Gucci’s Resort ’15 collection played with pastels and florals in a decidedly Italian way. Read: they made preppy look cool. So naturally, we can’t wait to channel the gorgeous collection all summer long. We’re particularly in love with this look, pairing a periwinkle-blue striped and embellished sweater with floral bermuda shorts, bouncy hair, a grommet belt and a fresh, pink lip. Copy their winning formula for work, brunch and beyond with the affordable finds below.
Floral Collared Shirt
Miss Selfridge Angel-Sleeve Rose Shirt, $49
Start with a version in a light color. This will also look fantastic tucked into a high-waisted midi-skirt.
Oasis Striped Jumper, $62
Next, add a pale blue and white striped sweater, thick enough to ward off the office air conditioning.
Floral Bermuda Shorts
Miss Selfridge Floral Shorts, $61
We love shorts as an alternative to skirts in the summer. We're especially fond of longer, bermuda shorts as in the Gucci look above. Keep them in the same color family as your floral shirt and striped sweater.
Pinko Eyelet Belt, $146
Cut the sweetness of your pastel florals and preppy stripes by adding a grommet belt.
Cat Eye Sunglasses
Marc by Marc Jacobs Cat Eye Sunglasses, $98
A dose of Italian glamour courtesy of these cat eye sunglasses ties the look together.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Color in Skyline Pink, $7
Finish with a swipe of sheer, pink lip color (and don't forget to reapply after your espresso).
