Dress Yourself: Burn your wardrobe, kids, a new trend has landed

Monday: We all know Mondays are a drag. Pick simple items to make your morning easy.

Guys: You may be wondering why there is a guys’ section here…well, I’m here to help you mix up that wardrobe to avoid wearing a t-shirt and pair of shorts every day. Vineyard Vines’s Saltwater Stripe Collegiate Shirt in Maui Blue and Khaki Broken In Club Shorts are relaxed options.

Gals: Step away from the yoga pants! Don’t sacrifice style for comfort. You can have both with this adorable Lilly Pulitzer Colleen Romper in Bright Navy Hey Sailor. Pair with any summery shoe like these fun Sperry Bahama Boat Shoes in Navy Seersucker Sequins.


Tuesday: Shorts and breezy tops will make the week fly by.

Guys: This striped tank top (no wife beaters here) from Volcom looks great with Gap’s Double Pocket Cargo Shorts in Flint Gray.

Gals: Take it from the boys today with Boyfriend Roll-Up Shorts in Deep Guava paired with the Tribal Print Top, both from Gap.


Wednesday: It’s hump day! Pick colorful pieces to brighten up your day.

Guys: Bright orange shorts will surely make you smile — this pair of Dock Shorts in Gold Fish from Vineyard Vines hits the spot. Combine it with this Brooks Brothers Golden Fleece Novelty Performance Polo in Ivory.

Gals: This Cross-back Sundress from Victoria’s Secret in Sunshine is a perfectly vibrant choice. Throw on these Orchid Pink Abigale Thongs by Tory Burch to complete this colorful look.


Thursday: Summery outfits are the only way to start the school year.

Guys: The Bright Yellow Signature Eagle Polo from Armani Exchange with tan Sperry Top-Sider Original Boat Shoes is a sailboat-worthy combination.

Gals: Forever 21’s Green Boxy High-Low Top and Peach Essential Twill Shorts are a cute and unexpected color summer mix.


Friday: Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! These add-ons are essential to take your look from lectures to parties in no time.

Guys: Rose gold is hot in the watch world right now. Burberry’s Large Chronograph Watch in Rose Gold is a certain conversation starter. If rose gold isn’t your thing, try this sleek Michael Kors watch in Gunmetal.

Gals: Trends include statement pieces like Kendra Scott’s Gold Ainsley Cuff or Alhambra Drop Earrings by Herve Van Der Straeten.


Saturday: Enjoy the weather and make a trip to the beach!

Guys: Shield your eyes from the rays with Prada’s Metal Aviator Sunglasses and wear Polo Ralph Lauren’s Striped Swim Trunks in Orange.

Gals: Dare to be different in this Leopard-print Monokini from Victoria’s Secret. Stella McCartney’s Cat-Eye Sunglasses in Burgundy are the trendy complement to this suit.


Sunday: Heading to the gym doesn’t mean you have to look like a bum. Pick breathable fabrics for your workout.

Guys: Girls will swoon seeing you pump iron in this Pima V-neck from Armani Exchange in Heather Grey. This pairs well with Adidas’s Max Shorts in Light Scarlet/white.

Gals: Lululemon’s seaside dot white tank will keep you cool in the heat with the perfect hip-skimming length. Their airy Sun Sprinter Short in Ray/black makes this ensemble colorful.
