While this summer kicked off like no other we’ve known, don’t ditch all of your fun-in-the-sun plans just yet. Even if you’re not jetting off to the tropics, you can still channel that colorful resort vibe right here in the ILM. Summer is the time to go bold and rule those quirky retro prints like bright flowers, stripes, and even gingham check.

The usual classics of the season – wraps and oversized T-shirts – still take their rightful place poolside, doing double duty as both dresses and swim cover-ups.

The bra top is also making a splash. Interchangeable with your bikini top, it is another perfect chameleon piece for going from daytime sun to evening fun in one stroke.

And the No. 1 insider tip for summer? The answer lies at your feet … Anything with a square toe means you’re in the fashion know.
