modern classic: 3 style sketches for summer

Outfit idea featuring a style sketch of the Athena Dress by Universal Standard in true blue and the Overlapping Graduated Earrings by Wraptillion. Text on image reads: + sandals + coral lip = summer brunch.

Dreaming of summer? I’ve been sketching some new outfit ideas, mixing new pieces with wardrobe staples and classic earring designs from my Circling collection. Here’s what to wear for a weekend brunch, to a summer art festival in the city, and out for a date night on the water, whether you’re headed to your favorite waterfront restaurant or a tropical vacation. I really love Universal Standard‘s knit dress designs — they’re so clean and modern, and I love their inclusive sizing! I hope you enjoy these style sketches!

Above, my sketch of the Athena Dress in true blue from Universal Standard feels like a perfect pairing with the classic hoops of my Overlapping Graduated Earrings. Just add a coral lip and your favorite sandals, and you’re set for brunch this weekend (with your best friends…or someone new.)

Outfit idea featuring a style sketch of the Tesino Washed Jersey Dress by Universal Standard in olive (brown) and the Small Concentric Earrings by Wraptillion. Text on image reads: + red lip + sunglasses + modern mules = urban art festival.

Above, my style sketch of the Tesino Washed Jersey Dress from Universal Standard in Olive (which looks more like a khaki brown on my screen), paired with the geometric circles of my Small Concentric Earrings. I’m thinking clean, modern, subtle but striking — perfect for a stroll through an urban summer art festival.

Outfit idea featuring a style sketch of the Geneva V-Neck Dress by Universal Standard in navy and the Overlaid Earrings by Wraptillion. Text on image reads: + strappy heels + silver nails + edgy bob = date night on the water.

Above, my style sketch of the Geneva V-Neck Dress by Universal Standard in navy, paired with the little modern dangles of my Overlaid Earrings for just a touch of sparkle. This easy, summery outfit looks perfect for date night on a beach or a lakefront restaurant, don’t you think?

Of course, these classic modern earring styles aren’t season-specific, and you don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe to put your own outfit together! Whether you’re looking for bold statement earrings or minimalist dangles, try the Circling collection.

(Am I the only one who decides to change up their nail color while typing? Whatever — I’m still loving this khaki green polish for fall! It’s Beau Khaki by Sinful Colors.)

This spotted mystery orchid is blooming after surviving some bug damage earlier this year — so glad it’s feeling better! I love my studio flowers.

The Large Alternating Earrings are lightweight statement earrings that won’t weigh you down. You’ll hardly notice you’re wearing them — until a colleague compliments them. They’re a perfect conversation piece for a conference travel wardrobe: they’re easy to pack, and they go with everything.

Pair them with the Alternating Necklace and the Alternating Bracelet, and mix and match them with your capsule wardrobe to your heart’s content. (Add the Small Alternating Earrings for casual walks on the beach and errand day too!) They add a little easy polish to a day-to-night look (or a video conference.)

Alternating jewelry series by Wraptillion: modern industrial linked circle chain necklace, earrings, and bracelet

Fun fact: Wraptillion’s modern industrial jewelry is made from easy-care stainless steel specialized engineering components used in planes, cars, motorcycles, and more. I link each piece together with titanium (by hand, using chainmail techniques — I’m an artist, not a machine!) in my studio near Seattle, Washington. These classic designs might not look handmade, but they definitely have a story. See more about my process here.
