Wardrobe Essentials for Spring and Summer

Wardrobe essentials for this season include fresh perspectives on classics, such as strong shouldered blazers, and brand new ideas, such as Kendall Jenner’s exposure of the sheer lacy bra top. You can take these trends and make them your own with a few minor additions and deletions. Just don’t set foot out the door with these four wardrobe must-haves.

Anything Pink

This shade showed up everywhere on the Spring 2017 runways as an ironic non-color that proved its sophistication by its very semi-ugliness. Now that it’s hit the streets, pink has morphed into something else again. Smart women are selecting pink shades that flatter their own unique skin tones.

Powder Pink Skirt, $34.99, H&M

This calf-length, gently flared skirt in constructed of soft ribbed fabric with an elasticized waistband. It is lt is lined and machine washable.

Lacy Sheer Bra Tops

Kendall Jenner started this trend with her somewhat-scandalous Coachella debut of the sheer, lacy bralette worn as shirt, then did all of us a favor by following up with the latest version: bralette worn over thin, white tee shirt. Choose between the two styles or throw on a cool jacket and leave the lacy bra peeking out.

Anine Bing Lace Bralette, $99, Anine Bing

This is the very same Kendall Jenner black bralette. Cut from delicate lace, its adjustable straps and an adjustable back closure allow for unrestricted comfort with a luxury finish.

Luxe Athleisure Pieces

Athletic wear just keeps on coming, whether on the designer runways or from your favorite yoga workout brand. If you don’t want to take up a sport, just dress the part. One favorite steals from the classic golfer’s wardrobe.

Tory Sport Tech Knit Ribbed Sweater, $185, torysport

Sporty stripes harken back to classic Seventies style. This wrinkle-resistant, ribbed sweater holds its shape on a long vacation flight just as much as on the golf links. The right amount of give makes it the ideal travel companion.

Not Your Mother’s Khakis

Khakis are cool again thanks to some serious 2017 updating. Flattering styles are equal parts elegant and utilitarian.

Alexander McQueen Patch-Pocket Trousers, $280, matchesfashion.com

These khaki-green trousers are cut from durable cotton-twill and feature cropped slim legs that work well with both heels and flats. An adjustable drawstring waist and capacious patch pockets highlight these mid-rise, straight-leg pants.
