What to Wear During This Unpredictable Summer.

We’re so confused about this so-called summer weather. We don’t know if we should expect hot days, breezy evenings, sweaty can’t stand it humidity, showers, downpours or tornados (knock on wood). But Rachel Comey’s Capelet top is the perfect transition piece. Can be worn as a blouse or backwards as a light cardigan cover-up.

Caught Necking: Scrap the scarf for this artful collar

These handmade lace collars from Heather Martin may look avant-garde, but Kasha Bilobram, owner of the chic Fawn boutique, disagrees. “Put it on with a simple dress or jeans a blazer, and you’re instantly dressed,” she says. “It’s effortless, and they make an ordinary outfit interesting.”

We like them because they’re an artful mix of the trendy chunky necklaces we’re seeing everywhere and the lightweight scarves that Torontonians can’t get enough of.
