The Biketard

Get ready. to rock the new jumpsuit for summer – a biketard. This stylish one piece is going to be everywhere and on every one of our favorite it-girls this summer. We are loving  the spin of vibrant colors that Marrisa Wilson New York put on this no brainer piece. This. trend can be worn alone or you can add layers for a whole new look. So where exactlt do you wear a Biketard? Anywhere you want! This type of bodysuit or workout romper is good for a light sesh at the gym (which has been a go-to gym girlie outfit), or at a casual happy hour with the girls, or can be styled up. with a pair of trousers, which will make it look like a fitted top.

Crochet dresses have summer’s must have dress and a cover-up can double as a going out staple or a pool necessity. Wear it as a dress over your bikini for a relaxed look at the beachside bar, or put over shorts and a crop tank for a casual shopping day out. You can even layer it over a slip dress and start a new fashion forward trend at dinner. The options are endless when it comes to crochet and macrame and you’ll instantly exude effortlessly cool bohemian vibes.

50 shades of Barbie pink is going to be huge this summer thanks to the hype around the brand new movie. I mean who doesn’t love a pop of pink. No matter what shade you decide to wear ( even a spring worthy pastel pink), you’ll be on trend as a true Barbie girl. A way to elevate the color, find pieces that have subtle details or patterns for a fun and flirty look. Rompers are also a great way to wear the color and fit for any summer escape overseas or over at a friends get together. Scour stores like Bebe, Lulu’s and Revolve to find your Barbie style.

Smocked Sundresses

Our hot LA weather (especially during July and August) calls for sundresses for maximum comfort and maximum flow. But the trend that has elevated the every day maxi or midi, is a smock. Smocked dresses are the latest craze because it throws a little nostalgic throwback to the 90’s and they’re more flattering than your average maxi dress. Try finding a dress with a smock at the mid section for that snatched waist look. If you plan to rock it during the day, throw on a pair of flat sandals with strings to tie around your ankle. Sundresses are also perfect at night with stacked espadrilles. Chic, comfy and summer’s best go-to.

Power Blazers

There are endless options for what you can wear to a dinner, but the trend this summer is a matching blazer set or dress (we are in love with this magenta one from NastyGal). We are talking blazer dresses, blazer with shorts, blazers with mini’s… you get the idea. Blazer dresses and blazer sets effortlessly combine power and play, just the way we like it. You can rock them as a dress on their own or mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe. Either way you wear it,  the structured design of a blazer set or dress instantly adds a touch of class to your summer style.

Lived in Linen

Wearing linen this summer is just another way to be effortlessly chic and casually on trend. In a world where sustainability is key, linen shines as a planet-friendly choice and its timeless appeal means you can invest in linen pieces that will remain stylish year after year. Plus, the more lived in it looks, the better. One of our favorite ways to wear it is styling a pair of linen palazzo pants with a tight bodysuit & strappy heels for a classic summer vibe. And although we love the muted look of linen pieces, try an even bolder look and find some colorful linen staples.

Mesh Moment

To spice things up for your summer #ootd, an all out mesh moment is a great way to turn some heads. Mesh pieces instantly add a touch of allure and sophistication and are perfect for summer nights. Pick up a mesh long sleeved top to put over your bikini top as you hit up the bar. A mesh bodysuit with a deep plunge or studded details like this one is the perfect go-to to layer under a cute denim jacket or pair with high waisted denim for a cool 70’s-esque glamorous look. Mesh bodysuits are also a cool girl piece for a music festival, a rooftop party, or a hot date. We’ve got some favorites that we plan to wear all summer long.
