Our love affair with Free People runs deep. The breezy silhouettes, wearable fabrics, and trendy (but never too over-the-top) styles make it the first domain we type in when we begin our online shopping hunt. This summer, we’re enamored with all things beachy, versatile and easy-to-wear, including shell jewelry, boho dresses, and chic swimsuits, so we were excited—but not surprised—to find that the latest Free People launches nail the vibe.
Shot along the beaches of the Philippines and the moonlit streets of Hong Kong, the retailer’s exclusive May lookbook encapsulates the feeling of escaping to a far-away location for a summer holiday. Representing the key product trends of the season (think flowy dresses, white beach essentials, and colorful swimwear), the pieces feel perfect for a jet-setting adventure or for a summer weekend spent in at home. While the full collection doesn’t launch until May 6, scroll for an exclusive sneak peek into the catalog, filled with some of our favorite, effortless looks for balmy summer days and cool summer nights…
One of our key staples items every summer is an easy dress that can look just as at home at the office as it does for post-work dinner (and then maybe post-dinner drinks with friends). We’ll be dressing this bright red number down with combat boots and dressing it up with strappy heels, depending on the occasion.
Like we said, versatility and grab-and-go pieces are the key to an easy summer wardrobe. Opt for a bright, striped bikini for a day in the sun, and style it with crochet pants and a hero bag for later on.
This chic minidress is patiently sitting in our virtual shopping carts waiting to be purchased. We’ll be pairing it with rainbow earrings and a bright tote because if we’re going out for the night, we’d prefer to turn heads, thank you very much.
