SUNNY & CHIC
WHY WE LOVE IT>> At some point in the season you begin to realize the asphalt at the shopping center is just short of blinding you. Not to worry, chic sunnies to the rescue! We’re totally obsessed with retro-cool round, cat eye and aviator frames.
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Round and colored frames look gorg poolside with crochet and daring swimwear. We like to style our cat eye frames with peplum and bodycon dresses. (Ya know? For the sex-kitten vibe?) And last but not least, let’s not forget the timelessly luxe aviators. They look just as cool tossed on with our wear-to-work attire as they do with our off-duty pieces.

WHY WE LOVE IT>> We love clutches with an animal print; they texturize any outfit and give it a little pop. And if it weren’t for their tiny size we’d wear them around the clock—a problem easily fixed by making them chicer and bigger! Enter our new carryall…
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Animal print gives any casual look a quick update and travels easily from the office to happy hour. Studs are glam enough for the dance floor and tame enough to go on a dinner date.

WALK IT OFF
WHY WE LOVE IT>> Minimalist black is the ruler of versatility, and metallics take any outfit from cute to wow in a snap. Combined they are invincible!
HOW TO ROCK IT>> Strappy sandals are sexy and go with just about anything. They especially elevate off-duty go-tos like denim. They also look great with citrus hues and pastels and give day dresses a powerful edge. BONUS: the platform adds two of our fave things, height and comfort.
