This organza puff sleeve top is THE perfect top for that virtual cocktail hour with the ladies or dressy business meeting. It comes with a camisole lining which is great so you don’t need to fuss about what to wear underneath. It’s also so fun for the spring and summer since it comes in 4 colorways and can be paired easily with shorts and skirts. Complete the look with large gold hoops.
My next pick is this adorable pink halterneck top complete with a dramatic bow in the back. I’ve specifically chosen this to be paired with the pink pintuck shorts for a girly and youthful monochromatic summertime look. I recommend styling this with a nude belt with gold buckle if you’re hoping to stay fully monochromatic, and then complete with nude wedges and floral earrings. A bold black belt will take this outfit up a notch and break up the pink.
Since a lot of us may still be staying home even with the reopenings, I’ve chosen this comfortable scallop tee which is an upgrade to the everyday tee. It’s more refined and has a universal fit but with some flair because of the white and black contrast and the lettuce hem detailing.
It’s heating up here in Southern California so it’s time to bring out the shorts! Denim and linen shorts are pretty much staples this time of year, but I thought a little upgrade would be nice – like this pair of pleated shorts with tie detailing. The wide fit makes it look like a skirt, and the crisp fabrication will elevate your whole look. Pair this with your favorite pair of flat sandals and a puff sleeve tee.
Have you guys read my recent post about the perfect floral dress silhouettes to rock this spring and summer? This floral shirtdress is the perfect example! The mini cut and light, flowy fabric makes it the perfect summer dress while still being demure thanks to the tulle bow and sleeve length. I also love the floral pattern of this piece.
A smocked waist dress is also a great option this time of year. It’s super easy to dress up and down which is why I love it! You can pair this with espadrilles or sneakers and a woven tote if you’re doing an essentials run.
Moving away from the girlier pieces for a moment, I’ve chosen this belted shirt jacket which incorporates some utilitarian elements for a more masculine vibe. My favorite part is how it still outlines the female silhouette with the belt cinching the waist and asymmetrical cut revealing some shoulder. This is a statement top so keep the rest of the outfit simple with black leggings (perhaps leather) and everyday pumps.
Next is a casual, relaxed fit top with contrasting striped balloon sleeves. I just thought it was so adorable and can be worn with almost anything for a put-together casual look.
A summer wardrobe would not be complete without a bright floral skirt. I especially like this pleated one from Elie Tahari because of the mixed patterns (floral and paisley), it definitely adds something extra to the skirt and makes it more striking.
Speaking of mixed patterns, here’s a floral mini dress with puff sleeves which screams SPRING. I love the floral patterns that make up this dress and the silhouette is flattering for all body types.
This cotton flounce hem dress is a very similar silhouette as the previous but the all-white makes it the perfect everyday dress. The little white tie completes the casual look but you can easily switch it out for a more glam piece to bring the outfit to night. You can also go bold with your earrings or shoes in contrasting patterns and bright colors since the dress is like a blank palette than you can build on.
