Recap of the 10 Hottest Summer Trends and Where to Get Them

This summer brought some pretty cool trends, and we're not quite ready to let them go. From accessories to jewelry, Her Campus has the ultimate list of what's hot and how to find them so we can enjoy the fun of summer for a little bit longer.

1. Flash Tattoos

What they are: “Jewelry inspired temporary tattoos” that use metallic colors and funky designs to take them to the next level. Beyonce loves them.

Where to buy them: On the flashtat website.

2. The Lokai Bracelet

What it is: From their site: “The bracelet is infused with elements sourced from the highest and lowest points on Earth. The white ball, carrying water from Mt. Everest, and the black ball, holding mud from the Dead Sea, exist on opposite ends. A string of clear beads link the two, signifying that throughout life’s circular journey, your path is your own.”

Where to buy one: Check out their website for one of these wearable, spiritual bracelets. 

3. Pearl Choker

What it is: A small pearl on leather cord. Perfect for an everyday necklace that is cute but won't get in the way, even when you're exercising. Plus, they're super affordable.

Where to buy one: On the Jewelerry website, or on Etsy.

4. Tattoo Chokers

What it is: A plastic tattoo style choker. You probably had one when you were 12 and refused to take it off until you had to go to a formal event and your mom made you, and now they're back and stronger than ever.

Where to buy one: Etsy has a great option.

5. Fitbit

What it is: A wristband that tracks your activity and sleep, helping to promote a healthy lifestyle without you having to manually enter everything you do.

Where to buy one: You can pick from a variety of different colors on the Fitbit website.

6. Bright and pastel colored hair

What it is: Die your hair an awesome color to add some flare to your wardrobe! It's the new hair feather (except let's not talk about that one). 

Where to buy it: Your local hair salon, Or check out Bleach London for awesome ideas, dies, and other dying necessities!

7. Loose shorts

What it is: Comfy but fun shorts that are great for going out or having a casual day. They're more comfortable than tight jean cut-offs, plus they're less likely to ride up. To make them more Fall friendly, throw one a pair of tights underneath.

Where to buy them: Brandy Melville has a great selection, as does Forever21.

8. Slip-on Sandals

What they are: A new take on the classic adidas slide. They're basically fancy Birkenstocks.
