Belted Swimsuit

It wouldn't be a summer trends roundup without one swim style that's ever-present—and for 2018, that's the belted suit. As seen on Instagram favorites like model Paloma Elsesser, a well-accessorized one-piece or bikini serves a whole lot of look on the sandbar, so get ready to see even more of it as people take off on Summer Fridays.

Breezy White Dress

A LWD is a solid summer staple not only because it's easy-breezy, but also because it's a sort of blank canvas that you can embellish to your heart's desire with bright accessories. And one with rounded shoulders—like this one worn by Sincerely Tommy's Kai Avent-deLeon (which, alas, has sold out)—adds a little extra drama to your seasonal wardrobe.

Silky Midi Skirt

A few years ago, it may have been unfathomable that you'd want to wear anything other than short shorts during the summer months—but oh, how things have changed: Not only have the inseams gotten longer, but there are plenty of incredibly stylish alternatives. The frontrunner for most Instagrammed is Réalisation Par's sold-out midi skirt, as seen on style stars like AnneLaure Mais—luckily, there are plenty of silky alternatives on the market that'll allow you to achieve the look.

Strappy Sandals

The extra effort to strap these on is worth it: The season's best footwear is a tad more involved than your slides, but these sandals make a big statement with little embellishment. Exhibit A: Even when styled with an oversize suit, Maria Bernard's toe-loop shoes stand out.

Smocked Top

The '90s called, and they're here for the comeback of the smocked top—are you? It's a trend that's already been endorsed by model Ali Tate Cutler and plenty of fashion brands for summer, so you might as well get on the nostalgia train now.

Checked Trousers

Swap your spring gingham dresses for summer checked trousers, à la Alyssa Coscarelli. They're the perfect companion to your white T-shirts, light button-downs, and yes, smocked tops.
