High and Mighty

-------


High-rise shorts are big for the summer (as seen here), and rib-brushing waistlines don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon—see the Resort collections of Stefano Pilato at YSL, Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel, and Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci for proof. Pair these dark denim kick-flares from MiH with sturdy wedges, and you’ll be the height of fashion from now until next year. Click the image to shop.

Acid Trip

-------

One of the strongest color stories from Resort has been super-hot yellows, but you don’t have to sport an eye-searing cocktail dress à la Roksanda Illincic to get in on the trend. If you prefer neutrals to brights, we recommend taking a page from Phoebe Philo’s playbook by adding a pop of fluoro to your minimalist attire via a sleek statement bag. Philo’s drool-worthy new neon Classic bag won’t be out for a while, but this gem-shaped box clutch from Hervé Léger isn’t a half-bad substitute. And as Tommy Ton’s pics from Milan can attest, tiny clutches are making a big splash this summer. Click the image to shop.

The Cat’s Meow

-------

A-line shifts, sherbet palettes, lower heels—what decade is this again? The sixties have been a reference point for designers from Marc Jacobs to Phillip Lim for Resort, but you don’t have to trade in your so-2010 shorts for a mod mini to try the trend. These classic cat’s-eye sunglasses from Dior are an easy way to bring a bit of midcentury chic to your wardrobe without looking overtly retro. Click the image to shop.

Let The Bright One In

-------

We consider ourselves true New Yorkers in that we tend to favor neutrals (OK, mostly black) over any other shade, but the bright splashes of color in the recent Resort collections are really inspiring us. We aren’t ready for a hot lilac and fuchsia ensemble à la YSL just yet, but an eye-popping Pucci print isn’t a bad place to start. The yellow, blue, and white pattern on this silk scarf will stand out against our favorite blacks and whites without looking flashy. Click the image to shop.

Not Fade Away

-------

White denim may be a summer staple right up there with sandals and straw sun hats, but this year we’re thinking of going the pale washed-out blue route, à la the jeans we saw at the Chanel Cruise show. We’ll pair Surface to Air‘s slouchy boyfriend style with Breton stripes now and with combat boots and a nubby sweater come fall. Click the image to shop.
