Upgrade Your Skinnies With A Denim Jumpsuit
Get ready to up your denim game in a MAJOR way. Meet the jean jumpsuit, a.k.a. the chicest pair of overalls you've ever seen. The halter neck and slightly flared leg give this piece its Studio 54 vibe, while the slightly stretchy, comfortable material allows for easy movement. Play up the '70s theme with a fitted short-sleeve turtleneck and printed scarf — and, of course, some de rigueur flatforms, so you can dance the day away.
Take The Utility Shirt Out Of The Workshop
There's no reason for the washable workshirt to be relegated to shop class. Make this utilitarian staple work overtime by combining it with metallics for a jolt of glamour. Silky harem pants keep the whole look slouchy and cool, while embellished stacked heels add some dressed-up whimsy with a sturdy stride.
Loosen Your Pants
When you're planning on a day of fraternizing outside, you definitely want to feel relaxed and cozy — which is why on-trend culottes and flares are your friends. With the roomy forgiveness of sweats, but in silhouettes that feel far more sophisticated and grown-up, these looser styles allow you to look effortlessly chic without sacrificing comfort.
Show Some Skin, Sans Miniskirt
Don't get us wrong, we're all about the occasional miniskirt or tasteful cutout. But, those pieces tend to leave you turning into a pumpkin after only an hour or two, either riding up, slipping out of place, or clinging in all the wrong areas. An off-the-shoulder blouse is a less obvious, and way more fashion-forward, skin-baring alternative. Though this one has long sleeves, the woven-cotton material keeps it super breathable.
Go Big With A Colorful Midi
If you want to feel covered (read: able to move about without any wardrobe malfunctions) but still dressed up, the very au courant midi-skirt is your go-to. This one's intentionally crinkled material means you don't need to sweat those pesky sitting creases. Pair it with a crisp button-up and a metallic belt to take the comfy number up a notch. And, bright-white flatform sneakers give you the extra height you need when sporting this tricky skirt length, without the pain of heels.
