If you want to keep everyone stylish during your family photo shoot, consider outfitting them in these fashion trends. These pieces are perfect for a variety of outdoor locations.

For girls, long dresses in neutral tones are a cute option. Matching patterns also look great! Avoid short dresses, as they can blow upward in the wind.

Summer Fashion Trends

Bright Colors

With summer coming up, bright colors from Janie & Jack are sure to take the spotlight. Personal stylist Victoria Havlik says bright hues will dominate this season as we lean into “dopamine dressing.” Think hot pink, bold red, cobalt blue, and orange.

Color-blocking will also be a critical look. Pair a bright shirt with coordinating shorts or pants for an on-trend outfit. Or, try a monochromatic look with different shades of the same color (tone overtone).

The season’s light colors — from vivid bright orange to relaxed buttermilk yellow to soft sage green — will freshen up any wardrobe. And don’t forget to complete your colorful outfit with a pair of wear-with-anything recycled slides and a kitschy-in-a-good-way hat. That way, you can rock the trend all summer long.


Even though they aren’t the most fashionable footwear, these clunky foam clogs will remain a summer staple. A favorite among nurses, young children, and gardeners, Crocs grew into an unlikely fashion icon after musician Questlove wore a pair of gold-colored Crocs to the 93rd Annual Academy Awards in 2021. Their popularity soared, and collaborations with celebrities and high-fashion runways followed.

The versatility of the style allows parents and kids to find a pair that fits their tastes. Neutral colors like black and white can work with any outfit, while vibrant flip-flops and slides will brighten any ensemble. Adding a colorful set of Jibbitz is another excellent way to personalize your Crocs this season. The clogs also complement the new woven fabric shorts trend, a must-have for anyone who wants to keep cool.

Identical Sets

There’s something cute about matching outfits for the whole family. Whether on vacation or taking summer photos, identical sets can perfectly showcase your family spirit.

Embrace the trend of matching dresses or skirts and tops for all ages. These matching outfits can be great for summer because they are lightweight and comfortable. Plus, they look cute and are easy to style.

Although the ’90s crop top may have seen its last days, a romantic iteration is perfect for summer. Wear this silhouette open over a swimsuit or half-tucked into shorts for the ultimate chillout outfit.

Woven Fabric Shorts

In the summer, shorts are more than just a casual style staple. They’re how you keep your excellent commuting to work or running errands, so they must balance comfort and style with ease of movement and features like pockets and polished hems.

Woven fabrics are the answer to this dilemma. Avoid chino shorts that feel too stiff or pleated shorts that read as too formal, but look for flat-front woven styles like Alex Mill’s Flat Front Shorts in a vintage wash.

Another famous weave is seersucker, which pairs collegiate prep with a southern gentleman and seamlessly blends casual and smart casual. Consider Flint and Tinder’s 365 Shorts in either seven or 9-inch inseam in seersucker to get a comfortable, versatile option for outdoor summer events.


Whether you’re a devout minimalist or a maximalist, prints are a pivotal component of every wardrobe. Patterned styles are popping everywhere, from tailored trousers and skirts to lounge-worthy woven fabric shorts, from florals to stripes and plaid.

For those looking to break from the classic denim double-down trend, splurge on a coordinating set of pants and blouses in neutral tones. Identical sets are a fun way to bring the whole family together for summer activities like picnics and beach trips.

Printed mommy and me dresses are an adorable choice for family photos. The citrus-colored floral patterns on these girls’ dresses complement Mom and Dad’s light, airy white tops.
