Summer Style: Two-Piece Sets

It’s time to ditch the comfy sweaters and step into your shorts and tees because that’s right, summer is finally here.

But instead of going for the easy sundress or romper on these hot days, why not try something new?

This summer, step out of your comfort zone and try a matching two-piece set.

These sets consist of a top and bottom of matching color or print. Not only are they chic but they’re comfortable too. It’s almost as if you’re wearing high-fashion pajamas.

The best part about two piece sets is that they come in all different styles. Skirts, tank-tops, shorts, pants, some that show mid-drift and some that don’t. Along with different styles, there are many different prints too. There is a two-piece set for everyone.

Check out these looks for inspiration on how to style a two-piece set of your own!

Floor length skirts are a breezy, comfortable alternative to pants during a warm spring day. Hitting just at the tops of your feet is the perfect length, especially if you want to show off some adorable sandals! To make this look even more effortlessly cool, pair the skirt with a plain tee and knot it just at the waistline. So chic!

Rompers are always in style, but especially during the spring and summer months. They scream casual chic and go with everything from strappy heels, to wedges, to flat sandals. Pick a romper with a cute design or pattern for added edge, and pair it with an oversized tote like this one to balance the short hemline.

Fun, colorful pants become work appropriate when paired with neutral, structured elements like this chic blazer and nude shoes. Keep the pants professional by tucking in your top and ensuring that they’re well tailored – hitting just at the ankle is the perfect length. Pushing up the sleeves adds a cool edge to an already trendy look.

Bring spring into your office with a full, floral skirt like this beauty. It’s simple, sweet, and perfect for work. Keep the colors neutral for a sleek look and to allow the pretty pattern of the skirt to be the star of the show. With a full skirt like this, knee-length or midi length is the most flattering.

I love the pattern of this top; alternating stripes add trendiness and edginess while staying neutral enough for a more conservative work environment. This would also work with wide-legged pants!

Men’s Style Guide: Versatile Shoes

image

  

In this weekly segment, we will be highlighting one Men’s fashion attire or accessory. This week is all about kicking back in versatile kicks. I found this pair of vintage inspired, wing-tipped, black casual shoes while I was out doing some shopping for myself and I couldn’t pass them up. The TOMS Brogue Casual Shoe will take you anywhere from that business meeting, class presentation, first date, night in with the guys or night out on the town.

Some of the style features include the classic wingtip detailing, leather welt with cable stitching, denser EVA rubber outsole for traction, perforated insole for breathability, elastic tongue straps to wear without shoe laces, and a leather TOMS flag tongue logo.
In addition to the TOMS “One for One” promise for every purchase of shoes a child in need receives a pair, TOMS has made their own spin on “No Shave November.” Many men ditch their razors to grow out their mustaches for the month of November to raise awareness for mens prostate cancer and other mens health issues. Each pair of shoes comes with a signature mustache to show support.
This shoe is comfortable, fashionable and more importantly affordable.

This is a new item in the TOMS collection and are retailed at 109.99. This item cannot be found on the TOMS website, but can be found in stores or at Journeys.com under the men’s section.

I think these are a wise investment in a versatile, well-made, comfortable shoe. You can dress these shoes up with a pair of chinos, button-up and blazer for a daytime professional look, or you can rock a more casual look with some slim fitting jeans and a leather jacket. Either way these shoes are for sure to make heads turn.

Spring Style: How to Style a Midi Skirt

Spring has sprung here in California and that means time to show off those legs! One of the trendiest styles this spring and summer will be midi skirts, which hit between the knee and the ankle. They’re universally flattering and come in an array of shapes, styles, and patterns. Here are the best ways to style one of these adorable skirts!

This is the epitome of fresh, spring style. The midi skirt has a floral pattern and is fitted, but loose enough to create an easy, breezy look. A crop top goes perfectly with this outfit, but a tucked-in shirt would look just as cute. A sleeveless shirt works best with this midi so the pattern and length don’t overwhelm the look. Add some strappy sandals or wedges and you’ve got the perfect spring outfit!
