This week's outlook just got a little brighter! InStyle Senior Market Editor Dana Avidan-Cohn shared some of her top summer essentials with the Associated Press. Here, she dishes on how to stay cool in the summer heat.
High on the list: Avidan-Cohn (above) is keen on mellow ocean blues paired with crisp white separates.
For starters, summer fashion isn't always about slouchy separates. Pair together a few crisp pieces and your look can be polished enough for a trip to the yacht club or evening cocktails with friends. Particularly, pick pieces with subtle but quirky details like a culotte-length white trouser, milky blue shorts with a sweet scalloped hem, and Birkenstocks, re-imagined in fresh white.
Meanwhile, the longer length of this swingy denim chambray skirt (above) channels retro Audrey Hepburn–meets–Roman Holiday vibes. But when balanced with a stack of gold rings and a casual sleeveless white tee, the outfit feels fresher and more modern with just enough bohème to reflect the season's laid-back attitude. Now all you need as an accessory is a killer (but safely earned) tan!
