Transitional clothing is what spring and summer is all about. For example on Makeena, our model search winner last year, a midi-length silk chiffon shift dress by Robbie Bee is paired with more casual accessories to give it a daytime look. Double duty is the watchword for key pieces in a successful wardrobe. By using the Style & Co. turquoise handbag as our pop of color, we immediately get an informal vibe for the otherwise more delicate and girly floral dress. LA brand black flats don’t provide any competition to the bag, and the eclectic jewelry help promote the fashion fun. Black wooden bangles, simple earrings, a vintage white beaded bracelet, crystal flower headband, and trendy round sunglasses read her as a stylish bohemian spirit. After her busy day, she can simply pull her hair back into a sleek ponytail, trade out the flats for high heel sandals, the turquoise bag for a beaded clutch, and the jewelry for a single statement cuff, and she’d be all set for an evening date! A gorgeous dress like this is a prime illustration of the kind of items that keep your style classic and up to date at the same time!
