Good morning! Summer and seersucker are kind of synonymous and though I don’t wear it often when I spotted this classic at Banana Republic recently I thought it would be a fun addition to my wardrobe. I went the masculine route and wore the blazer and cropped pants together with a favorite pair of oxfords (you’ve seen me wear them here).

Lose the jacket and wear a simple white t-shirt or tank (great options here...

Its wrap-style silhouette and shawl collar (buttoned up because of the wind) makes it...

How To Wear Monochrome

Going monochrome can either leave you looking chic or like you’re heading out the door to do a little trick or treating. (Couldn’t resist that one on this eve of Halloween :) ) Looking like you’re wearing a costume usually happens when you’re sporting way too much color (bright yellow or hot pink, for instance) without the right accessories. Since I typically gravitate towards neutrals, I thought I’d use one of my favorite hues – grey – to illustrate how to do monochrome in an elegant, understated way. Tones, Textures and Patterns I’ve used several different shades of grey in...
