Summer On Our Minds
Summer is officially in full swing and the heat makes us think of all kinds of stuff. Including clothes. And outfit ideas.
Black is not exactly a color choice for summer, but the cut and design of this LBD with a lace peek-a-boo detail is so fresh, so original, and so young. Yet it is both classy and classic. Throw in some pearl accessories and a pair of classic black pumps and clutch and it’s the perfect look for a hotel wedding or a fancy dinner date or more formal events. To dress it down, wear with a pair of brogues or ballerina flats, a colored purse, and stack on some arm candies. Available at coco-fashion.com for $8.60. Item Code j71769bl.
The black-and-white color-blocking trend has been a major trend for spring/summer 2013. And we predict that this classic color pairing will live on even after the warmer months will be over as black and white numbers are also perfect transitional pieces for fall. For summer though, we’re following Kristen Wiig’s lead by wearing the trend with a pair of colored shoes, like the comedienne’s electric blue stilettos, for a pop of color.
The best motivation and reward for the hours clocked in at the gym and for doing crunches every day is being able to wear crop tops like this without any shame or inhibition. That and becoming healthy. So yes, Diane Kruger’s crop halter top and low-waisted printed trousers is our ultimate gymspiration.
An asymmetric blue cardigan with draped collar for when the weather gets bipolar. It is lightweight, versatile, and the perfect layering piece to throw on on of a top+trousers combo, or shirt and shorts combination, or even a summer dress. That it comes in a summery color is a plus, too. Available at coco-fashion.com for $8.60. Item code i20A1(5950)be. Also available in yellow, black, white, and pink.
We are obviously attracted to all things blue. So this midi-length circle skirt is definitely in our list. Perfect when paired with a bandeau or crop top, or a collarless shirt ala J.Law here. Available at coco-fashion.com for $10.83. Also available in light blue.
We have featured Shini Park and her awesome blog, Park & Cube, in our post here. This picture is not her though, but we found it in her blog and we thought a polka-dotted turquoise maxi skirt and a blue and white tie-front shirt is a very fresh pairing, one that captures summer so well.
Crushing on Jane’s off-shoulder crop top and white midi skirt. Perfect for those bike rides to pick up flowers and fresh produce from the farmer’s market. Or maybe for an afternoon picnic with friends.
