Understated pieces are my go to pieces for summer. This is the one season when everything is easy and everyone is easygoing . This is just one of the reasons why summer is the best season for clothes.Take this white blouse from Zara , just so crisp white and gorgeous. This is one of my favorite blouses to wear during the summer months. It looks really flattering on me and goes with so many out fits. The mileage on this blouse is a long one for sure. It is also very comfortable in the ninety degree outside weather we are having this week in New York city. I wanted to dress it up a bit by paring it with these black shorts from the house of Dolce& Gabbana to give it a more sleek sophisticated look. Fashion that functions is always in style. That is why so many things in your closet are made of cotton, it is breathable, comfortable and washable. It is high end and low maintenance . White blouses like this one from Zara are constantly in rotation for me during the summer months. If you want to dress them up you can always add fabulous accessories like the Dolce & Gabbana crown.
