Best Summer Fashion Lust-Haves and Must-Haves

As the Creative Director of PageDaily, I review so many amazing fashion items every day.  I love curating the high-low to provide women with real value (or offer a selection to those who want to splurge)! Here are my favorites for summer: beach coverups

BEACH COVERUPS Get summer chic with cover ups! The stylish sheer white fabrics and loose flowing sleeves are perfect for throwing on over a bathing suit for poolside or beachside fun. The one size fits all lightweight  Love Quotes – Shiva Versatile Top/Coverup was recently seen on Halle Berry and has a huge celebrity following.  Or, you can opt to rock the animal print trend with Top Shop’s Off White Animal Print Cover Up .  Both of these can also be worn as  tops with a cami underneath.

GIRLY CARDIGANS Add some flair to your basic white cardigans. The lightweight and soft Augden Deauville Ruffle Cardigan is adorned with two rows of washed silk ruffles. Launched in the fall of 2010, the Augden collection comprises of handcrafted sweaters that are handmade and knit from the finest and purest fabrics with remarkable attention to details. I also love draped cardigans such as the long sleeved Chelsea & Theodore Wrap Cardigan from Dillard’s. The romantic tiered ruffles along the open front of the cardigan are perfect with any summer outfit. When the sun goes down and the weather gets a bit chilly, you can’t go wrong with either of these two versatile cardigans that will keep you warm and looking fabulous.

FUN FEDORAS Top off an outfit with a fun fedora.  Melissa Odabash’s Panama Hat, also seen on Cameron Diaz is a perfect choice to keep you in the shade while sipping cocktails by the pool. Melissa Odabash is known for her laid-back yet refined swimwear looks and of course, her hats have that same whimsicality. This one looks great on everyone.  With mark’s Fierce Fedora you will also be “brimming with style.” Each fedora comes with three interchangeable bands in coral, black, and navy floral. Avon mark’s brand ambassador and Twilight actress, Ashley Greene was seen wearing the Fierce Fedora at the Coachella Music Festival.  You can’t go wrong with either one.

BEACH BAGS Stay fashionable this summer with the amazingly stylish yet casual Mulberry Beach Tote Pink Trippy Tiger Print Raffia. The tote bag has two adjustable leather handles to easily carry everything you need for having fun in the sun. It is so gorgeous and chic–I like it as a day bag too. Another favorite for hitting the beach and town is the sturdy and lightweight American Apparel Large Denim Carry-All Bag in white. The newest edition to American Apparel’s accessory collection features a large easy to carry weekend bag made with leather accents and double shoulder straps.
