What do we love most about summer? The days get longer, and brighter, and hotter, in more ways than one. Summer provides us the chance to live more than we have in finicky months of winter and early spring.
It’s also the perfect time for mixing and matching various textures like sensual satin, or practical linen. Pairing a delicately ribbed top with a satin midi skirt sends the message that you’re into all things comfy and cute.
Don’t forget that there are patterned shirts just begging to come out of hibernation and enjoy the fun and sun that has become synonymous with this time of year. During the long months of summer, we often inadvertently reach for clothing items that allow us to just breathe. Here’s where that linen comes in, and cutesy sandals too.

The graphic tee love doesn’t have to stop with a crop-top though, a band tee paired with nautical pinstripe pants is summer dream come true. And, if you’d really like to channel the relaxed aesthetic of summer, there’s (probably) nothing more iconic–or sensible, than a worn-in pair of overalls. Feeling a little weary about rocking the overall trend? Fear not, try pairing them with a pastel relaxed fit shirt, it doesn’t get more effortless than that.
So there’s a lot to adore about the soft exhale of the summer season. Humid kisses from crushes, and golden hour lit laughter with friends. But perhaps what we cherish most can’t be explained, only felt. Maybe each year what we really fall in love with, is the promise of possibility that summer brings. Possibilities in our closets, in our relationships, and in our lives.
