Overwhelmed by encyclopedia-length trend reports? Fingers tired from clicking through slideshows of 50+ examples of swimsuit styles and skirt lengths? We hear you hissing, “This is cutting into my aperitivo hour.”
In the second installment of our summer trend guide, brought to you in collaboration with Macy’s, we’re putting forth our most condensed version yet: just three key buzzwords you need to know, outfit examples (as worn by members of #MacysStyleCrew) so you can get an idea of how to style each piece, and links to shop. Think of it as the fashion version of the study guides you once used to cram the night before your lit exams. Ahead, see the most essential summer 2019 fashion, no filler.

We’re loathe to use “pop of color” — especially when the most natural accompaniment to a juicy orange blazer is a second bright hue, seen here in a pair of sunflower-yellow pumps. As an exclamation point at the end of your look, non-neutral footwear is the mark of the advanced dresser. So this summer, try getting dressed from the ground up or, for real pros, incorporating color-wheel neighbors — or opposites — into your outfits.
