The Cool-Girl Styling Trick For Any Summer Event

Share

We love getting invitations. You’re throwing a pool party? We’ll be there! Organizing a backyard brunch? Sign us up! Hosting sunset cocktails? Count us in! Choosing an event-appropriate outfit every time is a little less of a no-brainer. This season, instead of blending into the sea of denim cutoffs and flirty sundresses we’re opting for sharp, matching sets. Whether the event calls for casual, cocktail or polished attire, there is a coordinated ensemble for every event on your summer calendar. Here, we show you three of the best.

Pool Party

A lightweight crochet set is equal parts bohemian and fashion forward. Complete the casual look with oversize sunglasses, flat sandals and a bright purse.
