During the hot summer months, when layers are pretty much always out of the question, you have to rely on stand alone pieces that are chic all by themselves. For me, embroidered blouses are exactly this, and should definitely be on your summer shopping list.

Wear yours with denim cut-offs and a straw hat for a casual chic look, with a pencil skirt and simple strappy pumps for a summery sophisticated look, or like I did here with white denim and a pair of metallic sandals for an effortless weekend summer look.

The loose, flowy fit gives it the effortless look, the lightweight fabric keeps it nice and cool for hot days, and the embroidery makes it special and chic. Have I convinced you to buy one yet? There are lots of gorgeous ones out there, so I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite picks. Happy Monday!
