It’s all about the weekend during the summer, and you want a wardrobe that takes you through every fun activity. Bright sunshine and balmy sunshine turn even mundane weekend chores into a chance to show off your breezy style. Here are suggestions for three outfits that are perfect for running errands, lingering over brunch and starring as the belle of the backyard barbecue.
Lazy Day Brunch
The centerpiece of your brunch outfit could be a Farrow Daytona Dress in cobalt blue. This yummy delectable is a lightweight, unlined dress in cotton gingham that’s highlighted by a wide V-neckline tied at the bust. Three-quarter sleeves with gathered elastic detail, full skirt and short side slits complete the look.
Accessorize with small, light-weight hoop earrings in brass or silver and cat-eye sunglasses inspired by the flea markets of Berlin and the streets of New York. Slip into canvas espadrilles set on a wedge heel and wraparound ankle straps and you can head out to a tropical vacation after you’ve polished off brunch. Make sure to take along a straw bag.
Top of your list should be a swingy tank top cropped at just the right spot to hit the waistband of your jeans. Try a linen and viscose tank crafted in black and white stripes with ties at each shoulder. It’s a pretty top that’s not too sweet. Layer on an oversized cotton denim moto jacket in white for summer cool. What could be more fun than frayed wide-leg jeans in eye-popping red?
Pull the look together with a frayed-edge panama hat and scaled-down, lightweight canvas satchel trimmed with soft fringe. Choose velvet strappy sandals, and complement the feminine style with delicate accessories such as a bead necklace accented with Swarovski crystal and a 14k solid yellow gold letter ring.
Dropping by the neighborhood grocery or jogging in the park calls for a performance jacket essential for warding off unpredictable weather or air-conditioning set to iceberg. The perfect one will deliver on both function and form with a flattering fit. Underneath you’ll want an oversize tank and cropped athleisure pants. Get ready to run those errands by picking a classic sneaker.
Don’t leave your flat lens, mirrored aviator sunglasses at home; it’s going to be sunny outside. Complete your around-town style with a clean, modern bucket bag and in-ear headphones.
