It’s almost impossible to believe that we’re nearly halfway through 2022. It feels like we were just celebrating the new year and making initial plans for distant, warm weather getaways. Well, summer is here and we couldn’t be happier. Our store and website are filled with loads of summer outfit ideas for a variety of occasions, whatever your personal style. We thought it would be fun to highlight a few here. A hashtag we use often in our social media posts is #wearablefashion. We strive to source, buy, and create looks that are both fashionable and easy to wear for real people living real lives.
We’ll start with a casual, classic, shorts and sweater look. We love the navy and orange color combination. The loose-knit, t-shirt style sweater adds interest and texture, while the trio of gold necklaces dress up the look. Add a large tote and sneakers and you’re ready for a full day of errands, or elevate the look a bit with some wedge espadrilles or a low heel.
One of our favorite day dresses is this gorgeous, floral offering by Sundry. It’s an on-trend piece, with a vintage style print, full sleeves and billowy, boho feel. We see this with a woven bag and some retro wooden heeled sandals. For an outdoor event, wide-brimmed sunhat and some classic clogs or comfortable flat sandals would be perfect.
Summer is always a time for color. Yet some outfits stand out for their lack of color. This graphic black and white combination is both timeless and trending. These high-rise, wide leg trousers in white are a must-have. They elevate a look more than white denim, but are loose fitting and comfortable. They’re paired perfectly with this subtly sexy, off-shoulder black linen-like top. The wide brimmed hat protects both your face and shoulders (not to be a substitute for sunscreen), and adds an element of textural interest. As the trousers are full length, we suggest a heel like these platform sandals or braided heels by Dolce Vita.
Lastly, we’d like to highlight a little dressier look. This gorgeous dress by MISA stands out in a style season filled with maxidresses. While it’s short, we keep the look ladylike by tying the neckline high. We’re firm believers in the “highlight only one asset” rule, and the legs have it here. With this beautiful print, keep your jewelry simple, perhaps some gold and diamond huggies. We love a flouncy, feminine dress with sneakers. The look is both comfortable and on-trend. White cowboy boots give the look a little youthful edge. And a classic, block heel look is both elegant and comfortable. With shorter styles, we advise to steer clear of skyhigh stilettos, keep your look refined.
Four unique outfits. All beautiful. All say SUMMER. We’re excited about our offerings, we hope you are too. Visit us Monday through Saturday from 11-5, or shop these looks and so much more online anytime. ENJOY!
