[OWN] The Little Black Essentials You Need this Summer

Summer is a season with its own specific set of style challenges. Enter the L.B.E. (little black essentials.) Like your LBD these accessories rise to just about any style challenge from dressing up basics to supporting you in all right places.


The Challenge: Pairing up your go-to summer dress

The solution: M. Gemi’s Baciami sandals are just fancy enough that you’ll want to take them for cocktails yet the comfortable elastic makes this shoe slip-free when things start to heat up on the dance floor.

The Challenge: Pool party attire 

The solution: MaliaMillsHellYes pleather bustier bikini, because this super versatile piece is believable with jeans yet can easily transition to the water.


The Challenge: Dressing up casual staples 

The solution: Finell’s directional leather clutch can luxe up even a simple jeans and tee combo, adding just enough interest to make staple pieces feel dinner and drinks worthy.


The Challenge: Sheer dress situation 

The solution: The SPANX Power Panty offers seamless support which means that those sheer summery fabrics won’t cause an unwanted Marilyn Monroe moment.


The Challenge: Looking cool when it’s a billion degrees 

The solution: Selima Optique’s sunglasses lend instant style cred to any outfit with the sort of ease we look for in a summer accessory.

The Challenge: Sticky weekend getaway situations 

The solution: Baggu’s roomy weekend over-the-shoulder tote can pack it all away (but looks a lot breezier than a wheeled suitcase) and folds up when you realize that your rental is a lot smaller than the pictures.
