Summer is finally here! Now it’s time to make the most of the sunny weather with some of today’s hottest styles! Make a stylish statement with the biggest summer trends of 2018. From dresses with fringe to breezy tops with ruffled sleeves, Scout & Molly’s Boutique has a summer style for every shopper. We have all the summer clothes you need to make a stylish impact, no matter where you’re going! Here are some of our favorite 2018 summer trends with expert tips for incorporating them into your wardrobe.

Tie-Front Shirts

Tie-Front ShirtsAdd a little bit of boho flair to your summer style with a tie-front shirt, like this perfect white top from Movint. Tie-front shirts are super hot right now, and you can work them into all kinds of summer looks. Try wearing a blouse like this with your favorite high-waisted jeans, a patterned mini or maxi skirt, or a pair of linen shorts. We love tie-front shirts at Scout & Molly’s Boutique because they’re a perfect youthful look for fashionistas of all ages. It also might just be the easiest way to dress up that classic jeans and tee look! Elevate the outfit with a pair of heels or wedges, or keep it casual with chic sneakers or sandals.

Ruffle Sleeves

Ruffle SleevesNothing adds feminine flair like a ruffled sleeve! We’re in love with this BB Dakota summer dress that’s covered in polka dots — a pattern that’s one of the biggest summer trends this year. The key to making a dress, sweater, or blouse with ruffled sleeves work is to keep the rest of your summer look relatively simple. Minimalist jewelry, muted shoes, and neutral accessories will let those ruffles steal the spotlight for your outfit. If you’re worried about looking too frilly, choose sleeves that have a single ruffle or stick with darker colors for a more sophisticated feel.


Fringe outfitOne summer trend we’ll never get tired of is fringe! Whether it’s a colorful statement necklace, a simple sweater, or a metallic clutch, you can never go wrong with a tassel detail. Fringe is a great way to stand out, whether you want a casual summer look for the beach or something dressier for date night. Tassel earrings have been in style for the last few seasons, so now is the perfect time to take your fringe obsession to the next level by incorporating it into other parts of your closet.

Step-Up Hem Pants & Jeans

If you feel like you’re stuck in a denim rut, mix things up with a step-up hem. This kind of finish leaves the hem of the pants a little shorter in the front than in the back, and these styles usually have a raw edge. It’s a great casual summer look, and this style of jeans and pants pairs fabulously with all types of sandals and open-toe shoes. Whether it’s a pair of classic white jeans, high-waisted denim, or fun patterned pants, keep your eyes peeled for step-up hems at Scout & Molly’s this season.
