A playful lace top and classic denim shorts are easy summer separates that can be mixed and matched a myriad of ways. When styled with a floral-print bomber, it becomes the perfect look for brunch with the girls.

Backyard BBQ

For some outdoor fun in the sun, don a silk camisole with your tried-and-true denim shorts. Fashion a lightweight button-down around your waist, which you can throw on for extra warmth as the sun goes down.

Happy Hour

Feign a romper with slinky, striped separates—the lightweight silk promises to keep you cool in case the night ends in dancing. For added model-off-duty vibes, throw a bomber jacket over your shoulders.


A few key accessories will keep you covered for all-day affairs. Keep a cool summer scarf and colorful sunnies at arm's length, and stow your essentials in a crossbody bag.
