Now that summer has unofficially arrived, we know you have plenty on your mind—from vacations to road trips, parties to barbecues, blockbuster films to beach reads. As such, it is hard to keep up with all the major happenings taking place in the fashion world, which is where our latest edition of The Hot List comes in. We have picked out six things you need to know about in June—from the latest shopping news to where you will find us. So, click through to discover what we are excited about this month.
Banana Republic x Trina Turk
There are many collections coming out this summer, but if any collection is as perfect for summer as this one, we have yet to find it. Yes, Trina Turk and Banana Republic have teamed up on a slew of summer-ready pieces—from maxi dresses to bandeau bikinis. To check it out, you will need to head to BananaRepublic.com on June 7. Prices will start at $35—who can say no to that?
Forgive us, but we have pinning fever. Yes, ever since we joined Pinterest a few months back we have been pinning like crazy—not to mention re-pinning. We have six boards at the moment that run the gamut from fashion through to street style through to foodie fun and we are always looking to find new pinnable pictures. So, we ask: follow us on Pinterest and we’ll follow you in return. Let the pinning fun begin!
We are already super-excited that summer is nearly here, but H&M’s new swim collection has us more excited than we thought possible. From printed bikinis and one-pieces through to kaftans and cover-ups, the collection has everything we need for a sunny day by the pool. Plus, as always, the collection is beyond budget-friendly, which means we can change our outfit every day—and who can say no to that? Click here for H&M stores near you.
