This summer may mean bikinis, shorts and bright pedicures, but it also means shedding those flannel PJ’s for something light and breezy at bedtime. Why not opt for some comfy but flirty underpinnings to vamp up those nights at home? Cute hipster bottoms. Cheeky culotte briefs. If you’re feeling daring, test drive a lacy bra under a sheer blouse for a sophisticated pajama-chic look that is completely au courant. The details: Brands include Cosabella, Elle MacPherson Intimates and Only Hearts.
It’s official, ladies: Summer is in full swing, and, with it, the season of weddings and cocktail parties. Here, a delicious collection of heels to prep you for these upcoming events, and more. Anchor a floaty sundress with a pair of nude heels, or add a bit of retro sex appeal to those cropped pants with a platform pump.
Truth: Nothing compliments a pretty pedicure like a happy pair of sandals, and there are plenty of happy pairs to choose from here. Quirky, colorblocked MARNI slingbacks. Barely there, spiked Ruthie Davis flats. One thing is for sure: No matter what you choose, you’ll be very well-heeled all summer long.
If we could go back in time, one of our first stops would be California in the sixties. From Haight-Ashbury to L.A. that was a time and place filled with excitement. And serious style. This collection from SeaVees might not get us there physically, but the brand’s cool, vintage-inspired shoes can help us get the look. From golden moccasins to classic sneakers, these must-haves are just right for summer. Groovy, man.
About SeaVees: Created by brand building experts Derek Galkin and Steven Tiller, SeaVees’ shoes are a celebration of California’s mid-century history and culture.
It wouldn’t be summer without a few key wardrobe essentials: Breezy maxi dresses. Fabulous new shades. And classic espadrilles and sandals. For shoes that work on the boardwalk or in the big city, there’s Spanish brand RAS. In bright colors like orange and aqua, these chic wedges, flats and more were made to last for many summers to come. The only problem? Which to wear first.
