With summer quickly approaching in just a few short months, many have begun to shop for their ultimate summer wardrobe. From crop tops to trendy sunglasses and sundresses, there is a wide variety of summer fashion trends to be on the lookout for.

One popular and versatile item that has been on the shopping list for many this summer is the Boho Bandeau from Natural Life, a cute shop selling boho chic clothing and accessories. The bandeau has a wide variety of uses; it can be worn as a headband, headscarf or neck scarf while also doubling as a cute tube top that is perfect for the hot days of summer.

The bandeau comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns from rainbow to floral to patchwork. The majority of the bandeaus are being sold for around $14 and can be found online at Natural Life, as well as in several in person stores including Franchescas.

The colorful and tropical patterns are perfect for any summer adventure whether it be a trip to the beach, a hike or simply reading a book outside.

Another fun trend to look out for this summer are funky, colorful and trendy sunglasses. Whether it be a unique shape or color, trendy sunglasses have been on the rise in recent years.

A blue, yellow, orange or red tint in a pair of sunglasses elevates the pair from being basic to cool. These fun glasses are perfect for a day at the beach or pool. Adding a pair of cool sunglasses onto an outfit ties everything together and elevates the outfit.
