How to Pull Off a Summer Suit Like an Influencer
Not only is power dressing here to stay (woot!), but the latest wave of pantsuits will have you feeling the FOMO. Yes, even in the dead of summer. With a punchy sorbet-hued summer suit and just the right souped-up accessories (an It girl-approved bag! A dope pair of sunglasses!), 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.
