Good looking neutral solids make getting dressed a snap. When I want to make the pieces feel more casual, I change the accessories. A colorful handbag in a festive pattern and a cute straw hat have long been my favorite summer accessories.
When the heat and humidity become too much for me, I reach for unstructured loose-fitting tops and pants made from a lightweight fabric with no zipper or pockets. Even if my hair is limp from perspiration, you can’t tell because the hat saves the day.
The Betmar straw roll-up hat was from Belk. The espadrille shoes are from the past year by Ralph Lauren. My friends at My Fair Lady supplied the Lior Paris “Lize” straight-leg pants and the top. The pants are here. The Clara Sunwoo short navy top is here.
