WHY NOT TRY: TIE-DYE
Deeply rooted in both the mind-altering ’70s and ’90s grunge—two trends currently experiencing an uptick—the beloved DIY pattern has gotten a major fashion upgrade with shrewdly paired color combinations and luxe styling. Pair against neutrals for contrast, or blow the look out head to toe.
WHY NOT TRY: CAMP SHIRT
The very antithesis to its stiff, preppy cousin the SSBD (short sleeve button-down), this iteration focuses on a more relaxed fit and playful prints for a mind-set that works just as well at the office as it does poolside paired with a margarita. Dress it up by layering a neutral T-shirt underneath, offset with polished loafers, or go full vacation mode with sunglasses and shorts.
WHY NOT TRY: FULL-ON NEON
If bold color typically gives you pause, push the trend to the point when it makes its strongest statement: a head-to-toe set. Think about it: Why stick an arbitrary pop into your look when the full-force version has clear attention-seeking purpose? Whether you reach for exuberant accessories or standard extras, ensure the pairings provide a visual reprieve.
