Summer Fashion Update

June 17, 2015

Now that the weather has officially changed, we are searching our closets for the perfect items to look modern, fashionable and cool as a cucumber in the humidity.

This season, there are a few “must haves” that we are lusting for. Early adopters may have them already, but for the rest of us, these items are becoming this season’s go-tos.

Jumpsuits: These have been floating around for a couple of seasons now, but this year, they are primed to take over for the maxi dress.Look for one with ease and fluidity that can be dressed up or down. Add a jacket for polish, and you can take this trend all the way to the office. Instead of shorts on the weekend, opt for a printed one piece romper.


Add a heel and great accessories for a sexy yet chic look.

Fun, casual romper in an indigo print

Culottes: This one is a bit controvertial, since people either love them or hate them. For us, it is about finding the right proportion for your body that suits your personal style.

Get sexy with a cropped top and strappy heels


Relax the look with an oversized shirt

Flare leg jeans: We posted about these recently, but the skinny jean is taking a back seat to this new shape, reminiscent of the 1970’s. Wear them full length with a chunky heel, or crop them a bit and wear a flat sandal.

Fringed flats that lace up the leg

A little fringe: The 70’s were the biggest influence on the runways, and fringe showed up everywhere. While fringed suede skirts and jackets were prevelent, as was the long fringed shoulder bag, we are looking to be a little more subtle. We love the idea of a fringed shoe to take our look to the next level.

All of the sudden, they’re everywhere…that hybrid between full cut pants, and an easy skirt. They hit anywhere from just below the knee, to just above the ankle, and come in fabrics ranging from leather to fluid silk. Yep, you guessed it; the culotte is back! Reminiscent of the 70’s, the culotte is making a comeback, and the look is more modern than ever.

Today’s culottes are versatile enough to be worn casually with a sweater, or more elegantly with a blazer. Designers have been seeding the idea for a few seasons now, and this fall, the culotte is the “it” silhouette to own.

Gucci’s pre Fall collection in 2011 featured culottes with a chunky cable sweater and boots that looks perfect, several seasons later.


Soft and fluid, or in green leather, culottes are the perfect daytime option to a skirt or trousers.
