From Barbiecore to the Eras Tour, this summer’s been jam-packed with pop cultural style inspiration — and it’s far from over.

But which trends are truly taking over the season? To cut through the noise, we consulting a few fashion pros and celebrity stylists to narrow it down to six key summer looks worth your shopping dollars.

From “quiet luxury” to crochet, get to know the fashion moments that matter most below.

The peplum trend is (literally and figuratively) flaring up again. And while the style might prompt fashion flashbacks to the early 2010s, costume designer June Ambrose has her sights set on a more modern take.

“Remember when the peplum was a thing? Now you see it being redefined, and it’s really nice,” the fashion pro, who’s worked on several of the most famous looks in hip-hop music video history, tells Page Six Style.

What’s more, the frilly fad can be incredibly flattering; adds Ambrose, “Especially if you don’t have a waist — if you’re built really square — it gives you a shape.”

Stars like Beyoncé — whose “Renaissance” tour includes a sparkling equine set piece  — aren’t horsing around when it comes to Western wear-inspired fashion for summer.

It’s a trend Ambrose can get behind, as she tells us she’s been “really into cowboy hats lately.”

“That’s been the go-to this season: adding something Western to something very urban,” she explains. “I love taking things out of context … I’d do an oversized T-shirt and wide-leg jeans with a cowboy hat. So chic.”

From Gwyneth Paltrow’s viral ski trial to Sofia Richie’s wedding, talk of quiet luxury has been anything but quiet as of late — but as celebrity stylist Mary Fellowes sees it, the trend’s been here all along.

“Thank God what they call ‘quiet luxury’ is back — long may it be, as it never went away,” the style pro — who’s worked with the likes of Olivia Coleman, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice — tells us of the trend, marked by sophisticated basics, solid (often neutral) hues and seriously high price tags.

Weaving crocheted pieces into your wardrobe is another “winner” in Fellowes’ book, as she raves about mixing the “boldness of silhouette and texture” with “the breeziness of cotton or lace.”

“Once you are at an age where showing off too much skin isn’t viable, crochet is your friend,” she quips.

Inspired by the sheer number of see-through looks as of late? While celebrities often dare to bare (almost) all, stylist JenniLee — who’s worked with the likes of Lana Condor, Hayley Williams and Marisol Nichols over the years — assures us “there’s a lot of ways to do it without it being completely over the top.”

“I think that [the trend offers] a feeling of freedom,” she says. “It’s sexy, and it can be modest at the same time because of the ability to layer sheers.”

Blame this one on summer’s stacked concert lineup.

“There are a lot of ’90s-era rock bands that have music coming out or are going on tour,” JenniLee says of why we’re seeing a “skew towards rock” when it comes to style.

“It’s so easy to dress up or dress down; you could do a minimalist dress with a blazer or a flannel depending on the direction you’re going in,” she adds.
