Summertime and the livin’ is easy–well, most of the time anyway. Our schedules seem to get busier and busier and planning your next summer getaway calls for a lot of preparation. Picking the right pieces based on your destination, activities, and nailing the regional style can be tricky. We chatted with locals to get the inside scoop on what to wear and the best places to check out while you’re visiting some of our favorite big cities.

San Francisco

San Francisco exudes the laid-back California style of L.A., but with fall-like temperatures sticking around all year, it’s essential to include layers when packing for SF. A lightweight chambray jacket is a perfect solution for warding off the breeze. To fit in with the urban chic style of the locals, add a pop of neon and standout sneakers for a look that’s both trendy and comfortable for climbing to the top of all those tall hills.

Locals Recommend:

Marin Headlands:  Just minutes from downtown, this national park is an incredible way to see the Golden Gate Bridge. With hidden beaches and trails, it’s also perfect for those seeking a little bit of outdoor adventure. Hike or ride a bike and don’t forget to pack some snacks to enjoy while you’re taking in all of the views.

Foreign Cinema: Located in the Mission District, this farm-to-table restaurant is a hidden gem that can’t be missed. If you go at night, you will be able to catch a movie on their patio projector while you enjoy their everchanging menu. It truly is a magical destination for enjoying food, cocktails, and film.

New York

NYC may be known for trying out all of the latest and boldest trends, but their street style is iconic for its timelessness and closet classics. If you’re planning your next summer getaway to the Big Apple, stick to the basics with fashion-forward accessories. Tuck a plain white tank into high waisted jeans and top it off with a black blazer. Finish your look with layered necklaces and a statement loafer.

Locals Recommend: 

Smorgasburg: This one is for you, foodies. It’s the largest weekly open-air food market in America! With up to 100 local vendor stands to choose from, you’ll be able to sample some of the cities best on your visit. We’ve been told that the Williamsburg location is the best. 😉

The Met Cloisters: Even though you’re in NYC, you’ll totally feel like you’ve crossed the ocean to explore Europe when visiting the Cloisters. This branch of The Met features European medieval architecture, sculptures, and gardens. It’s perfect for those seeking a quiet refuge in the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

 

summer getaway: black top

summer getaway: camo linen pants

Chicago

When you’re walking around the Windy City, you’ll look around and notice that it’s all about easy and effortless style. While fashion is at the forefront of the mind, it’s achieved through relaxed silhouettes and relatable pieces. Pack a linen jogger (they’ll keep you nice and cool) and pair them with a laid-back top and sneakers. Don’t forget a small crossbody to store all of your essentials!

Locals Recommend: 

Paradise Park: Yes, Chicago is known for its deep dish pizza, but Paradise Park is a can’t miss joint for ‘za lovers. It features an incredible patio for an atmosphere as amazing as the food. Located in the heart of the Wicker Park neighborhood, it makes it easy to walk around and spend time checking out shops like Myopic Bookstore and Gather.

Cindy’s: This place is a quintessential Chicago experience. It overlooks Millenium Park, offering great views of the iconic Bean along with delicious cocktails and food. To avoid larger crowds (and potential lengthy wait times), it’s best if you’re able to make a visit during the week.

Summer style is all about pieces that work for everything you have planned. One of the most difficult occasions to come up is a vacation. Yes, it’s super exciting to make your way to sandy shores, but trying to figure out how to fit several outfits in your suitcase can cause quite the headache. The key is easy pieces that can take you from day to night. We’ve picked a few of our favorites to help you create transitional and versatile vacation outfits.

summer style: jumpsuit

Lightweight Jumpsuit

Let us start by saying there is nothing that a great jumpsuit can’t do. It’s a one-and-done piece that looks polished and feels effortless no matter what you have planned for vacation. You’ll be able to check out local vendors and pop in cute boutiques without skipping a beat. Start the day by pairing it with sandals and a sunhat while you explore. If your evening agenda call for something more elevated, switch to wedges and a drop earring.

 

summer style: paper bag shorts

Paperbag Shorts

We are obsessing over these relaxed-fitting paper bag shorts for spending time in the sand. You can wear them with your favorite swimsuit top for some fun in the sun or pair them with a lightweight denim jacket for an on-trend happy hour ensemble. Although, we’re pretty sure every hour is happy hour while you’re on vacay. 😉

 

summer style: linen pants

Linen Pants

We’re all for packing anything and everything linen for a tropical vacation. It keeps you cool as you hit the beach and can easily be dressed up for a night away from the resort. Pair this linen pant with a breezy tank and denim jacket for a look that’s effortless and appropriate for a seaside dinner.

