Shop 8 Of Our Favorite Summer Outfits - Like Stepping Into Our Fantasy Closet
June 14, 2010
Nobody gets more excited about seasonal clothes than us. So we’ve partnered with National Jean company and The Shoe Box to create a little boutique filled with outfits we love.
You can click the items to see them individually, or shop the whole boutique here.
We kind of want everything.
1. Park-Bench Picnic
For a relaxed picnic (at which you still want to look really good), we love this corset-detail floral dress ($110) with a big leather bag ($595) and luxe, slightly bohemian Delman sandals ($226). A bohemian bracelet ($50) is all the jewelry you need.
2. Best-Dressed Girl at the Dive Bar
For a slightly-rowdy night out, try a slouchy vest($56) and printed scarf ($148) over the season-standout J. Brand skinny cargo pant ($230). A tough pair of wedges ($140) adds a good dose of height without looking too girly for a dive-y beer bar.
3. Wednesday Pick-Me-Up
Add a dose of ’70s style glamor to your workweek with a this Winter Kate cardigan ($145) over a pair of J Brand wide-leg jeans ($139). This neutral platform pump ($168) is walkable enough to qualify as workwear, and stackable gold rings ($145 for 7) tie the retro-inspired look together.
4. Dinner Out, Spontaneous Cocktails
This two-tone dress ($88) is easy to wear a billion ways, and affordable to boot. We’d pair it with comfortable Modern Vintage sandals ($158) and minimal jewelry for a night out: The stackable rings ($55) and stud earrings ($30) below add just the right amount of shine.
5. Sunday Errands
Stay comfy but pulled-together for brunch and errand-running: Layer an on-trend sailor-striped tank ($42) over a pair of leggings ($55) and under a light, flow-y cardigan ($96). Add patent Bloch flats ($190) instead of flip-flops for a polished-casual vibe.
6. Laid-Back Family Dinner
A sleeveless button-down shirt ($98) paired with a swingy mini skirt ($54) is fun but not too formal; add super versatile braided flat sandals from Tapeet ($350) and textured gold hoops ($72) for dinner with the family, or high wedges and a cocktail ring for a night out.
7. Spring-Style Day-to-Night
We love this Gypsy 05 dress ($138) for its easy shape and summer-y color. Pair it with flat sandals, or for an edgier look, throw on a long cardigan ($74) and belt the ensemble with this Joes Jeans chain belt ($68). Finish the look with one of our favorite wedges of the season, from Cynthia Vincent ($405).
8. Casual Friday at Work
For a casual day at the office, start with a summer-white blazer ($84) and a proper pair of metallic Michael Kors flats ($185). Dress down the combination with Genetic Denim’s distressed skinny jean ($196) and a plain white tee; an intricate gold necklace ($72) adds a nice dose of femininity.
