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
