Our 2020 Summer Favorites
As summer reaches its zenith here in sun-drenched Florida, we look to gorgeous and breezy attire to keep our cool no matter the heat index. With most social activities taking place outdoors these days, we want you to stay comfortable AND fashionable. Let these summertime styles inspire your season of relaxation with light-as-air fabrics and a tropical color palette. Sip a chilled drink as you browse and enjoy!
Dress it Up
The Florida ladies know that flowing sundresses are a summertime style must-have. Mlle Gabrielle adds some sweet details to their rendition of this perennial favorite with a foldover collar, button-front styling, and a high-low sharkbite hemline. Slip into this dress with a shady straw hat for an impromptu stroll on the beach or pair with some statement jewelry for hosting an outdoor dinner party.
Palm Fronds and Pretty Frocks
Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the natural world and appreciate the flora and fauna that abounds. The bold leafy print featured on this Ronni Nicole dress is sure to bring you into an island state of mind, brimming with tropical foliage. This dress is ideal for lounging poolside (just don’t forget to remove your sandals before dipping in your toes)!
Feather-light and flowy fabrics are essential this time of year, and Spense’s lovely tops don’t disappoint. This blouse, with feminine touches of lace trim, is a prime example of Spense’s expertise when it comes to combining comfort and beauty.
During these warm months, it can be easy to want to nap the day away, but IBKUL has your active lifestyle in mind. IBKUL tops feature a proprietary cooling fabric with UPF50+ sun protection and come in a wide range of solids and prints, such as this Python Snake design. This versatile top pairs perfectly with either a white or black pant for a sleek outfit and can also be worn for playing tennis, golf, and other outdoor sports.
Oceanic vistas of sky and surf, that’s what these tranquil shades of blue bring to mind. The beautiful tones of turquoise, baby blue, periwinkle, and even navy in these clothes create a calming effect, especially when paired with crisp, clean white separates. These looks are anything but basic though, with thoughtful details such as ruffles, scallops, polka dots, and sketched lines, they symbolize the gentle motion of the sea.
Is anything more quintessentially Floridian than flamingos? Wear your love for the Sunshine State on your sleeve in this whimsically printed IBKUL sun shirt featuring our favorite fuschia feathered-friends.
Longer days mean more sunshine, and you’ll naturally be looking to lighter-colored textiles to diminish the rays’ warmth. This outfit is a prime example of the fact that white and tan shades of clothing don’t have to be boring- with lovely embellishments like embroidery and ornate buttons, a French Dressing knit top and Counterparts bermuda short combo is a great choice for an afternoon of shopping and running errands in style.
Another take on classic sun protection by IBKUL, this sun shirt showcases the lagoon-like colors of seafoam and green in watercolory flourishes. You’ll love wearing this top with a practical, polished skort or short as you sip some fresh juice under a shady tree.
