In school, the end of finals marked the start of summer, but in the working world, it’s the long Memorial Day weekend - three days of barbeques and boat rides, lounging and welcoming the promise of three months of sun. The weekend has a casual air about it, but I like to keep my casual a little more refined. The compromise? Natural pieces with a chic sensibility. I love brown and khaki hues on sandals, skirts, and shorts, and a dash of unexpected color brings the neutral palette to life. We’ve got some super-sleek looks in our Trends, and they’re turning out to be my summer loves.
