With only exam week remaining and the beautiful Chicago weather we’ve been having, summer is so close we could almost taste it! Although we will all definitely be in our most comfortable attire throughout finals week, there are definitely some gorgeous summer trends to look forward to!

High-Low dresses are great because they can be worn both formally and casually, and the flowy material is fun and flirty! Keep it simple and slip on some flip-flops or pair it with heels and a belt for a more put together look.

Statement Sunglasses are fun summer accessories, and you don’t need to spend a fortune to rock this trend! Colored specs or unique shaped frames add some originality to your look and keep your eyes protected from harmful UV rays.

Bright Bold Prints are always a summer favorite, but this year stripes are the print of choice! Vibrant prints are sure to make a statement, and the bolder, the better!

Ankle Straps are everywhere! Sandals, heels and wedges are all about the strap this summer. Ankle strap flats are probably the newest and most original trend, and I personally can’t wait to get my feet in a pair!

Peek-a-boo tops and dresses have the ability to be flirty or sexy depending on the rest of your ensemble. Perfect for a date or a party, this trend is sure to turn heads.
