Call me crazy, but I get a great deal of satisfaction out of predicting what fashion items will sell out, so I guess it’s a good thing that I’m a fashion editor. Last month, I predicted the Zara, H&M, and Amazon items that would sell out in May, and it was fun, so I’m back with a whole new month (time flies) and a new set of retailers: Topshop, & Other Stories, and Mango. To come to my sellout conclusions, I spent more time than I care to admit scrolling through the brands’ Instagram accounts, tagged photos, hashtags, and influencers’ feeds, to find the standout pieces that are racking up likes and comments.
As you’d expect in June, Instagram is flooded with dresses, swimwear, sandals, and colorful tops—much of which is from affordable retailers. I’m of the mindset that you should spend conservatively on fun summer pieces so that you can save for more substantial fall ones. Keep scrolling to do just that.
Next up, these are the seven expiring summer trends I just removed from my closet.
