Check Into Summer Style
(aka Statement Shoes)
Pastels and Bold Colors
Don’t make your accessories compete with one another. Go with one great focal point, in this case, shoes, which completely stand out. Bridgette’s hat, tote, and luggage are neutral.
When checking in, make an impression and a grand statement! Bridgette arrives looking
stylish in her white short suit (J Crew), dusty rose tank, (Free People from Marshalls) Lucite plastic bracelet (Buffalo Exchange) and showstopper lemonade heeled sandals (Katy Perry from Dillard’s). She keeps cool and displays attitude with a pastel blush hat (San Diego Hat Company from Anthropologie), beige tote (Calvin Klein from Dillard’s) and glossy white luggage (Delsey from T.J. Maxx).
When wearing strappy shoes, opt for a thin flesh-tone color. It will flatter your legs rather than compete.
Bridgette relaxes poolside in a cutout dusty blue maillot (Vince Camuto), and striped cover-up (Becca, both from Dillard’s) and gladiator heeled sandals (Aldo). Blue, wide brim, straw hat (vintage I Magnin from Tom’s Fine Furniture & Collectables). Mirrored blue shades protect her beautiful eyes (Jessica Simpson from TJ Maxx).
Never underestimate the power of looking good at the gym — it works out!
Bridgette’s sleek, comfortable workout wear (Athleta) provides freedom of movement and style. A bright hair accessory keeps her locks off her face and her eyes on the prize.
Vertical dressing — wearing the same color on the top and bottom — adds length and slims the body.
Bridgette’s calling all the shots in her bold, red power suit (Ann Taylor), accented with trim detail on the shorts. Gray linen strappy-heeled sandals complement the suit (Vince Camuto from Dillard’s). Using her anything-but-ordinary reading glasses (Morgan Optique from Anthropologie) she can take a break from her corporate duties to read In the Company of Women.
When wearing a cover-up, keep the style theme consistent with the swimsuit. For example, you would not wear a ruffled floral print suit with this edgy plastic cover-up.
While making an entrance by the pool, Bridgette can’t help but get attention with this one-of-a-kind plastic cover wrap (Buffalo Exchange). Hiding underneath is a bold cobalt blue bikini (Ralph Lauren from Dillard’s). Mirrored blue shades finish the look (Jessica Simpson from TJMaxx).
Bridgette spritzes a trace of Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum (from Dillard’s) before a big date night. She is adorned in a beautiful vintage-inspired kimono (Floreal from Anthropologie) and Eisenberg Ice vintage earrings (private collection).
When wearing an ombre-style dress, choose the same color shoe. It will be most flattering and give a polished look.
Steven, Bridgette’s boyfriend, adores her and knows he is the luckiest man alive! She seizes his gaze with a beautiful white ombre sequined dress (Dress the Population from Dillard’s). Cinderella silver shoes complete her outfit with sparkle and fun. (BCBG Generation from Dillard’s).
