It’s the middle of Summer in the US, so most places are either hot or very hot. A time to either hang in there and stay cool, or cover up in arctic air conditioning. If you are still shopping for warm weather, here are some items that have worked well on clients and forum members, or just caught my eye and have great reviews.
  • Kurt Geiger Women's Burlington Ankle-Strap Pointed-Toe Pumps: A moderately comfy ankle strap pump for regular volume feet. Beautifully crisp. Runs small so size up.
  • Boden Carrie Jersey Midi Dress: A good dress for Team Broad Shoulders & Shorter Neck. Flattering on curvy body types too. Plenty of length for tall gals. Comes in navy.
  • Madewell Packable Mesa Straw Hat: A nice hat to pack for vacation because it's squash-resistant.
  • J.Crew Pleated chambray midi skirt: This pleated skirt looks great on a curvy or rectangular figure. Not good on apple-shaped body types because of the defined waist. The structure of the stitched down pleats creates a lovely fit. Great length and might run small.
  • Tumi Voyageur Jena Convertible Backpack: I'm a huge Tumi fan because of their commitment to "form follows function" and impeccable quality. This tote becomes a backpack and is as streamlined as can be.
  • Dansko DanskoMinka: Comfy supportive clogs with excellent arch support. Very comfy. Can fit a higher volume foot, especially if you size up. Comes in black.
  • Travel Bottles , Wedama Leakproof Silicone Travel Containers with 5 Pcs TSA Approved Squeezable 3/1.25oz Travel Bottles & Accessories for Cosmetic Shampoo Conditioner Lotion Soap...: A set of leakproof traveling containers for carry on toiletries. They are refillable with a wide lip. Soft and very squeezable so easy to use too. Looks pretty good.
  • Tumi TumiVoyageur Canton Crossbody: A good looking, exceptionally nice quality, and practical casual crossbody that's Sporty Chic. Extremely comfy, lightweight and streamlined. Comes in seven colours.
  • Naot NaotFiona: Extremely comfy and supportive sandals that fit an assortment of foot shapes, but not very low volume feet. Comes in four neutrals.
  • Naot NaotFavorite: Fab smart casual sandal booties that are dressy enough for the office. Comfy, supportive and well made. Great with black cropped pants.
  • Tumi TumiVoyageur Troy Crossbody: This type of crossbody bag is often too small. But leave it to Tumi to add the extra pouch in front that extends the volume and usability of the bag. Beautifully made and organized. Comes in black.
  • Vallina Ankle Strap Sandal: These are relatively comfy, and with a darling block heel. Clean and simple. Can work on a lower volume foot of you size down. Comes in black and red.
  • Moirina Stacked Platform Sandal: Trendy platform sandals that are quite comfy, and come in three colours. Great looking on the foot. They aren't that robust, so don't go pounding the pavements in them.
  • Floreat Neoprene Pencil Skirt: A flattering form-fitting pencil skirt made of very substantial fabric that conceals lumpage and bumpage.
  • Richmond Stretch Cotton Pencil Skirt: A lovely skirt for straight hips and thighs, and a larger waist. Comes in green.
  • A-Line Midi Skirt: A good skirt for a curvy bottom half. Nice length and fun pattern for pattern mixing.
  • Lizzy Asymmetrical Ruffle Hem Skirt: A trendy ruffled wrap skirt that I personally found a little short, but I am in the minority - especially if you're shorter than 5ft 6. It's fabulous on a curvy and rectangular figure with a defined waist. Best with a tucked top. Fab swoosh factor.
  • Self Check Oversize Shirt: If you like wearing oversized architectural shirts with slim bottoms and dainty shoes - try this. It has interesting side and back detailing. Great geometric pattern.
  • Itadara Houndstooth Peplum Top: A dressy and tailored peplum top for Team Curvy to wear over a pencil skirt or wide crops. Good with straight pants too.
  • Palm Tank: Good top for those who can fill it out. Excellent on apple-shaped body types, a larger bust and shorter neck.
  • Rose Album Graphic Tee: A very pricey boxy top. But if tees and skulls the McQueen way are your thing, give it a whirl and make a statement YOUR way.
  • Flutter Sleeve Tee: A flutter sleeve tee that is great on broader shoulders, but works on narrow shoulders too. The white is not that see-through, and the cut looks fab semi-tucked.
  • Drape Wrap Sleeveless Top: A great layering top for under jackets and blazers. Flattering, forgiving and comfortable. Fits an assortment of body types. Comes in three colours.
  • Textured Foulard Ruched Sleeve Top: I have this in a navy stripe and love it. It's form-fitting, well-made and launders well. I love the sleeve detailing and streamlined look. Fab with white jeans.
  • Tina Lenox Tartan Shirt: Impeccable quality and fit on a curvy body type. Look at how beautifully the diagonal stripes have been matched up the centre front. Size down.
  • Eden Top: Slouchy Tee Fabness. Best on those who can fill it out. Size down.
  • DREAM Song Skirt: A very comfy casual skirt that fits most body types and comes in a turquoise floral.
  • Bayou Packable Squishee Fedora: A nice hat to pack for vacation because it's squash-resistant.
  • Cargo Culottes: AMAZING trendy wide utility crops that work as well for a curvy figure as they do on a straight one. They drape beautifully, look dressier than the utility norm. They are NOT streamlined from the side because of the cut of the wrapped front, so consider yourself warned. Flattering in an avant-garde way, and gorgeous fabric.
  • Amour Vert Amour Vert 'Agnes' Surplice Tank | Nordstrom: A fab top for those who enjoy showcasing their shoulders. Fluid yet structured and quite alluring. Might run large.
  • Amour Vert Amour Vert 'Mayr' V-Neck Tee | Nordstrom: A good tee for a larger bust and shorter neck. Fluid yet structured on the hips which tempers the volume.
  • Check Seersucker Button Up Shirt: If you enjoy classic crisp button-down shirts - try this. The fabric is SUBLIME. It's a crease-resistant seersucker that is soft to the touch. Very well made, and especially for the price. Size down.
  • Sleeveless Cotton Chambray Shirtdress: A classic sleeveless shirtdress with plenty of length. No arm hole gaping. Best on a curvier figure because of the A-line shape. Size down.
  • Gracie Bermuda Shorts: These PULL- ON Bermuda shorts are comfy and easy to wear. Fits an assortment of body types because they mould to the body, but do not cling. They stretch out during the day so don't order them roomy. They might run big unless you are very curvy. Comes in eight colours.
