To Use The Scout Guide Summer fashion is about chic simplicity. In fact, beautifully crafted basics are the foundation of a successful summer wardrobe that allows us to look effortlessly put together. To help us assemble the ideal summer closet, we asked Cyndi Hawkes and Liz Scheer, owners of the impeccably edited Chagrin Falls, Ohio-based boutique Juicy Lucy, which pieces make their list of summer essentials.

A Scouted Abode: TSG New Orleans Editor Taylor Morgan's Uptown Apartment

When discussing her new home, it’s clear that adhering to this principle has worked well for TSG New Orleans editor Taylor Morgan—though her abode is an example of the idea with a twist: Morgan chose to enlist local businesses she loves to create the perfect new personal environment, starting with designer Shaun Smith of Shaun Smith Home.

A natural storyteller, Morgan wanted to know the history behind all of Smith’s finds, but he resisted, hinting that she’d appreciate them more if he didn’t tell all of his secrets—just as she appreciated his work even more because he’d spared her the anxiety and stress of decision-making.

Guest Curator: Erica Hanks's 7 Favorite Spring 2015 Trends

To help us round out our spring closets, we checked in with TSG: Charlotte stylist ERICA HANKS to find out which fashion trends she’s excited about for the upcoming season. Everyone needs a go-to flat for spring, and while flip flops and sneakers are a safe route, Aquazzura lace up flats can be worn with literally everything in your closet and will elevate your casual look from good to amazing. I love this Marc by Marc Jacobs military-inspired skirt with oversized pockets and flared silhouette, which can be worn super casual with a tank top and flats or casual chic with a feminine blouse and jacket. Erica Hanks is a wardrobe stylist whose work extends beyond her group of professionals, athletes, and well-known men and women across the country to commercial and editorial wardrobe styling for corporate companies, national campaigns, catalogs, TV segments and magazines.
