3 Summer Fashion Trends You Already Own

Summer hasn't officially started, but the summer-like heat and humidity is already here.  And if you're like me, you're scrambling to figure out what to wear.  To give us some styling guidance, DailyCandy's Everywhere Editor, Tiffany Davis, gave Everything She Wants her top three must-have trends for summer 2012.  The good news is that you may already have these looks in your closet.

1) Remixed hemlines:  This season is all about taking the maxi, midi, and miniskirt hemlines and then re-mixing them to your liking. For example, we’ve had a rash of New York City days involving winter weather in the morning and sweltering temps by noon. I’ve seen tons of women knotting maxi dresses at the ankle, the knee (or even higher) for a quick style tweak on the go. And whether they’re wearing a motorcycle jacket and boots or Grecian sandals, it looks effortlessly chic.

2) Tone-on-tone color-blocking:  My colleague and I had not one – but two – conversations about Fashion Star winner Kara Laricks' tailed, color-blocked coat finished with just a little bit of leather. Gone are the days of matchy-matchy. Accessories and a killer attitude will do more to pull an outfit together this season than anything else.

3) Keep your cool: I love that there are so many options for not letting it all hang out just because it’s warm out. Airy, layer-friendly pieces can still have a cool point of view.  Masculine silhouettes and tailoring are hip for womenswear, as well as an understated, sexy Bianca Jagger-ish pants suit.
