Pretty in pink

If you’re searching for a zero-effort outfit upgrade for that BBQ you have this Saturday, consider this. Start off with a simple white dress (a fail-safe summer essential) but pair with a pink printed kimono to take it from basic to brilliant with ease. Keep it playful by clashing up the florals and ruffle detailing with your go-to sneaks, or give your look the vacay treatment with a pair of statement sliders

Swimsuit switch-up

Silky florals on a flowing fabric are guaranteed to elevate your cover-up game all summer long. The key is to keep the rest of your swimwear shade minimal but add extra detail with surface texture and cute cut-outs. See above for oh-so-sweet seaside style.

Boho basic

If you’re down to rep a kimono this summer, go hard by opting for intricate paisley prints and rustic hues. Drape your free-spirit staple over mid-rise denim cut-offs and a breezy tank. To finish? Think Western-influenced jewelry and a dusky pink fedora.

Leopard-print lady

Adding a statement layer to your classic jeans-and-a-top combo will breathe new life into your summer-in-the-city steez. This #AsSeenOnMe pic makes a major case for animal print. Pro tip? Go XXL on the length but balance out the fierce pattern with muted, peachy tones and vintage-wash denim. Finish with relaxed, leather sliders for effortless cool.

Stripe it right

If subtle’s more your thing, this casj grayscale print is not only the perfect pair-with-everything piece but is also a nod to this season's so-now stripes. By day, complete the look with relaxed mom jeans and dainty lace-up pumps. Or, for a cute color pop, up the fancy with suede red heels, plus glitzy bling.
