Shop the Look: Catch Some Waves

Catch some waves

We’re expecting an extra-hot and humid New York summer, so there’s no time like the present to get a few vacations on the books. What are we packing for the July 4th holiday? A whole lot of tie-dye, one of our favorite trends this season. When done in watery blue hues, the laid-back print makes us feel cooler already. From elevated T-shirts to statement sandals, the trend practically demands a beachy locale, and we’re happy to oblige. Shop our favorite pieces by Madewell, J.Crew, Proenza Schouler, and more, below.

Shop The Look: Eyelet Awakening

Eyelet

Though we’re hesitant to use the word “normcore,” our summer shopping list consists of pure, easy basics. Think straight-leg white jeans, crisp popover shirts, and the perfect flat sandal. Simplicity is the move. However, we’re also the first to admit that summer presents an opportunity to have fun with your wardrobe—who can say no to the bold colors, lush prints, and embellished bags to accent those sleek warm weather wares? Everyone needs balance in their lives, so for simple basics with a little something extra, we’re inspired by girly, retro eyelet styles. From a navy broderie skirt to a must-have laser-cut bag, the sweet design is a fun and youthful departure from the expected. Shop our favorite eyelet pieces by Alaia, MICHAEL Michael Kors, Madewell, and more, below.

1. MICHAEL Michael Kors eyelet-cotton top, $100, available at net-a-porter.com

Marina’s Must-Haves: Madewell’s Poncho Dress

-------

MadewellMy mind is in vacation mode—all I want to think about is summer days at the beach. For my seaside getaways, I like my outfits to be as simple as can be, and oversize cotton pieces are a must. Madewell’s white poncho dress will be in my suitcase for my next trip. Its graphic details make it city-appropriate as well, for those hot days in June. At the moment, summer seems but a dream, but as someone who likes to plan ahead, I’ll be ordering Madewell’s frock this week.

Chung Change

-------

Alexa Chung already has a lot of jobs on her résumé these days, including model, British Fashion Council ambassador, television host, and British Vogue contributing editor, and soon she might be adding “designer” to the list. Though she has collaborated on design projects with labels like Madewell, the British style star confirmed this morning that she is looking to launch her own clothing line. In the latest issue of Numéro magazine, Chung reportedly said she has “nothing to lose” by starting her own label. “In this current era of celebrity no one believes you actually design the stuff anyway, even though I sketch everything myself,” she explains. “So if it sucks I can say I had nothing to do with it, and if it’s really good I can say ‘Here are the drawings, it’s all my own work!’ ” Chung hasn’t revealed any details about the line yet, but we’re expecting to see the usual Chung signatures—plenty of floral prints, vintage-inspired numbers, and lots of layering pieces.
