From dopamine dressing, to “Coastal Grandmother” chic, to the persisting revival of Y2K, summer style trends are running the gamut from easy, breezy, to a jolt of joy. Whichever trend is your speed, one of our editors is probably eyeing it too. Below, you’ll find some of our editors’ favorite beauty and style products that cover all of the summer trends you’re searching for, that they found on Macys.com

Coach Women's Margot Kitten-Heel Slide Sandals
There’s something about these heels that just screams “Carrie Bradshaw hits The Hamptons.” A y2k-style buckle and pink basket weave elevates this (often prissy) kitten heel to a fresh, on-trend statement. Plus, the low heel ensures comfort and versatility all summer long.
Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Stylo Eyeshadow Stick
A good eye shadow stick is the ultimate makeup hack. Yes, you could spend hours shading, sculpting, and layering your look, but who has the time? If you’re in a rush, grab this portable stick from Lancôme in any color (I love the cobalt blue), apply it to your lids, blend, and go. Bonus: this stick doubles as an eyeliner—gotta love a multi-use moment.
Skinnydip London Women's Keily Hobo Small Shoulder Bag
Butterflies will be everywhere this summer. Clothes, hair, makeup—you name it and there’s a butterfly version out there. That being said, I’m hesitant to splurge on a cute microtrend that may or may not stand the test of time. Enter: this adorable (and affordable) shoulder bag. It’s a not-so-subtle nod to the trend that will instantly bring the fun to even the most basic of outfits.

Steve Madden Charlize Double Platform Pumps
Like presumably many of you reading this, the last couple of years have left me woefully out of practice when it comes to walking in heels. So this summer, I’m looking to elevate (excuse the pun) my looks with shoes that exist at the perfect intersection of fashion and function: platforms. This pair by Steve Madden will look just as fabulous paired with a dainty sundress at brunch as they will with something sequined at night. As tempting as it is to default to black–I am a New Yorker after all–I’m besotted with the Hot Pink variation. They’re just begging to be paired with other fun, bright hues for a color block moment.
Mango Women's Printed Oversize Shirt
I don’t know if “Blouse Girl” is a thing, but if it is, let it be known that I identify as one. (Or that I’ve coined the term in this very article.) I just love the way a blouse can instantly make an outfit feel more polished–wear one slim-cut jeans, a pair of loafers, and a leather jacket and you’ve basically got my uniform. I love how this blouse by Mango taps into the current ‘60s psychedelic trend with its graphic print. And the oversized cut means it’ll give you that perfect “off-duty supermodel” look, whether you opt to wear it with pants or a mini skirt.
Versace Dylan Blue Pour Femme Eau de Parfum Spray
Fragrances are so personal; our favorites reach that status because they can immediately evoke a place, a time, or a feeling. For me, Versace’s Dylan Blue Pour Femme somehow manages to evoke a place I’ve actually never been: The Amalfi Coast, where I’m gazing at crystal clear seas, eating the most delicious pasta I’ve ever tasted, wearing the most amazing maillot, and thoroughly enjoying my Glam Era. Of course, I’m actually spritzing on this delicious fruity-floral fragrance before I’m about to get on a crowded train to commute into the city. And the fragrance gives me perfect dream fodder for the journey.
Betsey Johnson Stone Heart Drop Earrings
I adore statement earrings. They can somehow make an outfit you’ve worn 1,000 times feel brand new. This pair by Betsey Johnson is like the perfect grown-up upgrade to the clip-on earrings you’d get in little princess kits as a kid. I’m already picturing wearing them with the Steve Madden platforms from above and a little black dress. Now all I need is a tiara…

Calvin Klein Performance Women's Pickleball Exercise Dress
Practically half of my summer wardrobe is comprised of tennis dresses. It's one of the easiest, most versatile staples in my wardrobe. Add a fun claw clip, a crochet cardigan for a touch of Coastal Granddaughter, and a beaded shoulder bag for going out, or wear the dress alone with sneakers for hot girl walks and workouts. Either way, it's easy, breezy, and always comfortable (hello, built-in shorts).
Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara
Big, fluffy lashes are my signature, and Lancome's Monseiur Big is my favorite formula to get the look. Fortunately, they also have a waterproof iteration that's completely swim- and sweat-proof. It doesn't smudge all over my eyelids during my sweaty commute or flake off when I'm spending the day at the beach. Instead, I get to enjoy fluffy, amazing lashes regardless of hot it is.
Coach Soft Tabby Leather Shoulder Bag in Canyon
The micro-purse trend is cute and all, but I always have tons of stuff! This bag fits my wallet, phone, hand sanitizer, keys, sunglasses, and multiple lipstick options with room to spare. I love that the warm amber color is universal, too—I pair it with white linen for summer and then easily transition it to fall with leather pants and cashmere turtlenecks.
