Summer Style Simplified

Look One: Multiple Personalities
Pick up a new piece that incorporates multiple trends. This top anchors the outfit by flashing the color of the season (coral), along with a graphic chevron stripe and a nod to the nautical, working three trends at once. It’s nice enough to dress up with heels and accessories, yet simple enough to pair with flats and white denim or shorts.

Look Two: "T" Time
Invest in a great graphic tee. Though some find it hard to spend big money on a T-shirt, it’s a great investment in summer months. It immediately upgrades any outfit—whether paired with denim, shorts, or a skirt—so you look put together and sophisticated even when an occasion calls only for a simple T-shirt.

Look Three: One and Done
Grab a great summer dress and wear it all season long! Dresses are light and easy and serve as an all-in-one solution during hot summer months. This printed dress is elegant enough to be dressed up for an occasion but can be dressed down for everyday wear. Here, we paired it with chunkier shoes and accessories—simply add an elegant shoe and fine jewelry to make a statement at a summer wedding.
