HEAD TO TOE DAY-NIGHT

The general languidness of mid-August (plus the periodic showers in the forecast this week) has us craving the sartorial simplicity of the sneaker more than ever.

Our love of wearing sneakers with everything is hardly a secret. We love the minimalist design and versatility of these Nike Court Majestics. Pair them with a decidedly un-athletic outfit for a cool juxtaposition. This dress by Rebecca Taylor is super wearable, while the edgy “white noise” print complements the urban vibe of the shoes. Accessorize with a sculptural cuff like this statement piece by Maison Martin Margiela, or try this similar version by Alexis Bittar for a fraction of the price. Rather than coordinating the look with a black, white or bold color bag, we chose this Loeffler Randall satchel in a like-minded yet contrasting print to really play up the patterns. For evening, swap out the kicks and headphones for heels and earrings, and you’re good to go.

IF YOU COULD ONLY BUY JUST ONE PIECE

While we’re on the subject of sneakers, our latest obsession is with the new Nike Flyknits—especially the Air Max style. Aesthetically, we love the bright, bold color combinations and Missoni-esque woven look of the uppers. Performance-wise, we’re loving the ultra lightweight, sock-like fit the knit body provides. The polyester yarn is woven tighter in areas where support is needed and looser where flexibility is key. Plus, the soles have the classic Air Max technology that provides ample support and cushioning on the treadmill, city streets and beyond. Pair with black leggings, a black cut-out tee and a patterned sports bra.

HEAD TO TOE CASUAL LOOK

A packable raincoat is the fashionable antidote to unpredictable August downpours.

If you’re ready to add a new season staple to your wardrobe right now, we’re loving Sea's eyelet-cotton top. You can pair with skirts and pants come fall. Right now, wear it to upgrade a pair of cut-off denim shorts. To chic up the look, opt for a gold cuff such as this one by Kenneth Jay Lane or this less expensive option . Lighter colored sandals always make your legs look leaner and longer, so opt for a pair of tan sandals. Finish the entire look off with your best accessory: this packable raincoat by Steven Alan. It has an ingenious flap across the back that allows you to fold the jacket into itself, creating a small, packable pouch to stuff inside your bag.
