This season, we’re making up for the neutrals that have been so prevalent lately — not just with bright colors, but also with patterns, patterns, and more patterns. From florals to animal prints and leafy greens to fruits, this summer we really are what we wear.
As is typical, I spent my weekend on Boston’s Newbury Street. These high waisted leopard-print shorts, accented with sailor-like buttons, caught my eye immediately — if there’s a print you can wear year-round, it’s leopard print. Pair it with a neutral shade, otherwise you’ll go from fierce to just plain savage. Available at Urban Outfitters, $49.
Bring the vacation to you! If you’re not afraid to stand out (or possibly blend in with the foliage?), this DSQUARED2 Lauwren dress is definitely an attention-grabber. Available on shopbop.com, $835.
The watercolor-like appearance of this silk Preen blouse captures all the colors of a summer sunset in one shirt. And with so many hues, this top goes with everything. Wear it with a nude skirt, white wide-legged pants or black skinny jeans. Available on net-a-porter.com, $1,310.
Pinkberry’s not the only thing you can top off with fresh fruit! These Jeffrey Campbell Fruitbowl platforms complement those white sundresses that are trending this summer. Available on shopnastygal.com, $158.
