We're still a few weeks away from summer but you might have already noticed some summer fashion trends already on the streets.

From billowy bell sleeves to ruffled tiered skirts and raw hem denim, this season's trends can be a little a little tricky. Anna De Souza, eBay Style Contributor breaks down the trends and translates them for real life.

TREND: Statement Sleeves and Shoulders
From flounced bell sleeves to smocked, tiered cuffs and artful off-the-shoulder tops - this season it's all about this voluminous, statement style. Pair this artsy, architectural piece so it reads street style cool with skinny jeans and embroidered pumps - another big trend of the season.

TREND: Embroidered Denim
Embroidered denim is in this season. From delicate floral accents tapering down the side seams to feminine touches around the pockets, this trend is elevating the child-like patchwork of yesteryear.

TREND: Ruffled Skirts
Forget those scratchy tulle prom dresses, ruffles got a high fashion makeover and now mixes high-low hemlines with purposeful geometric silhouettes - and guess what, it's super wearable for summer. Mix with a loose cami and sleek pumps to elevate the look. We saw it on the Michael Kors, Mulberry and Rodarte runways.

TRENDING: Sheer Shifts
Sheer and mesh romantic shifts can be tricky to wear. Take this daring look from night to daytime appropriate. This 90s-inspired trend can extend through several seasons by pairing it with jeans! Look for slim-fit denim without many belt loops, pockets and sans pleats - so there aren't any lumps and bumps.
