MAKE THE MOST OF SUMMER WITH EFFORTLESS OUTFITS
When you’re busy chauffeuring kids from the pool to play dates, you need summer outfits that can keep up. That’s why comfy wardrobe staples—like tees and shorts are essential. And with so many prints, and compliment-worthy details to choose from (like ruffled sleeves and strappy necklines), they’re sure to quickly become your top go-to. Pair them with distressed denim shorts, sandals, and don’t forget a lightweight cardi or kimono in case the temps drop or AC cranks up.
If your summer bucket list is filled with laidback adventures, choose an easy outfit to bring along. Start by adding a little personality to your style with a playful graphic or tank. Pair with distressed denim shorts, strappy slides, statement jewelry pieces and plans to run to the farmers market or meet up with friends. You’ll quickly see, the options to make it your own are endless and isn’t that what this season’s all about.
TAKE NEW SUMMER DRESSES OUT FOR A SPIN
The hottest silhouette of summer is yours. Show off your curves in a soft tank dress with strappy detailing that goes from 9 to 5 like a boss. Kick up your look with a floral kimono that will have your co-workers buzzing. Later, bare your sun-kissed shoulders for drinks on the patio after work or dinner with your SO or gal pals.
For a truly easy breezy outfit, choose a one-and-done summer dress. Finding your perfect style is all about comfort: how hot is it and how much skin do you want to show? A short sundress in a vivid hue with a longer, patterned kimono on top is an easy way to create a visual balance. Finish your look with strappy sandals in a neutral shade, a cute clutch that doubles as a crossbody bag, and a long, shining necklace. Now if only finalizing your plans were that easy.
Summer is “go” time — the perfect season to pack in the moments. But what about packing your tote for the weekend? No worries! Lightweight summer dresses are made to travel. A floral, off-the-shoulder maxi dress easily transitions from sightseeing to dinner with an ocean view. Make a quick change from AM sandals and a hat to PM strappy wedges and a fun clutch and your day is as stress-free as you dreamed it would be.
