Sunshine State of Mind Summer Style Guide

Posted on 21 June 2019

Sunshine State of Mind

Longer days, family getaways, tropical fruits, afternoon rain showers, picnics, evening beach walks, flowing dresses and bright and bold swimsuits -- these are some of things we think about when we think summer. No matter what your plans are for the summer, here’s to fun, sunshine and a little bit of R&R. Welcome to Summer!

Whether you are heading out for a bike ride or meeting up with family for a backyard barbecue, this classic Valentina tee is the epitome of summer ease in a beach-inspired color palette. We can't help but fall in love with season-perfect vibrant pieces that mirror the beautiful blues of the sea or the fire-filled sky at sunset. Embrace fashions that reflect the easy living that is summer.

Summer style should be casual and comfortable, but even in this relaxed season you can still look put together. From our beautiful Anthony’s Resort Wear dresses with UPF50+ sun protection to the Dash linen crop pants in a marvelous vertical stripe, you can have sun-kissed comfort and incredible style at the same time.

Our ultimate summer bucket list includes the following:

      • Enjoy relaxing beach days with a good book
      • Pick some fresh berries
      • Attend outdoor concerts and movie nights on the lawn
      • Have sleepovers with the grandchildren
      • Get away with the family
      • Pack a picnic
      • Grow a hearty garden
      • Nap in a hammock
      • Hit up a baseball game
      • Watch a sunset over the water
      • Catch the fireworks and festivities of the summer season
      • Bake a fruit pie from scratch
      • Enjoy the afternoon on a front porch with an iced tea
      • Go some place you've never been

Thanks to those hot and humid summer days, you definitely need a clothing solution that will battle the heat and prevent sweat. Enter linen -- nature’s best fabric. It's lightweight, breezy and super absorbent. What more could you look for in your summer fashions? Did you know that the skin temperature of people in hot temperatures was 3-4 degrees lower for those wearing linen than those wearing other materials? See! It’s scientific fashion! Grab a Beyond Capri dress or a Per Se capri and you will be all set for the season.

With the longer days come some shorter lengths. It is time to swap the ankle pants for a Bermuda short, a skort or some clamdiggers. Stick to the classic white Coconut Row 13” Bermuda Short or the favorite Zac and Rachel skort in a fun summer shade if you are looking for a pop of color.

Swimsuits are a must for these summer days. Whether you want to relax by the pool, read the NYT best seller on the beach, or play in the puddles with your grandchildren, you won’t make it through the summer without a swimsuit. From tankinis to girl legs to a classic swim dress, there is a perfect style and silhouette for every body type. Best part about it, at Anthony's all of our swimsuits are now on sale.


Don't miss out on the best prices on 2019 swimwear!

A cold shoulder and a classic stripe?! This Cupio top blends the best of summer style into one comfortable, yet stylish top.

We wish for nothing but blue skies, blue oceans, and beautiful breezy blue summer dresses for you this summer! Dresses are always our go-to in the summer for chic, easy style that will keep us cool. Be beautiful, vibrant and happy in Anthony’s sundresses.

’Tis the season to stand out in color. Krazy Larry has mastered the art of the pant in his classic ankle pant silhouette.

This bright pink tie dye dress by Tiana B. is quite simply a "one knit" wonder. Aside from being able to just throw-it-on-and-go, we love how the shark bite hemline moves and sways for a little something extra. This dress is both feminine and flattering in a color that is sure to draw some compliments!

With all of the summer soirees ahead, think carefree and effortless style for those not-so-formal invites. This sleeveless Impulse top features a fun print and open lace design on the neckline to keep you cool and looking your best. Dress it up a little with a Zac and Rachel skort, or down with a white clamdigger pant for an afternoon of summer shopping.

Just because it's summer doesn't mean that blacks and neutrals are out! Keep it casual and comfortable in this ruffle knit top from Tribal and relaxed in these Mlle Gabrielle palazzo pants.

This season's multitasker: this Impulse shirt can be easily dressed up or down for all your favorite summer activities. It's in a fresh polka dot, featuring a lightweight gauzy fabric and relaxed collar.
