Happy Thursday gorgeous ladies! With summer in full swing, I thought it would be the perfect time to share 5 of summer’s hottest fashion trends. I always say pick just a few trends each season to wear and of course only wear the trends that make YOU FEEL like the best, most confident version of yourself! When searching for stylish and on-trend wardrobe essentials I can always count on Nordstrom. They always seem to have what I’m looking for and I don’t have to spend an arm and a leg which is always nice! I’m featuring 2 amazing outfits for summer along with the 5 hottest summer trends of 2023 so keep scrolling to check them out! As always, feel free to add anything to your cart along the way if you love it as much as I do.
Make sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of LOOK 1 because I’m featuring an incredible pair of UNDER $100 GOLD SLIDES that I’m deeming the perfect shoe for summer!
Thank you, Nordstrom, for sponsoring this post.
SHOP LOOK 1:
TREND #1: DOPAMINE DRESSING
First on my list of the hottest summer trends of 2023 is dopamine dressing! Bright colors (aka dopamine dressing) is a huge trend this summer since your brain literally gets a dopamine hit when you wear bright colors! This coral dress by Rails represents this trend perfectly so if you’re wanting to give this trend a try, this is your ideal option. I’m wearing an XS and find it fits true to size.
FRAME DENIM JACKET:
Denim jackets are a summer staple that every wardrobe needs and the cropped style of this one by Frame is having a HUGE moment right now! I’ve been a lover of the cropped style for a while now so I am loving the trend for summer. The distressing on the hem brings just the right amount of edge as well! I’m wearing an XS in this fabulous jacket.
BETTER FOR BUDGET:
If the designer jacket above is a bit out of budget, no worries! This affordable alternative from Mavi jeans is just as stylish, with the added bonus of being on sale! With the sale discount applied it comes in just above $70 which is a fantastic deal and the bleached hem is so unique it sets it apart from your average denim jacket. Splurge or steal, I’ve got 2 fabulous options to keep you on trend this summer.
TREND #2: GOLD SHOES
Gold shoes are trending HARD this summer and I love these gold slides by Marc Fisher! The exact ones I’m wearing are sold out but no worries because I’ve linked a very similar pair, also by Marc Fisher, that are super chic, and on sale for well UNDER $100! If you’ve yet to add a metallic pair of shoes to your summer wardrobe, this is the pair for you!
SHOP LOOK 2:
TREND #3: OVER-SIZED BLAZERS:
No.3 on my list of the hottest summer trends of 2023 is oversized blazers, also referred to as boyfriend blazers. I love how chic and effortless an oversized blazer can make an outfit look and this one from Nordstrom is the perfect option IMO. The neutral shade is perfect: cool undertones with minimal yellow that will go with almost anything and for the price it really can’t be beat. I’m wearing an XS in this fabulously on-trend blazer.
TREND #4: MINI HEM LINES
This next trend might not be for everyone and that’s okay! Mini hemlines are a hotly debated topic amongst the over 40 crowd, with some claiming that anyone over 40 shouldn’t even consider wearing a mini skirt. If you’ve followed me for anything length of time I ALWAYS say: if you feel like the best, most confident version of yourself in it, WEAR IT! and that mindset applies here too. I’m wearing a size 24 in this mini denim skirt that makes me feel AMAZING when I’m wearing it!
TREND #5: PLATFORMS
Last but not least, trend No.5 on my list of the hottest summer trends of 2023 is platform heels! I am absolutely obsessed with these Sam Edelman platforms and apparently so are all of you since there aren’t many sizes left. Since there are almost sold out I’ll link a few similar pairs that I love here and here. Both are fully stocked and totally chic, so no matter what you choose you’ll be set for summer!
SIMILAR PLATFORMS FULLY STOCKED:
If you happen to miss out on the Sam Edelman platforms everyone is raging about, these are fantastic alternatives! I love the braided straps and the neutral raffia material makes them very easy to incorporate into a look. Are you a fan of platforms? I personally love them because they give all the height to my petite frame without the discomfort of a heel with a similar height. Let me know in the comments if platforms are a yay or nay for you!
