Look hot this summer with a sleeveless silk top. Banana Republic has half a dozen tops worth wearing. The red silk top shown here is described on their site as follows: "Knotted straps and a macramé woven front give this top a unique, handmade appeal, but it takes an elevated turn when worn with a ribbon belt, which creates a ladylike empire waist from its silky bodice."

Implications - The influence of seasons and weather on fashion is undeniable. Specific seasons in fashion signify the prominence of certain colors, cuts and textures that are reflective of the marriage between practicality and style as they are inspired both by the current climate and popular elements of style captured in magazines and the media.
