The Edit: 10 Statement Sandals We Love This Summer

Statement-Sandal-Marquee

As I write this, it’s 89 degrees outside, but it feels like 3282359 degrees—in my professional opinion—because it’s 50 percent humidity. When you can basically feel the moisture in the air, the last thing you want to do is pile on the layers in the morning. So, because you can’t wear a bathing suit to work, take the guesswork out of your a.m. outfit prep and start pairing basic with some statement-making sandals. We’ve found ten pairs that look just as good with jeans and a tee as they do with a work-appropriate shift. It’ll be your end-of-summer uniform in no time.

Sometimes it can be tricky to gauge the extent of a sale, particularly a sale announced via email blast. Is it a store full of markdowns? Just a rack? Maybe a bin? Are there coupons and a secret handshake involved? You only really know what’s in store until you’re, well, in the store. So I did some recon at Erdon on Friday afternoon. Let’s put it this way: There’s an entire room dedicated to discounted designer merch.

The Edit: 9 Ways to Wear Embroidery This Summer

The-Edit

When it first occurred to me to do to a roundup of embroidery for The Edit this week, I found myself reciting a Miranda Priestly a la The Devil Wears Prada line: “Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking.” (Except in my head it was, “Embroidery? For summer?”) Embroidery isn’t exactly a trailblazing summer trend, but the typical iteration is more likely to be seen on a pair of ancient Levi’s than on a polished jacket or a pair of barely-there d’orsay flats. Here, 9 ways to make embroidery look polished and chic this summer. Miranda Priestly be damned.

So gorg, right? | Image via Flash Tattoos.

Temporary tattoos are having a major moment right now (stay tuned for a roundup of our favorites!), and let us just say, they are So. Much. Better. than the ones you buy from quarter machines. We were first alerted to these metallic beauties when Geisha House owner Cortney Cohen told us shoppers were basically scooping up the temporary tats in droves: “People have been—no joke—OBSESSED with these.” And we can totally see why.

The-Edit-Mini-Skirts

If this hot, sticky weather has you in a style rut (no, a clutch doesn’t double as a hand-fan), don’t fret: Mini skirts are the freshest way to stay cool and bare some leg when the temperatures soar. But before you start stressing about the implications of wearing a mini in the city, the new polished iterations pair just as nicely with a structured blazer as they do with an oversized tee (the ultimate warm weather outfit). So, rather than cowering in the air conditioning until September, snag one of these effortlessly chic minis and show off those gams with pride.
