10 Outfits to Splash from Spring into Summer

June 24, 2014

Summer is upon us! It’s so close that we can literally smell the barbecues and tanning lotion. We’re getting our umbrellas, pool toys, and beach towels out of storage, and getting ready to soak up the sunshine. But, we’re not quite there yet. If you’re struggling with your closet, not sure which pieces in your wardrobe should move to the back of the closet and which should stay just a little bit longer, take a deep breath! Our stylists have created ten outfits that are perfect for making the transition from spring to summer. Here are some ideas to help you through this seasonal shift.

Look #1

Our classic Mesh Shirt is perfect to layer over the Essential Tank (latte). Tie it up at the waist for a fun, casual look over the Ivy League Short. Wear with flat, strappy Grecian sandals and a spray tan!

Bright and colorful, the Mum Cami is perfectly suited for spring and summer looks. Wear it tucked into the elegant Luna Skirt and top it with the Boa Belt for added style. Paired with a great pair of ankle strap sandals and a high ponytail, and you’ll be ready for your first summer soiree!

Look #3

The Skipper Vest is an easy top for layering when the temperature cools at night or when the ocean breezes sweep in. Topped over the soft and flowing Linen Tank and the Indie Jean, rolled up, and you get a casual, but spiffy look for a weekend outing or even a first date! If the roll is too thick on your Indies, get them altered, or you can do it yourself by cutting them at the ankle. Consider them your new cropped jeans!

Accessories: Low Wedges, Necklace

Look #4

We love the skin print and tunic shape of the Easy Tank for a cool look that works perfectly over the M’leggins. Throw on a pair of hidden wedge tennis shoes. This look will turn heads while you’re out walking the dog in style!

Accessories: Necklace

Look #5

The keyhole opening of the Lobster Top screams “summer.” It’s girly and flirty, especially when tucked into the Short Reversible Skirt. wear the floral border side, high at the true waist, with the Boa Belt for a little edge. To up the ante, we recommend wearing a pair of gladiators with it to lessen the “sweet factor” of the printed skirt.

Accessories: Bag

Look #6

White Baby Boot jeans are a summer must, and camis are the go-to piece for layering in spring and summer. In Strawberry, the Simple Cami also adds a pop of bright color underneath the Resort Tee, to break up the white on white look. We love the funnel cap sleeves of the tee, which add a perfectly casual, but tres chic vibe to the comfy tee.

Accessories: Bag, Sunglasses

Look #7

Summer perfection. The bright colors of the Everyday Scarf are brought out by the Simple Cami in Daffodil, worn under the uber-femme Needle Lace Shell. Wear it with the Destructed Brett Jean, a fabulous contrast to the feminine top and flowing scarf. We like it with pointy D’Orsay flats in a bright color, and suggest rolling up your jeans for a cropped look.

Look #9

You’ll be wearing the It Girl Cami all season long. But tucked in the front with the relaxed Coast Crop, and you’re good to go for any summer gathering. Topping it with the black and white Flower Graph Scarf, and you’ll have that “didn’t try too hard but still look fabulous” look. Hot tip: wash your scarf in extra fabric softener and it will drape like crazy, softly framing your beautiful face!
