Alessandra Ambrosio was recently seeing strolling through LA wearing a gorgeous front-slit floral skirt and a Bella Dahl Denim Bomber Jacket in “River” wash. We love the combination of a chambray jacket and a flowing, summery skirt. Some metallic arm candy and simple flat sandals round out the casual daytime look. You could also layer a swimsuit beneath rather than a tank, for a transitional daytime to beach look. What can we say? We’ve got summer fun on the brain.

Update your denim look this summer with a cuffing technique you may not have tried yet: the single fold cuff. Honestly WTF spotted this trend everywhere around the world, but it’s making waves in NYC as women become more adventurous and stray from the skinny jean trend. This cuff works best on wider leg pants, whether stovepipe style or boyfriend. Will you be trying it?
