HEAD TO TOE CITY LOOK

And just in time for Memorial Day, summer weather is upon us (pesky humidity included).

Whether you’re traveling to an exotic metropolis across the globe or just taking a “staycation” in Central Park, your city look needs to be cute, functional for walking, and heat/humidity resistant. Try patterned high-waist shorts as a nice alternative to a dress or skirt. You won’t have to worry about them riding up and accidently exposing your nether-regions to strangers. We love the retro ’60s print of this pair by Zara. Pair with a boxy, slightly cropped lace top for a modern-day Audrey Hepburn sort of vibe. For modesty, wear a bralette or camisole underneath. We love a flat, lace-up espadrille with this look, like this suede style by Tomas Maier or this version by Soludos. But if showers are in the forecast, forego the espadrilles in favor of some rubber-soled canvas sneakers like these Supergas. And don’t forget to stash a waterproof pullover anorak in your designer backpack.

HEAD TO TOE BEACH LOOK

Not totally bikini ready for Memorial Day? No problem!

This halter neck maillot by Marysia is so pretty and chic no one will notice your covered-up midsection. Since it will probably be too cool to actually swim, you’ll want a great casual dress to throw on when lounging around or going to town. This little white dress by Madewell is such a find. We love the boho red embroidery and white tassel ties at the neck. Pair with flat, lace-up sandals and a straw boater hat and tote for an easy look. We love this fun Anya Hindmarch bag, but there are plenty of inexpensive straw totes that will give you the same feel like this or this one. Don’t forget to slather on the sunscreen. For those who hate the oil slick some lotions can leave behind on your face, we’re obsessed with Skinceuticals Physical Matte UV Defense sunscreen. The lightly tinted formula is like a cross between a BB Cream and a primer. It’s great alone or under makeup. Pair with Fresh Sugar Lip treatment in nude.

HEAD TO TOE COUNTRY LOOK

A weekend in the country calls for easy pieces that’ll keep you covered from day to night.

Since the weather isn’t too hot this week, we love the idea of throwing on a one-piece. Effortless in simplicity, the jumpsuit is an entire outfit in one piece. We love this one from Ulla Johnson (Note: this label is making quite a rad comeback). Throw on a lightweight layer like this kimono style jacket. Finish the look off with a cool headband and you’re good to go.

THE SUMMER HAIR FIX

The braid is still the best answer to bad hair days. So whether you’re looking for the perfect foil for summer humidity or dirty hair, just head over to the Braid Bar at the John Barrett Salon. For $50, they’ll create any style braid. And they comb through it so it doesn’t look too overdone or fussy. You can walk in with dry hair or get your hair blown out and then do the braid. If you want it to last, just sleep with your head wrapped in a silk scarfFor those of you with your own braiding skills, try Oscar Blandi’s braid paste, which makes braiding clean, slippery hair easier, or Redken’s Braid Aid helps tame the layers.
