Summer Sendoff

The Stylist Dispatch: Summer Sendoff

As summer draws to a close, even in perpetually sunny Florida, there’s a noticeable shift in fashion trends with the arrival of fall. To bid a stylish farewell to the sunniest months, we sought advice from Kimmie Sussman, the resident stylist at Aventura Mall. She’s curated a collection of outfits that exude a particular vibe and consist of versatile pieces that transition well into the next season. These ensembles are thoughtfully categorized for various occasions, each with its unique aspirational flair. What unites them all is the confidence and polish they bring to your look.
