We were so excited to get the FIRST taste of the summer trends by celebrity stylist Lara Backmender whose clients include—wait for it—Demi Lovato, Hayden Panetiere, Jessica Simpson, Katy Perry, Kylie Minogue, Lucy Hale, Miley Cyrus, Naomi Watts, Nina Debrev, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlet Johannson, Taylor Swift, Whitney Port and Zoey Deschanel. Seriously, I had to list them all.

What we want from summer style is easy, fresh, and versatile (mix-and-match is a must). Lara styled five outfits for attendees of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and used key, comfy pieces from Hanes to complete the outfits. And they meet all of our criteria.

 Our Summer Style Tips for 2016!

1. Throwback to 90s. The slip dress thrown over a fitted tee. Wear it this time ’round with a fedora and it’s totally cool.
2. Summer whites, from head to toe. The trend is in mixing different lengths and dressing it up with jewellery.
3 Florals. This pant is fresh and elegant in floral print. Add layered solids on top to go light on effort and heavy on style.
4. The exposed shoulder. Moms get risque this summer with either one or both shoulders bared to the breeze. If you spent the winter keeping up your workouts, here’s your chance to show off those sculpted arms.
5. Metallics. We’re so happy metallics aren’t going anywhere. You can dress them up or down. They make you feel more fancy, even if you’re going casual. Metallic skirts, pants and bags are our epic faves this summer.
From the playgroup to cocktails in the garden, these great summer style tips for 2016 will sizzle wherever you go.
