Edgy Looks for the Summer

By Manuela Domingos

This summer, I’m cleaning up my closet. Although I’m not entirely saying goodbye to African print and bright colors, I’ve decided to add more neutral tones to my wardrobe. White, nudes, and blacks are my to-go-to colors for the season. There’s something inexplicably chic and edgy about wearing the same color from head to toe. It’s simple, yet classy. The following are must needed staple pieces that looks amazing on almost any shade of skin.


A nude palazzo style pant. High waisted pants are in. The palazzo style pant is edgy and comfortable for a summer day. Throw on some sandals and a plain crop top for the day; dress it up with some strapless heels for a nighttime look


A white shift dress. It’s time to put the stripped maxi dresses to a rest and bring out the plain but chic simple shift dress. The dress is perfect for a lunch date or girls’ night out in the city. This piece can either be dressed down for a more casual look with sandals or flats and dressed up with heels.


A black sleeveless shirt dress. A button down shirt dress is a casual look that can be effortlessly worn. Add a unique touch to this look with a mandarin collar, instead of the usual collared shirt look.


A lacy crop top.  Wear the crop top look in white, nude, or black in lacy fabric, as the lace adds a flirty touch. Pair the top with high wasted pants or a skirt to balance out the look.


An off the shoulder ruffle top. The off the shoulder look is fun, flirty, and festive. Wear this top in ruffle form to add a fun feel for the summer. Balance the top with a pair of wide denim or palazzo pants as bottoms.
