When we're on the brink of a new season like summer, I'm always thinking about what my approach will be for getting dressed and which items I'll be adding to my shopping list. Though I study the runway trends and keep a close eye on all of the newness arriving on the market at my favorite brands and retailers, I always wish I could get an inside peek at what fashion insiders are ordering and the new pieces sitting in their closets.
That's why I reached out to some of the most stylish women on the fashion scene and asked them to share the exact items they'll be wearing next month once summer hits. Their shortlists are stocked with everything from directional, colorful flats and fresh takes on denim to going-out bras and pretty cotton dresses. Scroll down for their cool summer shopping picks to inspire your new-season wardrobe.
"Easy, everyday comfort with a fashion twist. Comfortable fashion with a practical sensibility is how I plan to dress this summer. I want pieces that are timeless but have a nod to this new fashion dawn of being excited to dress up again. I'll be opting for neutrals, that I know I can come back to next summer and the summer after that."
"For me, a white cotton dress is definitely a must-have summer staple. This incredible dress is from our exclusive capsule collection with Khaite that launched on Monday and is truly the perfect addition to our summer wardrobes."
"Practicality and comfort have been top of mind for us all lately and these sandals from Birkenstock make the perfect summer sandal. The woven detailing gives them an elevated feel making them extra special."
"We've recently launched New York brand, Savette and it has quickly become my new favorite multifunctional bag. It's a modern yet classic handbag suitable for any and all occasions. I know I will find myself grabbing for it all summer long."
"My summer looks are looking pretty colorful, as I am excited to wear my vibrant pink and green pieces, even color-blocking them in one look. I'm also looking forward to sporting wide-leg trousers and crochet tops."
"Summer season passes by so fast, it is such a good time to style bra tops and the possibility are endless depending on your comfort level. A statement bra like this one can be layered over a T-shirt or worn just on its own with a pair of high-rise trousers. Don't be afraid of experimenting!"
