutti collection combines classy pearls with rainbow colors, and is the perfect accessory to elevate any outfit; whilst the Daisy Charm with yellow sapphire by The Fête is simply the most adorable yet timeless piece to invest in this summer.
Monochrome, but make it trendy. The zebra-print halter neck dress by LNA oozes a sleepy, nonchalantly cool vibe while the Kali Kaftan by KALITA in the pale grey tone is a piece to keep for decades to come.
Netting and Tassels
Stand out this summer by adding interesting detail like nettings and tassels to your outfits — this light leather jacket by REINE REN features marine-themed netting made from thin ropes and the creamiest shade of olive green; and the sheer organza sleeved silk top by AKHL via Cult Mia has the most alluring and subtle shimmer, and is hand-knitted in India. As an independent fashion platform that scouts the world for hero pieces, Cult Mia curates clothes woven with stories to be owned and shared, and obsesses over sourcing, making and seam-matching.
Mermaid Waves and Press On Nails
The mermaid hair and cute nails trend is here to stay. Glamnetic’s newly launched Hello Kitty press-on nails are simple to use with great lasting power, and BaByliss’ new waver from its popular 9000 Cordless Collection is the best high performance waver with triple barrel design that precisely shape each curl with independently controlled temperatures.
Mixing Designer and High Street
Mixing up designer pieces with high street finds is not just purse-friendly, but also fun. This super chic Monika Dimova dress via Cult Mia, as seen on the stylish Rosa Crespo, will go perfectly with Frasier Sterling’s oversized FLIRT earrings.
Y2K Baby Tees and Velour Skirt
The Y2K trend is going from strength to strength. With the cutest baby tee by Made Some Souvenirs in collaboration with Madewell and the Teddy Velour Skirt by cult label Teddy Fresh, you will nail the nostalgic dress code this summer.
Stay elegantly polished and stylishly cool in the warm weather by embracing these romantic pieces in refreshing white. The Paloma lace top and skirt set by Danielle Giuzio as seen on Bella Hadid and the Feeling #18 Blouse by Ukrainian label Overthesea will elevate your looks this summer.
