What Inspired Nichole’s Look:
“I live in distressed shorts all summer long and these tom girl shorts are in high rotation. They’re lightweight with ample stretch making them comfortable for all sorts of fun summer activities. I was drawn to this particular fit because they strike the perfect balance between regular shorts and the relaxed boyfriend style, which I’ve found to be universally flattering. Since my style is pretty casual, I decided to pair them with a favorite plaid button down, but they also look great with a plain white tee or light sweater!”How to Wear the Tomgirl Short with Vanilla Extract

How to Wear the Patterned Button Down Shirt

Our Patterned Button Down Shirt will make the perfect addition to your Summer style. Solids are always a must, but fun patterns are sure to give your wardrobe the refresher it needs.
Chimed from Nx Style pairs his favorite floral button down with a bright skinny pant and neutral sneakers for a relaxed, yet refined look.

How to Wear the Patterned Button Down Shirt What Inspired Chimed’s Look:
“The main inspiration for the look was the relaxing summer weekend where the weather is perfect for short sleeve button down and rolled up pants. The shirt sleeve button down is not only comfortable but it has a vibrating essence of relaxation thanks to its summery floral pattern. This would be type of outfit I’d wear after work to set myself free from suit & tie.”

How to Style a Jumpsuit

Lightweight jumpsuits are a must for the summer. With their soft woven fabric and cinched silhouette, they’re both effortless and chic.

Andrea from Belair Beautiful paired our Racerback Jumpsuit with the Brooke Strappy Back Pushup Bra for a stroll around town.

How to Style a Jumpsuit

Meet Andrea:
“I started Belair Beautiful as my diary, my fashion book, my make up tips, my life and love advice, but most of all my art and my truth.”

What Inspired Andrea’s Look:
“It’s officially Summer in Miami and I’m not gonna lie and say that I’ve been taking that too well. It has been so close to the 100’s that most days I’m just content by staying home, working on the computer with air conditioning. When I do leave the house, I make sure that I am comfortable and most importantly, that I am wearing a breathable and light material. Aerie was awesome enough to send me this gorgeous Racerback Jumpsuit which ended up being perfect for a walk around town. I headed over a local museum and roamed around the streets of downtown Miami, all while in this chic and comfortable outfit!”

“When you have a top that is bound to show your bra and you can’t go braless, what better way to pair it than with a really cute bra/bralette? It’s a perfect way to add a bit of color without being too loud. I added the Aerie Brooke Strappy Back Pushup Bra.

What Inspired Jessica and Cathy’s Look:
“For our recent trip to Miami, Jessica and myself knew we wanted swimsuit that was bold, and still stylish, as we headed to the beach on our mini vacation. The open back on my one-piece suit was fun and unexpected and left me feeling not too covered up while in the sun! Jessica’s pink romper and fun tropical print bikini fit right in with the fun style of South Beach!”
