2. Tropical

You don’t need to go to Aruba or Jamaica this summer to have island fever. Fill your wardrobe with essentials like palm trees, Hawaiian flowers and tropical prints. These busy designs can be dressed with more neutral pieces like a thin blazer or open toe sandals.

3. Checkmate

As seen in Oscar de la Renta‘s new collection, checkered print, or gingham, is the new casual. Store your stripes and plaid for autumn to make room for this new go to item. The light-weight cloth is perfect for picnics with its white and colorful checkered print. Plus, the design looks like it came right out of a Audrey Hepburn film.

4. Neon

Shine bright like a highlighter. Whether you’re going to the beach, a festival or just going out with friends, add flair to your outfit with neon. If you’re weary of wearing neon clothing, try neon face paint. This accessory can be applied in a fading stroke technique or go multicolored in a confetti pattern throughout the eyes and the bridge of your nose. Also listening to Neon Indian’s “Deadbeat Summer” can act as your painting muse.
