VIDEO #7: Stripes for Summer, Pt. 3
Finding pieces that can be styled everyday and that strike a balance between being both comfortable and chic can sometimes feel like a tall order. So often, casual can end up looking frumpy and polished can feel downright uncomfortable. And if you can't wait until the end of the day to take off whatever's hugging you just a little too tightly, then you're doing your shopping all wrong. Fashion is about feeling confident in what you wear, knowing what styles suit your body type best and can show off what you love most about about yourself. It's about choosing pieces that make you feel liberated and feminine, and of course are easy to wear. Clothing should feel like a second skin and a natural extension of your personality - at least that's our philosophy.
Give us an easy-to-style tee and linen pant that we can live in all summer and we'll be happy. That's basically our summer uniform in a nutshell. Let's start with the ever-so-versatile tee. There's so much you can do with it - it should pretty much be a staple in your closet. We love our basic solid tees, as they can so easily be mixed with bolder patterns to create fun and inventive new looks. But we also love a good graphic tee! They feel more expressive - all sass and attitude - and can add more dimension to a look. In the look styled in this video, we've fully tucked the super cute Pomodoro tee (which means tomato in Italian!) into a linen pant - however you can just as easily style it partially tucked over a denim pant or knotted over a midi skirt. There are so many different ways to work it!
Let's move on to the striped linen culottes - this piece definitely makes it onto our summer 'must-have' list. Be sure to stick to vertical stripes when it comes to the trousers for a more flattering fit. It will give the illusion of a slimmer, more elongated figure that you can further accentuate with a pair of heels or wedges! Stay away for the horizontal stripe, as it can make you look wider in the hip area - a huge no no, even for the most slender of women!
Cinch the look with a straw tote that can fit all your essentials. This classic summer tote is not just for market. We love using these for everyday too - as they can fit everything from an iphone and ipad, to wallet, keys, sunglasses with ease.
