Summer Fling with Fashion


Summer is a time to let loose and have fun.  Whether traveling, venturing to the beach, or rocking it out close to home this warm season, it’s not too late to start a summer romance with your fashion.

Here are some of the hottest crushes that are sparking interest for Summer 2010:

J.crew $98

The Romper

Flirty, practical, and comfortable, nothing flatters you quite like a romper.  Dress up or down your style with flare, or cover up with a cardigan when sultry days turn into breezy nights.  Temptresses, pair your romper with gladiator sandals and over-sized sunglasses to complete the look.  Rompers are perfect for the date that wants to show off her legs or highlight her curves.

Orvis $69

Expedition Hybrid/ Field Shirts

Layered flaps and ornamental shoulder illustrates any guy’s desire for off-road adventure.  Free your personal travel compass of any commitments and embark on new terrain with a shirt that can keep up with your endurance.  Sport your expedition shirt over a cotton burn-out tee or venture wearing it by itself.  Perfect for air travel, outdoor exploration, or that unexpected date, field shirts keep air circulating so you stay cool and on top of your game.

Calypso $135

Tunic Swimsuit Coverall

You never know when a soiree, BBQ, or a beach opportunity will present itself.  Ladies, a cover-up may be just the thing you need to make a seamless transition between day and night play.  Traveling light can give you the flexibility to choose your affair while the simple, but intricate details can take you to beach to street in minutes.  Try denim, shorts, or wide belts with this low-maintenance summer rule of engagement.

LRG $59

Cargo Shorts

The ultimate utility vehicle, the guy wearing these will never have to worry about losing his itinerary or map.  The ripstop cotton and drawstrings are guaranteed to provide comfort, and the relaxed fit makes cargo shorts ideal for hiking, camping, or running errands in between exploits.  Buff up the look with a button-down shirt or fitted tee.

RayBan $129

Victoria Secret

Aviator Sunglasses

Sun cheaters are a great way to journey on your summer rendezvous extravaganzas.  Nothing insinuates a challenge like the classic chic look of aviators, and who wouldn’t want to play FBI, pilot, or spy for a day?  No need to worry about variety; aviators’ polarized, mirrored, or classic styles are sure to keep the spark alive.  This trend isn’t reserved for the Top Gun men’s club anymore; the Angelina Jolies and Nicole Ritchies are now enjoying the lustrous appearance and mystery that comes with wearing aviators.
