Leather and shorts: two words you might not typically put together for Summer. But brands like Theykens' Theory and 3.1 Phillip Lim made a pretty good case for leather shorts on their runways this season. To pull them off, we're reaching for lightweight options in relaxed styles and punchy hues. Watch on for our favorite picks. On Allison: Rebecca Taylor jacket, Line & Dot blouse.

One of our favorite things about Summer is being outside and basking in the sun. With the amazing weather and late-night sunsets, there are endless opportunities to do so. Beach days, barbecues, and evenings spent enjoying cocktails on the patio are all crucial seasonal experiences and require equally cute, Summer-ready ensembles — and Memorial Day is just the tip of the iceberg. The biggest things to be mindful of when dressing for an outdoor fete are your hemlines (in case you want to sit cross-legged on that picnic blanket), your accessories (superlong necklaces can be cumbersome), and your choice of footwear (heels sinking into grass are never a good thing). We're helping you find the perfect fashion formula by styling up three examples of what to wear when you're invited to an outdoor bash. Click through to see and shop them all now.
