Heating Up: 6 Summer Trends Under $50

From colorblocked tops to gold stacked rings, here are the six trends you can incorporate into your wardrobe – all for under $50. Try one, or all six – just work them into what you already have hanging in your closet. Plus, every item can be worn practically year-round (hello, aviators and stacked rings). Go ahead – shop with abandon. Your wardrobe will thank you. Trust us.

The Summer Six

1. Retro-Inspired: Embrace your inner pin-up style with a high-waisted bathing suit bottom.

2. Colorblocking: An oversized sweater and shorts is a match made in heaven on breezy summer nights. Bonus: you can carry this piece into fall. Just add jeans and boots.

3. Neon: Of course you could go all out with a sheath dress, but all you need is a tiny splash of something bright to pull off the trend. Pair with a white tee and denim.

4. Aviators: Throw on a pair with absolutely anything. They’ll shade you from the sun – and look good doing it. Keep them on hand all year.

5. Cork: Lightweight and utterly comfy, these metallic flats with cork soles inject a little summer style into every step.

6. Stacked Rings: Mix and match or wear them all at once. These pieces work both day and night. Enough said.
