Dress Smarter, Not Harder This Summer


Style coordinates for any occasion Every woman deserves to be the best dressed version of themselves--no matter the season, time of day, or occasion. The rising temperatures of summer coupled with our super-woman lifestyles can sometimes lead us into a wardrobe funk where we often choose comfort over style.

The maxi dress is a primary example of the comfort zone that we bind ourselves to for the summer. It has officially become the socially acceptable feminine replica of a sweat suit.

Mid-way through summer, we have exchanged these vows with her that restricts us from wearing anything else outside the maxi dress family. The maxi dress is an amazing wardrobe invention, but must we make this long-lasting commitment to her for the whole summer?

Comfort and less meticulousness may be the goal during these warm months, but let us all aim to do it with flair and style. With the season’s new trend of coordinates, we can enjoy effortless fashion. These matching sets allow our wardrobe to do the work for us. It’s the new, clever way to get dressed and still look fabulous without thinking too much about it.


There seems to be a coordinate suitable for almost every place and setting. They give new meaning to the word “outfit.”

1. Try wearing a matching floral top and trouser coordinate for work. This matching set can be paired with a contrasting color of statement through earrings or a bracelet. Don’t forget to sport a pair of your favorite solid-color pumps or flats to neutralize the look.

2. If you are stumped on what to wear on a date or a night out on the town with the girls, opt for a solid color coordinate that consists of a structured collarless blazer and shorts. These identical separates offer a slice of classic style with just enough sprinkle of sexy. You can dress this outfit up with a massive clutch and an exotic pair of heels that is sure to make everyone stare.

3. Are you headed to a BBQ? Don’t worry! Pair a crop top racer-back and tube skirt coordinate to shine. Now is the perfect weather to bare a little midriff. Try pairing this coordinate with a pair of wedge sandals and a tribal statement necklace.

4. On those days when you’re running errands, choose a loose-fitting breathable kimono and high-waisted short coordinate, coupled with a classic tank. Pair these with a nice oxford shoe. Running errands never looked this incredible!
