Tips & Trends, The Influentials

Update your closet with our four recommended staples. They won’t be here forever, so sport them while they’re hot and don’t spend a bundle. None of our featured four costs more than $40.

Take our word for it. A darling cross-body bag, petite layered necklace, patterned pant and mod pair of heels will transform ho-hum summer outfits.


1. Gem Session

Accessorize your summer outfits with a gem-adorned, layered necklace. Pair your minimalist metal with a casual outfit or a night-on-the-town look. Adjust the length to accommodate your neckline.

Gem Session

  • Marsala t-shirt: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Necklace: Francesca’s

We paired our gold chains with solids to really enhance the pendants. For V-neck shirts, alter your necklace length. HOW TO: To layer like a pro, the first dainty chain falls perpendicular to your collarbone, and the other chains lie along the breastbone.

Gem Session

  • Crochet kimono: Retro 101
  • Red romper: H&M
  • Wedges: Pitaya


2. Body Language

Versatile cross-bodies are such a fashion craze that you can find them in a range of fun styles. Prevent the frustrating purse change-out. Just simplify what you carry from day to night with this lightweight, spacious cross-body.

Body Language

  • Striped dress: Forever 21
  • Flats: Target
  • Cross body: Francesca’s

We found a simple, chic textured cross-body to pair with these casual outfits. The neutral blush hue complements any color. This bag also features nifty hooks and an adaptable strap to transform it into a clutch.

HOW TO: Finding the perfect length for your cross-body is tricky. When shopping for yours, make sure it hits around the hip. This will allow for maximum comfort and accessibility.

Body Language

  • Blue blouse: Old Navy
  • Army green shorts: Urban Outfitters
  • Sandals: Target


3. Pattern Party

Add a little pattern to your daily look. Switch out those denim blues for a palazzo or harem pant. We paired these prints with easy pocket T-shirts. Throw on a charming necklace, a cute pair of sandals and you are ready for the day!

Body Language

  • Blue t-shirt: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Necklace: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Palazzo pants: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Wedges: DSW

Feeling a little daunted by this new style? HOW TO: If you have slender or shorter legs, try the harem pant. The cinched bottoms are figure forming, yet airy. For longer legs, try the palazzo. These flowy, high-waisted pants create retro bell-bottom shape. Both are fun, summer pants.

Pattern Party

  • Harem pants: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Blush t-shirt: American Eagle Outfitters
  • Strappy sandals: DSW
  • Crystal necklace: New Age People


4. Shoe Behavior

Change your shoe game this summer with these Jane heels from Target. Wear them with skinny jeans, a festive sundress or a simple jumpsuit — and then transition into fall. The open peephole creates a summer feel, while the closed body makes them appropriate for cooler temps.
