It’s July already. Can you believe it? I’ve only gotten halfway through my bucket list. Summer won’t feel complete without a pool retreat, hometown visit and camping trip (ok glamping—there, I said it).

Speaking of lists, this month we are introducing The Hot List—the trends you need to beat the summer heat. We couldn’t be more excited to share our latest collection of stay-cool styles for the dog days of summer. We provide the clothes, you provide the adventure. See what’s hot for her and him.

Summer also wouldn’t be complete without a wedding or two thrown in the mix. Whether you’re looking to win best-dressed guest, make an ex jealous—or just need some event-ready style tips and tricks, we’re here to help. We compiled a wedding style guide of our favorite looks by occasion for him and her. Be a gem, and forward to a friend.

While you’re out living your best life, show us your summer style: Tag @bananarepublic and #ItsBanana (for the guys, #BRmens) on Instagram for a chance to be featured on our feed or an upcoming email. We’re always inspired to see how you style Banana. (Tip: Check out our July Look Book for some creative inspo.)

OK, I better get back to planning the rest of my summer or major FOMO will set in.

Long live summer!