 

summer style: flowy cardigan

Flowy Cardigan

This cardigan hits the mark in more ways than one. Thanks to its vibrant colors and draped silhouette, it feels like a vacation-appropriate piece that you can easily layer over your evening attire. Added bonus? It’s a great option for the plane as you head to and from your destination. ✈️

 

summer style: denim jacket

Denim Jacket

Honestly, we hardly go anywhere without packing a denim jacket. It’s a fail-proof option no matter where your next vacation is planned. One with a light wash feels fresh and can easily pair with everything else in your suitcase. Don’t be afraid to go denim-on-denim and pair it with the paper bag shorts or your go-to jeans.

We’re going to let you in on a little secret: you don’t have to wear a literal flag to show your patriotic spirit this 4th of July. Instead, we suggest looks that are a little more “America the beautiful” and less “MURICA!” Here to inspire you are 5 cute outfit ideas for celebrating the 4th in style.

 

cute outfit: white blouse and denim

Red, White & New

A party on the patio calls for fun, of-the-moment details. Swap out your basic white tee for a white blouse with ruffles and pair it with denim with red racer stripes. It’s the perfect balance of sporty and sweet with a festive twist.

 

cute outfit: cami and high waisted denim

Sweet Cami + High Rise Denim

This red and blue outfit proves that you can show off your patriotism while still looking chic. Relaxed denim with a sweet camisole will keep you comfortable and cool when you’re settling in to enjoy the fireworks.

 

cute outfit: dress with denim jacket

Breezy Dress + Denim Jacket

Escape the city to enjoy a day of sunshine and swimming, with sparklers and s’mores by night. Throw a breezy dress on as a swimsuit cover-up and when you’re ready for a bonfire under the stars, layer with a lightweight denim jacket.

 

cute outfit: denim skirt with tee

Darling Denim

A denim mini is a great alternative to your go-to blue jeans. Paired with a classic tee, it’s a fail-proof combo for celebrating. Top off this backyard BBQ-appropriate look with a hat or your favorite shades so you can enjoy hours of fun in the sun.

 

cute outfit: striped tank with shorts

Simple Stripes + Sneakers

A casual tank in classic stripes is just the thing for staycation-ing, plus, it’s an easy piece you’ll reach for all summer long. Pair it with shorts and sneakers and head around town to watch the parade and explore local landmarks.

From sea to shining sea, there is a vast variety of different types of climates that influence how we get dressed each day. Deciding what to wear can become a difficult task if you’re dealing with humidity, gusty winds, or temperamental weather. Maybe even a combination of all three–looking at you, midwest 👀. Whether you live on the east coast, west coast, or somewhere in between, our stylists have a few hacks for dressing for your climate.

what to wear: west coast

West Coast

If there is one thing the west coast is known for, it’s their effortless style. But the climates from the coast of Washington to sunny southern California are vastly different meaning you’ll need an outfit that works from forests to palm trees. A t-shirt and blue jeans is a surefire way to make sure you’re prepared for whatever the weather has in store. Color blocked stripes with pops of neon is an instant way to make this failproof pairing on-trend for 2019.

 

what to wear: the south

The South

Everything from dry heat and unbearable humidity spans across the southern states. When the temps reach into the hundreds, the last thing that you want to put on is something that clings and doesn’t breathe. A flowing dress crafted from either cotton or linen (both are great for hot climates) is a great solution for beating the heat. Make it modern with an eyelet lace trim and an ultra-sleek bag.

 

what to wear: midwest

Midwest

Headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, we can definitely speak from experience when it comes to dressing for the midwest. Everything from the laid-back lifestyle to constantly fluctuating temperatures impacts our outfit inspiration. When it can drop 30 degrees in one day, it’s good to have layers on hand (even in the summer). A denim jacket and floral dress is a classic combo that we can always count on.

 

what to wear: east coast

East Coast

Everything from bustling NYC to peaceful beachside towns lines the east coast. Taking a stroll on the city streets or sandy shores calls for a look that does it all. Comfortable chinos in a coral hue will move with you no matter what you have on your agenda. Finish the look with a lightweight pullover sweater that you can easily throw on when you catch a cool breeze from the ocean.

Fitness graphic tees are having a major moment. You can’t swing a kettlebell at the gym without hitting someone wearing a cheesy #fitspo message emblazoned across their chest. (Please don’t actually hit someone with a kettlebell.) Instead, get in on the statement-making trend with non-lame fitness gear that inspires. Let these three motivational graphic tees do the talking for you.

