Summer White Styling with Melissa Chataigne
Style expert and TV host, Melissa Chataigne, is on a mission to empower people through style. She uses her platform to help women feel confident in their own skin while taking charge of their personal style. What’s she most excited to wear this summer? Cool and bright white. From accessories that pop to staples to wear anywhere, she’s finding serenity in the chaos in this calming hue. Check out how she styles her fave pieces and where she’s wearing them, from heading to the desert to hitting the beach and lounging at home.
“I absolutely fell in love with Sunshine Hart Kimono in cream. It’s so breathable and versatile for desert adventures and long days on the sand. I styled it with my favorite cutoffs and also with a sexy one piece for the beach.”
“Versatility and comfort are crucial in summer. The Pearl Positano Shorts are with me for all my summer adventures. I styled them with a vintage Hawaiian shirt from my mother’s closet. Since she passed away in November, I like to wear something from her to always feel connected. These shorts are perfect for desert adventures and comfortable to wear over a swimsuit at the beach with an easy-to-wear kimono.”
“Nothing feels more like summer than white sunnies and florals. Since we are in quarantine, we’re all dressed up with no place to go but I’m finding joy in simple pleasures. This look was inspired by the movie “Grey Gardens.” I styled the White Flora Sunglasses with a maxi caftan and white sneakers for easy everyday elegance.”
“What’s more classic than a white tee? It’s a versatile closet staple for all seasons. As a stylist, I like to teach my online community how to #styleandrepeat items in your closet at least three ways, which is always my go-to style tip. I styled the White Wash Pacific Tee by LACAUSA with high waisted jeans and simple heels for a work from home look, paired it with faux leather pants and a chunky necklace for social distance dining al fresco, and layered it underneath a cami dress with white sneakers for running errands. This summer is about learning how to make your closet work for you with sustainable fashion choices. Check out my weekly #styleandrepeat Mondays on IG.”
