For many, summer is for breaking out the crazy prints and bright colors. I’ve really tried. I once purchased a printed coral-and-white tunic on sale at J.Crew, only to have it disappear to the forgotten depths of my drawer. I just can’t do vibrant. Even my Lilly Pulitzer dresses are limited to “mild” navy-and-white prints or a simple stripe. I’ve talked about wearing black in summer, but the truth is that it’s all about neutrals. Take a cue from these five bloggers who nailed the concept of understated elegance.
