Heating Up: 6 Summer Trends Under $50

From colorblocked tops to gold stacked rings, here are the six trends you can incorporate into your wardrobe – all for under $50. Try one, or all six – just work them into what you already have hanging in your closet. Plus, every item can be worn practically year-round (hello, aviators and stacked rings). Go ahead – shop with abandon. Your wardrobe will thank you. Trust us.

The Summer Six

1. Retro-Inspired: Embrace your inner pin-up style with a high-waisted bathing suit bottom.

2. Colorblocking: An oversized sweater and shorts is a match made in heaven on breezy summer nights. Bonus: you can carry this piece into fall. Just add jeans and boots.

3. Neon: Of course you could go all out with a sheath dress, but all you need is a tiny splash of something bright to pull off the trend. Pair with a white tee and denim.

4. Aviators: Throw on a pair with absolutely anything. They’ll shade you from the sun – and look good doing it. Keep them on hand all year.

5. Cork: Lightweight and utterly comfy, these metallic flats with cork soles inject a little summer style into every step.

6. Stacked Rings: Mix and match or wear them all at once. These pieces work both day and night. Enough said.

Chitter Chatter

From summer midriffs to parody Twitter feeds, here's what we're buzzing about this week


Understand: Just how much skin is okay to show with this summer midriff guide. (No rock-solid abs required.)

Get Excited: Rebel Wilson is getting her own ABC show, Super Fun Night, this fall. We already have our popcorn ready.

Know: We can totally laugh at ourselves. This parody Twitter account just gained one more follower.

Check Out: Duane Reade’s window displays next time you’re in NYC. Our main squeeze Simon Doonan will be lending his creative eye (usually reserved for Barneys’ fab displays) to design them.
