We’re halfway through summer, but don’t worry, there’s still over a month of warm weather to get dressed. And if you could use some tips on the season’s biggest trends, Brooklyn-based Amazon Stylist Brittani is here to help you with her four favorite summer styles you can buy from Amazon’s house brand, The Drop.
Brittani’s main trends include on-trend blazers, tennis-inspired fashion, matching sets and one-piece outfits. Here’s what you need to know about each summer fashion category and how to stock up on styles from The Drop for under $70.
Whether you’re wearing shorts and a tee or a flowy dress, a structured blazer will instantly elevate your look. As Brittani said, “Blazers have the power to dress up a casual look in seconds.”
You can’t go wrong with the Blake Long Blazer, which is available in seven colors and sizes XXS to 5X. It has a long notched collar, a single front button, two flap pockets and a back vent. To channel your inner “cool girl,” take note of Brittani and roll up the sleeves, wear it with bike shorts and a tank top, and finish the look with a shoulder bag and colorful sunglasses.

Tennis skirts have been trending for a while now, and they’ll keep you cool while looking cute on hot summer days.
With the chic look of a pleated skirt and the comfort of spandex shorts, this mini skirt with built-in shorts underneath is an athleisure lover’s dream. It comes in navy and white and comes in sizes XXS to 5X. To fully commit to the tenniscore theme, wear this skirt with a polo bodysuit and matching zipped jacket. For a more casual look, pair it with a simple tank top or t-shirt. Either way, the skirt makes it easier to exercise or just “climb the stairs,” Brittani said.

One of the easiest ways to get into the summer spirit is with a matching set in bright colors. “When my schedule gets busy, matching sets allow me to create stylish looks with minimal effort,” Brittani wrote, and we totally agree.
Thanks to this mesh tank top and fitted miniskirt in a groovy yellow pattern, you can really embody the sun. Both pieces are made from a blend of polyester, acrylic, nylon and wool, and come in The Drop’s typical size range of XXS to 5X. Brittani styles the pieces with a bright orange bag and flat sandalsbut you can also wear them separately with other items in your wardrobe.

One Piece Looks
Unique rompers make dressing up easy. All you need is a pair of shoes and a handbag, and you’re good to go.
This short sleeve terry cloth romper combines the style of a collared shirt with the comfort of a swimsuit cover-up. Available in sizes XXS to 5X and in two pastel colors, the one-piece swimsuit features functional buttons down the front and a removable fabric waistband. Additionally, Brittani said there was “a 70s vibe that’s all the rage right now.” Wear it with white sneakers, a tote bag and retro-inspired sunglasses for a summer day.
