Where is Summer?  Last year I feel like at this point we were 2 months deep in our summer season.  Sadly this year, I think it’s the absolute worst weather I’ve lived through…so onward and upward…and time to think, live and breathe summer…and in doing so, let’s think Summer Fashions.  I’ll let ETCETERA guide us through this…

Our insider’s guide to what’s new! Key trends. Quick fixes. The ‘Ultimate’ pieces you absolutely have-to-have. Designed for the girls of summer with gutsy, unfussy style. Clothes to live in, travel in, look and feel amazing in. Easy to slip on, over and into so you always have something cool to wear.

1.  INTRODUCING THE ‘ULTIMATES’
The awesome pieces you absolutely have to-have. Our new checklist of fashion power points. The hottest pieces in town. Done in black and white to go with everything.

2.  ESSENTIAL SUMMER JACKETS

Hip little numbers like nothing already in the closet. Giving whatever you wear them with a trendy shot of chic.

4.  FRESH PRINTS

Menswear-inspired foulards; bold tropicals,  paisleys, ikats, florals; leopards, tigers & a snake along skinny lines.

5.  COOL PATTERNS

Florals and geometrics are done as  washouts & burnouts for the coolest patterns ever.

6.  EFFORTLESS SHAPES

A little slouchy but not over-the-top.  We’re still infatuated with the ‘wedge’, silos that cocoon, deep-drop sleeves.

7.  TUNIC LENGTHS

Rethinking proportion are longer tanks,  sweaters, shirts; plus dresses doing  double duty over skinny pants.

8.  TRIBAL OVERTONES

Ethnic elements, artisan details,  global inspiration; appliqué, beading &  embroidery of decidedly bohemian charm.

9.  TAILORED BRIGHTS

Our exclusive shades, inspired by crayon  box colors, transform familiar shapes into fashion trends.

    I’ll be VERY glad when some consistently warmer weather arrives . . .putting on a sweatshirt to work in the yard in June is just WRONG!! And . . . Hawks v Bruins — YES!!

    Lots of inspiration here, thanks. Enjoying all the orange now that I’m in TN Volunteers land. I love the early pic with the white and black and pop of red, sharp and I can do that! All about summer, it’s been in 80’s and fairly wet here in Knox which is fine with me. Pink capris and white shirt along with some Poor man margaritas (2 lite beers over ice, limeade concentrate can, 1/2 can tequila, 2 T. quantro or OJ, serve over lots of ice with crushed limes) and chips/hummus and I am that sun kissed glowing summer girl…twice so far! Enjoy June Terry.

    Also just noticed the categories on your blog sidebar, nice! Went and took another look at your point of view on Capris. Agree.
