Check out these fashion trends that celebrities are loving this season.

Many fashion brands have already started teasing their upcoming Fall/Winter collections, but that doesn't mean you have to put away your vacation fashions just yet!

With nine weeks left of summer, now is the best time to book that trip, lock in that dinner date, and find every reason you can to show off your bright and colorful wardrobe. In need of a bit of style inspiration? Check out these fashion trends that you should definitely try before the arrival of the new season.

  • Low-Rise Bottoms

    Zendaya arrives to the 2021 CFDA Fashion Awards at The Pool Restaurant on November 10, 2021 in New York City.

    Love it or hate it, low-rise bottoms are making an epic comeback. The go-to fad from the early 2000s has recently resurfaced and people have mixed reactions about reliving the trend that leaves very little to the imagination. 

    How To Ace The Look: If you want to flaunt your curves in a not-so-subtle way, opt for hip-hugging skirts, jeans, or shorts that just barely cover your love handles. When styled correctly, the trend can look great with everything from crop tops to t-shirts. 

  • Flirty Floral Prints

    Host Taraji P. Henson speaks onstage during the 2022 BET Awards at Microsoft Theater on June 26, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

    Summer is all about flirtatious floral designs! The options are unlimited with this classic trend, which is available to shop in dresses, skirts, tops, jumpsuits, shorts, and even accessories. 

    How To Ace The Trend: Combine any flirty floral print look with strappy sandals and oversized shades—it's that simple! 

  • 'Coastal Grandmother' Aesthetic

    'Coastal Grandmother' Aesthetic

    The Coastal Grandmother Aesthetic is this year's most relaxed trend. According to Jules Buono, it is inspired by carefree, middle-aged women who live on oceanfront estates along the coast, hence the name. The aesthetic involves wearing clothes that are comfortable and stylish, making it perfect for anyone who wants to dress up without feeling overdressed.

    This trend is perfect for days spent at the beach or weekend exploring a new town. And, best of all, it can be easily achieved with clothes you probably already have in your closet.

    How To Ace The Trend: To achieve this look, start with a basic outfit of straight-leg jeans, a crisp white T-shirt, and an oversized linen button-down. Complete the vibe with vintage-inspired accessories like a straw hat, straw tote,  a pair of cat-eye sunglasses, and a pair of comfortable sandals.

  • Eye-Catching Neon

    Kandi Burruss attends House Of BET on June 23, 2022 in Los Angeles, California.

    Neon colors are making a comeback, which isn’t surprising since bright colors are always in style during the summer months. This year, neon is bolder than ever with fashion stylists encouraging people to wear the colorful trend from head-to-toe.

    How To Ace The Trend: To add a pop of color to any outfit, turn to neon accessories. If you are feeling a bit more daring, try a monochromatic neon ensemble, which consists of wearing the same color from head-to-toe. You’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd!

  • Barbiecore

    Ciara attends the amfAR Gala Cannes 2022 at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc on May 26, 2022 in Cap d'Antibes, France.

    If you're looking for a fun and unique fashion trend to try before the summer is over, look no further than Barbiecore. Simply put, this trend is all about embracing your inner Barbie doll and is perfect for anyone who wants to have some fun with their fashion choices.

    How To Ace The Trend: To nail the Barbiecore look, start by wearing a pretty pink dress or skirt. Then, add some fun accessories like statement jewelry and sunglasses. Finish off the look with a pair of pink heels or Barbie-themed shoes.

  • Fashionable Mules

    Mules are usually open-toed shoes that don't have a back or a strap around the heel, making them a great summer sandal. 

    How To Ace The Trend: Because mules are so versatile, you can wear mules with jeans and a tee for a casual look, or you can dress them up with a skirt or dress for a more formal occasion.
