The weather is heating up and Mad Girls everywhere are looking for the perfect pieces. If you’ve been hitting that follow button for your fave it girls, inspiration is a ruby red, heel-click away.
Gigi and Bella Hadid brought the Adidas Superstar sneaker out of the gym and into the fashion world with the athleisure street-style look, but hold up because white sneakers aren’t just for your Lululemons. They look perfect paired with everything from satin slip dresses to culottes – two other big items on our radar.
Time to strip it down because, NEWSFLASH: Lingerie isn’t just for bedroom anymore. Vintage slip dresses, satin blouses with lace inlays and lace bralette tops are all on-trend and they’re the best go to whether you choose to dress up or dress down.
Los Angeles based clothing line Are You Am I (a.k.a. AYAI) features beautiful dainty silhouettes in multiple colors and styles. It’s an added plus that AYAI and the designer, Rumi Neely, have seriously aesthetically pleasing Instagram feeds.
She’s also the designer of the hottest on-trend chokers in wrapped leather, gold-chains and velvet clasps. If you love chokers and want a statement piece, Zana Bayne handcrafts beautiful, thick leather chokers with an artistic and empowering perspective on bondage.
Breezy fabrics aren’t exclusive to lingerie turned day wear. If you prefer pants and cropped denim over dresses then culottes and ankle cut, fringed denim jeans are the perfect staples for you.
Culottes are versatile. They maintain effortless style and comfort in high temperatures. Pair them with white sneaks for a sporty vibe, strappy sandals for an elevated look or just step in some must-have-mules (we’ll come back to that).
Cropped fringe jeans are easy statement pieces and give denim its much needed makeover. Clothing line 3×1 designs these shredded denim ankle jeans, which we spotted at Revolve and Shopbop.
The last major must-have are mules! Short, chunky-heeled mules in bright colors are super fun to pair with white culottes and a black tee, or if you prefer an edgier look, Sol Sana’s “Fella” mules feature a pointed leather fabric and a classic mule heel that look good with virtually anything and everything.
