I am so ready for warmer weather. We get a few nice days, and then, it either rains or snows. It’s becoming unbearable. Here are a few affordable pieces that bring the crisp look of summer to a new level.
One. Mango Shift Cotton Dress ($49). This swingy shift minidress from Mango has some wonderful details. I love the pockets and side vents. If you’re looking for something knee-length, the Tory Burch Erin and this LOFT Fringe Shift are perfect for work. Plus-size? Try this Michael Kors sleeveless shift.
Three. Anne Klein Shaky Bracelet ($28). For a pop of color, add a bit of turquoise or aqua to your wardrobe. It gives your navy and blue summer pieces a boost. I also recommend coral, teal-green, and pale purple for lifting neutral hues.
Four. BR Striped Peplum Top ($74). This top has a flattering shape that looks amazing with a pencil skirt or jeans. And the chambray like hue is a versatile choice. I also like this white Worthington peplum top and this orange halter-style peplum. Plus-size ladies should try this lace Liz Claiborne top.
Five. River Island Eyelet Wrap Skirt ($70). Eyelet skirts are usually breezy and flirty, with a fuller look. However, this sleek wrap skirt makes a strong case for the eyelet pencil. If you prefer the softer shape, this Calvin Klein skirt is a steal. I also like the mermaid skirt from Cupcakes and Cashmere.
Six. Sondra Roberts Box Clutch ($88). I own a cork clutch, and I use it for every summer wedding and cocktail event. It has a great natural look and texture. For something more affordable, try this frame clutch from J.Crew Factory.
