Moll Must: Sizzlin’ – yet Seasonally Appropriate – Summer Style

06.16.15

Summer style means sizzling fashion, but it also means having a lot of fashion staples ready on hand for all of those fun summer get-togethers! I’ve broken it down for us, so we can have sweet summer fashion ready for any event!

Picnic pieces. To keep it casual, yet cute, this summer is all about the rompers. I feel a bit like we’re revisiting the 70s and 80s here, but there are tons more choices for rompers than we had back then.

 

 

For a date night picnic, give your black a break and go for a white hot romper, like this Jen’s Pirate Booty Yvette Romper romper from Revolve ($286.00).

Rebecca Minkoff’s Ashby Foliage-Print Romper ($278.00) for a backyard barbecue, is the perfect blend of retro, nature and floral elements.

Out on the water. When I think seaside, I don’t know about you, but I think nautical. It’s fun, classic and cool, like this linen Mesa Dress by A.L.C. ($224.00).

For a day at the lake, opt for a pair of cut offs or boyfriend jean shorts worn over your bathing suit and you will be ready for anything from a boat ride, lake swim or beach walk. Add a sweater or sweatshirt for those chillier summer nights.

Whatever you wear, show off your patriotic pride with pretty fashion!

Summertime Weddings. One rule on what wear to the summertime weddings you’re attending? Be sure to keep it comfortable and cool. Need a little bit more guidance than that? Here are three styles that are good go-to’s, depending on the formality of the wedding.

For a day to night wedding, choose a long, flowing sundress, like this Parker Ashford Combo Dress ($297.00), which combines a soft palette, with pops of bright florals. It will be sublime for photos, when paired with a hot pink, or berry, lipstick.

A little retro always adds a hint of glam for a wedding. If you want to walk into the wedding, feeling like Grace Kelly, look no further than the Classiest Place On Earth dress ($109.99)

If you’re going to a glitzy affair, why not bring the glitz, yourself with this Aidan Mattox Two-Tone Embellished Dress ($385.00)? It’s just sophisticated enough, with a touch of glitz for the dance floor, or a fun fireworks display.

And, don’t forget the best piece of fashion advice I’ve ever heard: Always walk into the room, with your head held high, because confidence is our greatest accessory.
