Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: Light up your desert drab summertime go-to outfit with a pair of bright red Blank NYC jeans. So long as your leisurely sunbathing doesn't leave your skin matching the fiery tomato threads, this soft, skinny pair will fashionably heat up any daytime look.
Where: Boutique Solie
Style It: Already infected with Olympic fever, we decided to style the jeans with a nod toward the upcoming games. A gold-tone Stella McCartney whistle and silvery sequin slip-ons from Jimmy Choo score points on the metallic front, while the dramatic 3.1 Philip Lim PVC pop art tote captures the tears that often accompany Olympians' blood and sweat. Top off the sportif-infused outfit with a silky, semi-sheer Tory Burch blouse with navy blue piping. After all, a little layer of ladylike is always appreciated on the playing field.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
