Beachy Summer Style

As hot and humid as it can get in the summer, at least we have the beach as a buffer. But how do we stay stylish in the heat?

By popping by Dovecote, of course!

We have the answers to all your style woes. Oversize linen dresses from European Culture are breathable and so cute. The classic Teton tunic from CP Shades is always a winner and makes for an effortless beach cover-up.

Roberta Roller Rabbit makes floaty tops that take you easily from sunny beach day to a stroll along the boardwalk at night. Johnny Was’ boho prints were made for date nights on the coast, Mahi Gold dresses are adorably nautical, and the ever-changing bright colors of Matta make for a sweet accessory, whether worn as a shawl, pareo, or scarf. We love them in shades of blue, such as Indigo and Malibu.

Finish with mother of pearl flower earring from Ann Lightfoot, a Fairchild-Baldwin necklace, or a graphic cocktail ring from Lucas Jack. Pair with Katharine Page sandals or sporty yet feminine flats from Seychelles.

Who says your style has to suffer in the summer? Not us! Let our stylists know you are looking for that perfect summer look and we’ll be sure to steer you in the right direction!
