SELF PORTRAIT

A go-to for cool, unique, and clever designs that don’t feel overly formal. Designer Han Chong designed his new Pre-Fall collection, which is in store now, with warm summer days and nights in mind. Many of his dresses have clever cut-outs and breathable details for those hot and humid August temperatures.

With 3-D floral appliqués, graphic lace and open-knit details, the collection is crafty, sporty, and just the right amount of “girly.”

This summer’s color is one of our favorite spicy shades.
All things red is what we are seeing in the forecast. Crimson, scarlet, poppy, we’ve got them all. And don’t be afraid to mix your reds up; the spectrum of reds will enhance your look (especially when you neutralize it down with white or khaki).

   The look we have here features a Trina Turk top in their ‘torch’ color. The voluminous sleeve and pleating detail are giving us 70’s vibes, while the simple silk is perfect for the daytime weather. The top is partnered with a garment that we completely stand behind, a denim skirt! This one is from a new brand for Julian Gold called ‘McGuire Denim,’ and we are smitten. Mixing with the torch top, we added a little bit of edge with one of our favorites – a Valentino ‘Rockstud’ clutch in red.
And finally, to keep the shoe grounded, we went for a dressed down look with an Alice + Olivia ‘Penny’ laser-cut sandal in bone. The simple pendant from Camille jewelry is a little extra bit of flare, partnered with a simple blacker choker necklace of the same designer – the gold tones really enhance the brightness of the red.
