If there's one outfit I can't wait to wear this summer, it's an of-the-moment linen short suit—a favorite among fashion girls right now. It's the perfect outfit for a day of meetings in the city.
Cool by the Pool
If you're going to invest in one thing this summer, make it a statement swimsuit. I love this Solid & Striped belted one-piece in the most Insta-worthy print. For an easy cover-up, pair it with a bright linen wrap dress (worn open) and finish the look with chic a straw tote for all your poolside necessities.
I've fallen hard for this Rixo printed slip dress. It's the perfect piece to take you from day-to-night in style. Pair with this season's sporty sandals to give the look a casual edge.
Everything about this chic layered look is utter perfection. Pair Zara's prim lilac tweed midi-skirt over a colorful pleated dress for a statement desk-to-drinks look. Metallic sandals add a sleek finishing touch.
If you haven't invested in an animal print piece, then now is the time. The trend is here to stay—with cool girls everywhere embracing the new neutral within their summer looks. Zebra prints, in particular, are trending hard right now.
Song of Style's new collection has the chicest warm-weather pieces to get us excited for summer. This pastel yellow skirt set is at the top of our wish list.
Easy and Effortless
For an easy and effortless no-think outfit that will see you through summer, pair light-wash jeans with a pretty white blouse. Of-the-moment clear wedges add the chicest finishing touch. Simple yet striking.
