Summer Street Style Looks To Copy Now!

Our summer days get pretty busy. Between work and managing a blossoming social calendar, you might not always have time to think of creative new looks that show off your styling skills. That's why you have us, obviously. We're helping you locate your sartorial sneakiness with three must-try looks snapped right here in town. Each look is perfect for your summer schedule: Extra-cute but not so tricky that you're late for the party. We did all the legwork for you and picked some spot-on outfit options to make sure you're shopping in the right direction. Pick a favorite look (or three!), and see how you stack up against Chicago's style stars.

We're not always (ahem) prepared for short-shorts, and Allie shows us a cute example of how to rock a summer-ready pant. We think her super-huge wedges are a stroke of genius, and a cool, sleeveless top lets you show off a great pair of arms (when your legs need the day off!).
Carlina top by Theory, $200, available at Theory. Pleat Front Peg Trouser by ASOS, $60.34, available at ASOS. Leather Oxford wedges by Miu Miu, $660, available at Net-A-Porter. Wire Ball Necklace, $25, available at Topshop.
Michelle pulls off looking sexy (not trashy) for summer. Bravo! Imagine a world where you don't have to give away the farm to attract a hot glance or two. Michelle is living it, and we think her style is worth replicating. Don't you?
Cotton-sateen shorts by A.P.C., $82.50 (originally $165), available at Net-A-Porter. Korsi heels by Vince Camuto, $110, available at Lori's. Robin silk-georgette blouse by Tory Burch, $295, available at Net-A-Porter. Aztec Straw Clutch by BCBGeneration, $57.99 (originally $78) available at Macy's.
Sophie's look is the definition of a Chicago-ready outfit. She's prepped for city strolling in feminine ankle boots and a skirt that's sweetly belted at a high waist. Her goes-with-everything denim jacket shows that if she's caught a random chilly breeze in June (what's up with those, anyway?), and she's prepared for it.
BLC Denim 3/4 Sleeve Crop Jacket, $80, available at Topshop. Sailboat Skirt, $78, available at Anthropologie. Boxxy Bootie by Jeffrey Campbell, $69.90 (originally $139.95), available at Nordstrom. Braided Leatherette Belt $7.80, available at Forever21.
