If You Already Have Nike Socks, Anklets, and Sweatshorts, Buy These Trends Next

Allyson Payer

Since each season lasts for months on end, having more than one "wave" of trends is a given. For example, summer hasn't even officially started yet, but we've all been wearing summer trends like Nike socks, anklets, and sweatshorts for weeks now. If you're bored with your wardrobe for the upcoming season before it even starts, you're not alone, and we're here with some ideas for what trends to buy next.

The early summer trends were mostly geared toward comfortable stay-at-home wardrobes, and while that's still the case for many of the second-wave trends, you'll also find ones that are perfect for venturing out in the world a little more, as things start to gradually open back up. 

Below, you'll find sandals, dresses, accessories, and loungewear that'll freshen up your summer wardrobe in an instant. See how some of Instagram's chicest ladies are wearing the trends and shop them for yourself below.
