TAILORED WIDE LEG PANTS

Take a cue from Kate Moss and forgo basic black in favor of pastels and bold colors this Summer. Turn heads like a star and shine bright in your own favorite color pants this season. We like cool coral wide leg pants offset by a lovely polka dot blouse, perfect for the office or business meetings. Carry your look to lunch with the girls by changing into your favorite ballerina flats, or chill at the pool by switching to sandals, a straw floppy hat, unbuttoning your blouse at the bottom and tying the ends for a loose “crop top” style.

LOVELY LACE

Our other favorite “Boho chic” style this Summer is lace crochet. From ponchos, to shorts, to blouses, to dresses, this is the perfect Season to feel free and fancy in lovely lace. Dressed up or dressed down, try out Summer’s lacy style with your own pair of white ivory lace crochet palazzo pants. To avoid clashing and too much “bulk”, be sure to offset your lace wide leg bottoms with a smooth, fitted top, accentuating a small waistline. You can dress up your lace pant style with a pretty pink satin draped top  and strappy sandals for nighttime dinner and dancing. However you choose to wear your lace, you are sure to bring a touch of romance to your summer fun.