 

fitness graphic tees: getting my fit together

Real Talk

Okay sass, we see you. Fitness graphic tees are the perfect way to show off your spunky personality (and get a good laugh). Made exclusively for Wantable, this tank from Interval delivers on-trend styling as well a powerful statement. Each time you wear it you’ll feel balanced, energized and totally ready to tackle your next workout.

 

fitness graphic tees: no excuses

Get in Gear

With a top this good, there are no excuses for skipping the gym. If you struggle to find the motivation for your workout, a graphic tank with a powerful message is the perfect way to get going. Every time you get dressed in your fitness gear, you’ll have a reminder of how much your hard work pays off. Inspired by their brand mission, Glyder designed this tank to encourage women to find both their inner and outer strength.

 

fitness graphic tees: energy love light

Spread Positivity

Make positivity your personal mantra both in and out of the gym. No matter what your workout routine consists of, sporting an inspirational message on your fitness gear will spread positivity to those around you. Designed by Spiritual Gangster, this tank was made with love in Los Angeles. With each purchase, Spiritual Gangster donates proceeds to provide a meal to a person in need. A tank that looks good and does good–yes, please!

Nothing says summer like hanging up fresh new pieces in your closet. You’ll always have your staples like crisp whites, lightweight linens, and pretty patterns, but longer hemlines, softer prints, and sporty streetwear are taking over this season. Here’s a complete guide to the emerging trends and essential summer clothes you won’t be able to live without. Okay, that may be a tad dramatic, but seriously, they’re that good.

 

summer clothes: bike shorts

Bike Shorts

Honestly, we should just stop right here (but we won’t). Bike shorts are the #1 must-have piece of the season and for good reason. They’re easily the most versatile piece you could add to your summer wardrobe. Sure, you can style them with a t-shirt and a denim jacket, but you can also pair them with a flowy tunic or oversized button-up for a more elevated (but equally fashion-forward) look.

 

summer clothes: animal print

Animal Print

If you’re not already, you’re about to become an animal print addict. This summer, all (cat) eyes are on all of the amazing variations of leopard print. Spotted in the urban jungle plastered practically on everything under the sun–skirts, shoes, tops, dresses– it’s safe to say that any leopard printed piece you invest in will be on frequent rotation until fall. No matter how you decide to walk on the wild side, this fierce feline pattern just might become your new favorite neutral.

 

summer clothes: matching sets

summer clothes: matching sets

Athleisure Sets

Matching sets are no longer just for hitting the gym. It’s an effortless outfit formula (seriously, it doesn’t get much easier than this) that looks insanely chic and hits peak comfort level. Having a coordinating set handy in your closet ensures packing for all of your summer vacays is a breeze. It’s a cozy travel outfit and you can mix and match the individual pieces with other items in your carry on once you’ve arrived.

 

summer clothes: bermuda shorts

Bermuda Shorts

See ya later, short shorts. Sensible shorts are a fuss-free trend that just so happens to be, well, everywhere this summer. The longer length might seem intimidating for those on the shorter side, but you can easily cuff them to customize the length to your height. Full disclosure: you may be tempted to play Kokomo by the Beach Boys every time you wear them (Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama…).

 

summer clothes: midi dress

Midi Length

Shorts aren’t the only item getting a little extra length this season. Dresses and skirts in a midi length are taking over both in street style and formal wear. Whether you have a wedding (or 10) coming up or a beachside vacation, reach for a midi instead of a maxi or a mini. You won’t have to fuss over the perfect in-between length and you’ll look like you just borrowed an outfit from an Instagram influencer. Not to mention, the more conservative hemline makes it an office-friendly trend, too. We love a piece that does it all.

 

summer clothes: statement sleeves

Statement Sleeves

Everything from one-shoulder tops and flutter sleeves to puffed shoulders and off-the-shoulder numbers is taking over this summer. It’s an easy way to take a familiar piece like a t-shirt or a tank and freshen it up. This romantic trend is perfectly suited for elevating your street style or adding a sassy element to your next night out. Rule of thumb: don’t be afraid to go a little bit extra. The bigger the statement, the better!

 

summer clothes: vintage floral

Vintage Florals

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times–florals are trending (and forever will be). There’s something inherently timeless about florals but we love the fresh new ways they’re constantly being reinvented. This season, it’s vintage-inspired prints that are taking over. Oversized tropical prints are being swapped for dainty bouquets and romantic florals for a softer take on this classic pattern. Try out pieces with roses, daisies or wildflowers on flowing silhouettes to totally nail the look.

