We tend to overuse our denim cutoffs and tank tops once summer hits, but they're definitely not our only options. Not that there's anything wrong with them, of course—it's just good to break out of the mold and dress up once in a while.
Here are four summery trends seen on our favorite celebs:
1. Off-shoulder tops
There's really no stopping off-shoulder necklines, especially in the summer. We particularly love those with "detached" sleeves and abbreviated lengths for an ultra-flirty spin. Here, Kathryn Bernardo balances her sky blue crop top with elongating high-waist trousers.
But if you prefer skirts more than pants, that's fine, too! Check out Ylona Garcia's party-ready outfit consisting of a bright yellow top and a ruffled button-down midi. So festive!
2. Floral prints
Regardless of what The Devil Wears Prada's Miranda Priestly says, florals for hot-weather months are just too damn appropriate. You can go the traditional girly route in a sweet flowing dress, like what Kim Chiu did here.
Or if that's not your cup of tea, look to Erich Gonzales for a skin-baring OOTD that incorporates the summery print. No point hiding your abs if you worked hard for them! ;)
3. Cropped pants
Jeans and trousers get the bitin treatment this season, all the better to let some breeze in. We love Bea Alonzo's casual date-ready outfit—fringed ankle-grazing jeans are all the rage these days, as are chunky mules.
A dressier alternative? Kick flare trousers for a night out on the dance floor. Try yours with a sleek black bodysuit and platform sandals, similar to Lovi Poe's on-set outfit in Havana, Cuba.
4. All white
The color black will always have a place in our closets, but when temperatures rise, swap it out for cooler, fresher white. Heading to the office? Heart Evangelista's approach to suit dressing gets the summer treatment with lightweight separates in the non-color.
Once cocktail hour hits, slip on a curve-hugging midi dress. When done in white lace a la Anne Curtis, it also works for daytime affairs, which we're sure you'll be having plenty of. It is the perfect time to celebrate by the beach!
