How many of you wore skippys all summer while growing up? I clearly remember getting crisp white skippys at the beginning of the summer and rocking them out like every day - running around the neighborhood playing tag, jump robe, and having water gun fights. I guess that's the beauty of Brooklyn.
Skippys were the ultimate affordable footwear at the time, and behold - Today's Obsession is the new school summer skippy: the flat espadrille. I am in love. Can't wait for another fun filled summer!

Tip #1: Let your printed jumpsuit stand out with minimal accessories. Some of the hottest rompers and jumpsuits this season have bright, bold prints. To really make the romper stand out, keep accessories to a minimum, like this neutral toned headband and jacket. It will make the jumpsuit the focal point, without overdoing it.
Tip #2: Style your basics using complementary colors; pair with neutral accents. One way to spruce up those boring basics is by pairing contrasting colors together. If you're unsure of what colors are complementary to one another, take a look at a color wheel. The complementary colors fall directly across from one another. A few examples are purple and yellow, blue and orange, and red and green. A neutral bag and shoes will tone the ensemble down a bit, making it easy and wearable.
Tip #3: Try an all white or cream ensemble. Mix up textures to make it pop! A neutral monochromatic color scheme is big this summer, but the look can be a bit dull. To style this trend right, be sure to add textured pieces into the mix, like this silky top with linen shorts. Lace and/or ruffles are also a great combination!
