Printed One-Pieces: Rediscovering the Allure of the One-Piece
After years of favoring bikinis, the allure of the one-piece is making a comeback. Influenced by the recent Pamela Anderson renaissance, our editors are embracing the one-piece silhouette again. The collaboration between Vilebrequin and artists Mickalene Thomas and Racquel Chevremont (Deux Femmes Noires) brings together art and fashion, offering a unique print that showcases one’s love for both style and art.
Raffia Touches: Embracing Natural Textures
Raffia accessories are set to take center stage this season. From woven bags to footwear, the editors are embracing the textural appeal of raffia. The natural aesthetic of these pieces adds a touch of bohemian elegance to any summer ensemble.
Delicate Mesh Flats: The Perfect Blend of Comfort and Style
For a sporty yet feminine touch, the editors are opting for mesh ballet flats. Combining the classic elegance of ballet flats with the breathability and lightweight feel of mesh, these shoes offer both comfort and style for the warmer months.
A Retro Aesthetic: Channeling the Spirit of Pucci and Missoni
Embracing a retro aesthetic is a summer tradition for many, and our editors are no exception. The vibrant prints and patterns of Emilio Pucci and Missoni are perennial favorites. With the recent appointment of Camille Miceli as creative director at Pucci, the brand has taken on a refreshed and more minimalist approach to its iconic prints.
Summer-in-the-City Sandals: Chic and Practical Footwear
When it comes to summer footwear, closed-toe sandals are the editors’ top choice. Whether it’s a fisherman sandal, a cutout design, or a backless loafer, these sandals offer the perfect balance of style and comfort for city dwellers. They are versatile enough to wear for various summer occasions, from traveling to office meetings or casual outings.
Asymmetrical Silhouettes: Adding Unexpected Flair
Flowy and asymmetrical silhouettes are captivating the editors’ attention this summer. These pieces exude an effortless charm while maintaining a touch of uniqueness. From an Acne Studios wrap skirt for a beach barbeque to an off-the-shoulder silk maxidress by Ferragamo for more formal affairs, these asymmetrical styles are sure to make a statement.
Colorful Ballerinas: A Return to Classic Flats
The love for flats is making a comeback, inspired by the early 2000s era of Marc by Marc Jacobs. The editors are drawn to ballerina flats with a twist—pointed or square toes that offer a fresh and unconventional touch to the classic silhouette.
Dip-Dye Skirts: Effortless Bohemian Vibes
For a laid-back summer attitude, dip-dye skirts are the go-to choice. The editors have fallen in love with the carefree vibe of these skirts, combining a modest midi-length silhouette with eye-catching and vibrant color dye. These skirts effortlessly transition from casual daytime outings to relaxed weekend beach escapes.
Elevated Wedges: Elevating Summer Style
Elevated wedges have become a standout trend, and the editors are excited to embrace their updated appeal. With designs from The Attico, Alaïa, Bottega Veneta, and Gia Borghini, these modern takes on the classic silhouette provide a sophisticated lift to any summer ensemble.
Tennis Whites: A Classic Summer Look
White-on-white outfits have long been a summer staple, and the editors are planning to embrace this timeless trend. Vintage tennis dresses add a touch of sporty elegance to summer wardrobes, capturing the essence of leisurely days and outdoor activities.
Fresh Textures: Embracing Raffia in Unexpected Ways
While raffia totes have become a familiar sight, the editors are taking it a step further by incorporating raffia-adorned footwear into their summer ensembles. The combination of flowing linen sets and texturally captivating raffia footwear creates a festive and visually intriguing look.
White Poplin Pieces: Crisp and Chic Summer Style
Crisp white shirting is making a comeback, and the editors are excited to embrace this trend. Whether it’s pairing a white shirt with a sleek denim skirt or opting for a patchwork-style Dodo Bar Or denim skirt for a more unexpected twist, white poplin pieces offer a sophisticated yet effortless summer look.
