As you may remember, last Thursday I hosted a summer dress event at the Aventura Mall Gap. The pros at Elle.com styled some fun summer looks to inspire the evening. I had a great time, shopping with readers and customers, styling fun summer looks, and offering tips on how to wear some of summer’s trickier trends. I fueled up with yummy espresso shots from Nespresso, nibbled on delish cupcakes from Lux & Cupcakes, and made my very own peony petal paperweight at the DIY station. Here are just a few of the tips I shared:
To Keep a Maxi Modern…
…pair it with a pair of flat sandals.
…tie on a chambray shirt. (Like I did!)
…accessorize with some cool and unexpected jewels.
How to Wear Culottes…
…pair with a slouchy tank or tee.
…dress it up by pairing with some height; a wedge or a heel and throwing on a jacket or blazer
…or keep it casual with an easy slip on sneaker or a flat sandal.
…stay away from a fitted top; it’ll look dated
How to Style Overalls…
…pair with a tank or tee that has a higher neck.
…style with a sleeveless button down (buttoned up all the way)
…add a wedge for some height or pair it with a flat sandal or sneaker to keep it casual.
If you came out and shopped with me, thank you so much! I hope you had as much fun as I did! If you missed it, make sure you come out next time. In the meantime, check out some of my favorite pieces available in-stores now and check out some of my social media fun from the evening!
