Baby Doll Dresses

Oh baby, what a playful look this is! Baby doll dresses were made popular by Cecilie Bahnsen says Marie Claire. They have been sported in various volumes, shapes and sizes! Often paired with some sort of chunky boot to really edge up the look, this combo is an iconic staple for being effortless and cool all at the same time.

Bucket Hats

A hat that was initially invented by Irish farmers to protect themselves from the rain is now the perfect addition to any outfit to give it just a little extra stylistic flare. They have been seen in pastels, neon’s and various textures. They can be the statement piece to any outfit or can simply follow along with the color palette for a monochromatic look. Either way, we dig em!

Bralettes & Blazers

Bralettes have always been essential for any summer outfit but this summer they have an even bigger impact than usual! A bralette under a blazer can be dressed up or down and creates a perfect casual, sexy look. Bralettes have also been seen under cardigans and even worn over shirts! How inventive!

Puff Sleeves

Who knew an 80’s inspired silhouette would be all the rave this summer? Puff sleeves are back! Similar to the baby doll dress, they come in various volumes, shapes and sizes. In regard to this specific top, sheer fabric is also a hit this summer, being both playful and sensual all at the same time. Puff sleeves are a fun accent that can turn any normal top into a statement piece!
