We are attempting to get you started with some of the fashion must-haves for the months ahead.  Summer begins first, with that big decision…..the ‘Suit’, Swimsuit, that is, and the big news this year is that the One-piece is the newest and the hottest suit to have. This is not your grandmother’s one-piece…..there are cut-outs galore, sheer mesh insets, a lot of white hot suits that have never looked sexier, in fact some are designed to never even hit that water and there’s much, much more!

Cover-up options run the gammet from tunics that can be worn over suits or to the poolside bar for an afternoon snack. There are also tons of sportswear options like great white shirts (always a classic choice), long maxi skirts or full leg pants, which I love in white or cute printed shorts, rompers and sarongs.

Totes for summer are looking the best in the must-have straw ‘market bag’ that everyone is doing but make it fun and add some trinkets…..everything from beads to tassles to even monograms make the basic ‘carry everywhere’ bag a lot more fun!
