Sweet Styling Tips: Summer Neutrals

No time seems better than the summer to find those neutrals in your closet and wear them all together.  There is something about combining breezy whites and gauzy creams that creates an instantly chic look that helps soothe the summer heat.  Read on for tips and inspirations on how to wear the look. 

When it comes to summer neutrals, remember three things: keep it classic, keep it simple and keep it head-to-toe!

A metallic, open weave cardigan is perfect for layering when in chilly air-conditioned rooms, or spending a balmy night by the ocean.

You just can't beat a nice, fairly loose white tank top.

A Panama hat helps block those harmful rays.

Scarves in the summer?  Why yes, if it is soft and cool as silk like this one.

Comfy chinos assist in summer relaxing.

Never leave the house without a cool pair of sunglasses.

A nice flat sandal will keep you in comfort all day, but still look night time ready with a bit of gilding.

Wondering about a must-have for summer?  A chain link tortoise necklace is it!

And lastly, a structured white satchel to hold all your essentials.

  1. Love this and want to wear it... I enjoy all the bright colors this season, but a classic all-neutral outfit always works in my book!

  2. I so love light neutrals in the summer, especially layered--so pretty! And of course a sweet white bag makes the whole thing perfection.
