ModClothRetroBikiniFolks, Memorial Day weekend is here, marking the beginning of summer for many and with that—pool season! That’s why I’m sighing for an adorably retro bikini, which is also quite a trendy item this season. It is flattering on absolutely everyone,  highlighting hips for boyish figures but trimming the waist for curvy girls. Aside from it’s spanx-like powers that work miracles on your tummy, the silhouette is so fun and glamorous–just watch your tan lines as they are not as fun!

On a day where I am so far away from my own mother, I’m sighing for the perfect outfit to honor her; and luckily this season is chock full of fun trends that are perfect for Mother’s Day! Gingham is a personal fave of mine because it reminds me of picnics, summer, and all things youthful. The retro pattern is not only glamorous, but it gives me a warm and fuzzy nostalgia similar to that feeling you get when you open a care package from your mom full of goodies from home–it’s everything I’ve ever wanted in a dress, especially today!

Are mixed prints out? Fashion’s getting awfully matchy matchy this season. The beautiful Kerry Washington stepped out in matching separates by Tanya Taylor earlier this week, and she’s not the first to be rocking this retro look. Even with pants there is something so prim and proper about this trend. One of the girliest looks this season, matching separates are just so endearing and polished. Perhaps my favorite part about it, though, is it’s probably the easiest outfit you’ll ever put together. And for those days when you’re feeling a little rambunctious, unmatch your separates with a whole new print for a whole new look!

AlexaChungAGVogueAlexa Chung is no stranger to the Style scene. Alexa started her career in the fashion industry as a teen model before becoming a famed street Style star. A well-known International Icon these days, Alexa is branching into the design world. Her first collaboration debuted early this year with AG Jeans. The easy-to-wear pieces featured hits like a retro denim dress and casual cotton pullovers that have been flaunted by fashion’s finest since the launch. If the success of this collaboration is any indication of what the future holds for Alexa, we’re going to be seeing a whole lot more from this talented Brit.

Another awards night is upon us, folks! That’s why I’m sighing for a Grammy-worthy clutch this week. The Fitzgerald Geometric Clutch by high-end evening bag brand Kotur, a favorite on the red carpet, is everything you could ever want on Grammy night (besides a Grammy, of course). It’s gold, it’s sparkly, and it’s kaleidoscope design is so retro-chic. Lucky for you, you don’t have to be a guest at the Grammy’s to wear it–you can actually rent it here from Rent-the-Runway.
