The Kitschy New Summer Trend Everyone's Already Wearing

·3 min read

Summer trends are definitely hitting differently this year, as each of us have been spending more time apart than we have together. With that being the case, word of mouth and taking note of fresh styles on the streets is no longer a tangible means of identifying major trends. Instead, we are turning to social media (Instagram, in particular) to help us scout out the latest and greatest. Well, this trend we're about to dive into taps into both the sartorial and social world, and that is the butterfly.

We have seen a massive rise in the popularity of the butterfly emoji as it pertains to everything from captions to Instagram filters. Just check out the fun graphic below for proof! That little blue butterfly had such an impact that it eventually was translated onto clothing, similar to how it did back in the early 2000s. This kitschy little trend has now been popping up on tank tops, jewelry, and even swimwear, and the fashion set has taken a clear liking to it.

Ahead, follow along as I walk you through some of my favorite butterfly moments on Instagram so far, in addition to a handful of my must-have butterfly-adorned products.
