As the temperature rises and no amount of Frosé or Frappuccino (or both) can keep you cool, turn to these 10 summer essentials.
The Easy Jumpsuit
This season’s jumpsuit comes in a breathable fabric and a relaxed silhouette. Pick a wide-leg or a slim crop, put on some block heels and say hello to your new one-and-done summer uniform.
The OOO Dress
A summer soiree calls for a standout dress. From whimsical florals to oversized polka dots and colorful floor-grazing maxis to little white dresses, nothing says summer quite like an OOO dress. No need to accessorize, just a hat will do.
Create a cool mixed-print outfit using stripes as a neutral; balance a statement stripe skirt with a basic white top or do the cool casual stripe-and-jean routine. As long as it’s something striped, you’re on the right track.
The Versatile Tank
Everyone should have versions of this style staple — in white to a few brights. Wear with distressed denim for dinner with friends, or polish it up with a tuxedo blazer for a big presentation.
Hardware-inspired danglers, larger than life floral studs and everything in between, the statement earring is going nowhere. The best part? It gets you desk-to-drinks ready in an instant.
Look for a not-so-short mid-rise if you are curvy or some DIY short-shorts if you like to flaunt your legs. Half-tuck a cotton tee, slip on some some slides and you’re all set.
The Wrap Dress
This classic has re-emerged as a big trend this season. Its flattering V-neck and the hourglass silhouette makes it a popular dress style among most body types. Wear to work with pumps or with fun jewelry for a weekend dinner.
The easiest way to refresh your fashion game (on or off social media) is to embrace this trend. Wear the same bright head-to-toe, color-block a couple of saturated shades or play it up with some graphic black and white, nothing is more attention-grabbing this summer.
The Vacation Bag
Bring a touch of the tropics to your daily life by introducing a vacation bag into the mix. Feel free to tote a straw bag into the office or pair a fun, beaded bucket bag with your most ‘proper’ little black dress.
The Printed Kimono
Next time you head out in your trusty white tee and denim combo, do us a favor and throw on a breezy kimono. Two things are guaranteed — compliments and that endless summer feeling.
