Chic Summer Fashion: Get Ready for the Haute Wave

These summertime looks sourced from Lawrenceville shops will keep you feeling cool and stylish.

Summertime, and the stylin’ is oh-so-easy. Dressing during the dog days of summer should be neither overthought nor overwrought. When it’s hotter than blazes outside, why bother to make every fashion statement a compound sentence? Keep your outfitting as effortless as reciting the alphabet by making casual moments strong and sweet, as in floral-print skinny pants worn with a tank top under a cropped moto jacket. Update and upgrade your shorts game with a scalloped hem and a matching jacket, perfect for young ladies who brunch. Keep your frock game fresh and cool with a dress in a dusty pastel or bright solid, or in an airy textile with eyelets or lace. For a special night out, perhaps consider a creamy floor-length jersey number with gold zippers framing an open back — giving you a dramatic exit. We found all of these looks on the rise along the main drag of a neighborhood on the rise. 

Lawrenceville’s reputation as a fashion destination continues to increase as more shops open and existing ones expand. We set our summer shoot in a neighborhood restaurant near some of our stores to showcase a sample of all there is to explore.

All hail the nouveau-chic Lawrenceville!
