SummerStStyle-Shorts&Tank

Keeping it simple with a black tank and brown bag, she shows that faded jean shorts aren’t going anywhere. A summer favorite, she knows how to rock it with gladiator sandals and some shades to keep her looking cool and sophisticated even in the hot summer sun.

SummerStStyle-SuarezSisters

The Suarez sisters bring boho to Brooklyn. Don’t be scared of clashing patterns, as long as you’re doing them in like, neutral hues.

SummerStStyle-ThandoHadebe

Thando Hadebe shows us a great way to wear a pair of overalls …. with a printed shirt, simple sandals, and a smile.

SummerStStyle-Chevron

Sometimes it’s hard to look both sexy and cute, but this outfit accomplishes just that! The chevron halter top shows her entire back, but isn’t overly sexy paired with some black shorts, a small clutch, and casual sandals.

SummerStStyle-Dots&Denim

With an oversized denim vest and slick shades, this stylish civilian knows how to keep a collared dress casual and proves denim looks good with polka dots! Mix a dotted dress with a denim vest for a grunge yet girly look.
