Spend your summer days in style with these must-have looks.

“A day down the Cape is best spent by the beach, so I keep it simple with sunscreen (Goopglow on face, SunBum on body) and a moisturizing lip (Chanel Les Beiges Lip Balm). My go-to outfit is a white linen button down over a Hunza G. suit, with my favorite Beatriz Valenzuela slides. Toss a pair of sunglasses into a straw tote, and you are good to go!”

“I love incorporating motifs and prints of my heritage in my summer looks—like this Persian inspired wrap skirt I have, which perfectly cinches the waist. I find the most amazing pieces in India created by hidden, talented designers.”

“I am a firm believer that you can still wear black in the summer—so when thinking about my perfect outfit for the Cape, I can’t go past my summer staples. I would throw on a little frilled black sundress, and pair it with flat lace-up sandals, a straw boater hat and a mini cross body bag. Lots of layered gold jewelry too! For makeup, simple and dewy is essential for summer (especially in Boston!). A light CC cream paired with mascara, bronzer, blush and highlighter (and don’t forget the SPF!) is all you need.”

“When it comes to summer style, I love to experiment and change things up! Sometimes I love going girly with a fun sundress and other times I LOVE a linen blazer/suit set. Since it's summer, of course whites are a staple. A white bag and white heels pretty much can go with every outfit. This summer is a little different in terms of COVID-19 so there are a lot of cute/trendy masks out there that I've [been] pairing with different looks, as well."
