summer denim trends

If you’ve already sworn off denim for the summer, we urge you to reconsider! We’re wearing our favorite fabric all season long, keeping our summer denim light and fresh with cropped lengths and breezy distressing. Here are the styles defining our weekend uniform and where we’re wearing them next.

 

Summer Denim Trend: Fitted Boyfriend

Fitted Boyfriend

This destructed boyfriend style was made for Saturday morning farmers markets. A floral tank and gladiator sandals add to the breezy vibe. Grab a straw sunhat and your favorite shades, and you’re ready for prime produce picking.

 

 

Summer Denim Trend: Light Wash

Light Wash

Keep your cool in this faded, light-reflecting wash as you savor sunsets and sangria on the patio. Go full-on femme and opt for flirty pieces like an off the shoulder embroidered top, sky-high wedges, and bright tasseled accessories.

 

 

 Summer Denim Trend: Distressed + Raw Hem

Distressed + Raw Hem

If you’re ready to let loose, this cotton and lyocell blend skinny is the lightweight choice for a Friday night rooftop bar hop. A deep V top, open-toed booties and a bold lip turn this look into a stunner. Top with a silky bomber on breezier evenings.

 

Summer Denim Trend: Straight Leg Crop

Straight Leg Crop

Hit your gameday look out of the park in this released hem crop; the subtle ombre effect scores major style points. Keep the rest of your outfit pared down with a white T-shirt, baseball cap, old-school high tops, and a dark wash denim jacket for layering.

Urban Expressions bags

If a luxury vegan handbag line that’s both Vegan.org and PETA certified sounds too good to be true, then it’s about time we introduced you to Urban Expressions. Founded in 2005 by two conscious entrepreneurs who wanted to revolutionize the industry with high-quality, animal-friendly handbags, they’ve crafted a line that’s fashion-forward yet rooted in enduring style. Their mantra? “Carry yourself with confidence, wear your passion with pride, and keep moving forward.” Explore a few of our favorite Urban Expressions styles:

Eden Wallet

Cooper

Color-blocking in this season’s hottest colors gives the Cooper wallet’s envelope silhouette a minimalist vibe, and a burnished gold tip lends a mod, upscale touch.

 

Brooklyn Clutch

Brooklyn

The Brooklyn clutch’s envelope-style front flap is perfect for day-to-night, and oversized tassels give a subtle nod to boho style. This versatile style also includes a detachable crossbody chain strap.

 

Eden Crossbody

Eden

Sleek, contoured stitching and long zipper pulls elevate the everyday Eden crossbody. An adjustable side zip gusset and front flap pocket add additional storage space to this small but mighty style.

 

Sheena Crossbody

Sheena

The Sheena crossbody’s diamond quilting, interwoven chain strap, and vintage-inspired turn lock make this style a chic, understated classic and your new go-to for any occasion.

 

Holland Hobo

Holland

Varied textures, such as marbled vegan leather, diamond perforation, and encased chain details, give the slender-strapped Holland hobo understated richness.

summer desk to drinks happy hour

Patio season is here, and we’re not wasting a moment of that sweet sunshine on a wardrobe change. We’ve gathered three summer workday essentials and styled them for your on-the-go work/play days. These all-day outfits will take you from the office to happy hour in a snap.

 

Tencel Utility Pant

Must-Have Piece: Tencel Utility Pant

If you haven’t yet been introduced to breathable, silky-soft-yet-strong Tencel (aka lyocell), then you aren’t truly ready for summer. It’s less prone to wrinkling than cotton and has better moisture absorption ability than silk. This Tencel utility pant is perfect for casual Fridays and less formal work environments and looks fresh and preppy with a front-tucked button down. The satiny bomber that’s perfect for your frigid conference room can be peeled off for happy hour. Just roll up your sleeves, and you’re ready to relax with a beverage.

 

Pairs Well With: a glass of dry rosé

 

Floral Pencil Skirt

Must-Have Piece: Floral Pencil Skirt

A neutral floral pencil skirt is your new best friend when it comes to easy summer mixing and matching. This abstract print is particularly appropriate for summer weather and full of personality. If your office dress code allows for bare shoulders, take full advantage! The beauty of a neutral print is you can pair it with literally any color top. We’re loving shades of pink from blush to deep magenta. Be sure to keep a scarf handy for unpredictable office thermostats.

 

Pairs Well With: a fruity red sangria

 

Striped Bodycon Dress

Must-Have Piece: Striped Bodycon Dress

Beat the heat by baring a little skin in a classic black-and-white striped bodycon dress. Keep in mind: it’s essential to choose a style that leaves something to the imagination. A high neckline and architectural side tucking keep this option office-appropriate. Take this look from simple to edgy with a peplum moto jacket instead of the typical blazer and add accessories with attitude. Swap your daytime heels or ballet flats for a pair of clean, white sneakers if you’re headed to a casual setting.

 

Pairs Well With: a spicy jalapeño margarita

spring to summer transition style

Temperatures are rising and the office AC is on full blast. Between the glory of mother nature and the marvel of modern cooling, negotiating workday style and comfort can be tricky business. Thankfully, stylist Noelle is up to the task, giving us three fresh and easy layered work looks to rock from 9-5 all summer long.

Mix Master

 

Be a Mix Master

Mix style influences for an effortless update; the key is to choose polished pieces with clean lines. Try a preppy, riding-inspired blazer with modern high-waisted trousers and a brightly colored sleeveless shirt. Yellow and chartreuse are my personal favorites this season and look fantastic with any shade of gray.

