ZAP STYLE: Summertime Must Haves

Just because we are wearing less fabric to beat the summertime heat, doesn’t mean our looks need to be less exciting! In fact, this is the time to have fun with wild colors, prints, graphics and textures. Since we are always on the hunt for the next statement making trends, we have broken down this season’s must-have styles for you to shop ‘til you drop. As a special treat for our fellow Chicagoans, you can grab everything below at Block 37. Yes, a one stop shop because we know convenience is key.

The LWD will set you free.
Trade out your cold weather little black dress for a free-flowing little white number, like this one from Anthropologie. From weddings to brunch, to date night and errands this one piece eliminates the stress of deciding what to wear!

Slim-shades for the real Slim Shady in you.
This retro style frame is making a serious comeback. From one celebrity to the next, everyone is loving this refreshing, slim oval shape as they break away from their typical oversized sunnies. 

Wild textures (Pom-poms, fringe and ruffles, oh my!).
This trend is definitely a personal favorite. These surprising textural elements have the ability to liven up any staple piece in your wardrobe. Your standard, white button down now has voluminous bell sleeves! Your white sneaks can now have a pom-pom friends perched atop them. And why not add fringe to the hem of your jeans?!

Straw bags are beach bags no-more.
This season has been all about reinventing the classics, and straw bags were part of the pack! This traditional summer bag, usually oversized and perfect for the beach, has become every it-girl’s go to for day, night and all hours in between.
