My Summer Trend Picks

by Jennie Stierwalt in , , ,

If you're looking for a fresh summer wardrobe or a trendy piece to spice up your closet, then look no further, I've got you covered! I've been keeping my eyes peeled for what's hot and I have my heart set on all things retro, including white lace, denim on denim, and fringe that will be sure to bring out your inner Stevie Nicks.


I'm a summer girl at heart so naturally this is my favorite time of year and it's officially here! Retro swim suits have cycled back in style and I couldn't be happier.

Check out my summer swim picks that are sure to turn some heads. From crochet, high-waisted bikinis and one pieces, you're sure to find the one that suits you.

I love this trend because it makes your bikini feel special again. Long gone are nylon swimsuits! Say hello to texture and details you probably haven't seen before, unless you were rocking this stuff in the 60's and 70's! 

We Are Handsome Ananas Zip Swimsuit

We Are Handsome Ananas Zip Swimsuit

This swimsuit has so much going on, from the on-point pineapple print one piece to the detailed 80's zipper, this swimsuit is sure to turn some heads! 

This suit is for all you classy ladies out there! It's feminine, high rise, and has a romantic scallop edge that we are seeing everywhere. This is also a great suit for a bustier girl since it has that super sporty top! 

KORE SWIM Bahia One Piece

The bustier style is back and we are even seeing it in swimwear! This part lingerie, part swimsuit has a sex appeal some bikinis don't even offer with it's mesh and under-wire that alludes to all things happening after the beach! Oooh la la!



Lace is one of the most timeless, feminine, and easy to wear fabrics out there. It looks beautiful on almost everyone and lucky for us, it's everywhere this Summer! The Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Chloé runway show had us all envisioning ourselves wearing her perfect lace dresses while lounging on a beach with a Mai Tai in hand (ok well maybe that's just me). Wait not longer, here are a few of my favorite go-to lace pieces of 2015.

Le Salty Label X REVOLVE Mini Dress

Le Salty Label X REVOLVE Mini Dress

This dress, recently released on Revolve Clothing, is the best knock-off Chloe dress I've seen yet. Don't worry, my pre-order is already placed! 

Stone_Cold_Fox X REVOLVE Marrakech Dress

Stone_Cold_Fox X REVOLVE Marrakech Dress

This lace dress has it all! It's sexy fabric, off-the-shoulder neckline, and see through details make this the ultimate summer dress! Don't forget to wear your commando undies with this one! 

This dress from Zara is in the shape of a tee-shirt dress, with the fabric of a goddess, a winning combination for comfort and style!

Cleobella, one of my favorite brands, does Balinese Lace effortlessly. This piece is perfect for the girl on the run who still wants to stay on trend. High kicks are welcome here!



True vintage or vintage inspired, whichever way you go, you won't go wrong this summer! Denim swag is back once again and I'm loving it! Mix it with your lovely lace or pair it with suede and fringe. Denim has been our country's staple since 1873. So why reinvent the wheel if you don't have to? Check out my picks below.

Just yes. These overalls scream 1973! They are stretchy, comfy, and adorable. Wear them with your favorite platform sandal and rose colored glasses. 

The flare begins higher up on the leg so they look more like a wide-leg than a flare for those of us who have bigger thighs (I'm speaking from experience)! Love the drama of these this season.

Cut-out, culotte, and denim...I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad! These are perfect in shape and price. 

I chose this dress because it's basically the mother-load of denim dresses this Summer. It's lace up details and true-blue hue have me swooning for this in my dream closet! Thanks Gucci for the lust worthy design.



Fringe is popping up like roses. It's on everything from tops, skirts, and dresses, to totes, clutches, and shoes! Here are a few that are on my wish list.

The perfect midi-length, this dress is easy to wear, it's a cut that almost every woman looks flattered in, and the fringe doesn't over-power the lady behind the dress. Need I say more?

Somedays Lovin Stevie Crochet Dress

Somedays Lovin Stevie Crochet Dress

This 'lil thing is a fabulous combination of crochet, pastels, and fringe. Toss it on during the day with a pair of knee high gladiator sandals, or wear it over your bikini at the beach. 

Suede + Fringe is an iconic look from eras past that has made it's way back into mainstream this Season! Pair this with denim for the ultra retro look or wear it with a long maxi skirt to make it more chic. 

This bag is everything! The neutral colors make the statement fringe less intense, and the clean lines make this easy to pair with all your basics! Try it with a black slinky dress, or a pair of skinnies and a crip white shirt! 

Remember, a trend doesn't have to dictate what you wear... Rather, a trend is an opportunity for you to purchase something that is "you" but not available all the time! Choose your trends wisely so that they are pieces you will treasure forever. 

Happy Summer 2015 Everyone!
