The Scene: Sipping on refreshing rosé
Her Must-Have Piece: High-waisted shorts
Sunday Funday gets a major upgrade when you switch from beer gardens to vineyards. Naturally, your wardrobe should get a boost, too. “I love anything high-waisted — it’s so on trend,” says Lavelanet. “High-waisted shorts are perfect for an event that’s a step above casual. Whether you pair them with a crop top or tucked-in tank or blouse, they’ll look chic and appropriate.”

“A high-waisted cut is meant to show off your middle,” says Lavelanet. “The shorts should sit at your natural waist. Pick a pair that’s long enough for you to feel comfortable in, so you won’t be tugging them down.”

Her Must-Have Piece: Cropped leggings
Working out is always better with a view, right? “I love to do yoga outdoors — I’ll do it in the park, on my rooftop by myself, on the beach if I’m on a family vacation…wherever!” says Lavelanet. But, you want to look as good strolling the sidewalk as you do in your warrior pose. “These calf-length leggings are made for going straight from walking around to actually exercising."

The playful black-and-white stripes go with any top (we always support a neon sports bra). And, "the solid black stripes along the side elongate your legs, even if you're short like me!” says Lavelanet.

Her Must-Have Piece: The drapey dress
Whether you're hosting a low-key wine night or a full-on dinner party, you want to be comfortable enough to pull off all the behind-the-scenes work without skimping on style. This gauzy dress — in a very of-the-moment mint — can be as dressy or casual as you make it, and the airy fabric is a dream to move around in. “My personal style is very edgy-meets-feminine," says Lavelanet. "I love the idea of sheer layers paired with a leather moto jacket or chunky wedges."
