Big Drop Pick: Genie by Eugenia Kim Straw Hats
Why we love them: When it comes to warm weather accessories, you can’t go wrong with a straw fedora. Putting a new spin on the classic summer staple, these colorful picks from the collection Genie by Eugenia Kim come in unexpected shades like coral and blue. This updated twist on the traditional hat is a perfect way to stay cool and stylish (and not to mention protected from the sun!). Be it the beach or a 4th of July BBQ, this line of hats are the perfect summertime fashion statement!
Get the look: The only piece missing from your summer uniform of lace white mini dresses and long jersey maxis is a colorful cap. Add a pop of color to your wardrobe by pairing them with one of these fashionable fedoras. Or stay beach chic by topping off your denim cut offs and cotton tees.
Short suits aren’t only a great option for business casual during the summer- they work anywhere and everywhere. From a brunch date to a day at the beach to an evening out there are no limits for this effortlessly chic look.
Sporting a shorts suit doesn’t require a matching set. The key to being well suited during the summer months is color so coordinate your outfit around a bright blazer or patterned pair of shorts. Complete the outfit with pieces in complimentary colors that pick up similar shades. For a fun twist on the classic button down wear one with a tie closure in white or bright shades like pink and orange.
From maxis to minis, we can’t wait to wear dresses all summer long. Once the temperature hits the mid 70s, these lace cutout dresses are a must-have for brunch or a day at the beach. Dance the night away in silk halter frocks (with colors that pop like pink, coral, and yellow we can’t decide which is our favorite)! And for casual pool attire, throw on a jersey maxi or sheer printed dress that doubles as a cover up!
Big Drop Pick: Haute Hippie Sequin Shorts
Why we love them: Sequins? Sparkles? What’s not to love! This summer substitute bright neon colors with these sparkly sequin shorts. That’s right, metallics are not just for holidays and nightlife anymore!
Get the look: Since this summer is all about luxe fabrics like lightweight silk, it’s good to mix things up every now and then. Get started by pairing these shorts with basics like a gray racer back tank or sleeveless pleated black top. Rock them with a distressed rocker tee for an edgier, casual cool look. Or stand out with lightweight layers that add a pop of color like these pink, yellow, or orange mesh sweaters.