 

Embrace the Light

 

Embrace the Light

Spring neutrals should be fresh and light, not somber. I’m ditching head-to-toe black for a chic combination of camel, taupe, and white. A perforated or laser cut jacket is the perfect bridge between summer sun and office chill. Complete this minimal look with a matte red lip and killer shades.

 

Let it Flow

 

Let it Flow

Your black blazer can be relied on to add instant polish year-round. A drape-front tuxedo cut is my go-to. Get into the summer spirit by pairing it with a breezy dress in a bold floral print or a saturated solid color like cobalt. Pile on the boho accessories and add strappy black wedge sandals.

national parks to visit this summer

As the days get longer, we have summer adventure on our minds. If you’re also feeling the urge to unplug and explore, it’s time to plan a semi-local escape to one of our country’s most beautiful and geographically diverse locations. With popular national parks like the Grand Canyon and Yosemite bringing in millions of visitors each year, avoid the crowds and escape to the peaceful, unspoiled beauty of these under-the-radar park destinations. Check out our tips for what to pack and what to do while you’re there.

Desert Road

Lake Meredith National Recreation Area: Oasis on the High Plains

If the road is calling, roll down the windows and crank up the tunes as you travel the iconic Route 66 between Chicago and Santa Monica. Near its midway point, just 36 miles north of Amarillo, TX, lies oasis-like Lake Meredith. Explore dramatic 200-foot canyons and hidden coves, providing respite from the dry, windswept grasslands above.

Things to do: Enjoy swimming, canoeing, or kayaking on the lake. Get out and explore the local trails, whether you’re hiking, horseback riding, or mountain biking. Check out seasonal ranger-led programs and special events.

Don’t forget: a bathing suit, sunscreen, insect repellent, and a hat and full-length denim for horseback riding

 

 Road-Trip-Ready Outfit

 

Seashore

Assateague Island National Seashore: Life on the Edge

Feel the sand between your toes and under your sleeping bag when you set up camp ocean-side in the Maryland district of this Atlantic barrier island. Explore sandy beaches, salt marshes, maritime forests, and coastal bays, recreated daily by ocean wind and waves.

Things to do: Spend the day swimming, lounging in the sand, collecting shells, hiking, horseback riding, and participating in ranger-guided programs. In the evening, gather around the campfire for s’mores, stories, and sing-alongs.

Don’t forget: a bathing suit, sunscreen, sunglasses, insect repellent, locally purchased firewood, and your sing-along instrument of choice

 

 Campfire Comfy Outfit

 

Volcanic Lake

Lassen Volcanic National Park: Explore the Undiscovered

Grab your camera to capture the scenic views and hydrothermal curiosities of northern California’s lesser-known volcanic park. Explore meadows freckled with wildflowers, clear mountain lakes, steaming fumaroles, and jagged peaks formed by past eruptions and current hot spring activity.

Things to do: Hike or tour the park by vehicle, visiting the Bumpass Hell and Sulphur Works hydrothermal areas. Take the summer parkcaching challenge or participate in a field seminar in nature photography or plein air watercolor painting.

Don’t forget: sunscreen, binoculars for bird watching, insect repellent, a camera, and a notebook to channel your inner John Muir

straight-leg denim

Spring calls for foundational pieces you can turn to, no matter the weather. For stylist Lorelle, on-trend denim is essential. While we often see one “it” silhouette each season, this spring anything goes. Lorelle gives us the scoop on the many ways she’s wearing her personal favorite: straight-leg denim.

Straight-Leg Denim: Girly With an Edge

Girly With an Edge

Lightweight layering is key for spring. I’ve been playing with my style this season by mixing edgier pieces with my feminine classics. Top a statement-making graphic tee with a peplum blazer for the best of both worlds. Cuffed, distressed denim keeps things casual, or you can choose a clean, black pair for a more polished look. A red lip is also a must.

 

 

 Straight-Leg Denim: All About the Details

All About the Details

If you’re looking for a more understated way to rock straight-leg denim, choose a pair with subtle detailing like a released hem. To keep the classic-with-a-twist vibe going, I wear a neutral top with a unique or on-trend detail at the neckline like this lace-up style. Keep things balanced with a statement bracelet and dainty stud earrings.

 

 

 Straight-Leg Denim: The New Neutrals

 The New Neutrals

About 90% of my wardrobe is black, white, and gray, so I add a few colorful pieces each season to keep things fresh. Blush and military green are spring’s biggest color trends, and both function really well as a livelier neutral. I’ve been swapping beige for blush and black for military green. A bomber and tee in these on-trend colors pair beautifully with a faded pair of straight-leg denim!

neutral workout gear black and white

Bold, bright colors not your thing? No problem– but that’s no excuse for boring fitness apparel. Monochromatic, geometric prints are trending, and their neutral hues make it easy to switch things up. Pair patterned pieces with your well-loved basic black, or mix and match to your heart’s content. Explore neutral workout gear that packs a punch… no neon in sight.

In-Your-Face Prints

Dial classic black and white way, way up. Bold prints have a big visual impact and show loads of personality.

Sleek panels are a striking way to add sporty dimension. Sharp angles and strategic blocks flatter every curve.

Head-to-toe white can be challenging to pull off, especially when in beast mode. Instead, choose delicate stripes.
