Ahh, summer. Regardless of whether your plans involve an internship in a bustling city, selecting up hours as a lifeguard, or just relaxing with your besties on the beach, this season’s trends are wearable sufficient to suit any summer time life-style.
Thankfully, our preferred quick style shops are on leading of it! It is so effortless (and so inexpensive!) to be trendy this summer time. To illustrate, I’ve put together 4 outfits – each and every focused on a hot summer trend – all beneath $ 100 every single!
Looking Darling in Peplum – $ 97.93
Product Data: Top – Modcloth, Shoes – Zara, Shorts – H&M, Clutch – ASOS
If your style taste is a bit on the sweet side, a peplum leading or dress is the excellent addition into your wardrobe rotation. Probabilities are, you currently have the best pairings in your closet!
Fast ideas on wearing peplum:
- Peplum adds volume up top, so stick with some thing tight on the bottom. Try a peplum leading with a pencil skirt, a nice pair of shorts, or fitted jeans.
- Peplums are very feminine – so embrace the girly vibe! Unless you have a genuinely bold sense of style, we don’t recommend wearing peplum with boyfriend jeans and converse sneaks.

Casual & Chic in an Asymmetrical Hemline – $ 94.58
Product Data: Dress – Modcloth, Bag – Forever 21, Shoes – Target, Necklace – Forever 21
An asymmetrical hemline can take a standard dress from fine to fabulous. In the sample outfit above, a simple grey dress is transformed from a basic piece into some thing trendy and distinctive.
Speedy tips on wearing an asymmetrical hemline:
- Liking this trend but feeling self-concious about wearing it? Try a shirt that is longer in the back than in the front. Or opt for a dress with a little (feel six inches, not two feet) difference in length from hem to hem.
- A casual, flowy “mullet” hem dress would be excellent as a beach cover-up or glammed up day dress.

Trendy in Printed Pants – $ 99.22
Item Details: Jacket - Old Navy, Top - MANGO, Pants - Forever 21, Shoes - Target, Necklace – Forever 21
Let me preface this by saying that I am not a proponent of wearing sweatpants or pajamas outside. They have a spot in the dorm and at property, but they appear sloppy elsewhere. So imagine my surprise when I spotted girls wearing printed silky pants (that really do appear like pajama pants!) in chic and trendy ways… and loved the look.
Quick guidelines on wearing printed pants:
- Flowy palazzo pants are fashion-forward for summer when worn with a blazer or cute jacket.
- Wear tall shoes with a pair of printed, straight-leg pants to elongate your legs like crazy. I mean, we are speaking model-esque!
- Don’t go overboard on the colors or patterns. Preserve the other pieces in your outfit straightforward and solid.

Bright in Neon – $ 78.70
Product Info: Best – Forever 21, Pants – H&M, Scarf – Urban Outfitters, Shoes – H&M
It really should come as no shock that we love neon here at College Style. Neon is arguably the hottest trend this season, and 1 we can’t put on often enough. In reality, I’m wearing a flourescent (and possibly glow-in-the-dark) yellow tee as I sort this…
Fast tips on wearing neon:
- Do not be scared of rocking several neon pieces in one outfit! Just stick to a couple and pair them with neutrals. Our preferred pairings typically contain a colorful tee and contrasting lips or fingernails, neon flats and a bright belt, or bold pants and an alternating color of scarf (like in the sample outfit above), but experiment and discover your own go-to favorites!
- Do not worry, wearing neon will not make you appear like you are attending an ’80s party. But if you’re uneasy, attempt it out by means of accessories like neon yellow or green fingernail polish, a scarf, a belt, earrings, or a huge necklace.
- Remember: Neon can constantly be toned down with neutrals.
