Olivia Munn’s summer style is spot on with this denim skirt look! She paired the brightly embroidered skirt with a pair of bold peep toe stilettos with red detailing that plays off the colors of the skirt.

Olivia Palermo never disappoints when it comes to fashion and has proven that just because summer means lighter layers doesn’t mean our style needs to suffer.

She also rocked a super summery straw bag and draped a navy duster coat glamorously over her shoulders to protect her from the rain.

Kate Middleton’s sweeping maxi dress is the epitome of summer style. She looks flawless in this cherry red color that is quite different than the typical neutral color palette the Duchess tends to gravitate towards.

Maxi dresses are breezy and light but are always a fashion win, especially when they are styled by fashionistas like Kate Middleton!