So, you’re a mom. You tackle the day without skipping a beat, manage your family’s ever-changing schedules, and somehow still find time to sleep (maybe–or was that just a blink?). No matter what your day consists of, you shouldn’t be restricted to outdated ideas of what “mom style” looks like. We’ve gathered four mom-approved outfits that go beyond the stereotypes and instantly make you a style expert.

 

mom outfits: windbreaker jacket

You’re the Wind(breaker) Beneath My Wings

Consider this our ode to the windbreaker comeback. Undoubtedly the style star of the season, this ’80s and ’90s inspired trend will instantly revamp your casual streetwear. Whether you’re taking the kiddos on a walk or heading out for a day of errands, just pair it with relaxed denim and a basic tank (or tee) for a style-savvy ensemble.

 

mom outfits: black blazer

Trail Blazer

We’ve gotta hand it to you, moms. The amount of things that you’re able to accomplish in a day is astounding. Heading from drop-off to the office to a PTO meeting calls for an outfit that can do it all. Pair a colorful chino with a boldly printed top and a black blazer for an insanely stylish work-to-wherever look.

 

mom outfits: t shirt dress

Eat. Sleep. Caffeinate. Repeat.

There are definitely moments when it feels like you just can’t catch a break (we’ve all been there). The last thing you want to worry about is what outfit you’re going to wear–especially if you also have little ones you have to get dressed. A simple t-shirt dress with a classic denim jacket is the perfect (and extremely comfortable) combo for those days where it’s hard to change out of your jammies.

 

mom outfits: moto jacket

Not a Regular Moto Jacket. A Cool Moto Jacket.

Okay, all moto jackets are cool in our opinion, but this pastel color really packs a punch. Finish your look with a printed blouse and clean black denim. Much like all of the kick-butt moms running the world, this ensemble exudes an unstoppable attitude. Concert outfit? Check. Dinner date? Check. Basically, it’s the mom outfit that does it all (just like you!).

If there’s one piece we all have in our closets–and if you don’t you really should–it’s a striped sweater. It’s a timeless piece that never goes out of style, effortlessly fits any aesthetic and easily works 365 days a year. However, reaching for the same piece over and over can be a bit of a double-edged sword. We love that it’s a fail-proof option, but it can be a bit tiresome to try and reinvent the wheel with the same piece over and over. To help you combat those what-to-wear blues, we’re here to help you style this wardrobe essential in fresh new ways.

 

striped sweater: denim skirt

Cool for the Summer

Pair your striped sweater with a denim skirt for the perfect summer-ready outfit. We love that this particular sweater has a wider neckline so that you can wear it slightly off the shoulder for a fully laid-back look. The real winner: its featherweight fabric. It ensures you won’t overheat even in rising temps.

 

striped sweater: trouser

Slay the Work Day

A track pant is a perfect way to give your tired trouser a modern update. Paired with the bold red stripes, your work-ready ensemble will feel anything but boring. Trust us, if you’re wearing these killer pieces, you’ll strut into the office ready to take on whatever the day has in store for you.

 

striped sweater: tied around waist

All Tied Up

Who said you had to wear your striped sweater as a top? Tie it around your waist or throw it over your shoulders for our favorite way to style this piece. It feels playful, carefree and totally unexpected. This option doubles as fashion and function on those days when you need a last minute layer. Two looks in one? Yes, please.

Style inspiration can come from anywhere around you. Walking down the street, scrolling on Instagram, or eyeing your coworker’s cute outfit in the break room (hey, we’ve all done it). But if we had to pick our No. 1 go-to for all things fashion, it would have to be celebrities. It turns out, we aren’t the only ones that feel this way. As our stylists get to know you–our amazing customers–they’ve found that there are four A-list celebrities in particular that inspire your wardrobe on a regular basis and we can totally understand why. Take a peek below to find out which stars are stealing the spotlight in street style.

 

Meghan Markle

Meghan’s Style

The actor-turned-Duchess (#goals) has undoubtedly become one of the most famous style icons of our time. Her oh-so-chic wardrobe consisting of timeless pieces, minimal accessories and envy-inducing shoes makes it almost impossible to argue otherwise. While we can’t give you a palace, we can give you closet staples that will help you exude her classy style. Opt for ultra-tailored silhouettes, subtle prints, and polished designs to channel your inner royalty.

 

Blake Lively

Blake’s Style

We bow down to you, Blake. Her modern menswear-inspired looks are way too good not to steal. We admire her ability to push the boundaries and challenge gender norms when it comes to fashion. Have you seen her pantsuits lately?! Seriously stunning. To achieve her sophisticated and daring style, pair your favorite blazer with a casual tee and trendy pair of blue jeans. We love the tuxedo stripe running down the side to fully nail her aesthetic.

