My latest styling trick is doing them in a super flare fit like this Burberry pair ($250). It's like an instant skinny mirror that everyone can see. — LM Burberry White Wash Flare Fit Jeans $250 from Burberry Buy Now See more Burberry Flare Denim I've been on the hunt for the perfect oversize clutch for some time now, and I was thrilled to land on Stella McCartney's clutch ($1,120) because it's totally in line with the latest patchwork craze. Plus, its many colors and facets will keep the compliments coming. — Melody Nazarian Stella McCartney Oversized Patchwork Clutch in Spearmint $1120 from Forward By Elyse Walker Buy Now See more Stella McCartney Clutches A Panama hat is functional and completely effortless.

Just add this to white skinny jeans and your favorite sandals for an instantly seasonal look. — HW La Garçonne Tees Alexander Yamaguchi / Boxy Stripe Tee $78 from La Garçonne Buy Now See more La Garçonne Tees Evening sandals in the Summer should be two things: tall and sexy. These Aquazzura lace-up cage sandals ($595) are both and will look good worn with a pair of distressed jeans and a tee or a pencil skirt and silk tank. Wear them with neutrals for a pop of color or play with a mixture of patterns and prints for something that feels more global. — MC Aquazzura lace-up cage sandals $595 from intermixonline.com Buy Now Summer-ready pants can be hard to come by, especially seeing as how capris have gotten a bad wrap over the years. To score cropped trousers that don't enter into pedal-pusher territory, I look for a tailored silhouette and a narrow opening right above the ankle, like with this bold floral pair from Zara ($60). — KS bold floral pair from Zara $60 from zara.com Buy Now Because ponytails and messy buns will inevitably be my Summer hairstyle of choice, now's the time to partake in the season's ear cuff trend. This Ryan Storer silver crystal mini ear cuff ($223) will instantly add a cool (and very luxe) downtown edge to all of my warm-weather party ensembles. — Chi Diem Chau Ryan Storer silver crystal mini ear cuff $223 from ryanstorer.bigcartel.com Buy Now As the temperatures heat up, I'm feeling less inclined to layer, which is why I love this colorblock maxi by Lilly Pulitzer ($328).

I love seeing her signature feminine details at J.Crew prices as part of the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award collaboration. These Daisy Willow sandals ($328) upgrade the basic flat sandal into a fashion favorite. — MLG Tabitha Simmons for J.Crew Daisy Willow sandals in blue $328 from J.Crew Buy Now See more Tabitha Simmons Sandals Every girl needs a red dress in her arsenal — I just can't believe I haven't had one until now. And with wedding season upon us, I can't think of a better time to invest in this BCBG Max Azria red asymmetrical hem dress ($198). Because it has a clean silhouette, it can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories. And I love that it shows off just enough leg but leaves the rest to the imagination. — MN BCBGMAXAZRIA Willow Asymmetrical-Hem Dress $198 from BCBGMAXAZRIA Buy Now See more BCBGMAXAZRIA Dresses Chances are good that starting this month, your office thermostat will be set to arctic. When I need to layer up indoors but don't want to be weighed down by a thick wool sweater, this DKNY linen cardigan ($195) does the trick. Plus, it's neutral enough to match whatever I'm wearing in case I need to take it out for a spin on a cool Summer night. — KS DKNY linen cardigan $195 from dkny.com Buy Now The colors of Mario Testino's vivid photography will come to life on June 5 when he debuts a small capsule collection created with Mate on Net-a-Porter. Some of the photos in Testino's latest exhibit, Alta Moda, which were shot in his native Peru, were enlarged and turned into prints. This bold handbag ($150), accented with pom-poms, is probably the most spirited piece in the collection. — Justin Fenner The Club Monaco Sunny tee ($40) makes it near impossible to get the denim cutoffs plus t-shirt equation wrong. I love that this particular version not only comes in every colorway, but that it's also perfectly slouchy in that "I stole it from my boyfriend" way, complete with an oversize front pocket. Plus, I have a feeling this tee will go with everything you'd want to wear poolside. — Marisa Tom Club Monaco Sunny tee $40 from clubmonaco.com Buy Now Jason Wu never fails to delight with his lower-priced Miss Wu line, and this black-and-white shirtdress ($375) is a perfect example. I'll wear it all Summer to work and then toss it over a turtleneck come fall. It's an easy way to start embracing the minimalist look that's getting so big. — MLG black-and-white shirtdress $375 from shop.nordstrom.com Buy Now I fell in love with the bubblegum colors and sporty-meets-sexy silhouette of this Agent Provocateur bikini as soon as I saw Nina Dobrev wearing it. Yes, the Mazzi bikini top ($220) and brief bottoms ($170) certainly give way to showing off a lot of skin, but the neon palette makes it downright fun. — MT Nina Dobrev wearing it.

