- Breezy kimonos. Love layering? You can still pull off layered looks in hot months with breezy, barely-there kimonos that are like airy cardigans. Trade out your heavier knits and blazers for the Bohemian-inspired kimonos that can be tossed over lightweight tanks and tees. This Robin K Lace Trim Festival Jacket ($38) is a lightweight, gauzy layering piece or opt for a moody purple print with this Band of Gypsies Print Kimono ($38).
- Global glam. It’s become so popular, Nordstrom even has curated a shopping section dedicated to pieces with worldly patterns and prints that look like they were inspired by international adventures. A stand-out splurge piece in the collection is a Diane von Furstenberg ‘New Julian 2 – Desert Band Silk Jersey Wrap Dress’ for $365 with ikat blue pattern-mixed with a ‘desert band’ skirt. Some budget-friendly, global-inspired picks include ikat shorts in blue and white for $42.50 and a Diamond Print Crepe V-neck shift dress (pictured) that has a stained glass effect.
- Rompers. We’re loving one pieces because they make getting dressed in the summer a no-brainer and are perfect for weekend jaunts to the beach or the farmer’s market. The dee elle Stripe Scoop Back Romper has a scooped back neckline and darling stripes ($38).
- Palazzo pants. Lightweight, wide-leg pants are making a major statement this summer and they’ve become the favorite trouser of stars like Kourtney Kardashian and Charlize Theron. Balance them out with a crop top or fitted tank for an effortless summer look. The Element ‘Existence’ Print Palazzo Pants ($49.50) from Nordstrom are whimsical and incorporate beach prints perfect for summer.
