When I'm not running from Starbucks to the subway in a little sweater, aviators and platforms, you can usually find me in all black and white. Nothing is better to me than a pair of leather pants paired with a really nice white tee by Cheap Monday or Diesel. Not only is it subtle, but it's easy cool. Although with the heat coming our way, leather pants seem to become less and less of an option. I wanted to come up with a few summer looks that still keep that black and white cool, but matched with the rising temperatures. Here, I'm wearing mirror sunnies (one of my summer staples!), paired with a mesh tee by Nastygal and white zip shorts. I love mesh and zippers for summer as well. I like the harsh feel of them on a lightweight summer garment. What are your June staples?
