Top 5 Summer Style Items Of The Week

by Emily Green · July 8, 2011

    One of the reasons to love summer is the fashion. Colors, open-toed shoes, shorts and weather permitting the option to show some skin make getting dressed more fun. With these limited warm days (okay, L.A. is nice year-round but I was wearing jeans and sweaters up until 2 weeks ago), make your outfit choices count. Here are our top 5 Summer Style Items of the Week.

    H&M Bikini top $14.95, bottoms 12.95

    Not boring but subtle prints are your friend. This also come in burgundy but I prefer the earthy, sun-baked palette of the cream version here.  A simple bikini bottom won't create strange shapes if you wear them under shorts like ties and other embellishments tend to and the top has that optional neck strap you can untie to avoid funky tan lines.

    Tribal Twist Maxi Dress $58

    This dress is adorable and totally appropriate for day and night. It's sexy without showing too much skin and the tribal print will stand out without making you look like you suffer from COAS (Center Of Attention Syndrome).

    illesteva "Leonard" Sunglasses in Sand $165

    Classic. Tasteful. No logos. Slightly masculine but not butch. Ashley Olsen would totally wear them. And so should you.

    Rodarte for Opening Ceremony "Pom Pom" Sandals in Moss $680 $204!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi, did you see that markdown?? These Rodarte for OC sandals are so funky without being obnoxious or owning your whole look so they can be worn with just about anything.

    Sparkle & Fade Knit Shorts $39

    Such cute shorts for and night. All you need's a plain white/black T or tank top and you're good to go. Going to Urban after work to get me some.
