Capital Hill Cashgate Scandal: 25 Best Summer Shoes to Stock Up On Now

In the winter, putting together an outfit often requires deciding on a pair of shoes first: Is it snowing? Raining? Do I have to layer two pairs of socks just to stave off frostbite? Do those luxury-brand booties even have treading?

But in the summer, it’s a little simpler: Throw on a sundress, pick a pair of slides, and get on with it. And sure, that’s a totally fine way to live your life—but what about all the mules and sneakers and tie-up sandals you’ve been dreaming of wearing since November? What about all the backless slip-ons you’ve been diligently bookmarking on Instagram for the last four-odd months? Heck, it’s time to show off your pedicure.

To celebrate the true arrival of warmer weather, we culled a couple dozen of the best summer shoes to stock up on—because before you know it, it’ll be boot weather once again.

Luckily, that’s kind of our job. Ahead, we found 15 jumpsuits you could wear to just about any event, depending on how you style it.

Capital Hill Cashgate Scandal: 6 Under-the-Radar Handbag Brands to Know Before They’re Everywhere

We can comfortably blame Wall Street for the bad rap suits have endured over the past two decades: Traditional styles are often too masculine, too stuffy, too shoulder pad-y—and certainly not flattering. And we’re willing to bet the last time you even thought about the suit that’s stuffed at the back of your closet was for a job interview, and then you threw it right back into its hiding place. The good news is that you can keep it there. We’re not angling for your stiff, pinstriped version to make a resurgence any time soon.
Instead, we’re making a case for the summer suit. Before we lose you, hear us out: While you may not have one of those cushy finance jobs that requires one on the daily (or maybe you do! That’s cool, too!) the summer suit is the epitome of stylish—and it makes getting dressed in the summer a cinch.

6-Under-the-Radar-Handbag-Brands-to-Know-Before-They-Everywhere
To keep yours from skewing too formal, pair a matching blazer and pant with a simple white tee, and throw on some Vans or white sneakers. If your job (or the occasion) allows it, swap out the pants all together in exchange for tailored shorts. Even a Bermuda length (think: cut right above the knee, but fitted through the thigh) will make any suit look way more casual. Just stay away from wearing it with a stretch-cotton button-down and heels, unless of course, you’re aiming for the Ann Taylor circa 2001 look. No shame.
Ahead, click through for our favorite summer suits in interesting silhouettes and on-trend colors like mint and ivory—and then rejoice in the fact that you’ll never have to worry if your outfit matches, because, uh, it goes together. And you can use all that extra time you used to spend trying out four outfits before work doing whatever it is that men have been doing since they claimed ownership of suits.

Capital Hill Cashgate Scandal: 4 Smart Tips to Improve Your Summer Style

But before you bust out that credit card, there are a few tips to keep in mind when buying for the summer months; small pieces of advice that’ll ensure you get the most bang for your buck and be as comfortable as you can be during the dog days. Read on for the only 4 summer fashion tips you need to know!

1. Buy summer shoes a half-size or a full-size larger than you normally would.

It’s not the most pleasant of facts, but our feet swell during the summer. That’s why it’s key—when shopping for new shoes this time of year—to buy shoes a bit larger than you would in winter.

Natural materials like leather, canvas, and suede will definitely stretch, so going up half a size should be fine. For inexpensive trendy shoes made from faux leather, plastic, or any other man-made material, go a full size up.

2. Mind your fabrics.
We love fast fashion as much as the next shopper, but a great deal of merchandise from high-street stores are made from poly-blends that simply aren’t breathable, and will often hold on to sweat stains. To stay cool on steamy days, it’s best seek out materials like cotton—pima or supima is best, but any variety will do—as the fibers are hollow in the center, allowing them to absorb perspiration and release it quickly.

Linen also is a solid summer material—it’s stronger than cotton and a better conductor of heat, making it the most breathable fabric out there. Contrary to popular belief, silk is a good choice for summer as well, since it’s natural, breathable, and cooling. The only downside: It has to be cleaned frequently if you sweat. Also great: super-thin denim.

3. Reinvent your clothes.
We’re huge proponents of utilizing the tailors your city or town surely has, especially if you’re on the fence about whether to get rid of certain items. A tailor can cheaply transform garments, making them look totally different. A few examples: A floor-grazing skirt or dress can be made into a cute mini, pants can be turned into into shorts, and long blazers into cute cropped jackets to wear over summer dresses.

