We’ve just reached the halfway point of summer, meaning from here on out it’s all hot and hazy—however, that doesn’t mean that style has to suffer, too. Making the sidewalks their own personal runway, stars have been taking to the streets in chic ensembles fit for the red carpet but meant to be worn off-duty.
And whether in trousers, skirts, or barely there shorts, the prevailing look thus far is a new take on ultra feminine fashion, lifting elements from the sixties and seventies.
Kim Kardashian West and sister Kendall Jenner, Blake Lively, and Victoria Beckham all went ladylike with their palette, opting for hues of blush and rose.
While West and Lively also took a fall favorite—the statement coat—into the warmer climates through clever coordination, Jenner and Beckham opted for voluminous silhouettes to offset their fitted tops.
Also keeping things light were Beyoncé and Rihanna, who kept city-cool and discreet (relatively speaking) in shades of snow white. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence and Sienna Miller slipped into flares and distressed cutoffs, respectively, modernizing festival girl style with subtle nods to seventies glamour.
But in a league of their own were Angelia Julie Pitt and Amal Clooney, jet-setters who make everyday tasks look effortlessly elegant through simple accessorizing.
Jolie Pitt donned an oversize hat and shades for her children’s soccer game, while Clooney lifted her vintage look to new heights with a pair of complementary stilettos. Already the summer is sizzling with stylish looks, and there’s still more than a month to go—we can’t wait to see the rest of the season unfold on the street.
