Gingham print pants in an ankle crop fit may be this summer's trendiest dressing piece. We're crazy about how this fashion blogger has styled her black-and-white checkerboard print pants, by pairing them with floral prints. This is advanced pattern mixing that works, because of the dark background on the florals. Check out the floral ankle boots too, which look just right for city wear this summer.

Every woman needs a standout blouse in her wardrobe, for wearing with everything from jeans to pencil skirts. Here's a fabulous piece to add to your wardrobe this season —a long, high-neck, full-sleeved tunic blouse in a red picnic print. If you buy a long top that doesn't come with its own self-belt (as this one from Finland's Teja fashion brand does), consider cinching your waist with a skinny belt worn over the blouse, to define your figure.

That doesn't mean you can't look polished in a summer dress, though. Here, a black and white gingham summer dress gets a street style upgrade, with the addition of a waist-cinching belt, pearl earrings, and strappy platform sandals.
