This wouldn’t be a roundup of enviable summer style without a look featuring the season’s staples: lived-in denim and a reworked button down.
Ok, this look isn’t for the faint of heart, but we admire how well these seemingly mis-matched pieces (an athletic top, velvet trousers and a bandana) work together.
When it comes to fashion, we often wonder: What does “cool” even mean anymore? This look of shredded denim, babouches and a laid-back tunic is deserving of the nebulous term.
For those of you who have advanced past the T-shirt and slip dress combo, there’s an off-the-shoulder take to try.
A blazer can, and should, take the starring role in a look.
When it’s so hot that you can’t be bothered to think about your clothes, a statement dress can come to the rescue.
If summer lasted forever, we’d default to this look every day.
Whether you get crafty or go shopping, the denim message is loud and clear: patches and personalization is in.
