Find your new favorite must-haves with personal styling.

New season, new styles. Taking inspiration from the runway and the season’s mellow vibes, these are the six trends you’ll catch us wearing over and over again. Take a look at how we’ve styled them into classy summer outfits for women just ahead.

White dress paired with nude shoes

Keep it simple with white dresses

Sometimes less really is more. That’s why adding this breezy piece to our list was a no-brainer.  The simplicity of a white dress serves as the perfect foundation for any outfit, plus, a lightweight breathable fabric is a great choice for hot days. To rock a white dress yourself, pick a style that suits you best, then accessorize accordingly. If you want more of a casual look, try a simple silhouette and pair it with sneakers or flats. For a dressier take, go for a textured design and add colorful shoes and accessories.

Go nude with your shoes

The season’s most lust-worthy footwear also happens to be the most subdued. Neutral colored shoes are a must-have largely in part of how versatile they are—but don’t underestimate the fashionable edge they can add to an outfit. From heels and wedges, to sandals and slides, look to flesh-toned hues to kick up your look. Not sure how to style them? Coordinate your favorite pair with an earthy toned ensemble or use them to anchor an outfit composed of bright colors.

Tie it up with a tie-front shirt

We’re suckers for classic pieces updated with a contemporary twist. And since summer is all about easy outfits, we’re still sticking to our favorite pieces, but with a little upgrade. Tie-front shirts feature the familiarity and comfort of classic tees, but the added detail offers a cool distinction that feels fresh. Wear them with straight-leg trousers and sandals or with denim shorts and sneakers for a look that can be worn wherever the dress code calls for a casual-chic outfit.

Add a whimsical touch with eyelet

Embroidered with tiny hole designs, eyelet fabric is a summer staple because of how breathable and lightweight it is. Plus, the eyelet details enhance the whimsy and romance of our favorite sleeveless blouses. For a modern look, style your top with crop-flare jeans and accessories that play up the femininity of the overall outfit like a floral clutch and block heel sandals.

Give utility pieces a chic makeover 

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: we’re all about easy pieces that make getting dressed a simple task. That’s why on our list of favorite pieces, jumpsuits are at the top. A utilitarian jumpsuit not only feels effortlessly cool, but the minimal design approach also makes it super versatile to style. Dress it down with sleek sneakers and a backpack or dress it up with metallic jewelry and statement mules for a bold approach. Read our post on pairing shoes with jumpsuits for more tips.

Get inspired by the tropics

Why wait for a vacation to dress like you’re on one? To infuse tropical vibes into your outfit, start with a brightly colored statement piece (extra points for anything with a large-scale floral print). Then dial up the excitement even more by adding a top in a contrasting pastel shade and accessories with natural textures and woven straw details.
