With summer’s cropped pant on high fashion alert, there’s no better time to invest in the lace-up shoe. Go for a neutral if you prefer a shoe that effortlessly blends, or embrace the season’s colorful options for a standout statement. Between the ties and the shoe itself, there’s a lot to consider fit-wise; give your lace-up shoe a solid test run before purchase to discover a comfortable pair that will walk you all day long.
With the sun on high and the temp on the rise, the shift dress is the summer go-to no closet is complete without. Boxy and loose-fitting by definition, its androgynous silhouette is the epitome of cool comfort–all in one simple, slip-on piece. Dress it up with chunky platforms or keep it casual with flats–the versatility of this stand-out staple means it adapts to any occasion. To make a seasonal statement, choose a graphic print for a surefire shift toward striking style.
This skirt will keep your summer style tied up–literally. As relaxed as it is refined, the wrap skirt has remained relevant for a reason: it transitions from work to weekend–and season to season–like a breeze. This summer, counter the skirt’s fluid shape by pairing it with a fitted, off-the-shoulder shirt. Styled with a trendy top, the classic silhouette spins instant elegance without putting on airs.
It’s time to negate two rumors: it IS possible to wear shorts past your twenties, you CAN wear them to the office. The secret lies in the right silhouette, length, and fit. Seek out a polished pair in a soft, flattering drape or a classic Bermuda that provides extra length, and you’ll have a chic short forever appropriate for work–especially when styled with a fitted button-down, haute handbag, and too-cool-for-school Oxford flats.
Super light, super basic, super chic–the effortlessly classic cami is the season’s answer to flawless fashion. With its skinny straps and soft, feminine drape, this barely there layer goes with everything–and keeps you beautifully cool when summer amps the heat. Pair its fluid form with wide-legged trousers for a long, lean look with miles of style.
Perfect Pair of Sunglasses
Discovering the perfect pair of sunglasses comes down to two factors. First, your face shape. Both square and heart-shaped faces look best in round or oval frames (although bold, dark-colored frames are better for square, and thin, light-colored frames for heart). Oval-shaped faces should seek round or square frames. Round-shaped faces stand out in square or strong, angular frames, and diamond-shaped faces shine in oval or rimless frames. Secondly (and mostly), the right shades should express your personal style–they’re the kind you can throw on everyday, with everything. That’s how you know you’ve discovered the perfect pair.
