I think one thing we can all agree on is that it is HOT, HOT, HOTTTT this summer. No fear though, I’m here to keep you up-to-date on this season’s coolest trends. With the last of our summer days dwindling down by the second, make sure to jump on these trends before it’s too late.
Circle/Pretty Beach Towels
If you’ve been on Instagram lately or any social media platform for that matter, then you’ve probably seen some pretty sweet beach towels. The $10 beach towel you get from Target is no longer the way to go. Beach towels come in all sorts of patterns, sizes and shapes these days and despite the fact that most of these beauties cost $50+ a piece, they’re amazing! Towels in a circle shape? Yes! Why these are any more comfortable or purposeful, I’m really not sure, but they look cool in an Insta pic, right? Not to mention, have you heard of Sand Cloud Towels? For one, they’re so cute and they can double as a towel and a blanket, but also a portion of their profits helps save marine life. Basically, yes, you need one.
Large Pool Floats in the Shape of Animals or Food
Yet another Insta trend gone viral. Pool days are not complete without some sort of flamingo, swan, unicorn, doughnut or pizza shaped pool float. And the shapes and colors don’t stop there. Plain pool floats are a thing of the past; pool days are meant to be more fun! Oh hey, TSwift… sorry to post a pic of you and Calvin in light of his recent #meantweets.
Unique Bathing Suits
Remember when everyone wore simple triangle bikini tops and bottoms? Well, now there are so many more options that are a ton of fun! My current favorite trend is probably the high neck bathing suit tops. They come in lots of styles whether they’re patterned, crocheted or have ties up the middle; they’re so cute!
High-waisted bathing suits bottoms also made an appearance again this summer. Not only are these super cute, but they’re also really comfortable.
Then, who can miss all of the cute one-pieces out this summer?! And not just sexy monokinis, but actual one-piece bathing suits! I remember being a teenager and thinking how God-awful one-pieces were and how I would never wear one again in my life and now I absolutely adore them!
Plus, there are endless possibilities with off the shoulder sleeves, fringy almost tankini looking tops (yeah, I know! When is the last time you heard the phrase tankini?), etc.
Chrissy Teigen’s Cookbook, Cravings
First off, who doesn’t love Chrissy Teigen? She’s quite possibly one of the cutest celebs out there right now. If you follow her at all, you’ll know she’s often sharing recipes she loves and now we have access to them all! So if you haven’t picked up her cookbook yet, you should, because she gives awesome recipes for all the food you want to eat!
Oh, side note, did anyone hear that now Kim K is wanting to put out her own cookbook after seeing how successful Chrissy has been? I love you Kim, but do you even cook for yourself?
I hesitated for a LONG time before adding this one to the list because I don’t think I’m ever going to be a Pokemon lover. I never played it as a child and I don’t intend to start now, BUT that’s doesn’t mean it isn’t one of this season’s hottest trends. For Pokemon lovers out there, they can now bring the game of Pokemon to life via their phone and it seems just about everyone, but me, is doing it. I think more than anything we should be excited about this type of technology and what that means for other virtual experiences and interactivity coming to our phones soon. For those of you who do love Pokemon, play on, we’re excited for you!
So there you have it, this summer’s hottest trends. There isn’t much time left, so soak up every bit of sun you can before Fall creeps up on us.
C’est la vie,
