Let’s return to summer clothing for a little bit (despite Resort 2011 collections being already out, hello jet-setting winters!) – it is still only June, after all. Summer is all about lightweight comfort; clothes that are simply easy to wear in the heat while still being stylish and flattering. What easier color is there than white, the ever classic and straightforward warm weather staple? The archetypal color gets an update this season by getting paired with neutral colors such as beige in interesting fabrics like linen and leather structured in clean, architectural shapes. So while all those other girls are wearing wildly colorful graphic dresses on the streets (oh yes, we love that trend as well) go against the grain by staying simple and chic.

Splurge on one expensive item (saving up for the Mulberry Alexa!) but in the meantime, get the look for less from mark.! Check out the Arm Candy bag ($28), You’re A Natural bag ($28), Garden Party dress ($32), and The Nude Look dress ($29) to get the season’s timeless yet trendy neutral style. Making high fashion accessible to everyday women – that’s summery shrewd style.
