There’s something about the sun shining and the warm breeze that makes summer the time to re-evaluate your wardrobe staples, highlighting your favorite basics, your must-have statement pieces, and your summer necessities, like sunglasses and a hat.
Who wants to spend hours getting ready in the morning when the sun is streaming through your windows and everyone is out enjoying the heat? Not me! Throwing on jeans and a simple tee is a great alternative to rummaging through your overflowing closet for your wildest showstopper pieces. Relaxing outside with friends calls for an equally relaxing outfit, with just one small caveat: simple and relaxed clothing is fine, but pairing it with compliment-worthy accessories makes it even better!
It’s all about the eyewear in the Summer! Bold shades take the attention from your clothing to your face, so why not add a pair of boho-inspired chandelier earrings!
Your feet are in luck as well because this Summer some of the cutest shoes have been flat slip-on sandals or mules! Check out the StyleChat app to find out where you can buy all the hot items featured in the above look!

Some days we can spend an hour in our closets figuring out what to wear, which denim color, which top, which pair of shoes, which pair of earrings, the list goes on and on. Some days however, we want our trusted jeans to come to our rescue; we want to be able to slide on our favorite pair in two seconds and look incredible. So which jeans should we choose?
An article featured on WhoWhatWear consults some of the best fashion experts to get their take on their most reliable pairs of jeans, and trust me you’re going to love the results!
First off, we have light-wash skinny jeans with rips on the knees. The light blue wash with the rips will give you a casual look that you’ll love! Pair them with your favorite t-shirt or a button-down shirt, and you’ll have an outfit that will keep you cute and comfortable whether you’re sitting in class or running to the grocery store! Not sure where to find a stylish pair of jeans like this? Check out Nordstrom’s Joe’s jeans featured below! They even give you a slight bit of fading to make you look très chic!
Next denim obsession on the list is a pair of high-waisted black jeans designed by AG. These fitted cotton jeans will give you that perfect fall look. It’s time to transition from your summer white jeans into a pair of bold black jeans! The high waist will keep you comfortable so that you’re not constantly pulling up your jeans every time you sit! Pair these jeans with a sweater for a comfy night in, or with a dressy top and chunky jewelry for a night out with friends!
Last but not least, we have a style of denim jeans that are one of my personal favorites: boyfriend jeans. Some people may associate boyfriend jeans with really baggy jeans, but that doesn’t have to be the case! The best boyfriend jeans are the ones that are relaxed, skinny jeans, meaning they follow the curves of your body without conforming too tightly to your leg. The relaxed fit gives you the perfect relaxed look for you to enjoy! It’s time to be stylish and comfortable at the same time.
