The essence of summer is simplicity. Everything is easier (although not as easy as those days when I didn’t have to work!) and everyone is easygoing. That is just one of the many reasons why summer is the best season!
Understated pieces are my go-to for summer. It’s these pieces that often make the biggest statement, and the outfits today are all great examples! Every piece is cotton-rich, so they’re ultra-breathable for these hotter months. It’s these pieces that I find myself wearing over and over; I get the most mileage out of them since they’re just so versatile.
Take this black tee. This was my favorite look as we travelled back to Atlanta from North Carolina. I was so pleasantly surprised at the cut of the shirt because it looked really flattering on. It was also so comfortable for a few hours spent in the car and considering it was 96 degrees outside! If you want to dress up your cotton, try pairing it with a chic black bag and some designer heels like I did with this grey dolman dress. I adore the way the fabric falls to give you that whimsical summery vibe. And because we’re all bound to take a vacation or two, I’m all about the maxi dress. It’s so easy to slip on some sandals to run errands or fancy it up for brunch with your favorite wedges. I’m dying to try knotting this one when we’re on the beach next and using it as a cover-up!
I’m not usually one to check the tag on clothing before I make a purchase but I noticed a trend when I took the time to browse through the pieces that survived my spring cleaning. The majority of them were made of cotton. The quality is just unbeatable, not to mention it’s so easy to care for. We’ve all heard the commercials about cotton being The Fabric of Our Lives®, and, in my case, it rings true!
Fashion that functions is always in style. That’s why so many things in your closet are made of cotton. It’s breathable, durable, comfortable, and washable. It’s high end and low maintenance. So check your labels for cotton, and feel as good as you look. Learn more: TheFabricOfOurLives.com
