Pinterest Is Obsessed With Bralettes and These Surprising Summer Fashion Trends
Instagram is a killer place to gather of-the-moment outfit inspiration, but let’s be real — when it comes to all things inspo, Pinterest takes the cake. Wondering how to style spring’s hottest trends? Layer like a pro? Or make tried-and-true duds feel so RN? Pinterest has hundreds of ideas to help you pull together a getup that will land your #OOTD game in the Instababe hall of fame. Beyond that, it’s a pretty prime tool for predicting what’s about to blow up on the sartorial scene. We tapped the site to see what’s trending now, and the results were surprising. Scroll on for the five fashion essentials that should definitely be on your radar for summer 2017.
Searches for bodysuits were up nearly 390 percent — that’s HUGE, people — meaning the one-piece wonder will likely be popping up in #OOTD pics everywhere this season. For a seriously of-the-moment ensemble, team a strappy style alongside summer 2017’s must-have skirt — a ruffle-trimmed asymmetric midi — for a playful look that will take you from boutique hopping to a candlelit dinner at the vineyard in flawless fashion.
H&M V-Neck Bodysuit ($15), Zara Striped Skirt With Frill ($50), Chan Luu Gold-Plated, Quartz and Swarovski Crystal Choker ($205), tenoverten 007 Hudson Nailpolish ($18), Charles David Ella Heel ($119) + Sophie Anderson Cinto Rainbow Stripe Straw Box Bag ($229)
This summer’s “It” color? According to Pinterest it could be — wait for it — mustard yellow! Searches for outfits featuring the eye-catching color are up more than 270 percent YoY. With the vibrant hue channeling the new season’s good vibes, we’re more than down with that. Rock the tone in true It-girl fashion by tossing on this oversized blazer with embellished denim, square-toed mules, and a sassy pair of drop earrings for casual Friday or a gig at your favorite downtown spot.

Bralettes and beach weather go hand-in-hand, which just might be why searches for these midriff-bearing tops are up 250 percent. When you’re not rockin’ a high-neck style with cutoffs and ankle boots for festival fun, team this cute cutout style with high-waisted trousers, embroidered slides, and a bright silk hair scarf for a sophisticated look that’s ready for sipping rosé by the sea.

While you were busy getting your sandal lineup up to speed, menswear-inspired Oxfords started taking Pinterest by storm. This silvery set feels on-brand for summer shenanigans, but are polished enough to rock at the office too. Pop ‘em on with a bold and bright shirt dress, souped-up hoops, and a crossbody bag FTW.
& Other Stories Cotton Shirt Dress ($95), Loeffler Randall Willa Flat ($250), J.Crew Flower Clock Hoop Earrings ($48), Kozha Numbers Large Ket Bucket Bag ($295), Lancôme Matte Shaker High Pigment Liquid Lipstick in Kiss Me Chérie ($22) + Ann Klein Round Ceramic Bracelet Watch ($110)
If there was any question that off-the-shoulder tops were the essential of the season, Pinterest proved the silhouette’s staying power, pointing to a surge in searches to the tune of 650 percent YoY. Even out those tan lines by slipping into this bow-trimmed number, distressed white denim, and a handful of saturated accessories for an afternoon of fun in the sun.
