Classic White Blouse

If there’s one thing your summer wardrobe needs, it’s an easy-to-style white blouse.

More elevated than the basic white t-shirt, a lightweight white blouse can be dressed up or down.

When choosing your perfect white blouse, the difference is in the details.

With so many trends to choose from, it can be overwhelming to decide which works for you.

When in doubt, a puffy sleeve is a soft and subtle way to play into the season’s trend while still feeling comfortable and chic.

Pair it with a pair of well-fitting denim for a classic look.

Mix & Matching Sets

The beauty of the matching set is just how versatile it can be.

You can always wear the pieces together to create an effortlessly chic outfit — or, you can pair the separate pieces with closet staples (a basic white t-shirt or a pair of jeans!) for various occasions.

For summer, a lightweight linen or satin set is the perfect way to always have something to wear for any occasion.

While basic colors are functional, try choosing a patterned set as a fun way to bring color into your wardrobe.

Happy mixing and matching!

Viva Magenta

Embrace Pantone’s Color of the Year this summer by adding bright pink to your wardrobe.

This bold, empowering color is popping up everywhere, from the runways to the streets of Soho.

While you can opt for a full magenta dress, there are more subtle ways to ease into the maximalist trend.

Start small, with a delicate lace cami in magenta layered under a classic button down. Letting the color peek through is a great way to incorporate it into your outfit.

Big & Bigger Bags

Oversized bags are great for fitting everything you could ever need. When it comes to accessorizing this season, the bigger the bag, the better.

An elevated beach tote can be worn everywhere, from running errands to attending graduation ceremonies. A chic, oversized tote is functional and fun.

With so many patterns, textures, and colors to choose from, let your bag make the statement from morning to night.

Floral Maxi Dress

No summer wardrobe is complete without a floral maxi dress.

This is a staple in any wardrobe because it is easy to throw on and still look put-together for any occasion.

This summer, when bold colors and patterns are trending, choose a dress that makes a statement.

A bright, colorful pattern will turn heads, even with the most basic silhouettes.

This is one of my favorite ways to make a bold fashion statement, while also feeling comfortable all summer long.
