Light Layers

Wearing: Dress AritziaSimilar | Shirt Aritzia | Boots Chloe (On Sale)

The best way to get more use out of your favorite pieces is to layer them. Slip dresses, which are very on trend for this summer, make a great base for tons of layering options. For a warmer day a button-up tee worn open is a great way to layer while still keeping cool.

When In Doubt..

Wearing: Jeans L'Agence | Top Aritzia | Bralette Aritzia | Shoes Chanel

When in doubt, all black always works. With this all black look I really like how the open-knit sweater adds a nice break in the monochromatic outfit. I love this top layered over a bralette because it allows you to see the pattern better. Plus, with a high neck and high waisted jeans it shows a bit of skin without being over the top. But, of course, for more modesty you can easily layer a black tank under an open knit as well.

Off The Shoulder

Wearing: Jeans Citizens of Humanity | Top Aritzia | Sneakers 10 Crosby Derek Lam

Off the shoulder tops will definitely be a go-to all summer long. They're so easy to wear and they make any outfit look cooler. I love the casual feel of this blue one which makes for the perfect weekend look when paired with jeans and sneakers. And of course an off the shoulder top gives you the perfect opportunity to accessorize with a choker (or a bandana too). Shop off the shoulder tops below:

I normally don't wear a lot of prints but when I saw this top I knew I needed to have it. Unfortunately, it seems to now be sold out, but shop other tropical prints below:

Wearing: Dress TheorySimilar | Slip Commando | Sneakers Nike

I bought this top last spring and while I'm in love with it I've had some trouble styling it because of how long it is. But I recently bought the perfect little black slip, which works so well layered under the shirt. The slip allows me to wear the top as a dress instead, giving it a whole new life.

Jacket and Jeans

Wearing: Jeans Citizens of Humanity | Tee Aritzia, Similar | Jacket MajeSimilar | Bandana Free People | Sneakers Nike

I'm pretty sure I would have been very happy as a rebellious teen boy in the 50's because a leather jacket and jeans is my go-to look. It's a simple look that always works, and this spring add a bandana for a little something extra. I love this silk one from Free People because it has four different colored squares so you can change the color of it depending on what your wearing.

The Bomb

Wearing: Jeans Citizens of Humanity | Tank Twenty | Bomber Urban Outfitters | Shoes Sam Edelman

The way to make any outfit better this spring is definitely to add a statement bomber jacket. I love this one from Urban Outfitters with floral embroidery. It's perfect thrown over a simple tank and jeans. And to take things up another notch I added lace-up heels (which I borrowed from my sister).