And bonus: it would probably look just as cool on women as men. — JF short-sleeved shirt $395 from mrporter.com Buy Now Splendid is my go-to brand for basics, and this woven pocket tank ($68) is no exception. With a rounded collar and relaxed fit, not to mention seven color options(!), this tank is going to be worn again and again. The beauty of basics is that you can dress them up or down. I'm envisioning this lime green tank with a statement necklace, skinny jeans, and cute Summer wedges. — Jen Michalski Splendid Woven Pocket Tank $68 from Splendid Buy Now See more Splendid Tanks Summer marks the start of weekend getaways — wouldn't this Kate Spade Saturday weekender bag ($160) be the perfect accompaniment for all of your adventures?

It's aptly name the "perfect slip dress," and I can't wait to wear it with a light vest and nude sandals for a day at work and with bold gold jewels later into the evening. — CDC Tibi slip dress $310 from tibi.com Buy Now The best part about this Nixon Time Teller watch ($75) — besides it being water-resistant, of course — is the little pop of orange the hands give against the gray rubber case. It's sporty and stylish and can go from the city to the surf without missing a beat. — RK Nixon Time Teller watch $75 from shop.nordstrom.com Buy Now The boxy, comfortable fit of a Saint James tee ($130) makes it ideal for Summer wearing (it fits perfectly with a worn-in pair of cutoffs). — LM La Garçonne Longsleeve Tops Saint James / Naval II Shirt $130 from La Garçonne Buy Now See more La Garçonne Longsleeve Tops If sunglasses are a must, then why not have a little fun with them?

We're definitely putting our bold prints on blast as we cruise into June. My advice? Stick to the basics (a white tee, minimalist sandals) and let the pants do the talking. — MT J Brand 620 Hydrangea Super Skinny $144 from J Brand Buy Now See more J Brand Denim The Bleecker canvas tote ($448) from Coach is the perfect beach bag in my eyes. Its bright color, woven leather handle, and cavernous interior all make it a pleasure to carry to that perfect spot in the sand, and what's better is that its durable canvas construction will not only last multiple seasons, but it'll also look better with age. — RK Coach Bleecker Beach Canvas Tote $448 from Coach Buy Now See more Coach Totes Mary Katrantzou is the queen of funky patterns, and this Rodizio t-shirt ($448) was love at first sight. The bold colors, canaries, hibiscus flowers, and blue ocean water graphics have me in a beach state of mind. It'll look great tucked into a pair of black leather shorts, or worn out over skinny jeans. — JM Mary Katrantzou 'Rodizio' t-shirt $447 from Farfetch Buy Now See more Mary Katrantzou Shortsleeve Tops I have been fighting against the white pump trend for months, but when I saw Brit It girl Sophia Webster's take ($320) on them (from an exclusive capsule collection for Net-a-Porter), I was sold. The heel is walkable, the pointed toe is roomy enough, and the shade is just shy of stark. Count me on the bandwagon. — MLG Sophia Webster's take $320 from net-a-porter.com Buy Now Talk about statement dress: this Three Floor cutout dress ($308) is sure to turn heads everywhere it goes. Cutouts tend to be hard to pull off, but I love the contrast between the subtle cutout and the more serious tweed fabrics — I call that chic teamwork! — MN shopbop.com Day Dresses Three floor In a Spin Dress $308 from shopbop.com Buy Now See more shopbop.com Day Dresses Skort? Did I read that correctly? Oh yes, you did, friends — this shell-print Stella Jean skort ($435) tops my Summer must-have list tenfold.
