Pure, yet sexy at the same time? We’re not quite sure which category the ingwa; melero Flora Dress falls under; quite possibly both. But we do know that one has to be quite comfortable showing a little skin; this dress bares quite a bit of it on the midriff with a fabulous leather floral cut out, not to mention the deep V neck and completely bare back. I think we’re going to have to go with sexy on this one.
Love animal prints? If so, you’re in luck because leopard is going to look great on your feet with the Corso Como Summer Haircalf Flat Thong. We all love wearing flip flops in the summer, so why not get a high quality pair with a dash of style? The Haircalf thong is printed in leopard and comes with a comfy leather sole.
Swimwear is getting more and more glam every year! If you don’t mind a little bit of embellishment on your bikini, try on the Melissa Odabash Sharita Bikini. It comes in a gorgeous shade of green but the real treat is the stone detailing on the strap of the halter top. Enjoy the bandeau style top with a ring, and string bikini bottoms as well.
So you’ve already started to stock upon clothes to keep you cool in the heat, but you can’t forget to protect your eyes from the sun! A pair of round, Jackie O style sunglasses are classic and look great with any outfit. Thankfully, you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to get this look; the Armani Exchange Round Logo Sunglasses ($70) will do the trick perfectly. But if you don’t mind the splurge, go for the Dita Pretender Sunglasses ($175). The great thing about these two pairs is that they’re not so huge that they’ll look silly; they’re just right.
The high waisted trend is pretty much made to show off a skirt, and this is one skirt you’ll truely want to show off! The Nanette Lepore Abbey Road Skirt takes three basic colors, navy, white and beige, and puts them together in a way that isn’t so standard. It’s the perfect way to add a little flairto your work wardrobe, and all you need to do is add a crisp button down shirt.
