Now that summer is in full swing, it's time for endless fun in the sun.

Whether you're headed to the beach over the next few months or just need to dress for the hot weather to take care of daily errands, there are tons of fun trends to try this season. As part of the TODAY Style Squad, I'm sharing some of my favorite summer trends and tips on how to wear them.

White culottes

White is a must-have color in your wardrobe during the summer. And white culottes are the perfect way to incorporate it — they look great on everyone and can be dressed up or down for any occasion. It's an easy way to look put-together in a flash.

Striped dress

Stripes are such a summer staple. This season, update your usual striped T-shirts or tank tops with a lightweight striped dress. This updated version of stripes can be found everywhere in store at the moment. Not only will you look stylish in this trend but also classic.

Gingham print

Gingham is the pattern of the summer. From the classic black-and-white check to a multitude of other color combinations, you will see this pattern in every clothing store. Combine the busy print with a bright, solid hue to really make it pop.