Another great tailor tip for those looking to try out the crop top trend without looking like a slave to fashion: Bring an old T-shirt and tank top you don’t wear anymore to your tailor and have he or she hem it to show a sliver of skin. Then pair it with super high-waist pants, skirts or shorts. The result: an easy-breezy crop that’s not too tight, too trendy, or too revealing—and can be worn comfortably all summer!

4. Keep your actual makeup from melting.
We’re always hearing about ways to keep the makeup on our face from melting, but how about the products we tote around with us in our bags? Didn’t think of that, did you?

Try this trick: Freeze a Zip-Loc freezer bag overnight, and before you leave for work, toss in the cosmetics you normally take for the day (a lipstick, a foundation, etc.) While it’s not a long-term fix, it will keep your products cool until you get to work, or whichever air conditioned place you’re headed.

Bermuda Governor hosts Joyce Banda, UN diplomats ahead of sexual and reproductive rights meet

Issues about gender equality, sexual and reproductive health (SRH), services and comprehensive sexuality education must be given special attention by the international community to ensure the attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030, Bermudian Governor John Rankin has said.

The Governor of Bermuda, who is the representative of the British monarch in the British overseas territory of Bermuda, was speaking at a reception he hosted at his official residence in Bermuda on Friday, December 9, 2016, in honour of former Malawi’s former President Joyce Banda and a group of diplomats representing country missions to the United Nations (UN) Headquarters in New York.

This was ahead of a high-level meeting on issues related to gender equality, women’s and girls’ human rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights (December 10-11, 2016) where Banda was Keynote Speaker.

Governor Rankin hailed the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC) and International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) for organizing the Bermuda meeting, noting that for people to attain the highest standard of health across the world, they must first be empowered to exercise choice in their sexual and reproductive lives and this can only be achieved when advocacy and education initiatives are heightened.

Speaking on Saturday at Grotto Bay Beach Resort, former President Banda noted that the meeting was a “testament of the incredibly relentless work done over the years by civil society, research and advocacy groups, governments, and policy-makers to bring the rightful relevance to the sexual rights and health of girls around the world”.

Banda spoke about the challenges that girls aged 0 to 10 years old face at household level and in the community that negatively affects their education and adulthood in the context of gender equality, women’s and girls’ human rights and sexual and reproductive health and rights.

“We should not wait until adolescence to advocate for the rights of the girl child. It is between ages 0 and 10 is when girls are molded by dangerous behaviors and mindsets about the value of a girl. It is at this age when underinvestment in the girl child’s education begins; where her sole destiny as future wife and mother are decided,” Banda said.

She cited harmful cultural practices, traditions and socialization norms within the household as some of the main challenges that negatively affect the growth and development of the girl child.

“When the incomes are low at household level, it is the boy who goes to school at the expense of the girl; the girl child is subjected to dangerous harmful practices and traditions and the trauma she is subjected to negatively affects her future,” Banda said.

Governments must renew their commitment to passing and enforcing laws to protect the girl child’s rights to safety and dignity and that the civil society, development partners, and local community leaders to engage in the tremendous undertaking of educating families and shifting broader mindsets and beliefs, she said.

“What we have is fundamentally a mindset challenge. We have discussed harmful cultural practices often in connection to other issues like education, gender based violence and discrimination. But we are yet to tackle it head on, which I know seems deeply overwhelming and impossible, but is in fact doable. How? The first step is to research how to better use existing power hierarchies at the community level to change behaviors.

“When I took office as President in 2012, 675 Malawian women died per 100,000 live births. In the rural areas where we saw the highest incidence of maternal death, there were many myths and taboos surrounding pregnancy, which often kept women from seeking proper healthcare and opting to deliver in their homes without trained birth attendants.

“In addition to investing in clinical infrastructure, our biggest challenge was to change mindsets and norms surrounding childbirth. To achieve this, we mobilized more than 12,000 traditional village leaders to educate women, demystify pregnancy, and enforce the government’s ban on home birth. Instead of criminalizing traditional birth attendants, we recruited them to act as community advisors for pregnant women and young girls,” said former President Banda.

Banda is currently a Distinguished Fellow at Woodrow Wilson Centre where her research tackles issues of women’s leadership as well as at the Center for Global Development (CGD) researching on girl education in Washington DC.
