3 Summer Styles That Are Oh-So-Slimming

Look and feel good all season long.

It’s hard to say what the absolute best thing is about summer. The smell of hyacinths? Walking barefoot on thick, green grass? An ice cream cone on a hot night? There are so many awesome things about the summer season, it’s easy to wax poetic. But here’s one thing that’s high on the list: wearing slimming and comfortable clothes without giving up one iota of style.

3 ways to look slim, sleek and super cool this summer

Start with the essential Brigitte Slim Shorts: With a 13-inch seam to the knee and a slim fit through the hips and thighs, these will be your new BFF kind of shorts. They are chic, indispensable and easy! They pull on and come in delicious summer colors — Maraschino Cherry, Papaya Coral, Algiers Blue, Blue Grotto, Sand, Alabaster and Black. The variety gives you lots to work and play with so you can be dressed the best all summer long.

A colorful and dramatic addition to the Slim Shorts is the Cotton-Blend Slub Henley Tee. The tees are super soft, lightly textured and come with a flattering sleeve. The colors are perfect for summer — Soft Nectarine, Maraschino Cherry, Beachside Blue, Summer Berry and Alabaster. These colors are like a gorgeous summer bouquet that you can wear. The Cotton-Blend Slub Henley Tees mix and match easily with the Brigitte Slim Shorts or any other of your favorite slacks.

Another slim-easy option is the Printed Tie-Sleeve Dress. The print is as beautiful as a summer breeze, and the shift design makes it a fun and stunning choice wherever you go. The slightly stretchy fabric is a straight fit from the bust to the hem. The ¾-length oh-là-là tie-sleeves and V-neckline add just the right touches of femininity. Combine this dress with a gold watch and necklace, and you’re ready to jump into any convertible!

Last but definitely not least, the Brigitte Textured Slim Ankle Pants provide both mileage and style. They are not only super cute, they’re adorable with whatever top you’re in the mood for. The Ankle Pants make everybody look good. The better-than-ever front panel is just the stretch you need to feel slim and put together. And the eyelet detail at the hem is, well, yet another reason you may never take them off.

Now pair these pants with a Reversible Tile Print to Butterfly Garden Print Tank, and you’ll be smiling from ear to ear. This tank is easy and lightweight, and it gives you many options. You can wear the dramatic butterfly garden print one day, and then turn it inside out and wear the geometric tile print the next. The convertible neckline lets you wear it as a scoop-neck or a V-Neck. Many choices can make a lady very happy.

Add the Floral-Print Denim Jacket to this whole ensemble, and you’ll seal the deal. The floral on the light denim makes the jacket both feminine and funky. Comfort and class all the way! When you walk into a party with this on, you’ll be sure to make a splash.
