Ask Ellbee ~ Summer Fashion

Dear Ellbee,

What are the must-have pieces for Spring and Summer?


Hi, Jennifer.

Hot styles for the warmer months include a myriad of options ~ everything from bra tops and lace dresses, to head-to-toe prints and scuba-inspired separates.

How you wear them is as important as what you’re wearing:  Color blocking, layering and creative pattern-mixing are back with a vengeance.

For those of us living life off the runway, some of the most wearable trends include tangerine-colored clothing, pleated tops and bottoms, and the day clutch.

Break out your lightweight denim skirts, cotton capris, chambray button-downs and white linen tunics ~ and mix in fabulous pieces like these:

To instantly update your Summer wardrobe, add a pop of cheery tangerine!

Afraid of adding bulk? Choose lightweight fabrics ~ or feature your pleats on shoes and bags.

The day clutch is oh, so easy to “pick up” this Summer.

    I really like that tangerine color! And I’m so IN on the day clutch thing!

    I love the idea of a day clutch, too. In fact, I’ve been using one for the last 4 years ~ a pretty blue Jessica Simpson envelope clutch. Easy-breezy to grab and go! And it’s especially nice to stow inside a poolside tote or travel bag.
