Summer has finally arrived, bringing with it a host of exciting new trends from carefree cover-ups to girly pieces like lace shorts; there are a variety of fresh looks to sport this season. Fawn Cheng, celebrity fashion stylist and beauty expert, is about to share the one simple secret to looking fabulous in the variety of trends – underwear.

No matter what you’re wearing this summer, the key to pulling it off is what you’re wearing underneath. Knowing how to pick the right undergarments for each outfit is almost as important as picking the outfit itself! This guide will walk you through several of the summer’s hottest numbers and the perfect undergarments to pair with them.

Summer Trend: The Caftan Cover-Up

I’m loving the caftan–it’s easy, light, and can be worn in multiple ways. Go from poolside to dinner date when you trade out your bathing suit for a slip or camisole. Sleek and slimming, a slip can elevate your caftan from beach cover-up to daily-wear dress.

Summer Trend: Crocheted Lace or Eyelet Shorts

Could anything be more summery or more quintessentially girly? A fun combination of feminine and kitsch, crocheted lace shorts can be pared down with a casual t-shirt for effortless style or pared with a bright colored top for a night out. While wearing shorts, you rest assured that everything stays in place, which is why the always-comfortable Hanky Panky Lace thong is the perfect match. Pairing shorts with a wearable thong can provide you extra comfort and eliminate panty lines.

Summer Trend: Peplum

This throwback shape has stormed its way back onto the fashion scene this summer. The ever-elegant peplum is great for creating a polished and curvy shape. If you don’t already have an hourglass figure, the peplum top or dress can give you this sexy illusion. Give your figure an extra bit of form with a shapewear top or SPANX Full Slip designed to flatter your curves and keep you looking tight and fit.

Summer Trend: Bandage Miniskirt

This trend is consistently coming in and out of popularity, but it’s definitely enjoying a heyday now. Miniskirts are cropping up in all sorts of exciting colors, fabrics and shapes this season. This is one look that’ll make your legs look miles long–so if you’ve got the gams to rock this trend, go for it! If you want a little extra assurance that your legs will look their best, pair this hot trend with a laser-cut thong to avoid a major fashion faux paw – visible panty line. The key is seamless stretch microfiber and “naked” construction with laser-cut edges - no elastic or trim. The result is a smooth, comfortable, flat-to-the body fit (and no visible panty lines.)
