summer fashion.

This summer in New York City has been an absolute style disappointment. There’s not enough experimentation. Here are some of my fave trends for summer and some tips on how to make ’em your own.  

 

 

FASHION shoesEveryone thinks white shoes are ideal for summer, any part of the body looks substantially bigger in white, just wear white underwear. Don’t fear color especially if they’re neon, prints like zebra, stripes or polka dots also make a statement. You can’t go wrong with espadrilles, moccasins or a pair of shiny dark colored oxfords. D&G did printed moccasins for Summer 2012 from Aztec to psychedelic, they’re not available until next summer, but that’s no reason to not head out and try to find some printed moccasins.

Pants should be slim not tight, fit to perfection and stop just right above the ankle, hovering the shoe. Pants in black or charcoal paired with loafers are classic, and also look good in bold colors; royal blue, orange or a kelly green with a printed shoe and a vintage tee. The length can easily transition into fall by adding fun socks. For an even more relaxed look go for a pair of drop crotch chinos.

FASHION tank topShirts, tees and tanks oh my!! Denim shirts are nice when done right. A light denim color with drop crotch chinos looks good together. Don’t match with your pants, you’ll look like a farmer. Tanks when ribbed and skintight look tacky. Try them in a looser cut, fun colors and with a pocket. A breton striped shirt is nautical inspired and you’ll look like a hot french sailor.

Tees, if there isn’t a band printed on the front, throw it away. For shirts Gingham print looks good when it’s not in the typical red and white. Leave that for the picnic table, blue is a good choice. Look for a larger print instead of the smaller traditional checkered. With grey pants, moccasins and an oversized clutch in animal skin is ideal.

  • Chino shorts are great in khakis and in bright colors. Throw on a tank or that old Nirvana tee for a bit more edge. Drop crotch shorts stray away from the traditional pair of shorts. And can move forward into fall when worn with a pair of jersey thermals slightly pulled above the ankle with combat boots.

To complete your summer look? Sunnies. Do aviators in a light olive or brown lens. Wayfarers don’t always look good on everyone. Try an oversized wayfarer shape in classic black to go with everything, Grey Ant makes a really good pair.

You should have fun with clothes. Experiment, the traditional mixed with the unexpected always looks good.
