Summer! Memorial Day has come and gone which means one thing: it’s summer in the city, folks! With let’s-wear-white and bring-on-the-sun battle cries in her mind, our Lauren stormed her local Goodwill in search of this week’s Goodwill Gem: White Hot Summer Shades.
In a way, summer style is the same for everyone. No matter what your personal aesthetic, it’s really all about looking cool in a relaxed kind of way – about being chic without even trying. And with a few key pieces snagged at your local Goodwill, like these hot white shades, you can easily pull off that effortlessly cool look this summer.
The bright white plastic frames are right on trend this summer. They’ll look brilliant with some of the season’s hottest hues, like eye-catching neons or soft and pretty pastels. The large lenses will easily protect your eyes and the sensitive skin that surrounds them, and will ensure you look fabulous while you take care of yourself in the hot sun.
Since these sunglasses are such a pure, bright white, they’ll go with absolutely anything in your summer wardrobe, from flowing, feminine sundresses and heeled sandals to your favorite swimsuit. For a casually chic day-about-town look, try throwing on your most-loved pair of jeans or denim shorts and a comfy, but still cute, tee decorated with a funky graphic print or vivid color.
The t-shirt I’ve picked here is perfect for summer, in a pretty pink, with a simple yet striking abstract design. Topped off with my white-hot new shades and a slightly structured straw hat to keep me looking and feeling cool, this easy outfit quickly becomes a fun and stylish summer weekend look.
