Holly’s June Hot List

It’s June, which means you can finally wear white without fear. It’s also officially hot, hot, hot in Texas. No going back down the thermometer now. In the spirit of summer, here are the looks heating up my closet this month.


Cat-eye/Round Sunglasses
Sunglasses are where form meets function. This season’s crop of distinctive lens shapes offers the sexiness of the classic cat-eye and the cool, hipster vibe of round shades. These tortoise lenses by Ray-Ban from Apex by Sunglass Hut instantly elevate your look with their sleek take on a retro shape. Add a subtle pop of pink to your look with Dior sideral 1 sunnies from Solstice. The pastel shade and round lenses are pure glam. These vintage-y Tova round wayfarer sunglasses from BCBGeneration offer an eye-catching (sorry, couldn’t resist) take on the round lens trend. If you’re searching for a steal, head to Forever 21 to pick up these gradient cat-eye sunglasses for less than $6. Meow!


Long Vests 
This summer’s fashion staple can be elegant or boho-casual depending on the style you choose. The Luiza vest from Marciano is a flirty option for date night with its chic shawl collar and revealing shoulder cutouts. For a look that’s part demure part daring, you can’t pass up this Jun & Ivy lace duster vest from Francesca’s. The dainty ivory lace offers a seductive glimpse into whatever you decide to wear underneath. If you want something a little sportier, Guess’ Anja military vest is a polished but casual option. For the ultimate boho accessory, pick up this never waist vest from BCBGeneration. It could even pass as a swimsuit cover-up. And this linen waistcoat from Zara is a super versatile piece that can be paired with jeans, shorts and even dresses. 


Cutout Swimsuits
This year’s swim trend couples the comfort of a one-piece with the sexiness of a two-piece via strategically placed cutouts. This low-back one-piece from Tommy Bahama offers a sweet bow detail along with a subtle but sassy cutout. Or keep your style black and white with this Kenneth Cole number from Belk, featuring a flattering and sophisticated crisscross pattern. You can still take advantage of the cutout trend with a two-piece like this BCA bikini from Nordstrom, or opt for a monokini style such as this vivid Aztec-print number by Jessica Simpson at Macy’s.

Sassy Shorts
Go beyond chinos and try one of this summer’s whimsical styles of shorts. These printed bermudas from Zara are a fun and quirky addition to your summer shorts lineup. For a more graphic look, these colorful diagonal stripe knit shorts from Express add a dose of wow to any outfit. The chambray flounce shorts by Guess sport a playful ruffle that could jazz up any tank, tee or bikini top. If your look demands a true work of art, these Topshop Matisse floral print shorts from Nordstrom are too good to pass up. And because gingham is all the rage right now, I couldn’t leave out these Amber seersucker shorts from Club Monaco, which sport a charming scalloped hem.

Don’t let the sun set on these summer must-haves. Warm weather offers the perfect opportunity to experiment with color and varying silhouettes. All my favorite trends and more are waiting for you at Galleria Dallas.
