June 21 could not come any closer as our minds continue to wander in different places this summer—picnics in the sun, beach strolls, and afternoons at our favorite brunch café, plus all the dreamy dresses we get to wear as we re-enter society. We can’t help but start plotting outfits and shopping for all the pieces to add to our wardrobe.

Below, we’ve rounded up the best summer trends to watch out for this 2021. From capsule-worthy tops to classic jeans, we’ve included versatile pieces for each aesthetic.

So, if you think your closet needs a complete summer refresh, keep scrolling.

Style note: Play with different patterns and shades. For example, try a dip-dyed dress paired with summer sandals for a beach-ready look.
