Rather than a certain trend, this is an entire aesthetic that embodies the lifestyle and fashion of a character from a Nancy Meyers movie. From capsule wardrobe staples to flowy garments, like linen pants, perfect for a seaside lifestyle, this fashion trend includes oversized shirt dresses, summer fabrics, and pinstripe prints.

For bottoms, Tiktok is noting that the rise is getting lower, and the fit is becoming baggier. Parachute pants and cargo pants are the most popular styles for summer, and they range in fit from super baggy to slightly more fitted for a more wearable look. What’s more—Baggy pants are going to work straight into fall and will be a perfect transitional piece for your wardrobe. If they aren’t quite your cup of tea, opt for a relaxed style like the Calamint Jeans.
Going strapless for summer is practical, especially when the temps are rising to 90 degrees before lunchtime approaches. Tube tops and strapless dresses are particularly trendy. Cargos and a simple tube top are a perfect summer match. Corsets are another strapless top option perfect for a ton of occasions and summer activities.
Fabrics like cotton, linen, and chambray are classics for summer, but Tiktok is packing a little extra flair with the addition of plissé fabrics. I have seen plissé skirts, two-piece sets, and oversized shirts worn for a wide array of occasions. Style it down for a beach day, or style it up for a night out.
Orange and Pink Color Combos
The most popular summer color combo by far is orange and pink. Tiktok users have been sporting orange for a while, and it has recently been adapted more widely by celebrities. Pink is another popular color for summer, and they are even better when worn together for a retro pairing that’s both vibrant and fun.
It’s true that the trends on Tiktok rise and fall quickly, but these are the trends you can expect to get you through the thick of the summer heat and most likely straight into fall if you use some pieces to transition. You can count on Tiktok to reveal the trends, and Mood will continue providing the goods to help you get in on the fun while lending a little inspiration along the way.
