The Six to Sunday Summer Survival Guide

From laid back California cool to classic brights & urban chic, there’s a look (and great accessory) for everyone
Six to Sunday

There’s something about the summer season that makes us all want to slow down, chill out and enjoy the long days. It’s also a time when dressing usually gets pared down in favor of a less-is-more approach.

But that doesn’t mean we abandon style.

The Six to Sunday team talked about what summer style means to all of us—those accessories and clothing pieces that tell the world who we are and that we wear on repeat—and it became clear that everyone had their own vibe.

Here’s where we landed.

Quiet Luxury

“My summer intention is all about making more room in my life for creativity, so that means embracing minimalism. The less time it takes to plan my look, the more time I have to dream, think and create. I like a neutral palette and chic, simple designs.” - Destiny M.

Classic Brights

“Hailing from the Northeast, summer white has always been a staple in my wardrobe. But since relocating to Miami, I’ve really come to fall in love with color. It’s everywhere around me, and the more I wear it, the more I notice the instant mood boost I get from it. This summer, I’m combining the two—summer white punctuated with bold and bright pops of color, and I’m absolutely loving it." - Rachel S.

Susan: Urban Chic

“I’m a true New York City gal, and while so many people love to escape to beaches and lakes in the summer months, I’m so happy to be in Manhattan! I wear lots of black and white (it’s the uniform of the city), shoes that are made for walking (miles on end), and a few super chic, classic accessories to keep it stylish (and never sloppy).” - Susan S.

California Cool

“I like an effortless yet luxe look during the summer—I want to be pulled together and cool, but I don’t want to look overdone. I live in Southern California, so I’m going for that laid-back style vibe with just the right amount of glamor.” - Alex J.
