Katie Schuppler is a style blogger and style expert in Chicago. I really enjoy her informative blog, Fashion Speak. Her personal styling consulting business, KS Style Consulting, has been a go-to business for Chicago women who want to stay stylish and benefit from her fashion expertise. I recently asked her about her favorite items for the upcoming summer. Here are five of her must-haves for fashionable Chicago women.
1. Scallop Shorts
These silk shorts from Hy and Dot are perfect for the beach or a summer concert.
2. Peplum Dress
Julie Haus’ Novak Peplum dress with the trendy back exposed zipper is the chic choice for a night out on the town.
3. Totally Messenger Bag
The right accessory completes any outfit. This Marc Jacobs messenger bag is the ideal handbag to carry around Chicago all summer.
4. Bombshell Dress
This flirty peach pink sleeveless minidress from Naven is a great dress for hot summer nights.
5. Floral Jumpsuit
Diane Von Fustenberg‘s elegant clothes are always ready to wear. This blue floral lace jumpsuit is a must-wear for spring or summer.
