But one accessory seems to top the style charts:  chokers. They have recently become trendier than ever. Female summer styles will be laid-back and relaxed.

For boys, light wash denim pieces and sports inspired looks have become very popular. Printed tees, especially camo, and tonal outfits are also expected to make a splash this summer.

Currently, guys are choosing to cling to their the casual, mellow styles.

Freshman Olivia Minnich, with a style she described as “casual, relaxed, comfortable and earthy,” mentioned that personalizing your style is a way to make it trendy and most suitable for you.

In regards to her favorite trends, Minnich said, “My favorites would definitely be the embroidery that I have been seeing. I love this because it fits my style perfectly, it’s so earthy and cute, yet it doesn’t make an article of clothing uncomfortable.”

Minnich also favored the bleached and distressed T-shirts, as well as crochet bikinis, which are all very prominent trends displayed on social media.

It’s clear the upcoming trends aim to uphold the comfortable, confident and carefree vibes that has everyone excited for summer!
