The heat index is rising by the day and maintaining style while being comfortable is constantly on my mind. Whether you’re heading on a summer getaway or beating the heat at home, keep your cool while amping up your wardrobe with my warm weather fashion and beauty essentials.
MARIE FRANCE VAN DAMME MAXI DRESSES AND COVERUPS
My go-to outfit in the summer has got to be maxi dresses. They’re easy, stylish and comfortable even on the hottest days – just throw the dress on with your favorite sunglasses and flat sandals and you’re good to go, or dress them up at night with stacks of gold jewelry and heels.
Nothing screams summer to me like Missoni. The iconic pattern mixed with bold colors make for the perfect ensemble be it by the pool or on the go.
To say I’m obsessed with this new label – Self Portrait from designer Han Chong is an understatement. His beautiful dresses that combine the femininity of lace and sheer panels with boyish details and sEtructured silhouettes have been a conversation starter each time I’ve worn them, so be prepared to answer a lot of “Who makes your dress?”
EUGENIA KIM STRAW HATS
This tongue in cheek hat from Eugenia Kim has been a holiday favorite. When I have this on, you know it’s #vacationmode!
Swimsuits are not just for the water. Paired with a pair of shorts or a maxi skirt, these versatile pieces make an even more attractive statement on dry land. Dolce & Gabbana, Marysia, Zimmermann and Lisa Marie Fernandez are my swimwear picks this season. All available at Net-a-Porter!
DIOR TECHONOLOGIC SUNGGLASSES
THE essential frames of the season. I’ve been wearing these Dior Technologic sunglasses in both the gold and silver mirrored versions virtually every single day.
ROGER VIVIER GLADIATOR MASK SANDALS
Gladiator sandals have been all the rage this season, and no one did it better than Roger Viver‘s high-shine statement sandals.
Gold jewelry are ubiquitous in the summer as they go so well with a tan! I love these architectural pieces by Tod’s.
MONOGRAM STRAW BAG
A recent discovery of mine, these monogrammed baskets come in 3 sizes and are such a chic, unique accessory for the beach!
