Holly’s May Hot List

May means Dallas’ wardrobe has officially transitioned to heat-friendly fashion. And as the temperatures rise, so does our interest in this season’s sizzling spring staples. Here are my top picks for May.


It seems that no matter how many times we tackle this trend, it keeps coming back for more. But this season, denim is about more than just jeans. This go-around, we’re seeing lighter denim options such as this breezy Lasse jumpsuit from Club Monaco and McGuire Marino denim skirt from J.Crew. This chambray all-day sleeveless dress from Tommy Bahama is another option for sporting denim when the temperatures are high. If you plan to take this trend 9-to-5, try something subtle and sophisticated such as this Drew chambray ankle pant and blazer set from The Limited. Want your denim in the bag? Sling on the Mercer satchel 30 from Coach.


Cropped Jumpsuits 
Who doesn’t love a good jumpsuit? Not only are they flattering, but they also make you look like you put in hours of effort. This season’s cropped looks are a bit more playful and allow you to dress them up or down depending on the occasion. Take this 1.State culotte option from Belk, for example. You could wear this to work or an after-hours gathering with ease. This Liisa cropped jumpsuit from BCBG is both classy and unique, with its angelic white color contrasting with the peekaboo twisting up front. For a more casual option, this printed flowing jumpsuit from Zara is perfect for an afternoon outside, or try this strapless jumpsuit from H&M for a dressier take on the floral pattern.


Wrap Skirts
A wrap skirt is the ultimate summer staple. It’s versatile enough to dress up or down and allows you to show off just enough (tanned) leg. This H&M tasseled option is a favorite for both night and day activities. The Lia asymmetrical wrap skirt from BCBG offers a longer hemline for those who like to show off their legs — but not too much. A slightly dressier option can be found at Express in this hi-lo midi skirt. This knotted wrap skirt from Zara is another excellent choice for those who love the wrap trend but need to dress it up a tad. Plus, the vivid pistachio hue is divine.


Wooden Details
As summer approaches, I find myself drawn to bohemian-inspired extras, and this season it’s all about wooden accents! These Kyra high-heel sandals from BCBG are a perfect way to dip your toe into this trend. Same with these Aimee platform sandals by Hinge from Nordstrom. These wooden hoops from Zara wouldn’t be out of place at the most elegant of affairs, and this Simone asymmetrical wood clutch from BCBG screams high fashion. Its magnetic snap closure makes it easy to carry, and its amazing texture comes from wood, cotton, polyester and acrylic materials. And keep your pool party schedule in check with one of Mistura’s uniquely elegant wooden watches.

As you see, this season’s trends extend far beyond the typical maxi dress and sexy sandals that usually pop up this time of year. We’re excited to see all the pieces you score at Galleria Dallas while shopping for summer.
