Summertime and the livin' is eeeeasy. But wait, Terez, how am I supposed to pair your workout gear with my fave pair of Birkenstocks? We thought you’d never ask.
That’s why we teamed up with one of our favorite babes, Pamela Katz, along with Shopbop and The Shoebox, to show you how to style your favorite performance leggings to new summery heights. Liquid sunshine and effortlessly beachy waves not included.
And in case you didn't already know, Pamela is kind of a jack-of-all-trades. Style guru, model, DJ, beauty connoisseur—chick's got it alllll goin' on. So read on for a look into what she's wearing, what's on her playlists, and where she's traveling to this summer.
White on White on White
Though we've never been one to really follow fashion "rules," nothing says summer quite like an all-white ensemble. Pairing our new White Crystal Skull Leggings with our very own basic White Muscle Tank, a classic white jean jacket, and some trendy strappy sandals makes this look ready for both brunch and the boardwalk.
Oh, and in case you haven't heard, our White Crystal Skull Leggings are *officially* a "must-have activewear item of the summer" according to the experts at well+good.
But what are some of Pamela's trendy summer staples? "As for denim, I'm keeping a close eye on all cropped and cool cut bottoms of jeans. Every summer I find a new toe ring, anklet and choker. Already nailed the choker with my new "vintage twin" denim one. On the hunt for some cute foot jewels!"
Crop It Like It's Hot
We know: Crop tops? For summer? Groundbreaking.
BUT what sets these bad boys apart from that little scrap of fabric you reach for when it's too hot for normal clothes:
1) The standout print will elevate even the most #basic pair of shorts (though this pair from Shopbop is anything but basic).
2) This crop top is reversible. Aka basically two tops in one. And, in addition to having a sports bra built in, it gives just a touch of extra coverage than your typical crop. No underboob here, ladies.
3) The most important point: the crop's fabric is meant to be sweat in! So whether you're actually working out, or just accidentally got stuck on the one subway car without AC, this top has got your back.
Pamela's travel necessities for beating the summer heat? "Surviving long trips means I have my Polaroid camera on me at all times! Also, my Bain de Soleil. Very important - it helps build my tan to a bronze so I don't get red since I am fare-skinned. I always bring my headphones with me. They are natural colored Master Dynamic headphones and they rock. Sunglasses are always a necessity! Last but not least, I always have my Levi's denim jacket on hand."
And this chick has a big travel destination on her calendar: "Definitely siked for Aspen, Colorado in September to plan my wedding!
Keep It Casual

We've all been there: One of those sluggish summer days when even just the idea of creating an outfit with a semblance of looking put-together is exhausting. In situations like this, eye-catching details will be an absolute lifesaver for you.

The edgy mesh inserts on these Black Mesh Multi-Stitch Leggings are complemented perfectly by this cheeky tee. Paired with summery sandals or your go-to sneaks, we've done all the thinking for you here.
Casual and cool (both literally and figuratively). You know what else is cool? Pamela's top summer artists: "Grimes, Rihanna, Kygo, Aaron Neville (old soul but love him to pieces), and Drinkee by Sofi Tukker." It's safe to say we have these on repeat right now.
