4 Tricks to Pulling Off Summer’s Most Comfortable Trends (Without Looking Slouchy)
We’re not ashamed to say that as soon as we heard the latest trends were all about ultra-comfortable throwbacks, we ran out and bought them all (in multiples). And while we love them because they’re seemingly so easy to throw on and go, there are a few tricks for making them feel pulled together and modern. Here’s how to rock the season’s comfiest trends with style.
Pair “Dad” Sneakers With Workwear Separates
High-fashion sneakers are the best thing since bushy eyebrows. But the key to nailing the look lies in a good juxtaposition. Because these shoes are chunky, pair them with tailored trousers and a structured lady bag for a well-balanced outfit. Oh, and don’t you dare cover those ankles with socks. (Tuck ’em in the bottom of a drawer with those old photos of your 2002 pencil-thin brows.)
When Sporting a White Tee, Pay Attention to Your Bra
Boxy or fitted, crew or V-neck, one thing’s for sure: White T-shirts have become a wardrobe staple. But they can easily cross the line from cool to frumpy (or worse, scandalous) if you neglect to consider what you’re wearing underneath. Look for a bra that has smooth cups and bonded edges—like the Le Mystère Infinite Edge T-Shirt Bra. The comfortable fit means you won’t futz with it all day, and the style makes it practically disappear under your clothes for a seamless look.
Get the Look:
Use Your Belt Bag to Cinch Your Waist (Not Your Hips)
The lower the bag, the more “Disney World mom” it becomes. So scoot it up and away from your hips, making sure it’s fastened at the smallest part of your torso. Not only is it more flattering for your figure this way but it also keeps the overall look feeling fresh and not at all like you’ve actually been wearing it since 1990.
Balance the Volume of a Tent Dress
Ah, the beauty of a tent dress on a hot summer’s day. The only problem? It can quickly go from stylish to potato sack if you don’t pay attention to your accessories. When it comes to your bag, your shoes and even your hair, go sleek. A low bun, delicate slides and a dainty handbag complement the look instead of competing with it
