School’s out, the summer heat is in. Stand out in the crowd this summer with the latest fashion trends. Here are the summer fashion trends that will keep you looking hot while it is hot outside:

1. Bustiers- This lingerie-inspired top is coming out for the summer. Pair it with a high-waisted skirt or shorts for a sweet, feminine look. At night, wear it with some skinny jeans for a daring look.

2.Crochet dresses- Looking like your grandma crocheted it herself, this unique trend will get you noticed. This feminine look also comes in vests, shirts, skirts and shorts. Match it with browns and light pinks for a sweet ,earthy and natural look.

3.Rompers- The romper suit was once popular in the ‘50s for children’s playwear and women’s beach ensembles because it is ideal for movement and comfort. This top and shorts combination is great for the lazy days of summer.

4.Maxi skirts- Maxi skirts and maxi dresses are a modest trend springing into women’s wardrobes everywhere. Wear it with flat, strappy sandals for a bohemian look. This long and flowing style will bring you elegance in a breeze.

5.High-waisted shorts- Fashion really does repeat itself. This trend originated in the ‘40s and ‘50s, and was seen in ‘80s and ‘90s fashion before making a reappearance this year. These shorts will keep you looking slender in the heat. You can dress them up, wear them casually or pair them with any shirt, tank top or blouse.

6.Tube top dresses- Skin tight dresses are in this summer. These dresses will make your curves look grand. Use the tube top dress at the pool as a simple swim suit cover-up or accessorize with a belt and heels for a hot look at night.

7.Crop tops- The ‘80s are back with these shirts that show off some stomach. These tops are even easy to make yourself. Just cut out the neckline and cut off the bottom of an old shirt and voilà! You have a crop top; just make sure to find someone with a sewing machine to hem the edges so they don’t fray in the wash.

8.White- White is a very dominant color in summer fashion: you can find white tops, capris, shorts, dresses and skirts. This bright shade will match with anything in your closet and, of course, make your summer tan look golden.

9.Cut-off shorts- I certainly could not forget about men’s fashion. This unisex trend always comes back for the summer and is even easy to do yourself. Just cut some old winter jeans, khakis, or cords into the length of your liking.

10.Printed tanks- This summer is going to be hot, so men, show off those shoulders. Tank tops with patterns, stripes or color blocks are popping up in men’s clothing departments everywhere.
