Here at Mama’s A Rolling Stone, we make it our personal mission to arm you with all the inspiration you can handle when a new season begins. Accordingly, now that summer has officially arrived, we have rounded up a fresh batch of outfit inspiration that is sure to see you through summer in style. In today’s Model Style story, we are shining the spotlight on four of our favorite model muses—Alessandra Ambrosio, Selita Ebanks, Gisele Bundchen, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—and giving you the scoop on what they wear on hot summer days and how they wear it! So, grab a cool drink and read on for all the need-to-know details!
Nothing will get you in the summer spirit faster than a bright white sun dress, so make sure you look to Alessandra Ambrosio for inspiration. Back in May, Alessandra was spotted out and about in Brentwood, California, wearing a white sun dress—belted loosely at the waist—and leather sandals. The look definitely has a cool Californian vibe and is perfect for sunny days at the beach or a quick vacation! If you find yourself drawn to this look, pick up Madison Marcus’s Infinite Dress ($285) or Guess’s Ingrid Crochet Dress ($98) and belt it with a simple belt like Motif 56’s Lauren Belt ($29.70). To finish, add a pair of Steve Madden’s Guesst T-Strap Sandals ($60.90).
Attending an event in summer can be tricky. Although you want to look suitably stylish, you also want to be comfortable and cool. Thankfully, Selita Ebanks has mastered the art of summer event style! In May, Selita attended the New Yorkers for Children cocktail party wearing a pleated blue skirt, a cream blouse, and chunky platforms. By sticking to breezy silhouettes and a cool color palette, Selita has created an effortlessly chic ensemble that will keep her cool in balmy weather. To try this look, grab ASOS’s Pleated Knitted Skirt ($68.96) or Topshop’s Ruched Waist Pleated Full Skirt ($60) and pair it with Topshop’s Silk Blouse ($116). Then, simply add Enzo Angiolini’s Illume Booties ($139).
Even when you have to tackle a list of errands and you want to relax in a low-key ensemble, it is easy to put together a low-key look with a chic twist—just look to Gisele Bundchen for inspiration! Earlier this month, Gisele was spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing a bohemian blouse, cropped jeans, and simple silver sandals. The look is unfussy, yes, but it stays true to Gisele’s hippie-luxe style and is also practical, which is perfect for a modern-day mama! Ready to try this look? Pick up Winter Kate’s Sunflower Top ($95) or Antik Batik’s Giny Tunic ($195) and pair it with Siwy’s Hannah Slim Crop Jeans ($163). Finish with a pair of Tory Burch’s Emmy Flat Slingback Sandals ($195).
If you are lucky enough to be heading to the beach this summer—whether you are jet-setting off on vacation, or just taking a day trip—Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is your go-to for fresh outfit ideas! Earlier this month, Rosie took a stroll on the beach in Malibu wearing a draped sweater and a printed wrap skirt, both by Helmut Lang. Happily, the look is surprisingly versatile—when paired with strappy sandals, this look will easily transition from the beach to dinner. To assemble an equally chic look, grab Madewell’s Saltspring Sweater-Top ($98) and pair it with Nightcap Clothing’s Long Skirt ($143) or Kettle Black’s Papersack Skirt ($189). Add your favorite heels and you are all set.
