3. Delicate Whites
To make the opposite statement of head-turning neons, try out one of this season's other hot colors--white! It's romantic, classic and chic.
4. Crop Tops
Show a little skin with a midriff-baring top.
The ultra-feminine look of pleats are a great addition to summer maxi skirts and breezy dresses.
It may be known as a semi-daring fashion statement, but it can also make for a polished, classic look. Bonus: It easily transitions from day to night.
Perfect for summer, this trend is elegant, whimsical and perfect for a slew of occasions. Stick to white lace for something totally romantic, or try black lace for something a little bit sexier.
8. Maxi Dresses
These versatile summer dresses are not only incredibly comfy and flattering on many body types, but they are easily taken from office to evening with the simple addition of a light jacket or blazer. They're also great to pack for a vacay!

Amidst the mass of girly trends, the sporty style is a great variation for something a little less feminine.
10. Floral Print Pants
Forgo your usual plain pants in favor of a pair patterned with flowers!
