1. A Pair Of Patchwork Denim

Denim will never go out of style. But, that doesn't mean that denim itself can't change with the seasons. From a "mom" fit to rips at the knees, jeans are always shifting gears, and now you'll want to set your sights on patchwork denim. You can DIY a pair or snag this pair of patchwork denim ($45, Etsy).

2. A Croissant Ring

Jewelry can really take any outfit to the next level, especially if you accessorize your look with this croissant ring ($75, Mejuri). It fits in with the other chunky details you may have in your closet, like a comfy, oversized sweatshirt and a bulky pair of boots.

3. A Smock Dress

Smock dresses have serious cottagecore vibes. And if that's the lifestyle you're currently manifesting, then you need to try out this trend. What makes this kind of dress unique is its sleeves, which are typically puffed at the shoulder. Smock dresses ($38, PrettyLittleThing) are usually pretty flowy and can look great styled with either a pair of white sneakers or chunky heels.

4. A Sweater Vest

The sweater vest is an ideal clothing item, because it allows you to show off a sweet blouse you have tucked away. Hop on this trend ASAP with this sweater vest ($45, Storets) that has an argyle design and warm color palette.

5. A Pack Of Hair Claws

If you're looking at the hair claw trend and thinking, "Hey, that reminds me of Rachel Green from Friends," you're not wrong. It's certainly a trend from the '90s that's making its way back on the scene. With this pack of hair clips ($24, Anthropologie) on hand, you can style your hair in a French twist or in a half-up, half-down look.

6. A Pair Of Converse Sneakers

Vice President-elect Kamala Harris put Converse sneakers on the map while on the campaign trail. Now, they're all over Instagram, as influencers are rocking their own. You can shop for this pair of sneakers ($85, Converse) in a variety of colors.

7. A Mini Shoulder Bag

The mini shoulder bag may be the cutest trend on Instagram at the moment. It's the perfect accessory for an outfit that's been thrifted or an at-home photo shoot, since it encourages you to show off your side profile. Plus, it can have beautiful detais like a gold chain, thick strape, or croc leather finish like this stylish mini shoulder bag ($119, & Other Stories).

8. A Printed, Long-Sleeve Top

Sheer, printed, long-sleeved tops prove that color is what this season of fashion is all about. These tops, which can look luxe even when paired with denim, come in many designs. This printed long-sleeve top, in particular, ($27, CapricornsStudios) is a gem for summer lovers, and can be seen on Claire Most (@claire_most) on Instagram.

9. A Pair Of Colorful Trousers

If you follow Rubi (@poseandrepeat) on Instagram, then you've likely been blessed with a few adorable pairs of trousers on the feed. Colorful trousers ($29, ASOS) with a bit of a flare are very in, and can be styled with sneakers, chunky boots, and any top. How you style them depends on what look you're going for: an adorable business #OOTD or WFH 'fit.

10. A Pair Of Chunky Boots

Even if you're taking a photo shoot at home, you should still think about completing your look with a pair of trendy boots. Right now, you can likely find chunky boots ($159, Princess Polly) everywhere. They feature a thick heel and usually come up around your ankle.

Try them on with a tennis skirt, smock dress, or sweater vest, and see how you can rock this trend in your own way for the 'gram.
