Fresh Picks: Mega Metallics

Precious metals aren’t just great on jewelry! This season, we’re seeing rich metallic details popping up in everything from footwear to swimwear—and of course, accessories.

The best part about these lustrous pieces is they read as neutrals, making them surprisingly versatile for adding a dose of shine and glam to even the most laidback looks.

Inspired By: Hot Ticket

If you didn’t quite make it to Indio these past couple of weekends, no worries, festival season is still in full effect. Not only is the season of music fests heating up, so is the weather! That’s right, time to put those cutoff shorts on heavy rotation!

Today’s street style inspiration is a lovely example of how to infuse some girly style while still looking (and staying) effortlessly cool well into the heat of summer.

Inspired By: Fest in Show

As festival season continues to rage on, so does our obsession over one rather polarizing trend in denim: overalls. Before you write this off as just another “fad”, we’d like to point out how utterly comfy and adorable these are (particularly shortalls) for frolicking around during those hot summer festivals!

Here, we see it paired with a breezy long cardigan wrap and some classic Chuck Taylors for a decisively ‘90s vibe. 

Check out our take on this carefree look below:
