Spring is here and it’s time to fire things up for warm temps ahead! We’re excited to get hot and spicy this season and next–filling our closets with fun bright tops & bottoms, statement details, festive patterns and of course, SANDALS! Time to get those toes done, because we’re showing them off all season long. What gets me most excited is getting to experiment with bold colors, silhouettes, new season trends, and breezy outfits for music festivals, vacations, and super hot weather.
Our inspo for our Hot in Havana lookbook is no other than Havana, Cuba–and you know ya girl Camila Cabelo has been giving us major vibes with her hit single “Havana” (we’ve had it on repeat). We’re excited to bring to you a collection that feels as vacation-y and resort-inspired as we can possibly imagine. Picture yourself walking down the colorful old buildings in the streets of Havana in breezy fabrics, vibrant colors and patterns, and super flattering silhouettes. If you haven’t already booked a summer vacation, you’ll want to after this.
Along with lightweight chiffon fabrics and florals that are a staple in our wardrobes, tiered shoulder and neckline details elevate a piece like a romper. The layered effect adds dimension and texture to an otherwise simple silhouette. Talk about keeping things interesting! Paying attention to trims and textures are just what you need to revamp your spring/summer #ootd’s.
When we said we wanted texture and breezy silhouettes, this is just what we meant. Fun and inspired details like a pom trim on an exaggerated tiered one shoulder top give us all the vibes. Spring and summer outfits shouldn’t be boring. Amp it up with tiered ruffle hem pants like these, and you’re ready for a night of dancing *cue music*.
Nothing says “breezy” like a cold shoulder dotted chiffon piece. You’ll feel lighter than air and cooler than a cucumber in this lightweight material. The Hot in Havana collection features a line of dotted swiss chiffon–careful not to buy up the whole collection; they’re ALL amazing. Style these airy outfits with delicate touches of hardware like earrings, bracelets, and necklaces to really take things up!
A staple this season (and next) is the smocked or shirred detailing–an elasticated bodice that hugs your body, and you wouldn’t believe this–it’s comfy. You know we love our rompers, and this is no exception. Add on the tie knot “sleeves” and romantic floral pattern, and we’re absolutely obsessed. This is the type of piece you can style for hot weather or cooler temps, but let’s not think about that right now… spring is here and summer is just around the corner, so we’re excited to rock these firey pieces all seasons long.
