If you’ve been following along with our shopping guides, then it’s likely that there’s already an It item or two taking up space in your wardrobe. Now comes the fun part: styling these top-shopped items.
Back to quiet luxury: if you’re a fan of the fad, you’ll be happy to find that simple, yet statement styles from The Row still find a place on summer’s most wanted list. For example, The Row’s cult-classic Park tote is a seasonal star, but especially during the warm weather season. Style with a statement crochet top also from the brand and crisp white trousers from Anine Bing. Another masterfully minimal mention goes to Emme Parsons’ fisherman sandals in ivory. Styling-wise, wear the staple with pajama-style pants from Loro Piana and Aexae’s linen overshirt.
This has also been the season of the sneaker, from the celebrity-beloved Chloé embroidered Nama style to the Adidas x Wales Bonner collab. The latter pairs exceptionally well with Jason Wu’s tie-dyed slip dress and a Max Mara fishnet tote. When it comes to handbag heroes, Saint Laurent’s mini raffia bag is a fashion favorite. It pops the perfect punch when styled next to LoveShackFancy’s matching vacation set. And because ‘tis the season, we couldn’t round out summer’s hottest list without Zimmermann’s chic crochet dress and a seersucker swimsuit from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s collaboration with Hunza G.
Below, a definitive guide to styling summer’s most wanted list. Fashion tip: these It items have a limited shelf life, so shop while you still can!
Zimmermann’s Crochet Midi Dress With a Sleek Sandal
Zimmermann is a renowned resortwear label that fashion darlings everywhere know and love. And this summer, the brand’s Ginger lace-trimmed crochet dress is a seasonal star. Styling-wise, pair with sleek sandals from Loro Piana and Altuzarra’s cult-classic Water Mill tote. For a bit of festivity, throw on embellished hoop earrings from Paola Sighinolfi.
Saint Laurent’s Mini Raffia Bag With a Summertime Set
If there’s one bag to carry all season long, it’s Saint Laurent’s mini raffia bag. Sweet like summer, the hero handbag should be styled with anything and everything, but especially LoveShackFancy’s matching skirt set. Understated slides from Zara tie the entire look together.
Toteme City Sandals With a Minimalist Beach Dress
Master summer-in-the-city style thanks to this pair of minimalist slide sandals from Toteme. Other sleek staples to go alongside include Matteau’s delightful day dress, a shoulder bag also from Toteme, and drop earrings from Brilliant Earth.
Rose Inc x Hunza G Swimsuit With a Chic Cover-Up
Out of all of the capsule collections that debuted this summer, we can’t stop shopping Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s collaboration with swimwear brand Hunza G. Style the design duo’s seersucker one-piece with a chic cover-up from Max Mara and gladiator sandals from Saint Laurent. Also on our hot list? Staud’s beach bag.
The Row Park Tote With a Statement Top
No label personifies quiet luxury quite like The Row, and the brand’s Park tote in ivory is the standout of the season. For workwear or beachwear, style the must-have handbag with a crochet top also from The Row and tailored trousers from Anine Bing. Look to Éterne’s high-neck tank to layer underneath.
Adidas x Wales Bonner Sneakers With a Tie-Dyed Dress
Adidas x Wales Bonner sneakers never stay on the shelves for long, so be sure to cop this latest iteration before they inevitably sell out. Should you be so lucky, style with Jason Wu’s tie-dyed slip dress and Max Mara’s fishnet tote. Embellished hoop earrings from Bottega Veneta add yet another pop of color.
Emme Parsons Fisherman Sandals With a Pajama-Like Pant
Notably, nautical style is not only acceptable in the summer months, but it’s also encouraged. To get started, style Emme Parsons’ fisherman sandals with breezy, billowing pants from Loro Piana. Overtop, add in Aexae’s linen overshirt to the mix.
Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza Espadrilles With an Embellished Midi Dress
Elegant espadrilles are a warm weather wardrobe nonnegotiable, and this season, Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza Solar pair are right on trend. Wear with La Ligne’s embellished midi dress, Gucci’s multi-colored basket bag, and a Zimmermann bucket hat to arrive at any summer soiree in total style.
Tory Burch Raffia Sandals With a Matching Moon Bag
The raffia roundup continues with these statement-making sandals from Tory Burch. For summer nights out, style with a going-out top and maxi skirt from The Collection by Reformation and Hat Attack’s slouchy moon bag to match.
The Attico Cargo Pants With an Evening Sandal
Chic cargo pants aren’t going anywhere this summer, especially The Attico’s multi-pocket pair. While utility-inspired on the bottom, keep the rest of the summer outfit fabulously feminine with Ciao Lucia’s tie-detailed top and crystal-adorned sandals from Gianvito Rossi.

Loewe’s Raffia Tote With a Silk Maxi Dress
The buzziest beach bag of the summer is undoubtedly Loewe’s leather-trimmed raffia tote. Styling-wise, keep it seriously sleek and wear with SIR’s lace maxi dress and platform flip-flops from Tony Bianco. Khaite x Oliver Peoples sunnies are subtle yet statement- making.
Adidas’ Sambas Sneakers With a Sleek Jean
If you can get your hands on a pair Adidas’ Samba sneakers, then consider yourself extremely lucky. (Thankfully, stock has just been replenished).

Agolde’s Denim Maxi Skirt Birkenstock Clogs
Agolde’s jean maxi skirt is another It item to invest in this season. Double-the-denim and style with Khaite’s western-inspired overshirt. A bright white tee and Birkenstock clogs complete the look to casual perfection.
Chloé’s Nama Sneakers With a Day Dress
Speaking of sneakers, Chloé’s embroidered Nama style is equally covetable. Whether you’re dressing for a warm summer day in the city or packing up for a weekend getaway, wear the trendy trainers with Arch4’s tank-top dress, Toteme’s sun hat, and a woven tote from Dragon Diffusion.
Loewe’s Maximalist Maxi With a Kitten Heel
In an era defined by minimalism, a maximalist moment from the likes of Loewe is a welcome reprieve. Style the brand’s floral-printed maxi dress with kitten heels from Toteme for low-key polish. Meanwhile, Khaite’s slouchy shoulder bag and jewels from Missoma are evening-attire essentials.
Khaite’s Embellished Ballet Flats With a Tank Top
Ballet flats continue to be the only shoes that matter this season—and Khaite’s crystal-embellished pair is in a league of their own. Style with a monochromatic look from Re/Done and The Row to ensure that the fabulous footwear shines the brightest.
Bottega Veneta’s Andiamo Bag With a Wedge Sandal
Leave it to Bottega Veneta for another It bag in the making. The brand’s Andiamo tote is both timeless and right on trend. Style it with another top trending item of the season: The Attico’s bright white wedge sandals. Meanwhile, Tove’s tank dress is a fierce fashion foundation.
Jacquemus’ Le Bisou Bag With a Vacation Dress
No resort-ready look is complete without Jacquemus’ Le Bisou shoulder bag. In a festive yellow, the sunny shade matches perfectly with Mara Hoffman’s tropical-printed dress, Marni raffia slides, and a Bottega Veneta bucket hat.
Prada’s Printed Midiskirt With a Cinched Waist Blazer
This spring, the street style set confirmed that Prada’s printed midiskirt is the most prized piece to sport (and shop!) all season. For summer, style the statement skirt with an oversized blazer from Zara and an Éterne tank top. The Row’s leather belt helps create a strong silhouette with a cinched-waist effect.
Tory Burch’s Loafer-Ballet Flats With a Strong Suit
This season saw the return of the Tory Burch flat—and this time, it’s more grown up and understated than ever before. With a loafer-like style, wear the It shoe with Toteme’s beautifully beige linen suit and Fallon’s herringbone gold necklace.
