2019 has given us a trip down memory lane with several '90s fashion trends. First, we got to relive our childhood with those fun scrunchies and hair accessories we used to rock as kids. The resurgence of platforms also brought us joy, especially when Steve Madden released a shoe collection inspired by the footwear style. Now, smocked dresses are the latest trend giving us pure '90s nostalgia. While we first saw the scrunched up fabric in off-the-shoulder tops, smock dresses are now helping us release our inner child. Whether you're looking for a long dress for those chillier summer nights or want to show some skin with a leg-baring piece, these are the hottest smocked dresses of the season. Scroll through to see our top picks.
Perhaps one of the most difficult challenges of the summertime is trying to stay cool when it's sweltering outside. Unless you're indoors getting a blast of A/C, for the most part you're trying to avoid those annoying side effects of hot weather, such as sweaty pits, thigh chafing, and sticky skin. For those outdoorsy gals who can't stand the thought of melting into your clothes, we tracked down 10 trendy casual dresses that'll help you beat the heat while looking chic. Whether you're out at a tiki bar with some friends or taking a stroll in the park, there's no sacrificing style for comfort here with these top picks.
Love them or hate them, the tiny sunglasses trend that swept the fashion nation back in 2018 is officially on the outs. In their departure emerges a vast number of bigger and bolder frames that are taking 2019 by storm. It might not be warm enough to bust out your summer jumpsuits and beach bags quite yet, but fortunately sunglasses are appropriate year round.
Start thinking of the potential outfits that will inevitably lead to Insta-feed fashion fame, as you take a look at our thoroughly researched finds. Scroll down for our assembly of the 12 top sunglasses trends of 2019 — or what I like to call "the big, the bold, and the blinged out."
When the temps start to cool, and you're no longer sweating the second you step out the door, you might need a jacket as you transition to chillier nights. Fall isn't here yet, but it's better to go into the season prepared.
A faux leather jacket adds a touch of effortless cool to any outfit, and a faux leather jacket is even better for animals — and your wallet. Layer it over dresses and skirts now, sweaters and jeans later. From traditional moto jackets to a modern trench, these are the best faux leather jackets that are chic AF and animal friendly.
Summer is so close we can practically smell the sunscreen. We're already snatching up swimsuits for swimming at the pool and boating on the lake, and beach bags for carrying our beach day necessities. And that got us thinking about the rest of our waterside ensemble to pull the whole look together: a beach cover-up!
Crochet, kimono, wide-leg pants, or wrapped sarongs, we gathered up 12 beach cover-ups in an array of styles that will look amazing on and off the shore. Scroll down for the winning pieces we pulled and how to wear them with or without a swimsuit!
