Flip flops// This is another obvious staple, but a cute pair of flip flops can improve any outfit. It can be fun to splurge on a nice pair to wear for several years, but many stores sell cute, inexpensive flip-flops that will last at least an entire summer.

Patterned shorts// With warmer weather finally here, there are so many possibilities to create fun outfits, and patterned shorts are a great way to do so. When paired with a plain t-shirt, they can be a great statement piece and something to brighten up an outfit.

Stripes// Stripes are an ever-popular pattern, but have become even more trendy recently due to the growing popularity of bohemian-style, free-spirited clothing. No matter the color, they’re cute with any outfit and will remain in style for years to come.

Gingham// Another emerging trend is gingham, which is most well-known for being on Dorothy’s dress in the Wizard of Oz, but today is being styled and worn in many different colors and fashions. Gingham itself is a classic pattern, and it’s well worth buying something gingham-patterned since it will remain a timeless staple.
