What are three things I need to have for summer?

A: The summer season never seems long enough for us, so we’re taking every opportunity to enjoy the year’s sunniest months in style. We've waded through all the sizzling trends and have broken down the must-have pieces to keep you cool--in all senses of the word!

1. Grab global-influenced and printed anything! Dresses, rompers, tanks, and skirts in tribal-inspired prints offer the perfect chance to look and feel fresh for summer. Find a print that speaks to you--on a flattering-to-your-bod style (remember: bold prints can be your friend or foe!)--and style with your favorite wardrobe classics. We love a crisp white shirt paired with printed tapered trousers or shorts, a denim shirt mixed with a simple print skirt, or a patterned tank combined with a dark indigo or bright white skinny jean.

2. Cover all with overalls! In the spirit of summer music festivals and youthful, free, summertime adventures, we encourage you to play with any fun overall, coverall, or jumpsuit you can get your hands on. You can make an overall feel modern with a printed tee and colored flat sandal, and a jumpsuit feel sophisticated with a pump and sharp summertime blazer.

3. Add a dash of bright white please! Invest in bright white accessories to instantly liven up any look and feel more seasonally crisp and optimistic. Grab bold white sunglasses (loving a square or geometric frame!), a clutch (white and Lucite anyone?), or wedge sandal (maybe mixed with snake!).
