!), you'll no doubt crush the style game as you head to Honolulu or Nantucket — your virtual office for the weekend. Swipe through to see how these street MVPs are mastering summer's hautest co-ord.
Pastel Pantsuit: What fashion sorcery is this?! Show 'em who's boss in a pastel or Crayola-hued pantsuit that's equal parts androgynous and sporty. (Photo via Edward Berthelot/Getty Images)
ASOS Design Lilac Suit ($138):
If this isn't color clickbait, then we don't know what is. See ya at happy hour, maybe?
Flat-Brimmed Hat: Beat the heat index with a resort-approved panama hat and Gen-Z yellow suit that would even do Solange proud. Werk. (Photo via Claudio Lavenia/Getty Images)
Tio y Tia The Paloma ($165):
Salty sea breeze, where are you? Tio y Tia's woven straw bolero hat is as worthy of a companion as any for your go-to summer linen suit. Boardwalk strolls may
be in order.
Bamboo Bag: Easiest way to "summerfy" your look? Channel out-of-office vibes at first strut with a ubiquitous bamboo or straw bag (cough, Cult Gaia, cough) that commands attention. Peep dem powder blue slingbacks too. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Cult Gaia Cupola Bag ($148):
It's all in the bamboo bag. Lead the fashion pack with Cult Gaia's dome-shaped Cupola bag featuring an architectural silo and collapsible handles.
Fishnet Tote: Cause nothing says "aloha!" like a seafoam green co-ord, a floppy straw hat, teeny-tiny shades, and a beach-bound fishnet tote. The only thing missing is a Hawaiian shirt… oh, but wait. (Photo via Claudio Lavenia/Getty Images)
Nannacay Fishnet Pompom-Embellished Macramé Tote ($200):
You're stranded on an island and can only bring ONE thing. Make it Nannacay's pom-pom-embellished macramé bag — the quintessential shopper tote to stash all your ish for a quick business trip, er, Hamptons getaway.
Mirrored Sunglasses: Here comes Malibu Barbie in the flesh. Beyond a bubblegum pink-tinted suit, may we recommend a scene-stealing pair of reflective shades? (Photo via Matthew Sperzel/Getty Images)
Sunday Somewhere Pink Flamingo ($189):
Allow these pink mirrored sunnies (check out those lil' palm trees!) from Sunday Somewhere to be your ticket to paradise.
Statement-Making Satchel: Cue the power stance: This street MVP is ready to slay with her fluorescent hot pink suit, orange topper, and top-handle satchel. (Photo via Brian Dowling/Getty Images for Marc Cain)
Botkier Lennox Small Cross Body Bag ($228):
It's 'bout time you traded in your hefty briefcase for a colorblock crossbody satchel that successfully mixes business with pleasure. Botkier FTW.
Strapless Bandeau: Nine-to-five or five-to-nine? Both. Ditch the stuffy button-down for a tube top from the early aughts that's totally in demand for summer '18. (Photo via Edward Berthelot/GC Images)
Topshop Plain Bandeau Top ($10):
Make like Sporty Spice with a versatile, wear-everywhere black bandeau that requires zero styling whatsoever.
Ugly "Dad" Trainers: You could say that "ugly" dad trainers are having a bit of a moment. (Photo via Claudio Lavenia/Getty Images)
Schutz Anick Sneaker ($200):
These futuristic platform sneaks will do just fine for hitting the pavement. Rev up the menswear appeal with a slouchy pantsuit and classic wayfarers for a FROW-ready lewk.
A White T-Shirt: With the right POV (a vibrant blue suit, perhaps?), you too can make a plain white tee look like a million bucks. (Photo via Christian Vierig/Getty Images)
Everlane The Cotton Crew ($16):
We look to Everlane for a breathable cotton crew-neck tee that doesn't wrinkle at first sweat. Now we're talking.
