When seasonal trends pop up it can be hard to stay on top of the latest styles. So Hoda and Jenna welcomed TODAY style contributor Bobbie Thomas last month to share her favorite fashion must-haves for summer.
She shared the hottest finds, from trendy sunglasses that double as readers to a travel-friendly hat that will keep you cool in the heat. She also found chic face masks that come with matching headbands and breathable clothing.
While we're loving these outfits for summer, you can also find pieces that are perfect for year-round wear. Read on to check out the style essentials you need right now.

Thomas loves these readers because they have blue light blocking technology and an anti-glare coating. The brand is also affordable and a favorite among celebrities like J. Lo.
The same brand makes readers that double as sunglasses so you won't have to worry about switching your glasses. They're a summer essential and come in five different lens colors.
While you always can opt for a basic face mask to wear while you run errands, you don't have to sacrifice style. Thomas loves that this brand makes face mask bundles that feature a mask and matching headband. Each piece is made with stretch cotton and can be worn separately or together.
Mask chains are the newest trend this summer and one influencer, Lara Eurdolian of Pretty Connected, launched her own line. This silver chain strap will keep your mask close so you won't forget it during your summer outing.
