There's never a dull day at a consignment store-- always something new to see! As we begin to take in Summer items on consignment, we're noticing some trends. These pieces are more than just trends... they could become your summer staples!

Cutoff Shorts Summer Trends 2016

#1 Cutoffs! Whether they're high-waisted, distressed, or patterned, we've been getting in so many shorts! Cutoffs are perfect to pair with any top for a casual, sometimes beachy, look. We love getting denim from Free People, Vince, Some Days Lovin', and Current Elliot.

Florals Summer Trend 2016

#2 Florals! It's looking like a flower bouquet on our dress racks right now! So many floral dresses keep us inspired. Perfect for Brunch or a day out with the girls. We have every type of floral you can imagine!

High Neckline Top Summer Trends 2016

#3 High Necklines! A higher neckline lets you show off a little bit of skin elsewhere- shoulders, back cutouts, or a slit skirt. High necklines are flattering on most body types, even the bustier type can pull of this look!

Dee Keller Sky Blue Heels Summer Trend 2016

#4 Sky Blue! We all have heard that "Serenity" is the color of the year from Pantone, but we never thought it would be this wearable!  We love pairing a sky blue piece with nude or blush tones, or even another pop of color like yellow or coral!

Joie Platform Wedges Summer Trends 2016

#5 Platforms! A little height never hurt anybody! From cork, to straw, to wood, we get in platform shoes of all kinds. Some of our favorites are from Elaine Turner, Joie, DVF, and Christian Louboutin.

Beaded Dress Summer Trends 2016

#6 Beading Detail! In Louisiana we use the word "Lagniappe" for a little something extra. That's exactly what beading can do to a piece of clothing. It adds just the right little something to take it up a notch and catch your eye.


We hope you enjoy these top 6 Summer trends that we've been seeing come through the doors at Swap! If you're interested in consigning you can find all of the info about our process here.
