Looks We Love: Summer Chic

While temperatures may skyrocket past 90 degrees, don’t let the threat of sweat keep you from being chic. Keep your sense of style entertained this summer with these three chic looks.

“Nautical but Nice”

Ahoy there! Channel your inner yacht sailing prepster with a navy striped tee (perfect for cool evenings) and classic Sperry boat shoes. Add a stack of gold bangles and cat eye sunnies for a touch of class, and top it off with a bright pair or coral shorts. Sailor chic has never looked so good.

“Damsel in Distress”

Give yourself a style challenge and merge ultra casual with high sophistication by pairing distressed shorts, a comfy tee (ironic statement shirts and concert tees are great options) and a luxe rhinestone statement necklace together. The glamorous necklace elevates the look from ordinary to extraordinary. Bonus points if you further this eclectic conglomeration with pointy-toe flats and aviators.

“The Last Resort”

Resort wear isn’t just for sunbirds in Boca Raton. You are guaranteed to  turn heads with this triple threat of trends outfit. Pair a maxi in a bold and bright print with a solid peplum top. Add a statement necklace in a complementary color for more interest. Finally, invoke your sun goddess with wedges, sunglasses, and the requisite floppy hat. Happy travels!

Lilly Pulitzer-the Princess of Prints-Dies at 81

Blindingly bright. Playful and young. Carefree. Sunny. All of these adjectives describe the fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer’s unique aesthetic. It is unfortunate that Ms. Pulitzer passed away a few days ago, but her sassy prints will forever be imprinted on the hearts of her dedicated fans.

Lilly Pulitzer clothing is a staple of the upbeat and preppy. Her clothing screams to be worn on a yacht, or at the Kentucky Derby. Even the most shocking color combination or cartoon creature was not off limits to Pulitzer’s designs. Such unique combinations were created out of necessity. In an article by the New York Times, Lilly Pulitzer created a dress that would camouflage orange and grapefruit juice stains. Her ingenuity paid off, and soon enough Lilly Pulitzer was a household name in the yuppie crowd.

Today, Lilly Pulitzer’s iconic prints can not only be found on her quintessential shift dresses, but on iPhone cases, tumblers, scarves, mugs, and more.
