Fashion: Chunky slides and white shirts made new for summer



< Previous Page


The look isn’t particularly structured but can be feminine and airy, hitting at the midcalf. Pleats fancy things up and offer a nearly universal shape.

"It makes almost every woman’s waist look thinner. If you wear it with a heel, a longer silhouette makes you look taller. And you can find them with all types of strap details so it’s easy to pair a bra with," she said.

There’s a range of fabrics out there, from casual cotton to silky satin for evening.

Jewelry

Try some delicate, stackable rings, but don’t feel honor-bound to stack.

Split them across fingers or wear one above the knuckle with another on the thumb, Avidan-Cohn said.

You can personalize with your initials or buy plated metal to save a few bucks. Avidan-Cohn suggests sticking to one-color metal but otherwise urges you to have at it five at a time!

The white shirt

This staple has been made new again.

"There are all of these different variations now on a classic cotton white shirt, which is the most comfortable thing to wear during summer," Avidan-Cohn said.

Forget your basic fitted button-down. Some have asymmetric hems, so the back is longer. Others are without collars or sleeves.

Ways to wear them are many: Layer over a structured skirt, leave the shirttails out in the back or roll up the sleeves.

"You can put something over the top of one. You can wear it as a short dress. They’re really, really versatile pieces to have," Avidan-Cohn said. "I’ve seen a lot of things returning to a classic, modern way of dressing."
