WHAT TO WEAR: Presentation

Summer break is underway, so dust off those shorts and tees and move your winter clothes to the back of the closet. A must-have item for the summer is a solid colored tunic. Ralph Lauren and Free People have a wide selection of tunics with several different fabric choices. If you are a lace lover, like me, then Free People tunics are the way to go. Ralph Lauren’s summer collection of tunics are typically made with linen, which is a light, breathable fabric that is perfect for the summer. The versatility of this garment ranges from a bathing suit cover up to a beautiful complement to cropped pants. The possibilities with a solid color tunic are endless.

Matching a white tunic with a classic lavender capri pant and bedazzled sandals puts subtle color into a classic nautical look, making this Fashionista’s outfit youthful and fun. Although capri pants can be found in almost any store, my favorites can be located at Ann Taylor. Ann Taylor pants have several different cuts perfect for all body types. Capris are classic pieces and can be worn from one summer to the next.

Bring this look together with the perfect jeweled sandal. Similar to pants, sandals can be found in almost any retail store. Steve Madden is my personal favorite for fashionable- but comfortable- shoes. I still own every pair of Steve Madden shoes I have ever purchased! They are very well built, comfortable, and fashionable, which is difficult combo to find. For once, your feet do not have to suffer in the name of beauty.

One Simple Change: You can take this outfit from the classroom to a girl’s night out. Grab a pair of nude wedges and you are set for a night on the town with the girls.