 

Joanna Gaines

Joanna’s Style

To be frank, we’re still mourning the loss of Fixer Upper (thank goodness for reruns). Not only do we miss the amazing reveals, but we also miss seeing which outfits Joanna would wear each episode (and going on a frantic Google search to try and find them). Her looks are approachable and, better yet, easily achievable. If you want to give your wardrobe a Gaine’s-style renovation, reach for some relaxed denim, a t-shirt and a utility jacket for the finishing touch. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

 

America Ferrera

America’s Style

Actress, activist, and all-around amazing woman America Ferrera exudes elegance in everything that she does, including her fashion choices. Whether she’s strutting the red carpet or owning it as a producer on set, you can often find her flattering her gorgeous hourglass figure with waist-accentuating details and v-necklines. To emulate her slightly-retro style, try out jumpsuits (with a belt or tie, of course), pencil skirts, feminine details and playful patterns.

The start of the spring season is all about new beginnings. Whether you’re setting new goals or simply looking to revive your routine, your workout uniform also deserves a refresh. After all, prepping your closet for spring isn’t just about refreshing your street style–it’s important to show your workout wardrobe some love, too! Get inspired to get moving by Glyder’s latest collection of fashion-forward pieces in soft spring colors.

spring colors: pullover hoodie

Fresh Piece: Lightweight Thermal Pullover

This pullover combines everything we love into one easy piece–a lightweight yet cozy thermal fabric, a relaxed hood and cuffed sleeves. The sandy color is the neutral we never knew we needed in our fitness wardrobes (but are so happy it’s a thing).

 

Revive Your Routine: Yoga

Yoga is incredibly beneficial no matter where you’re at in your fitness journey. Instructors often offer modifications for more challenging poses and the judgment-free zone allows you to try new things or rest in child’s pose whenever you need it. This pullover is a great piece for yoga whether you’re trying out a class or doing a 10-minute practice at home. Throw it on for savasana or over your sports bra as you head out for errands.

 

spring colors: sports bra

Fresh Piece: Icy Blue Sports Bra

This icy-blue hue featured throughout the collection is our new favorite neutral. It’s basically the chambray of fitness fashion. AKA it pairs with everything. And just when we thought it couldn’t possibly get any better, the strappy back detail swoops in to prove us wrong (if this is what it feels like to be wrong we never want to be right).

 

Revive Your Routine: HIIT

If you’re a busy bee with an endless to-do list, give high-intensity interval training a try this spring. This incredibly versatile workout is easy to customize and adjust for beginners and advanced trainers alike. Designed for high impact activities, this sports bra is the perfect piece to wear to HIIT class. You’ll feel supported in this fashion-forward piece from start to finish.

Fresh Piece: Tonal Print 7/8 Legging

If you’re tired of your basic black leggings, these are the fail-proof solution. Their neutral print is subtle enough to pair with just about everything so you’ll never feel restricted when it comes to figuring out what to wear.

 

Revive Your Routine: Running

The best part about running is you can pretty much do it anytime, anywhere so you’ll never be restricted by your schedule or location. Plus, you can take things at your own pace and take walk breaks when needed to help you get started. With a hidden pocket in the waistband, these leggings are a no-brainer when you’re headed out for a run.

 

spring colors: tank top

Fresh Piece: Modern Floral Tank

A laser-cut floral design paired with one of our favorite spring colors makes this tank a must-have piece this season. The shape lightly skims your silhouette for a comfortable fit that will stay in place throughout your workout.

 

Revive Your Routine: Barre

Barre is a great workout if you’re looking to switch things up. Inspired by ballet, pilates, yoga and strength training, you definitely won’t get bored with the ever-changing (and super fun) classes. As an added bonus, the pretty laser-cut design on this tank will provide extra breathability when you’re holding chair pose for an extra 8 count.

 

spring colors: pocket tee

Fresh Piece: Classic Pocket Tee

The best part about this versatile tee is that it works just as well for your workout wardrobe as it does for your casual street style. The relaxed boyfriend silhouette feels perfectly undone and won’t restrict you as you move throughout your day.

 

Revive Your Routine: Walking

f you’re trying to jumpstart a more active lifestyle, walking is a great place to start. It has so many health benefits and serves as a great foundation to build upon when you’re ready to increase intensity. Just doing 30 minutes a day can make an impact! You can even turn it into a social outing by walking to brunch with friends. This tee will effortlessly transition from your stroll to sitting on the patio.
