38 Trendy Updates I'm Shopping to Wear With My Basics This Summer

Trendy shopping for summer

If, like me, all you bought over the course of the past 12 months were basics, and you're ready to spice things up a bit, now is the perfect time to do so. Temperatures are rising and vaccinations are coming, and people's fashion-buying habits as of late are reflecting this. Loungewear purchases are decreasing as people are buying more things to wear out in the world.

Since you probably have enough basics, I put together a handy list of 38 fun, trendy summer items to wear with all of those white T-shirts, jeans, slip skirts, shorts, button-downs, and simple sneakers. These pieces are guaranteed to bring color, personality, and compliments to your summer outfits, and there are options for every budget. Accessories, cool tops, miniskirts, shoes, and more abound, so let's get to it before the exceptionally fun pieces sell out, shall we?

I'm not surprised this is about to sell out.

I could plan a vacation around this perfect hat.

You can't go wrong with vegan leather.

Found my new favorite black sandals.

I'm daydreaming about fun summer occasions to wear this to.

Yes, I'm biased, but these sandals are beautiful (and available at Nordstrom).

I'm getting subtle cottagecore vibes.

A retro miniskirt is very summer 2021.

So these are kind of a basic too, but I like them, and they have trendy elements, so in the roundup they go.

People will stop you in the streets to ask where you got these—trust me.

Subtly trendy but trendy nonetheless.

Summertime is new-sunglasses time.

These look quite comfortable for heels.

I'd reach for this again and again when I don't know what to wear.

Not your average beach hat, and that's why I love it.

It's still all about built-in ankle shoes for me.

The slits (and the color) make these so cool.

Such a special pair of Birkenstocks.

No awkwardly long button-downs here.
