Thin and wispy, the Summer scarf is quite possibly the perfect accompaniment to all of your warm-weather ensembles. Our favorites? Lemlem's handmade striped renditions, DVF's bold florals, and Max Mara's silk prints are a sure way to add a pop of interest to any look — shop all of our picks.
Concert style is all about being fun and effortless, and thanks to brands like Isabel Marant, Free People, and Mara Hoffman, dressing the part is just as easy. Pair printed shorts with a draped tee and gladiator sandals for an edgy look, or go country girl cool in gingham and wooden clogs.

Summer is the time to put your legs on display, and what better way to do that than with some statement shorts? (For inspiration, check out model Hanneli Mustaparta looking cool as ever in her paisley-print pair.) The best part is that all of our picks are priced under $50, so you can afford to score more than one pair — whether you like your shorts tailored or relaxed, printed or solid, long or, well, short.
Are you a polka-dot kind of girl? We have a couple cute pairs just for you. Do you live in denim? We've got those, too. Prefer something classic you can wear for years? Done and done. You get the picture. So without further ado, get your gams into adorable (and affordable) shorts when you click on.
There's no reason why you should sacrifice your hard-earned cash for style, and to prove our point, we found 50 irresistible, easy, breezy Summer dresses all under $50! Our favorites include ASOS's bold prints, Mango's bright whites, and Anthropologie's whimsical cuts — shop our picks below.
Olga Kurylenko made a strong case for high slits at her latest red carpet appearance, and needless to say, she has us convinced that we need one, too. The stylish actress attended the Moves Magazine party in NYC decked out in a svelte green dress by Altuzarra paired with matching buckle boots. While the overall length and fit of her dress are pretty modest, the sleek side slit detail adds just the right amount of party appeal. We also love the idea of wearing this look to the office (dress code permitting) styled with a sleek blazer and pumps, and if you're looking for less of a commitment, opt for a side-slit skirt and pair it with a semisheer blouse or silk tank for your next cocktail meetup.

Miranda Kerr, who signed on as the face of Mango in the Spring, is back — and she's the star of the brand's Summer '13 campaign. Shot by photographer duo Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Kerr shows off a lineup of perfectly styled ensembles that makes us wish for warmer days, the kind that instantly makes you think, "I want to dress like her." Among the standouts? A crisp white blazer, the perfect floral jacket, and printed pants we can't wait to live in. Click on to see the complete Mango Summer '13 campaign here.
Out of all the accoutrements to choose from, we always turn to the quintessential statement necklace to instantly uplift any look. Rife with bold colors and embellishments, the season's latest offer up irresistible high-low options from the likes of Isabel Marant, Zara, Pomellato 67, and BaubleBar. These pieces aren't just for your fancier looks; while we love styling statement necklaces with a chic little white dress or an ethereal Spring gown, these stunners would look just as good with a plain white tee and jeans. We found 11 sensational options — some even priced under $10 — for you to shop now.
Your Spring wardrobe revamp doesn't always have to be a dramatic one, and we're looking to this street-style subject for proof of a more subdued kind of seasonal overhaul. Between the eye-catching distressed jeans, the abundance of classic white layers, and the polished shoe choice, this is the kind of outfit that makes it impossibly easy to strike a balance between casual and chic. To achieve a similar effect, keep your worn-in, distressed jeans handy, then pair them with a white t-shirt (the more relaxed, the better) and an oversize white jacket. A white blazer or longer car-coat style will work just as well. As for the accessories, stick to the sophisticated basics, like black slingback pumps, a gold watch, and a neutral-toned bag. Now, shop the essentials below.

The denim jacket is a season-enduring wardrobe staple — this, we know — and with Spring layers in mind, we're loving the resurgence of lighter washes, distressed finishes, and sleeveless iterations to fete the shift in mood. Along with what we saw on the Spring '13 runways (think 3.1 Phillip Lim's downtown girl or Dries van Noten's '90s plaid-wearing femme), it's safe to say that the once-Americana jean-jacket look has taken a turn for a more girlie-meets-grunge sensibility this time around. Whether you employ a little bit of that street-styled edge à la wearing your jacket draped around the shoulders, layering a longer vest with a breezy printed dress, or working in a peplum silhouette for more "dressed-up" occasions, the denim jackets we've picked out below are meant to keep your warmer-weather looks on point.
