Summer is finally here! How did it get here so fast? In Fort Collins, temperatures are continuing to rise as we enter another heatwave. We don't know about you, but when the weather starts to climb above 90 degrees, we tend to feel uninspired and experience a sort of 'brain fog' when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. Times like these are when it's key to reach for easy, uncomplicated pieces in your closet and focus on ways to add interest with accessories.

While scrolling through Pinterest for inspiration, we found easy outfit formulas that will keep you looking effortlessly chic in the heat. The best part is you probably already have some of these items in your closet. However, if you find yourself needing to refresh some pieces, we've linked all the items in our store that you can use to recreate the looks. Now let's get into it!



In Jane Birkin's look, we loved how chic Jane looked in such a simple outfit. We think the key here is lightweight, easy silhouettes to keep you cool (literally). We paired our RE/DONE 60s Slim Tee in White with our Moussy MV Trigg Straight Low Jean to achieve this vintage look. You could also opt for a pair of vintage Levi's from Our Collection. Throw on an easy, comfy, neutral slide such as our Isabel Marant Vikee Sandal and obviously a basket bag such as our Bembien Solana Bag to complete Jane's iconic look. For those extra hot days, we make sure to carry an UNDO Hairware Claw Clip in our bags to keep our hair off our necks. This look can take you to the farmer's market to shopping in Old Town, or just hanging out with a glass of wine on your porch (if that's your thing). So easy!



Sometimes it can be hard to decide what to wear when you want to feel more dressed up. In this cult favorite jewelry brand LIÉ Studio sister's look, Amalie is sporting a very classic LBD, very similar to our Isabel Marant Nadela Dress. A cotton dress in a must-have for hot summer days, and we personally love the rouching detail on the side of this one, as well as the removeable shoulder pads for versatility. Of course, you can wear the dress alone, but we like to carry the Nili Lotan Dorothy Jacket around with us to throw over our shoulders because the A/C in restaurants or while shopping around can be intense! Pair this look with a kitten heel that's easy to walk around in such as our Isabel Marant Pilia Heel and some LIÉ Studio jewelry to top it off. We love the modern sophistication of the Agnes Ring in Silver for this look. 




As much as we love summer, we are also still working in this heat, not hanging by the pool all day like we did as kids. Breezy fabrications and layers are key to dressing professionally in this heat. A white button-up shirt is a must-have for any season, but in the summer we prefer the Frank&Eileen Eileen Button-Up in their light, Casual Cotton fabrication to keep us feeling cool. Layering our Anine Bing Kaia Blazer over the button up keeps the look professionally, and again, can easily be thrown over the shoulder for more a chill look whether you're in the office, or walking through the city on lunch. Add some chic and updated accessories like our Anine Bing Mogeh Tote , LIÉ Studio Laura Necklace in Gold , and of course Le Specs Unreal in Shiny Black Sunnies to shield the sun. 



When feeling uninspired, playing with shape and proportions is an easy way to add interest to your outfit. To recreate this look, we paired our Tibi Stella Pleated Jean with our Éterne Cropped Fitted Long Sleeve Top. keep in mind, if its too hot for a long sleeve, you can switch it out for an Éterne Fitted Tank. We love the oversized silhouette of the jean as well as the pleats for keeping it more polished if you're working. Taking the Tibi Sculpted Cotton Trench on the go with you is perfect for when you're stuck in A/C for too long or get caught in an afternoon summer rain. Tibi’s take on the classic trench will be your go-to for seasons to come with it's modern, unique shape as well as its pragmatism. To 'jeuje' up the look, add accessories such as our Jerome Dreyfuss Clap Bag in Noir Brass and Caddis Life Miklos Readers in Matte Black
