  • PROBLEM: Help! I don’t know how to mix patterns 3 of 7

  • PROBLEM: How to style a bathing suit 4 of 7

    How can you wear your bathing suit to pool parties and beachy events without a typical cover-up?

    Solution: "Make the most of your favorite piece by pairing it with seasonal staples like floral shorts, a breezy maxi, or a cotton sundress." ModStylist Amy played up on the peplum trend by turning your bathing suit into a summery-looking shirt.

  • PROBLEM: How to look cute yet casual for a BBQ 5 of 7

    Solution: "Try out a light, printed frock with a cute headband and your fave strappy sandals. After the sun goes down and it's a bit cooler, throw on a wardrobe staple such as a chambray shirt."

  • PROBLEM: How to dress up a maxi dress 6 of 7

    Solution: "You can take it from a day at the beach to date night by swapping your flat sandals for a colorful wedge and adding a statement necklace. Between you and me, sometimes I even keep a sparkly clutch in my oversized day bag!"

  • PROBLEM: How to wear a dress while bike riding 7 of 7

    If a bicycle is your summertime transportation of choice, it can feel like your wardrobe is limited.

    Solution: "A [longer-length] sturdy cotton dress is an excellent choice because it keeps you cool, resists wind gusts, and looks adorable. Pair it with brogues, a circle scarf, and a backpack for your essentials."
