Outfit of the Week: Polished Palms

Jesse L. Brooks


When you think of summer prints featuring palm trees, your mind most likely goes to lots of color. This week we're proving that palms can be worn in chic style, especially for those who love our favorite go-to color: black. 

Johanna Ortiz's Resort 2022 skirt offers a relaxed fit with a midi hemline featuring an eye-catching, embroidered palm tree accompanied by two birds of paradise. We put up our snazzy skirt with a more pared-down top that keeps things chic and simple. A charming separate to see you through the remainder of summer, FRAME's Nina blouse is crafted from poplin cotton with gently puffed sleeves and a flattering square neckline. 

Continuing to allow the snazzy skirt to be the star, we kept accessories on the refined and sophisticated side. Gianvito Rossi's black crepe sandals are designed with unique, intricate cut-out straps sitting upon a 4-inch heel adds pizazz to the ensemble. For another tropical touch, we couldn't resist this darling wicker bag by BTB Los Angeles. A chunky chain tops this charming design. 

Polishing off our look with a splash of sass and class is Prada's stripe detail cat-eye sunglasses and a pearl Palm Tree brooch by Chanel. If we are going to be looking this good, we better smell divine too. Tom Ford's Black Orchid parfum is the perfect finishing touch, offering notes of Orchid, Black Truffle, and Patchouli. 

Whether you're stepping up your office attire or dressing up for an evening out on vacation, everyone is sure to swoon over your take on "Polished Palms."
