Summer is flowy tops, shorts, skirts, and dresses season, yet we can often struggle to keep up with trending summer fashion. There are tons of summer outfit inspiration posts on social media but it's helpful to break down the essential summer clothing pieces into categories: tops, bottoms, and dresses.

In this series, I will begin by recommending my top 5 summer top styles based on what I've seen all over Pinterest and Instagram. All posts will have affiliate links attached where you can purchase each item.

There are 5 top trending summer top styles this season! In each category, some of the trending features of each style are listed.

1. Button-Down Tanks and Blouses

Tanks with buttons, especially larger buttons are a great twist on the classic tank top. Tanks can be styled with almost any type of bottom and they let your body breathe in the heat.

What's trending:


Button-up Shirt

White Blouse

Racerback Tank

2. White Linen Blouses

White linen blouses are essential to any wardrobe. They are perfect for the office on hot summer days or as casual tops when combined with mom jeans and sunglasses. Linen is an airy fabric, which although creasy, is easy to style and tuck into any trousers.

What's trending:

  • pure linen

  • white

  • beige / off-white

  • button-down style

  • tucked into mom jeans and denim shorts


White Cotton Shirt

3. Crochet Tops and Crop Tops

Knit and crochet tops are this summer's must-have. See-thru and crop styles are in all the stores. Try to let the top stand out by choosing simple accessories and straw bags. They are perfect as loungewear or casual pieces.

  • black cross v-neck

  • white/off-white

  • cropped

4. Floral and Tropical Print Shirts

Florals never go out of style but choosing a timeless print is essential. Try to choose florals on neutral base colors because they are more flattering. Floral off-the-shoulder crop tops are popular for the summer season.

What's trending:

  • cropped floral tees

  • floral ruffled tops

  • tropical/botanical prints

  • bold colors

  • wear with linen trousers and high-waisted jeans


5. Logo Branded T-shirts

Logo tees and branded tees, like the iconic Gucci T-shirts, have been trending for the last couple of summers, and investing in a brand you love is important. These tees can be dressed up with a blazer or dressed down with jeans and sandals.

These are especially useful now in this time of lockdowns and stay at home workdays. They are casual yet still give you that 'fashion' feeling.

What's trending:

  • Calvin Klein

  • Levi's Tees
