High-waisted shorts are bigger than ever, and they’re not going away come fall. Paired with tights, they are the perfect replacement for a skirt (especially on a windy day). As most have waistline detailing, it’s important to wear a shirt tucked in so as not to create bulk but instead accentuate curves. If you tend to be biggest in the middle, opt for a pair without any detailing (bow, pleats, ties, etc) in the very front.
Here are seven great styles for summer into fall…

I tend to wear a lot of solids, and not because I don’t love prints but because I am incredibly picky. To me the perfect print is a balance of soft femininity and artful sophistication. I hate overly girly, unless paired with something more edgy, and I hate overly bright prints that stand out too much. With that said, here are seven gorgeous floral blouses for spring.

When I think of summer dressing, I think of light and airy, with touches of gold and sea blues. I adore the breeziness of this Joie dress, especially when contrasted with this colorful Ikat bag. The best outfits tend to be a mix of high and low, vintage and new. (Note: “high” to me is a $250 dress. Anything couture I’ll probably just call “the unaffordable” or “the dream on”.)
