Alright, guys, we did it. We made it through some pretty sketchy weather, and here we are, firmly in summer 2017 and all the sunshine and happiness that comes along with it.
Seeing as it is finally summer weather, it's also finally time for us to put away the jackets and bask in the heat/glorious fashion trends that come with the summertime! I know, I know, I'm excited, too.
Have no clue what to wear this summer, though? Well, no worries at all. I've been doing some digging to figure out exactly what I need to be wearing this summer, and I've decided to help all of you guys out, too. Spoiler alert: summer 2017 is shaping up to look retro AF.

Floppy straw hats are perfect for the beach, chilling at Park Lafontaine, or doing pretty much any and everything.
Honestly, baseball caps have never gone out of style - and chances are, they never will. Everything from snapbacks to the classic, small-brimmed hat will continue to be huge in 2017, so you can protect yourself from the sun in style.
Because communicating through your headwear is super Instagrammable, guys.

There's a reason why these classic shades will never go out of style: they're cool, stunning, understated, and tend to fit everyone.
Yes, your friend owns a pair of these. Yes, your neighbour owns a pair of these. Yes, I own a pair of these. But it doesn't matter how popular they are: they look good on everyone, and they're a super smart sunglasses investment.
There's something super vintage about these shades, and it goes super well with the whole retro vibe overtaking summer 2017.

I'm not even sorry.
The whole off the shoulder look is going to be huge in 2017. Why stop at a shirt or a dress, though, when you can take it one step further and own a gorgeous off the shoulder romper?
Just like wearing a dress, but 100% more freeing.
For Shoes, click "Next"
Alright, guys, think back. Way back. Decades back. Is there ever a time you can remember when platform shoes weren't in? Didn't think so. They're set to make a huge comeback in 2017, appearing on heels, sandals, sneakers, and pretty much any shoe you could think of.
In the words of my personal idol, Nicki Minaj, "pink Ferragamo sliders on deck."
Alright, maybe it's me, but I feel like the huge mesh/knit sneaker trend lately is a testament to Kanye West's influence on the fashion world. Disagree with me. Go ahead. I don't even care.
Seriously, though, you can find mesh sneakers pretty much everywhere, for both men and women, and in pretty much any brand; so you just know they're going to hit summer 2017 super hard.
