While playing tourist in London with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult over the weekend, Jennifer Lawrence showed off two perfect touring looks: a white crochet maxi dress with Tory Burch sandals and a black maxi dress with Tory Burch flats and a Marc Jacobs bag. She started the day with the breezy white look, which also included aviator sunglasses and a Tory Burch macramé bag, then she strolled some more in a black maxi dress, which featured an intricate crochet back. If you have a vacation coming up, look to Jennifer for inspiration on what to pack for all your sightseeing excursions.
When the heat is sweltering and you can literally fry an egg on the sidewalk, sometimes all you can do is stay inside with a fan, a glass of iced tea, and a good Summer movie — and even when it's not quite warm enough to hit the beach or lie in the park, watching a flick about the warm-weather months can get you in the right frame of mind, sartorially speaking. If you're like us and are missing the days of having zero worries in the Summer (when your only responsibilities in life were sleeping in, riding bikes with your friends, and packing for Summer camp), we've got a treat for you. From Marilyn Monroe's classic sexpot style in The Seven Year Itch to Vada Sultenfuss's tomboy cool in My Girl, we've culled some warm-weather wardrobe inspiration from some of our favorite Summer films. Click through to see and shop each look, and let us know your favorite Summer movie in the comments!
In my quest to find a swimsuit that gives my post-baby body plenty of coverage and curves, I've found two solutions: neoprene and nonstop Pilates. Let's go with neoprene for now. The lightweight rubber material, used in scuba gear, helps suck you in and smooth over dimples and rolls, curing you from a case of the jiggles. A wetsuit, however, is not the answer.
Enter Lisa Marie Fernandez, the fashion-stylist-cum-swimsuit-designer who made neoprene fashionable with her line of sleek and, yes, sporty (but mostly sleek) suits. This season, she partnered with British designer Peter Pilotto (and prints master) to create a collection of gorgeous printed swimwear. My favorite is the Farrah ($495). The maillot features curved seam details to add some shape to the midsection, cap sleeves to make arms look thinner, and a sexy front zip to show off decolletage à la a classic Bond girl. At $495, it's not a guilt-free buy, but after trying on so many suits that don't help, it's worth it to find one that does. Plus, I'm totally obsessed with the artful print.
Fab reader ppfgirl brought chic sophistication to the bright-pants trend by adding animal print and and classic gold accessories. She paired cropped kelly-green pants with a breezy leopard-print blouse before grabbing a structured two-tone tote that coordinated with the neutral shades of her top. Along with cool aviators, she dressed up the look with bold accessories: a long chain necklace, a gold menswear watch, and a mix of gold and yellow bracelets. Topping off her polished style? Colorblocked heels in nude, black, and neon orange for a fun, unexpected pop of color that adds personality to the outfit.
