Everlane Cotton Sweater

We'll be the first to admit that we don't exactly handle the heat too well; an overconsumption of iced coffees coupled with a bit of whining is typically how we deal with temperatures that hit the 90s and above. Thankfully, we find a bit of reprieve in the evenings when a cool ocean breeze blows all of our summertime woes away. And just in case that cool ocean breeze gets a little too chilly, we've got this Cotton Sweater from Everlane. It's relaxed and easy (so it can slip right over whatever we've got on), with just the slightest high-low hem. And come fall, it'll transition beautifully into our cool weather wardrobe. 

Kate Spade

We absolutely adore the Kate Spade label, so hearing about an expansion makes us very, very happy. Kate Spade & Co. announced last week that several new lines are being added to the lineup, including athleisure, sleepwear (yay!), kitchen accessories, and various other licensing deals. "Interesting women leading interesting lives are at the core of our brand. We aim to provide our customer with the products she loves for all aspects of her interesting life. Our best-in-class licensing partners allow us to thoughtfully expand our lifestyle offerings — from athleisure to sleepwear, cookware to furniture — in a way that is uniquely Kate Spade New York," Mary Beech, the brand's executive VP and chief marketing officer said in a statement. The expansion certainly comes as a surprise after the brand's lower-priced Kate Spade Saturday line folded earlier this year. Expect to see the new Kate Spade lines launching as early as this fall and in Spring 2016. 

 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has really made a name for herself in the fashion set, and is a photo favorite when it comes to street style, so it was just a matter of time before she jumped into the fashion game as a designer. The "Bad Blood" singer inked a deal with Chinese e-tailer JD.com, according to a report from CNN Money. The clothing line will apparently include dresses, sweatshirts, and tops, and will be sold in JD.com's "U.S. Mall," alongside other "authentic American products." The line will debut later this summer, when Swift takes her 1989 tour to Shanghai.

 

Converse Chuck Taylor
The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star is about as iconic as Cinderella's glass shoe and Dorothy's ruby red slipper; seriously, even people who are sneaker heads are familiar with the simple design of this Converse tennis shoe. Now, for the first time in almost a hundred years the shoe is getting a redesign. The Converse Chuck Taylor All Star II looks like the original, but now contains the innovative Nike Lunarlon technology, so they're more comfortable and conducive for the girl or guy on the go. "The Chuck Taylor All Star is one of the most legendary and iconic sneakers of all time," said Converse President and CEO Jim Calhoun. "The launch of Chuck II is a ground-breaking moment for Converse as we continue to move the brand forward through creativity and innovation, ushering in not just a new sneaker, but a completely new way of thinking."

Bisou Crossbody clutch

Most of the time, we just want to throw our stuff in a bag and run out the door, so we need a bag that's not too bulky or heavy, and in fact, the smaller the better (so we're not tempted to bring along a bunch of unnecessary lip glosses or extra pairs of sunglasses). This Bisou Crossbody Clutch is beyond perfect. Besides being completely adorable (those little kisses are just too cute), it's one of the most practical bags in our collection because it's just big enough for the essentials, and the gold-tone crossbody strap ensures that we don't have to fuss with it at all, keeping our hands free for other things, like trying on new lipgloss.

Lily-Rose Depp for Chanel

As if being Johnny Depp's daughter wasn't cool enough, Lily-Rose Depp is now the new face of  French fashion house Chanel. And as if that wasn't cool enough, Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel's creative director, reportedly handpicked the 16-year old beauty himself after she appeared in the Chanel Haute Couture Presentation at Paris Fashion Week.  "Lily-Rose is stunning, she's a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star," the Kaiser said in a statement. Lagerfeld also shot the campaign images himself. The young star, who is clearly following in the footsteps of her famous parents, looks completely gorgeous in the ads wearing pearl-studded Chanel sunnies and a vampy pout.

 

Katy Perry for H&M Holiday 2015

Katy Perry kicked off the year with an epic Super Bowl performance, and now the "This Is How We Do" singer is rounding out 2015 by starring in H&M's holiday campaign (yes, we realize it's only July, but this is pretty major, right?). The pop star took to Instagram to make the announcement, saying, "I am excited to announce that I will be starring in H&M's Happy and Merry Holiday Campaign launching later this year!!! Stay tuned for the whole unwrapping!" Perry, who joins past campaign stars Beyonce and Gisele Bundchen, also credits the Swedish fashion retailer for helping her cultivate her personal style. The campaign's ads will launch this November.

 

Selena MACSelena

M.A.C. has launched beauty collections with some of the entertainment industries hottest celebrities, but now the beauty brand is set to debut a collection inspired by a celebrity who passed away 20 years ago--Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla. "Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades," said M.A.C. Sr. Vice President James Gager. "We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M.A.C.'s philosophy." No further details about the collection have been released, but we do know it will be inspired by Selena's fifth and final album, Dreaming of You, and will launch in late 2016.

Dajheonna Lanay Perry, FIDM Fashion Club President and senior at Cass Technical High School in Detroit, Michigan, shares her Top 10 Playlist and her style! Also, check out her Fashion Club on Instagram @highfashionsocietyct!

Hey! I'm Dajheonna Perry and I'm president of High Fashion Society, the FIDM Fashion Club at Cass Technical High School in Detroit. As a child, I was always forced to dress how my grandmother wanted me to. Now that I've matured, my true inner style has burst!

I love shopping and retail—spending long days at the mall with my friends from High Fashion Society. My style is easy-going and my favorite places to shop are thrift stores, H&M, and C'est La Vie! I can budget shop because clothes don't wear me—I wear the clothing!

I usually wear natural colors, but this summer I decided to get comfortable with prints and I brought several items from Forever 21. I love dark and nude colors. I also love makeup and hair styling because they truly set the tone to my daily fit.

Being 5'7" for the past years, I've struggled with confidence. But lately I've been progressing and I'm starting to love my height!

My favorite shoe designers are Valentino and Steve Madden. My favorite season is fall because I love the beautiful weather, fall colors, and hot cocoa!

I'm just starting to discover my style. It's diverse and indescribable. I love boyfriend jeans and Vans, but I can also sport a blazer and a pair of jeans.

I love fashion, having fun, and working with people! Fashion gives me a great opportunity to express myself in an impeccable way everyday. I really want to attend FIDM and I hope to receive a scholarship. And this is why I'm a Future Fashion Queen!
